Guns of Shadow Valley poster art

This is the original art for a reward level on the Guns of Shadow Valley Kickstarter campaign, called the Movie Poster Art Print. The print is available at the $50 dollar level, along with the book. It's also available as an add-on for an other pledge level. The original painting is also available for a pledge of $1400.

The idea here was to create a movie poster reminiscent of painted movie poster art from the past, before the days of bad Photoshop. I was influenced by the work of Drew Struzan, who painted the movie posters for the Indiana Jones movies, Star Wars, and just about everything else in the '80s. I also wanted to harken back to the movie posters of when Westerns were king of the box office in the '40s and '50s, which is one of the reasons for the horizontal format.
