Samoa Joe

Alright, i admit i like professional wrestling. some friends try and give me a hard time about it, but i admit i still check it out from time to time. I got into it during the huge craze that took the world over in the mid 90's and its just stuck with me. I loved seeing the undertaker sacrifice people, stone cold beat up on vince, the NWO, DX, Goldberg, and watching the rock be the rock.Im not as big on it as i was back in the day, but i still find joy in watching a grown man get hit with a steel chair or get powerbombed through a table. Anyway ive been watching a bit of TNA wrestling lately and decided to do a painting of possibly my favorite wrestler currently, Samoa Joe. i know the guy doesnt look the typical roid rage wrestler build, but trust me, son is nice in the ring. speaking of pro wrestling, be sure to check my man Lash LeRoux. Not only is he a professional wrestler, but he is a very talented artist as well. anyway, back to work, PEACE.

awesome work dude. I know you took Seiler's class and you seem to be WAAAAYYYY more skillful now. I can't afford it right now but I was wondering if there are any tips or help you could hit me up with? Like maybe your technique or something? Like I said I can see your work has improved dramatically and I really like your style lately. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
I'll check back here or you can email me at dasingley@valdosta.edu

I am really digging all the attention you pay to fabric folds, and clothes in all your pieces. Great work!
