This is a digital painting ( NOT a photograph manipulated) done by hand, meaning, it isn’t a vector, those it may look like one, this was created like a vector drawing only I didn’t use the path tool too much, just here and there, I mostly used the lasso tool, much harder. Doing the painting this way, gives it a more ‘painterly’ look, rather than vectored look. I LOVE the bright colors and the sparklely cequenses were a PAIN in the BUTT to do! But I did it :)
This is nature Boy Rick Flair. Back in 1976 or so. When he was 26, he is now 60. For those who don’t know him , he is 16 time world champ of the pro wrestling world. back in the day wrestling was more real. It wasn’t the fights that were real, but the blood, the sweat, and hard work. At times the wrestlers just ‘went with it’ what ever ‘stick’ they came up with , they played off of each other, and developed some of the most funny sticks in the biz in theses days. I was a small child in the 70s back when Ric Flair still looked like this. He was one of my favorite wrestlers. My sister and I use to draw cartoons of our favorite wrestlers when we were kids. We really enjoyed them back then. LOL I have good childhood memories from Flair in those days, so I painted this portrait of him in his honor and because I just LOVED his robes!!
Most fan were and still are quite taken by him, his style and flashy flair made him one the greatest performers to ever enter, The Squared Circle.
