Prize Fighter. by MicahJGunnell Prize Fighter. by MicahJGunnell
This was done referencing a photo taken of a participant on the Ultimate Fighter(not sure the season or the name of the fighter). I also don't know the name of the photographer...Wow, I'm such a jerk! Check out our blog!! [link]

the body is great and all, but what I really like is the white scribble on the right hand ( forgive me, don't know how to refer to it, it's really just a scribble or it's blood? I've seen sometimes they don't draw red blood but leave the bloody part empty, and so... ), I don't know how to explain but, it gives expressive strenght to the picture!

wow that's so awesome!

I love those little detail lines on his legs, reminds me of Da Vinci's pen work ( i just recently saw his original sketches at the art gallery )

keep it up!

I love the lighting on the guy's face, it adds a verry realistic feel to it.
Have you been looking at some of ben templsmith's artwork?

Thanks! Yeah, there was some very interesting lighting going on with this photo...I think there must have been several different light sources set up by the photographer. As for Templesmith, I've never really looked into his work...I know I've seen it but I don't really remember it too well...

cool how the way the mouth and jaw is drawn!

...unrelated, is it just me or does TUF's newest cast have the weirdest/greatest hairstyles?

Thank you! I actually think the mouth looks a little funky now that I'm examining it more closely...But I'm glad you like it :) Sometimes our "mistakes" are actually what define our styles I guess. I watched the first episode of this season and yeah, there are some crazy hairstyles. I guess people have noticed that Dan Hardy's star is rising so they're trying to cash in :)

his ribs look bad ass man. I think the rib cage is the hardest part to draw because there's a lot going on. But when you get it right, it makes your stuff look a few times better.

I can't believe how much energy I get from this...I mean, he's just standing still! Yet it's just POW! Good job man.

Thanks! Yes, I agree with you, the ribcage is one of the more difficult areas of the body to draw. I think the reason for this is that it is rarely defined enough that you can clearly discern where muscles insert and where they overlap...Its complicated :) I have a similar problem with forearms. Anyway, thanks again for the kind words!

Forearms....my only weakness[...that and Chipotle burritos] I agree. It's such a simple mechanism, but i still can't get it right! But do you know who the absolutely-definitive-subject for forearm-definition-study is? Bruce Lee. He'll learn you good.

If you go here: [link] the day after the fight they always post the videos from all the match-ups. Just try not to find out what happened before you watch and its almost as exciting as watching it live :)
