wow, great colorful study and sketch. Off to a great start.
I know it is a cowboy, but at this stage it looks a bit like
Don Quixote. ha ha. :D

gzairborne - Yeah, I agree with the Don Quixote look. I'll just add a windmill and... No wait that will not work. I was trying to have him holding a rifle off his hip. I revised and will revisit this when I get to the cowboy.

UDATED
Cactus color
added some line work the painting. (I know who whould have thunk it :D line work from me)
removed the Don Quixote effect
various small changes

NEXT
More surfacing cactus work
then adding the needles
more forground grass
Add hill detail

Enchater - glad you like it. I have about 5 layers. For some reason I have been avoiding the background. I mostly work from back to front but I focused on the cactus for some reason.

Sorry the stupid comment made you take out the rifle. This looks great.
The rifle was also very cool touch. Can't wait to see the finished one.
Really fine work.

It takes a bit of time working at almost 4k x 3k resolution but the end result will print well
