Dean Ambrose! I have to admit I actually didn’t see this episode of Raw, it was even here in Austin and I didn’t attend either. From what I’ve read the show wasn’t that great except for a couple of matches. I saw an image on Twitter of Dean Ambrose tearing up Seth Rollin’s Money in the Bank contract and that was pretty awesome. I had to draw that for this week’s sketch!
I quickly checked out the clip on WWE.com just so I could make sure to know what was going on and then started the sketch. I went about this sketch a little differently. I’ve been very busy with getting the next Nightmare Pro Wrestling story arc ready and with digital commissions, so I sketched out the line work very quickly. It added a bit of a grungy look to the drawing that I liked. The final image kept that as I also just quickly inked it and through on some colors. I’m really pleased with the way it turned out.
Pick up a Dean Ambrose print over at the NPW SHOP!
Prince Devitt! Here’s a recent commission I did of Prince Devitt! I wanted to draw him in action so I chose to draw him doing the Stomp off the top rope. He had a lot of body paint to choose from but I went for the Anti-Venom one as you still could make out more of his features in the drawing.
Only a few commission slots left! Get one!
Karai TMNT! Here’s a recent commission I did of Karai from the latest rendition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon on Nickelodeon. Had a lot of fun with this one. It took a while to really get a cool original pose but eventually it all came together.
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.
