FEDOR by Urbanbarbarian



First of all... Thank you Dave for this week's theme! MMA and Comic Books? Is there anything else worth living for? [ the second illustration was done for Fighter's Only magazine featuring Dana White and Fedor ]

It's like I already feel the pain from his punch.

Cool! So what is this, some kind of wrestling thing or something?

Oscar Padilla said...

Nathan, it's mixed martial arts. It's like wrestling (but real) mixed with boxing and some kung fu movies.

Dave, too bad this never really happened, Dana incorporating Fedor into his organization I mean.

Nathan Fairbairn said...

Yeah, I know, Oscar. Just having a bit of fun messing with Dan is all. ;)

Oscar Padilla said...

Gah! I had a feeling...

Dan, I'm guessing MMA isn't a popular subject with the rest of the twartists?

Nathan Fairbairn said...

I must confess I've never watched an MMA event in my life. I have nothing against it -- I just have NO knowledge of it (aside from what it basically is). As such, I really wouldn't even know where to start to pick a guy to draw! I'd just be picking some loser at random just because he's got a funny face. Then I'd probably be mocked and pushed down by the Reverend and the Barbarian if I ever meet them in person for my ignorance.

No, no ... best not to post anything at all. There's just too much at risk!

Urban Barbarian said...

LOL! You almost got me! Got me enraged that is! ;)

Yeah, I think the other Twartists are neck deep in deadlines and MMA hasn't crossed over into their mainstream consciousness. It's funny because, for me - MMA is lot like comic books when it comes to characters. You have fighters with very distinct personalities and skill sets. It makes for some entertaining action and even drama at times.

I love the colors on the Last Emperor piece, Dan. Great highlight off of the right side of the figure.

Your work is spectacular. MMA fans around the world are going to go nuts over your illustration of Fedor.
