Goldust and Stardust! Another interesting Raw this week. A lot of things happened to build up the Money in the Bank special event as well as the growing feud between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. We got another cool promo from the Wyatt Family (I love that Harper is becoming a part of their promos), and I started to get a little worried. Not of what would happen during the matches or who would qualify for the last spot in the Money in The Bank but what was I going to draw for this week’s Monday Night Draw sketch?!?? I was already on the verge of doing another Wyatt Family sketch with an idea of one developing with Reigns, or Ambrose and Rollins but I’ve done a lot of Wyatt/Shield sketches and wanted to do something different. Then it happened!
Goldust came out to the ring to face Rybaxel with his “new” tag team partner, STARDUST! Cody Rhodes is now all painted up like his brother with his own variation of the Goldust character, Stardust. I’m not sure if I’m a 100% on board yet, I need to see more, but his look and actions in the ring had me interested enough for me to want to sketch him and Goldust in this week’s Monday Night Draw.
I wanted an interesting composition with this sketch and focused on making them a little more realistic while still keeping their design fun and still threw in a little of my cartoony style when it came down to proportions and likeness. I added in some texture to the background which really adds to the overall appeal of the images, creating a subtle focus on the characters while also giving more interest to the background. Really happy with this week’s Monday Night Draw.
Pick up a print of this week’s Monday Night Draw!
@chrisHolland201 <----That's his twitter.
I'm looking forward to see what he does with the new gimmick aswell!
It has a lot of potential for something great. I've always been a fan of the weird/quirky gimmicks.
(we call them "Team Yellow Brick Rhodes" lol)
As for the drawing, you did very well with depicting the two. Like you said, part realistic yet part cartoonish. That lip of Cody is also a nice touch, since it makes him look really bizarre. The background is also a nice addition to the drawing.
I agree! Cody was getting a little lost I feel and I personally haven't been behind him for a while. I can't wait to see what he does with the Stardust character moving forward.
Don't get me wrong when I say I'm not a 100% on board I mean I'm more like 90%.
I can't wait to see what they'll be up to now that the storyline has gone in this direction.
Cody, in terms of ability is fantastic (I mean c'mon, he did the Muscle Buster), so I'm all for one for this tag-team.
It's quirky, but It should be entertaining.
Also really dig this piece!
It fully represents!
