Sheriff Landers has caught up to Old Redd, who made off in a steam rocket with a barrel of Mrs. Clark’s moonshine. Redd is being charged with theft, assault with a firearm, and improper conduct in the presence of a lady. He is facing up to 20 years in prison, a twelve dollar fine, and a belly full of buckshot.
The sheriff is venting plasma from his right arm pretty badly, but he’ll be fine if he can get this shot off and incapacitate the red giant so he can tend to his wound. But the question is: can he hit a large, bright, stationary target in the open from less than 7 meters away with a shotgun?Only time will tell (SPOILER: the answer is yes)
Landers & Redd are both specimens of a space-faring people I call "Novakid," which is a no-good race of humanoid gas-bags. If you want to read more about them, I made an info dump full of fake facts in a thread here: [link]
I came up with this idea by looking as ~Suweeka
’s sketch of aliens
, and then from listening to too much Old Joe Clark
. Then I was like "OMG PUT COWBOY HAT ON STAR PEOPLE" and lo and behold, it was done. The space genre can only benefit from more
cowboys, in my opinion.
This was a fun exercise in lighting. At one point I was thinking to myself "wait, if these guys are glowing, why isn't any light showing through their clothes?" and then I settled for their clothes being made of lead or something. I'm sure there's tons of bad science in this picture, like coats and gases billowing in a near-vacuum.
