Down at the Western Gateway by lily-fox Down at the Western Gateway by lily-fox
Fanart for a friend's old-west Toy Story fic (which she's since taken down); our heroes chillin' at Buzz's bar, the Western Gateway.

Bo was a total hassle. She started off casual and ended up all stiff and prim, which sort of works for her character, kind of? But not that severe. But then, my favorite western is Angel and the Badman -- there's a lot to be said for the rough, gruff cowboy falling for a good girl.

Bargirl!Jessie is the shit. She packs a pistol and a punch, I'm sure. Woe betide the dude who gets fresh with her. I really love letting her hair down.

Buzz, the proprietor, is a big gent. Heart of a lion, soul of a puppy. Willing to give anybody the benefit of the doubt.

And Sheriff Woody, well... He's had some hard knocks. Taken some slugs, taken down more than a few of the lawless. Does what a man has to do. In his heart, I think he'd like to chuck this gig and settle down with a good woman, maybe a certain woman, maybe raise some horses. Live the life. Until then, he'll keep things safe around Redemption.

props: characters Disney/Pixar

I like it. You should do it the other way too with all the characters in a space theme.

Wow! :O

I can still recognize each as their character, but all are different enough to where the all fit the genre.
I couldn't believe the Buzz would look at home here, but he does- I suppose being a 'space ranger' would be reason enough to include him in a Western theme. To have him as the bartender is pretty great too.

Very interesting indeed. Can't get enough of those boy's eyebrows.. man. :P

lily-fox Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2011
I couldn't even begin to know how to make a pose tutorial, I just... I don't know, I look at people and imagine them standing or sitting or whatever, the way I want. :D I recommend looking for photos of poses you want and working from reference.

Jaredraptor Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010
Never read the fic, but if it's awesme enough to influence this then it's definitely going on my list of "good fanfiction to get around to reading eventually".

Though when depicted like this, I imagine Woody's voice more like Jimmy Stewart's than Tom Hanks'. Not sure if that's good or not, but whatev :XD:
Halloweennut Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
awesome pic! i love how you draw woody!
and Buzz..

can i get a link to the story? [cause i can't find it thtough the link in ze comments]
Kazekuro Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
I am trying to find the fic this goes with because seriously I NEED to read it now do you have a more direct link or do you know if it's on

I love the feel of the drawing, just how each character is in the scene with each other you can see direct personalities coming out of their faces. The effect of it being on more parchment like paper thats been aged just gives it this very authentic feel that seems to be a constant in your work.

On a personal note: Angel and the Badman = One of the best movies made back when acting and presence was a requirement.
lily-fox Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010
You know, I know she compiled all the vignettes into one LJ entry, I just canNOT find it. I'll have to ask her, and then I'll post a link in the artist comments, cool?
Kazekuro Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
thank you I appreciate it Lily. Your work is wonderful I've been sending people over to your gallery since I came across it. You really are amazing- and any story that spawns such delightful work has to be just as good after all, life is too short for boring FanFic. >^.^<
