Sir Gawain + the Green Knight by KaiCarpenter Sir Gawain + the Green Knight by KaiCarpenter
I love the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and it SO WORKS with cowboys!!!

Careful - if you look at NC Wyeth's Green Knight...you might see what I stoooolle..... :) Ah well, we're all glad he's dead. mofo makes us all feel bad and he aint even alive.

in gouache

Fantastic artwork. Really grabs my attention and captures a lot about the wild west that I like.

Just a note I used the art in a blog post for a tabletop skirmish game here: [link] I linked the picture back to this page though so hopefully that's fine.

The heat! I get thirsty looking at it. The intense warmth of the secondary lighting and the chiaroscuro black of the central characters head all contrasted right against the intense bright desert floor. Boom. Favorited.

I've looked around for Wyeth's Green Knight (to see what you stole) and can't find it. Can you give us a reference? btw. I really like your illustration!

Thanks Kai, right after I asked the question I realized my mistake. I was looking for "Sir Gawain & the Green Knight" when I should have been looking for just "The Green Knight". Looks like you borrowed his tree and his sky.
I've taken ideas from N.C. myself. He was a rare talent.
