    I'm torn between three of them. I have to think about this one....

    I have to go with aurora because of the way he is looking away.

    I finally went with alinda's. There's just something about it I like. I think it's the kindly look on his face.

    They are all very cool, but I liked aurora's the most. It's dark and it has great detail. Nice Work!!!

    This was very hard to vote on. They are all great. I was torn between Heather19, Auroras and Hammes but finally went with Heather19.

    How long do we have to consider? This is tough!
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    It was tough. I ended up voting for Aurora's because he is looking away....and is at a distance. We don't see his face, and he remains a mystery to us. He exists only as a memory.

    Cry pardon, sai. I looked at work and posted at home. I wasn't logged in at work. That information does not show if you are not logged in.

    This was a tough one. There were a couple I was debating between, but finally decided to go with Aurora.

    You know I actually went back and checked as both logged in and not to see if I was blind (oh ha ha, to see if... nevermind).

    I have voted alinda's: it may not be the most perfect, but it is Pat Delgado, as I imagine him, and not someone abstract horseman. I alerady expanded in that other thread how much I like the presence of the horses in that picture where there are none, or those white specks that somehow make me remember that he died.

    I loved Aurora's and Alinda's and Heather's horse was beautiful, but I ended up voting for Chris, his(hers? cry pardon I know not what gender you be) depicted Pat as I imagined him; an obvious horseman who looks his work and has a kind yet disciplined look about him.

    I'm a dude. Thanks for the vote.
    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.

    I voted for Hammer. His Pat has the right look about him, to me, of a man who spends his days outdoors and working hard.

    Thanks all, right now I'm not only humbled but even a little sad that Heather is not getting more votes, her work is incredible!

    It was tough. I ended up voting for Aurora's because he is looking away....and is at a distance. We don't see his face, and he remains a mystery to us. He exists only as a memory.
    Funny you mention that as that is EXACTLY what I was thinking of as I sketch it out. We have no real descriptions of him, we only know we was a good and honest horseman that loved the open range and he is only mentioned, for the most part, as shadow memories from Susan. Therefore I thought his power and grace was in his very lack of description.

    No worries Aurora. I'm surprised I even got those 2 votes. I'm really bad at drawing people, and my Pat does looks kinda bad.

    I have to agree about the feel of your sketch, I think that's why I was drawn to it as well, there's a mystery about it. I really like it. And if you ever do anything more with it, I'd love to see it.
