Will Ospreay is someone that for some reason I do not have a handle on drawing right. I’ve drawn him because I wanted to, I’ve drawn him because I had to for What Culture…well I guess that’s it. But I’ve drawn him a few times but it never looked right. So I’ll keep trying till I get it!
Here’s a new stupid sexy Tanahashi for you! He’s got to go down as one of the greatest of all time, right? Just so so good.
I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but I haven’t seen a ton of Sho and Yoh, but I like what I’ve seen! I have AXS tv now, so I’ll get to see more NJPW…I hope they are on there sometime soon!
I’ve been reading the Observer rewinds and just seeing how badly Onita wanted to bring an exploding barbed wire match to America made me laugh so I had to draw him. Plus I was reading about him on Wikipedia and came across this crazy gem:
“Onita has claimed to have broken Wilt Chamberlain’s record of sleeping with 20,000 women. Coincidentally, his exit from politics was forced by a sex scandal in which he was alleged to have used government accommodations to host a threesome with a pornographic film actress and a female employee of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation. After retirement from politics, he lent his name and image to a Nintendo DS game, Atsushi Onita’s Political Quiz.”
That starts one way and ends so crazy different I almost got whiplash.
I blatantly stole this background from Mike Mignola.
I guess I was in a New Japan kinda mood for a little while here? It happens! Anyway, if you’re looking at this and you know who it is, I really don’t need to explain it, but is there anyone who has had a better long running character story than Tetsuya Naito? It’s been so good. From the crowd liking him to rejecting him to coming back around on him, it’s almost like there’s another company that could learn from something like that…
I know I just drew Minoru Suzuki a few months ago, but I was not happy with that one so I knew I could do better.
