Feathers and tar

In the Lucky Luke stories, whenever a gambler is caught cheating, he gets a choice: the rope or being covered in feathers and tar and escorted to the border of the town on a piece of rail, never to return. Needless to say, most stick with the second option. This little vignette by Editions Atlas shows one of these unfortunate hustlers. I left out the sheriff's star on the feathered man (although this was taken from an actual story), as to make it a more generic crook (besides,it was badly sculpted and only vaguely resembled a star). The vignette also comes with a bucket of tar (goudron) and a sack of feathers (plumes), which were also repainted...

Before being stripped and repainted, the figures looked like this:
