Nick Diaz by Rev. Dave Johnson

Well, this week was my pick and it just so happened that I'm the first one to post something. Hell, I half picked the subject to get Panosian all excited and figured he'd be the first one outta the gate.
So the MMA fighter I picked is Nick Diaz. He got a face only a pulp artist could love. I mean seriously, even when Nick is happy he still looks like he could kill you at any moment. And he's one of the no. 1 fighters out there today. So it seemed only natural to make him a pulp novel character. I drew the line art while in Savannah using my iPhone to pull reference, and colored it tonight. It was pure fun, and because of work and upcoming travel it might be a while before I can do another Twart I wanted to make it a good one.
Enjoy the manliness.

Very original and well done. Would love see a series of these. In end the various training camps can be gangs.

Comic Twart is doing Nick Diaz!!!

Yes, I'm a fan. Good one Rev.
I can't wait to see how the rest of the team tackle Mr. 209 (or whatever his zip code is)

Goddamit, I've been meaning to sketch Nick Diaz for the past couple of weeks and now I shouldn't even bother. Can't top this.

He has a great mug. Classic fighter look like Jack Dempsey.
