"Salty Eyes" McGee is my entry for the Space Cowboy contest over on Flickr. He's a less-futuristic, more-Firefly-esque character; imagine an alien "cowboy" planetbound in a rugged frontier setting rather than flying through space in a shiny starship, and you're on the right track.

He's decked out with a pair of bolt-action rifles, a wide hat and headwrap to counteract those nasty borderland dust storms, and his trusty (BrickForge) guitar for those endlessly lonely nights out on the plains.

Awesome! I think that you achieved a sci-fi feel with out the starships and such.

Wow... He looks fantastic! His chest decal is great and the head wrap looks awesome too! (Is that a twisty tie for a loaf of bread?)

Close! The cowl is made from two red twisty ties (painted black) from the fruits & veggies section of the grocery store. :)

Very well done! I love the use of the twist-tie!
