Great work. Looks more real than Mickey Rourke's fight. Which was also a great work.I like the color pencil as the tone. I get ideas every time I see your work.Fun to study all the rough lay in for the poses.
Of course the main thing that should blow people's minds is that your figures are invention. Done without reference.
I like the restraint, no over the top stuff. A thousand years ago I had a narrative art homework assignment which was to draw a page of narrative (duh) where it had to be two people in silhouette and the figures had to overlap in each panel. I got a sports magazine for reference and did a boxing match.
I like the old-timey John L. Sullivan stance of the boxer facing us. The men in Muybridge who are boxing stand like that.
That's right. The Muybridge boxers. Big leaning body jabs etc. Here's a lat hammer blowIf I'm not mistaken, it's what Rourke finished his opponent with.
Speaking of invention and how not everyone can do it. I'm going to find that thing of the ghost hot rodder, (that both of us in a spasm of creativity decided to board) and re purpose it. Cut it up, put balloons on it, never refer to the original story and write something brand new. Then put it on my bitzobiz blog.Now I have to find it.
Never did find the actual files. Had to get them from "the cloud." The TAG blog. And that took forever finding them. Man we post a lot of stuff.
Marty. I just realized the writing is all you. For some reason I mis remembered the story origins. You basically wrote and pitched it. The guy you aimed it at didn't write it.But the exercise here is NOT to use your story. Just something that lets me dabble and use found art in photoshop.
Now I'm back to clear thinking. I've got it formatted. See above. It's farther along than the ventriloquist story. Let's do that first. You write it after I photoshop -draw the art.
