Western Heracles

Some more studies from the same assignment as my Momotaro designs. These are characters based loosely (I stress loosely) on Heracles and his 12 labors. I'll have more of an explanation later.

My Heracles design could use a bit more fleshing out and a bit more exaggeration. He's meek at the moment, which is what I wanted, but not as awkward as I think he should be. Oh and yes I realize that his boots aren't "true" cowboy boots in terms of shape. I'll have to fix that in a future rendition.

Edit: I can't believe that I didn't notice way earlier in my colouring process that the boy has a colour scheme and shirt very similar to a particular cowboy from Toy Story. Well this one goes to the trash.
