Okay THIS is probably the final boxer


To the request of Sam and Ryan (art gods) I did this one as well. Whether it is Mike Tyson or not I don't know. I definitely took inspiration from him. I mostly wanted a messed up boxer with out of whack teeth and broken nose who happened to be a heavyweight and black and out came this.

wooooooooooooooow!!!! this is huge!!!!
so scary!!!
and I like the way you've made him more huge by reducing the ring size and using a centered vanishing point..
another great lighting demonstration too!!!
and the tattoos...

this is great Adam, good job Champion!!!

Awesome again! This one is just great. So this one is new, then?
He's got such a little kid face on him. Great!

I knew there was a reason I picked you to teach me how to paint.

hahahaha the best boxer yet! This reminds me of what it felt like to play the Nintendo game 'Punch Out' as a kid, and face Mike Tyson in the end. Fantastic lighting on this!

This is great. I like it the most of the boxers too.

That face coupled with that body---wow! I think it would be truly scary to face him in the ring. You really wouldn't be able to guess whether he was going to box or bite your ear off.

What medium is this? Oil or digital?

Brilliantly done either way.
