EL Terrifiko

Decided to go Mexican but mostly in tribute to my Burrito guys. Although most, if not all, of my MEXICAN WRESTLING reference is in the spirit of Nacho Libre, cool movie but mostly because of Jack Black-poor and lame-I know. Well, there’s also the Intel I get from the guys who work at my favourite burrito place. They’re hardcore Mexican wrestling fanzines and sometimes will play the circuit fights on TV while I’m eating my Pollo Loco.

I do know that good Drama and parlor tricks are key to Mexican wrestlers and really cool outfits. 
EL TERRIFIKO is all upper body and looks like he can handle himself in the ring. I failed to mention that healthy dose of narcissistic arrogance really goes a long way too. Went digital on this one but relied on the original sketchbook sketch to keep the proportions accurate, than went straight to ink-digital ink that is. Thanks Guys. Until next time…

Some more sketches of Mexican wrestlers…

Brave Boy...

The Daily Sketch has taken a hit. Amen to that. I almost feel like changing the category to the Whenever Sketch or the Sometimes Sketch.  I won't do anything drastic yet.  It would be nice to blog daily but I do have a day job and the family at the end of the day.  Work is busy and I get to blogging when I can.  It's always exciting to get a post out there and even more exciting to be able to work on more stuff to post.  

Although I like the pencil version of this one, I make every attempt to use Sketchbook Pro to ink and colour.  It's my favourite digital drawing tool right now. I enjoy the process and try to use different tools to experiment with.  It can be frustrating at times when it's not working or I can't seem to get it to do what I want with it, but I'm told we learn through frustration-haha
