Redcoat West - Scout Duty by Teq-Uila Redcoat West - Scout Duty by Teq-Uila
Oh man I am so happy right now, I got dA working long enough to submit a picture for a contest! It is so random to get it working, it loads correctly then funks out or doesn't load at all but works OK for just one random page, etc. It's been like this for a few months now.

My entry for NatAsplund's contest about her Redcoat West webcomic, it's an adventure set in the 1880s (which is one of my fave periods to read about in history).

Samuel Banks having a rough ride on scout duty, somewhere along the Alberta foothills. I picked Sam because I really like his character design and his appearance in the comic so far! I imagined the mounted police had to cover a tough range of terrain back in the 1880s, but I was also hugely influenced by amazing photos of endurance horse riding (which I tried to reference correctly for the horse pose).

And I wonder if Samuel will turn out to be a minor villain because of nothing much being known about him, or if he’ll be one of those guys who kinda keep quiet about themselves but are helpful to other folks.

I hope to finish a second entry too. :noes:

All comments are appreciated! :w00t:

Thank you so much for your kind comment, glad you speculate the same! Apologies for the late reply, dA works very poorly for me in recent times...
