My bats and my boys get linear.

So here are some drawings of wrestlers and bats, those two great staples of great great art.





I’m sort of trying to refine them toward some kind of sort of design for a painting at this stage.

But I also had to draw some big heads, to get that big head thing out of my system. Here are Randy and Ric. They have ‘chemistry’, as they say in the trade. Or at least I think so.





Learning Ric Flair’s face would be like a ten year project. In the meantime I’m still preoccupied with Randy, cos I haven’t quite perfected whatever it is I’m doing with him yet. Getting this far and quitting would be both stupid and unforgivable!





That one absorbed some spillage. I wasn’t drooling with lust as you may have assumed, I merely toppled my beverage.





As you see here, the cheekbone was generous and as such, enabled some bat emergence. Also you see evidence of other brain damaged scribbles indicating an impatience to get on with some proper painting composed of elements and not exclusively heads.

With the wrestlers, I think I could take more notice of the variation in the bodies as they’re just as distinct and trademarky as the faces. Not just the shapes but the way they move may prove important. Important in post apocalyptic bat confrontations.





Because bats don’t mess about!





The end,

Love from Chloe.

Wow, really interesting stuff here. I like the way you treat and distort forms. It's like, some kind of surreal version of 3 dimensions. Cool!

Holy crap these are amazing!

I love the textures you develop on the Randy heads: that lumpy, swirly grotesqueBeauty quality.

Nice rabbits on the last drawing! The rabbits add a nice contrast to the somewhat scary/bat/nightmarish concepts and images on the rest of the page.

There should be at least two rabbits in all your posts!

You on leave?
Not keeping up with the estro del maestro?
Perhaps you busier in real life than in the virtual one: hope you are developing your art -- hai la mano geniale!

Brava
