no, it's not Balrog

sketch of Iron Mike Tyson by samax (for the Fighters SketchJam). watercolor brush pens.
i've never been all that big into fighting, but you didn't need to be to dig Iron Mike when i was comin' up! he was like a super hero (or villain, depending on how you look at it...) knocking professional fighters unconscious before the popcorn was even ready! every comedian mentioned him... he had rappers writing songs about him... not the greatest boxer ever, but my personal favorite!
holla!

Yeah Tyson was the favorite boxer by default. Folks who were not into basketball liked Michael Jordan just like non-boxing fans knew the latest exploits of Mike Tyson.

Cool piece.
B&W with a splash of red works every time.
