Exclusive Roman Reigns Print!
The latest Wrestling Landscape Painting is revealed!
Roman Reigns stands triumphant over Brock Lesnar, while Jimmy and Jey Uso heap rubble onto Brock as Corey Graves stands in shock beside an upturned wrestling ring and an unconscious Paul Heyman, and WWE Official Chad Patton tries desperately to make the carnage stop. It’s an image evocative of St George standing over the slain dragon, but told again for our modern times at WWE SummerSlam 2022.
I painted the crowd and the overall stadium in watercolor, while the deep shadows inside the barricades are done using black ink to create a sense of two separate worlds, a sort of Venn Diagram where the factual and the fictional overlap. There was also a bit of magenta added to the background around Roman’s figure to make him the clear focus of the composition.
I did my best to pay attention to every little detail and surface, like creating a different texture on the LED barricade versus the torn up floor mats or the canvas of the wrestling ring. I’m especially happy with the use of masking fluid on places like the referee’s shirt or the texture on the ring steps to make them feel real.
I really put in the effort to create for you my best work possible, and I thank you again for giving me the opportunity to do so.
Prints are available here. The initial week’s orders will be numbered and signed by me and are only available to newsletter subscribers. These orders will ship out around November 29th, I expect. After the paywall, there’s also a discount code for paid tier subscribers to get $15 off the print. Yeah. That much.
Finally, ‘founding member’ subscribers will get theirs for free, exclusively hand-remarqued by me. Here’s what I did for the last print as far as hand-remarquing goes, to give you an idea of what to expect for this one. Yeah, I’m directly making original art on your print. These take a little longer, so be patient with me!
My intention is to do these and the Undertaker ones together in the next few days and ship them out together. I apologize for the delay on the ‘Taker prints and I sincerely thank you for your patience. It’s been a nutty couple of months.
Like this but with Roman Reigns making a funny face.
The next in the Wrestling Landscape series will be announced in the coming weeks. I’ve got some strong contenders I’m deciding between right now!
Love you so much,
