Another western piece. The poker game that descends into a brawl is a classic staple of any saloon worth its whiskey. I had a bit of difficulty with what to put on the guy throwing the punch, because I wanted to show off his arms but I didn't want him barechested. So he ended up wearing just a vest, which (along with the leather arm bands) probably makes him look a bit like Crocodile Dundee with a six-shooter on his leg.
I feel kinda bad for the dealer, but he was probably in on the cheat.
I wanted it to look like the chair under the guy taking the punch had smashed beneath him from the violence of the blow, but I think it probably reads poorly. I should have had it bursting into the foreground more, but there wasn't much room at the bottom of the illustration. Oh, well, something to learn.
