great work as always.

(the talent-less will be here shortly to say you traced and other forms of penis envy quotes.)

Very nice...but his neck's not thick enough. J/K ;)

THAT SUCKS!!!1 IT LOOKS LIKE MARK HUGHES NOT MATT!!1!

great job

everything is great but(constructive criticism) the eyes aren't quite right...I put my finger over them and it was hughes, took my finger off and it wasn't quite hughes

Bradu....Phenomenal ....always impresses me!

Another good one and pastels aren't easy :-) I'll add to the comment about the eyes - also the body looks too small, the arms for example. But overall, a nice composition! Keep it up!

Great drawing.

Awesome work!~

I....am...in.....awe.

Simply tremendous work, Bradu.

tttremendous!

Sweet work brother.  That is my favorite submission of all time too... I love the stand-up RNC. 

Thanks for sharing!

 

"do you have a picture of matt and mark pounding each other down on the farm? "

LOL. That is Goldberg's best quote. You forgot the part about being "young boys".

Looks good man.

How's training been going?

what's training?

thanks for all the constructive criticism guys. Final draft is now posted, I fixed his right eye which I think was the main thing keeping it from looking like Matt.

Devil's Advocate time:

A person who isn't hip to submission grappling, etc., is going to have a very hard time understanding that the picture does not depict some sort of bizarre rape attempt.

looks great...

i like how you can see the wince on triggs face if you can closely from being choked.

great detail

Very cool, is that charcoal? The average person wouldn't get it, but if
you see some of the crap people make in any art department, you'd
freak out.

Here's a good art school story for you. I was sick and tired of girls
making penis sculptures in class. Their claim was that it symbolized
the man and being oppressed. Bullshit.

In my defense, I sculpted a giant vagina my last semester before I
graduated, which was displayed in the hallway glass case for all to see.
It symbolized a big vagina and I totally achieved that concept!

Take that fembots!

I also gained two followers who become enlightened by my idea, so
they promised me that they would make replicant vagina sculptures
the following year. It brought a tear to my eye.

"A person who isn't hip to submission grappling, etc., is going to have a very hard time understanding that the picture does not depict some sort of bizarre rape attempt."

People say stuff like this all the time. I disagree, I think people can figure out that it's a combat sport. They may not be totally down with what MMA is, but they'll still understand. And even if they don't, I'm really not concerned about it.
