'Taker by Zephyri 'Taker by Zephyri
An old painting of the Undertaker(TM) from the WWE, yeah, I love it... you can't beat good looking men in tight clothing with big muscles pretending to be vicious, beating up on one another... I did this as part of what will be, when it is finished, a large collection of small paintings for my own personal enjoyment (the originals are about 15cm x 21cm, A5 size) of WWE wrestlers. It was an exercise in realistic painting with acrylics, trying out different skin tones and textures. So far I've done UnderTaker(TM), Stone Cold Steve Austin (TM), The Rock(TM) (both of whom were presents for my sister who thinks they're gorgeous), Chris Benoit and I'm half way through HBK. So I'll proabably still be doing this when I'm sixty if I'm to all the wrestlers!

Uh, except that this a) was not done digitally b) was certainly not done in oil, c) was done 4 years prior to when you say you did it (it's tagged 2004) and d) the artist has similar pieces in her gallery with the same style/technique (the style of her pieces of Austin and Benoit are almost identical to this one). You don't. Besides, she's been here for six years. You've been here four months.

Oh, and if your name is Michael, why do you sign your artwork "Sam"? Which I assume is Zephyri's name, as much of her other work is signed with "Sam".

A phenominal piece of the phenom. IMO 'Taker is the greatest wrestler of all time. You have done him justice.

*tacklehuggleattack* Oh I love it! *cough* Sorry, the 'Taker has propelled me into new depths of fandom and I can be rather embarrassing to be around when watching SmackDown. Like this Friday, *hangs head in shame* Yeah major fan girl issues....^^;

But I do really love this picture!

Ahahah yay for fellow fangirls! I'm actually more of a Kane/Triple H fan, and I've not watched in a while, but yeah, Taker had his fangirl moments from me too.

Nice, I think that you should get back into watching it. Taker got banned by Edge and his wife Vikkie, but he's coming back in a Hell in a Cell match agaist Edge in the Summer Slam.

I have fangirl moments with Kane and Triple H, but no where near as violent(?); I don't think that is the proper word for it but whatever.

Oooooooh, I love it!!!! Keep up the great work....I know how much work and dedication it takes to be on top of your game in drawing. I watch my brother and if for some reason he stops for awhile......he has to work, work, work until it comes back! :+fav:

Thank you! And not lucky, and not talented, simply hard working and dedicated. No magic tricks other than two or three hours drawing a day at least.
