The Journey To Come - Outlaw Trail by DarKestcreagirl The Journey To Come - Outlaw Trail by DarKestcreagirl


This took around roughly 10-12 hours over the span of three days. I can't believe I pulled it off! I knew I wanted a scene of my characters from the :iconharpg-outlaw-trail: to be up sorta on a hill around sunrise for the meeting with Aaron Walker along with the other outlaws. ;D I had a well with them in the original sketch but I am pooped out from this thing and thought it was fine as I left it without the well. :) Anyway hope you comment if you fave!

On a side note, THIS THING IS HUGE!!!!!!

Maybe that's why it took so much work to finish. LOL

Ok, I'll go collapse now. XD

This picture us pretty much just a bonus pic. My number on the outlaw trail is 113 I believe. I am on the Outlaw side. :D

Here's a story to go with the painting. :D


Taylor woke before dawn and went to saddle up Blaze before she even heard any others stirring. She rode out just as there was a faint grey light ib the east but she had good eyesight in the dim light and she trusted Blaze to be sire of foot. She guided him to the place outside of town where a well was supposed to be. It was where Aaron Walker had said to meet him outside of town.
She found the place easy enough as she had glimpsed it from a distance during other daily rides scouting the area outside of town. She always liked to know her surroundings and routes that would take her out of town if trouble was brewing.
She rode to the top of a hill just as the sun was peaking over the horizon. She guessed that she was an hour early but she figured it was a good idea to see her fellow outlaws arrive. She was patient as was Blaze.
They stood and watched and waited.
It was about ten til seven when riders began filtering into the area bellow. They didn't seem to notice her but she was in a better spot to observe others without them seeing her unless she wanted them to. And she wasn't one to draw attention to herself. It was a handy skill when you needed to stay under the radar when you drifted through towns. It helped to keep her safe and alive.
She watched as a whole bunch of riders settled in a large group of possible close to fifty, maybe more. Some were in getups that made her shake her head in wonder. Taylor may have been new to these parts, but she had grown up in the west. Probably further west than some of these blokes had been. She prefered the wilds and open spaces to the crowded towns where everybody was on tip of each other.
She pulled the brim of her hat more securly over her forehead, when she saw another rider come from the opposite direction from some trees. She guessed it was probably Aaron.
"Come on Blaze. Time to hit the trail."
She gave Blaze a gentle squeeze and the huge stallion beneath her launnvhed forward and down the hill. They bounded down to the noise of trhe other outlaws jabbering, but they quieted when they saw Aaron. She pulled Blaze up on the outskirts of the group and listened to his speech.
She almost snorted aloud when he said he was innocent. She already figured that, otherwise she wouldn't have decided to follow him. She figured that Ellis was no better than a snakes belly anyhow. She didn't trust him at all. He just gave her this feeling like he was a rattler in a mans clothing.
She sat though the rest in complete silence but here mind was loud as she listened to some of the others. She was relieved when they headed out.
Sooner they headed out, the more distance they could put between them and the sheriff's posse which she had heard rumors around town would've headed out that day.
With another squeeze of her legs around Blaze, they leapt into a canter to follow Aaron and the others.
