Zangief

I don’t know where this came from, but I’m relatively sure I can draw Zangief in my sleep haha. It might be in bad shape nowadays, but Street Fighter in in my blood till the day I die.

Tried something different with the coloring, did it work? I dunno.

Haha, even when I don’t draw wrestlers, I draw a wrestler. I’m sick!

Beth Phoenix

I’ve been meaning to redraw Beth Phoenix for a long time, since the last time I drew her was in 2010. So just to compare them, here’s both. Haha how did the same person draw both of these? Admittedly I miss that more cartoony style sometimes!

Satoshi Kojima

Do you know how tempted I was to make the background of this drawing just drawings of bread?

Looking at all the titles he’s held, it makes me wonder if we’ll ever see anyone have world titles in NJPW and AJPW at the same time again.

Speaking of, why is it you don’t hear much about AJPW nowadays? The only Japanese wrestling I know is the occasional New Japan stuff. Are they really just that much better?

Tyler Bate

How great was that Bate/Dunne match at Takeover? I knew it would be good, I didn’t know it would be one of the best matches of the year. The crazy thing is Tyler is so young, so you can only imagine how good he’s going to get over the years. He’s got it.

I’m not terribly happy with the likeness, but I think it’s okay enough to post it!

Aleister Black

Standard

So for a long long time I’ve wanted to draw Tommy End, but I never did because I didn’t want to draw all his tattoos. So I never did. But then Aleister Black debuted, and I knew I couldn’t put it off any longer haha. Luckily there’s lots of good, high quality pictures of them online!

I think the WWE has something potentially big on their hands. Aleister is one of the few wrestlers they have that just has an inherent cool factor, and I hope they realize that and keep him strong.
