Can you guess the movie?




I'll completely understand if this piece is moved if it's too graphic

Is it a John Wayne movie. This is great :)

It's the Wild Bunch, directed by Sam Pekinpah, starring William Holden etc, etc...

And I'm sorry, but the best western ever made is undoubtedly The Searchers (starring John Wayne). John Ford knew no equal. Huff!

Anyway, liked the painting (great detail on the machine gun). Needs more mess to really capture the essence of the movie though.

Excellent job on this.
I do have to agree with drawman39 tho.
My pick of the best Western ever, has to be The Searchers, followed closely by Shane, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Dances With Wolves, and Open Range.
Regardless - great job!

Terrific painting - do believe The Wild Bunch???

Greatest western though - it's been a toss up for me between "Once Upon A Time in the West" and "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". For "traditional" westerns, yes, "The Searcher" and "Shane" will forever stand out. And "The Wild Bunch" IS one hell of a great movie. :)
