Yet again I’m a full week behind on Inktober. I’ll need to start making these things less elaborate. Anyways, for day 7, I chose Trish Stratus. The WWE women’s division was already on the rise, but she really put it on the map. She was a great champion, she had a really interesting heel turn, and was and still is beloved by a ton of the people who were around. That “divas” era is definitely a stand out. She had some great competitors to help give her some pretty great matches. She was sexy, yet still had the athletic ability to actually look like a top competitor.
I missed an entire week of Inktober, but I'm still in it. For my 5th entry, I decided to do the Rhodes family. It was originally supposed to be a tribute to the terrific match they had at Battleground last week, but I was too busy. I've always loved Cody Rhodes. He pulls the heel angle very well, and he could also do great baby face. His in-ring skills are so cool to watch. Dusty is still one of the best wrestlers with a mic in his hand. He's amazing at winning you to his side. Goldust was such a bizarre, but awesome guy to watch back in the Attitude era. His whole persona was so off-putting, but then he gets in that ring and just turns it up. Go Rhodes Dynasty.

For Inktober day 4, I just had to do Randy Savage. He was the only dude who had the personality and skill to be as large as the Hulkster. Their tag team and subsequent rivalry was so awesome to watch. I was always more of a Macho Man guy. Ohhhhh YEEEEAAA!
For Inktober Day 3, I had to draw Bam Bam Bigalow. He’s one of my all time favorites. This dude was over 300 pounds and still moving around the ring as if he was Shawn Michaels. His finisher was a Moonsault from the top rope! I don’t think there’s been anyone as athletic as him at that size since.

For #Inktober this month, I'm gonna focus on some of my favorite pro wrestlers. Rick Flair was before my time, but I'd always checkout old matches of his when I could. His skills on the mic were undeniable. And I loved the brash, arrogant, flashy young gun coming in and just taking over. Plus, he's also a local boy.

Hey guys. I think the Heroescon debut of 'Makin' Baby' was a success! The word is out and I got really positive feedback. I'll be setting up a system to take online orders soon so that all of you can get a copy. Thanks for all of the encouraging words throughout this process. It made the work much more fulfilling.

Alright Guys. Heroescon starts tomorrow, and I've got some spots open for commissions left. I'll be doing things a little differently this year. I will do black & white head/bust shots for $20. These are fully inked with a little bit of toning on 9x12 bristol. I may even throw in a spot color if it works for the piece. Here are a few examples of my head/bust sketches done at FCBD
A full commission will start at $50. These are also done on 9x12 bristol. They will be fully inked and toned. This includes very elaborate bust drawings and full body figure with light background elements. Here are a few examples:
I will also have 3 spots available for large commission pieces at the show. These start at $100 and are fully inked and toned on 14x17 bristol. They can have full figures, multiple figures, and some light backgrounds. Again, these spots are very limited, so you'll need to let me know earlyYou can find me on the con floor at tables AA-46-47 to request a sketch, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a solid spot in the line. Can't wait for the show!
