The Scrap Pack
Commissioned work from a growing series of Mixed Martial Arts related portraits.
(Tribute to the Scrap pack from the Cesar Gracie Academy. Depicted hare are (in order from left to right): Jake Shields, Cesar Gracie, Nick Diaz, Nate Diaz and Gilbert Melendez (bottom). The piece builds upon previous style experiments and is stylistically chosen to incorporate the doodle Cesar Gracie Academy logo with the digitally painted figures of the fighters. Most of the artworks are from-reference paintings designed further around the main portrait figure.
Technically the process involves complete digital workflow, although the piece building method sometimes picks overlay elements from personal doodle decoration sketches specifically for the artwork worked on, drawn on paper and scanned.)
