Mike Tyson

Whats up everybody, posting the finished version of the Mike Tyson sketch i started a few days back. after much thought i decided to keep it as i had it in the sketch; with the black and white finish and a splash of color in the gloves. special shout out to Mike Eppe and Scott for your input. A few people have mentioned wanting to see some of my process so i decided to include some photos of this piece as it progressed from start to finish. hope everyone enjoys. back 2 work.

Great stuff Torren. it feels like it has a lot of life and movement. i also like the b & w with the red gloves.

Scott said...

That's just how i want to see him, right hook on it's way! Fantastic. With his pre-death expression i bet he kissed the receiver on the top of his head too :-)

This piece is absolutely ludicrous! Probably should have had Evander's ear in his mouth, but niece piece. Digging the contrasting grey scale with the red gloves!

If Mike wasn't somewhere gettin blown he probably say the same.
