Dean Ambrose vs Cesaro -  Monday Night Draw
Dean Ambrose vs Cesaro! A fun edi­tion of Raw this week fol­low­ing the Bat­tle­ground pay-per-view. A lot of excit­ing things hap­pened to move story lines for­ward but I was excited to see Ambrose go up against Cesaro (who is no longer with Hey­man) and I couldn’t help but be inter­ested in who would win the match and how would it be done. Looks like WWE is estab­lish­ing Ambrose as the crazy anti-hero even fur­ther by hav­ing him hit Cesaro with the chair to end the match. I really like these two guys and I’m eager to see where they go.

I wanted to do a cool action bat­tle pose between the two in this week’s sketch. I also wanted it to look a lit­tle more real­is­tic while still keep­ing them both in my style. I found myself really get­ting into draw­ing this sketch and even added some extra details. I’ve said it so many times but I’ll say it again, Dean Ambrose is the most fun to draw because of his crazy, over the top expressions.

Lana vs Zeb Colter by Jon David Guerra
Lana vs Zeb Colter! I’m slow­ing becom­ing more of a fan of Rusev but it might be because he reminds me of my younger brother. I’m not par­tic­u­larly excited about his match against Swag­ger but it still looks like it could be a good match. I still can’t get behind Zeb and Swag­ger in this feud like the crowd seems to be. Like the WNS Pod­cast guys pointed out, Zeb and Swag­ger is pretty much the Amer­i­can ver­sion of Rusev and Lana….minus eye candy Lana. Don’t get me wrong I still like Zeb despite all the anti mexican/hispanic stuff he says (me being His­panic) I think he’s enter­tain­ing and hilarious.

My approach to this week’s Mon­day Night Draw was to draw the thing I thought would be the most unlikely thing for me to draw. Just to keep things fresh and give myself a chal­lenge. I ended up going with the Lana, Rusev, Swag­ger, and Zeb con­fronta­tion. Hope you enjoy!

Dragulas - Nightmare Pro Wrestling by Jon David Guerra
The Drag­u­las! I’m cre­at­ing some new mon­sters for the next Night­mare Pro Wrestling story arc and here are three of my favorites. A trio of Vam­pires: Moe, Moxie, and Slick! They’re mov­ing up to the main ros­ter so be on the look­out for them to play a big part in the next NPW comics. I’m really proud of the design of the char­ac­ters and how well their sil­hou­ettes turned out. I’m really look­ing for­ward to draw­ing them more as they cre­ate mis­chief within Night­mare Pro Wrestling. Check back often as I plan to post up some more char­ac­ter designs!

AJ Lee returns - Jon David Guerra
AJ Lee Returns! A lot of wrestlers returned on this week’s Mon­day Night Raw. Seems like after the news that Daniel Bryan might be out longer than expected they blew the WWE mag­i­cal wrestler conch shell and quickly sum­moned back AJ Lee, Jeri­cho, and The Miz (a maybe on The Miz?).  I picked AJ as the sketch for this week as I’ve been want­ing to draw her for a while. Plus I don’t usu­ally draw women and wanted to get some good practice/studying. I was a lit­tle wor­ried at first that I wouldn’t be able to catch her like­ness but she turned out way bet­ter than expected. The only prob­lem I ran into was keep­ing her look­ing fem­i­nine while still look­ing fit. I reme­died that by not putting so many lines on her mus­cles, espe­cially on her abs. AJ has crazy abs but I had to down play them a bit for the sketch. Hope you all enjoy the sketch.

Goldust and Stardust

Goldust and Stardust by Jon David Guerra
Goldust and Star­dust! Another inter­est­ing Raw this week. A lot of things hap­pened to build up the Money in the Bank spe­cial event as well as the grow­ing feud between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. We got another cool promo from the Wyatt Fam­ily (I love that Harper is becom­ing a part of their pro­mos), and I started to get a lit­tle wor­ried. Not of what would hap­pen dur­ing the matches or who would qual­ify for the last spot in the Money in The Bank but what was I going to draw for this week’s Mon­day Night Draw sketch?!?? I was already on the verge of doing another Wyatt Fam­ily sketch with an idea of one devel­op­ing with Reigns, or Ambrose and Rollins but I’ve done a lot of Wyatt/Shield sketches and wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent. Then it happened!

Goldust came out to the ring to face Rybaxel with his “new” tag team part­ner, STARDUST! Cody Rhodes is now all painted up like his brother with his own vari­a­tion of the Goldust char­ac­ter, Star­dust. I’m not sure if I’m a 100% on board yet, I need to see more, but his look and actions in the ring had me inter­ested enough for me to want to sketch him and Goldust in this week’s Mon­day Night Draw.

I wanted an inter­est­ing com­po­si­tion with this sketch and focused on mak­ing them a lit­tle more real­is­tic while still keep­ing their design fun and still threw in a lit­tle of my car­toony style when it came down to pro­por­tions and like­ness. I added in some tex­ture to the back­ground which really adds to the over­all appeal of the images, cre­at­ing a sub­tle focus on the char­ac­ters while also giv­ing more inter­est to the back­ground. Really happy with this week’s Mon­day Night Draw.
