I'm not sure whether this should go here or in Off-Topic. It is spaghetti related, but feel free if I've chosen wrongly to move it.

One of my resolutions for this year was to improve my drawing ability, and I've decided that I need a regular project to keep me on track. I've been giving some thought to drawing a spaghetti westernesque web comic. I'm messing around with styles right now, and you can see some of my sketches and doodles at http://spaghettiwest.blogspot.com

I'd love to hear comments or suggestions or opinions or even criticism and nay-saying from you guys. I'm not as extremely versed in spaghettis as you guys are, but I've seen a bunch. All the Leones. My Name is Nobody. Django. Some of the Sabatas and Sartanas. Trinity. Still haven't been able to buy a good copy of Death Rides a Horse, but I know for sure that I'm never going to chance it on the $5.50 version again.

Anyway, right now I'm trying to decide on the visual style and what sorts of characters and stories I should use. Here's some art samples of what I've done in the past few weeks:



(I forgot about the Stranger who carries the umbrella. I also don't speak Italian, so this might not be correct!  :D).



A half-ass Django.



A doodle of Bud n' Terence.

Like I said, I'd love to hear what you guys think!

I think it's a very good idea, keep it up. :)



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

Wow, I really like the direction you're taking, these sketches are great and they have their own style to them (your own style), which is fantastic. Looking forward to more, keep us posted!

Thanks everyone for the positive reaction. Still trying to figure out what to do for a story. In the meantime, here's the first in a (hopefully) series of spaghetti characters, the one who started it all (Sort of, though under a different name....): Blondie!

Awesome! Can I suggest as a possible storyline some sort of past adventure between Blondie, angel eyes, and Tuco? It seems that Blondie and Tuco know Angel eyes already when they are put in the prison camp....

Eric, this is a fantastic idea my friend. Coming from a fellow artist, I can say your work is pretty great. I like your style. If you get around to finishing a full spaghetti western comic book, I'd love to have a copy. Keep us posted! Great work my friend! O0

You know looking at these pictures, I wouldn't mine someday down the line if someone made a spaghetti western animation movie. I think it would be cool in my opinion.

That would be pretty awesome. Some would say it's already been done in anime -- Cowboy Bebop or Trigun are most often cited -- but there's too much sci-fi for my taste.

So you're an artist, TB? I'd love to see some of your work.

That would be very cool! In Eric's style. ;)
