Like many other people, I absolutely loved the new True Grit that came out last year. Everything about this movie was perfect… from the casting to the writing to the cinematography. The dialogue was so great and had me chuckling throughout the whole movie.
So I was pretty excited when someone at HurleyCon requested a commission of Rooster Cogburn. As much as I love John Wayne, I think Jeff Bridges totally owned this character. This was fun to draw, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
