I had a need for Western!Stucky, so this happened.
Bucky’s character inspiration is Paladin from Have Gun Will Travel. Paladin is a knight errant/gun for hire with a very strong drive to defend those weaker than himself.
Steve’s character inspiration is Roy Rogers. I chose to combine these two because I see both of them as the ‘go out and do the right thing’ kind of men.
The thing that got me interested in doing this one was how wide Bucky’s eyes were in the screenshot, and how haunted he looks.
The colors came out pretty interesting, too; kinda muted and watery. I left the ink rougher than usual since it is an intense scene, but I think it works.
*I don’t know if his bottom lip was wet in the screenshot, but it sure looks like it here…
**I’m dipping my toe into the *very mild end* of the Hydra Trashcan.
