    Hi there matey

    I have had a read at your problem and have found this photo site that should give you just what you need.

    http://www.old-picture.com/

    These are actual pictures taken in the old west, the other thing you could do is go the movies route and look up movies of John Wayne, James stuart, Gary Cooper etc.

    Hope this helps mate

    Unhappy

    Sorry OzzO I have failed you .

    I will go back to my crystal ball and google again in the vain hope that I turn up something useful for you.

    In the meantime have you looked at some of the costume sites that are dotted around the net they can be good for this kind of thing too.

    I WILL find you what you need my mate never fear!! but I may need a coffee first so bear with me

    talk soon

    Sorry but I cant stand the thought of letting another artist down, it just goes against the grain, so I have had a trawl through just about every corner of my tired little mind and I have come up with the following.

    http://www.fotosearch.com/comstock/wild-west/CSK246/ This is a pay site but as you are using it for reference having fotosearch across it doesn’t really matter I suppose.

    http://www.picturehistory.com/decade/century/1800 This is another picture site and is loaded with stuff but you have to log in and register to get the images at a decent quality, and maybe pay too I’m not sure.

    http://www.framecaplib.com/index.htm Ok this one is a collection of screen grabs from a TV series in black and white, Go for the wild wild west or alias smith and jones for western stuff. There are some sci fi bits too if you’re interested.

    http://www.americanwest.com/ Wow there are too many links here to go through! There has to be something in here that you want mate!
    Ok now let’s find the guns!

    http://www.blank-guns-depot.com/ this is a place to start there are replica gun pics everywhere.

    http://www.battleorders.co.uk/acatal...EST_RIFLE.html these are the western style rifles and such, but if you look in the selection bit there are weapons from all over the place, movies etc

    I think that the best for visual reference is the http://www.framecaplib.com/index.htm one but it is ripping off someones copyright somewhere, and we all rightfully disagree with that kind of behaviour dont we!? The TV series stuff has some good poses in and has cowboy types doing all sorts of cowboy stuff so enjoy before someone kills the site off for a breach of whatever.

    check out my website. I have a large database of free reference photos for artists on it. Go to photo references on my main menu, enter the references area, click on the "Western" catagory.......there you will find four pages of western photos. If you don't find what you need there......email me and I will check through my external hard drives. I have some rodeo parade photos where the riders are wearing old west clothing. Here's the link to my site. http://www.penciltrails.com/index.html

    Other than that have you checked museums?

    Art gives me a life of extreme challenge, frustration, accomplishment and contentment. Nothing less will do!
