The Wyatt Family  by Jon David Guerra
The Wyatt Fam­ily! It’s week 4 of Mon­day Night Draw Hal­loween sketches and I wanted to draw my favorite from the group of other-worldly wrestling char­ac­ters. They’re mod­ern and an actual threat…or at least they were for a while until they started los­ing toward the end of their recent run against top tal­ent. I like their creepi­ness and their pres­ence. I espe­cially like Luke Harper and really like what he does in the ring. Not that I don’t like Bray Wyatt. I do. I just hap­pen to like Harper a lit­tle more.  Any­way, a creepy trio with a lot of tal­ent, with a great leader, great pres­ence, and a great look. They seem to be re-debuting soon and I really hope they start becom­ing a threat again and pick up some sig­nif­i­cant victories.

Pushed the blacks and shad­ows a lit­tle more in this one. I wanted them to be cov­ered in dark­ness with only Bray’s lantern as the light source. It was nice to exper­i­ment with a dif­fer­ent way of inking.

Happy Hal­loween!

Papa Shango

Papa Shango by Jon David Guerra
Papa Shango! Prob­a­bly my ear­li­est mem­ory of any sort of spooky kind of wrestler would have to be Papa Shango with his creepy music and smok­ing skull, and chant­ing as he made his way down to the ring. My other mem­ory is of Shango putting a curse on the Ulti­mate War­rior and War­rior puk­ing up what looked like creamed corn. But enough of that, Papa Shango is def­i­nitely one of my favorite spooky super­nat­ural wrestling gimmicks!

I tried to make him look a lit­tle more creepy than the other two sketches I did at the begin­ning of the month. I added more blacks while ink­ing and made the remain­ing white in the back­ground com­ing from his skull’s smoke. I made sure to place the smoke in the back­ground where it would empha­size the char­ac­ter and what I wanted peo­ple to focus on.

Cheers!

Happy Hal­loween!

Boogeyman and Mankind

Boogey­man and Mankind! It’s Octo­ber! This is my favorite month and Hal­loween is my favorite hol­i­day! So I’m going to be doing some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for Mon­day Night Draw sketches. Every week I’ll post up a sketch of one of my favorite horror/spooky WWE wrestlers! I’m only print­ing a lim­ited run of 10 art prints per sketch. So pick one up while you can!

I’m kick­ing off this week with dou­ble sketches of the Boogey­man and Mankind. Boogey­man because I wanted to draw a char­ac­ter that was very obvi­ously sup­posed to be scary, plus I thought it would be fun to draw the worms in his mouth. Mankind because I had always wanted to draw some ver­sion of Mick Foley. Early Mankind was my intro­duc­tion to Mick so there’s a bit of a nos­tal­gic rea­son to draw­ing him and Mankind is the creepier of Foley’s wrestling personas.

Try­ing to keep all of these sketches closer to my Night­mare Pro Wrestling car­toon­ing style. Had a lot of fun with these espe­cially Mankind. Really look­ing for­ward to fin­ish­ing up the rest of the sketches for October!

Happy Hal­loween!

The Miz Spray Tan

The Miz spray tan!
The Miz spray tan! I was not behind Miz’s new gim­mick at first. Frankly, I haven’t been a fan of the Miz in a long time. All that changed when he brought out Damien Sandow as his body dou­ble. I’m really enjoy­ing how cre­ative they are being giv­ing his char­ac­ter fun celebrity char­ac­ter­is­tics. I’m hop­ing the gim­mick lasts and that it goes far but I guess we’ll have to see. This week’s Mon­day Night Draw is inspired by the pho­tos Dolph Zig­gler showed on RAW. I thought it was funny that every pic Zig­gler showed and made fun of (one of Miz in a hair dying cap, one of Miz, shav­ing his chest, and the one of him get­ting spray tanned by Sandow) are all things every wrestling espe­cially Dolph Zig­gler prob­a­bly does.

I took a lit­tle bit of lib­erty with Miz’s face to make him look more like the Miz. Also felt adding the shades would look a lot more fun. I also didn’t want to pix­e­late his rear and thought it would be even fun­nier to have a big cen­sored sign instead. Been crazy busy these last few days. Sorry this one is a lit­tle late.

Cheers!
