Full Version: My new Mike Tyson acrylic piece!
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing
Coyote Duran
Busy, busy! Despite burning the midnight oil for two great boxing sites, I still managed to achieve my goal of painting former Undisputed Heavyweight Champion "Iron Mike" Tyson before the end of the year (finished on November 29th). It's acrylic on an 11" X 14" canvas panel. Comments and critiques are always appreciated. Thanks, gang! smile.gif

I am no expert at art, but looks pretty awesome. I wish I could do that, I would have a bunch of cool pictures of fighters.

What's the blue mark by his chin and nose? And the x mark? Your sig?

Thank you, Lights! The blue areas are more of an accent sort of thing. Kind of a haphazard, artsy-fartsy deal. smile.gif

The "X-Mark" is indeed my signature. It's harder to do in paint but it's a generic paw print with a pencil and paintbrush crossed behind it. Sort of a "skull-and-crossbones" kind of thing!

Anyone who knows Mike, knows that your pic is a spitting image of him. I still think you should try and get in touch with to show him your work. By the way, which one are you in the pic?

Thanks so much, Boxy! I imagine that Mike isn't an easy fella to reach but it's worth trying. I'll hafta reach out with my Coyote operatives and see what I can do... LOL!

As for the pic, I'm the moron standing between Joe Tessitore and Shannon Briggs. biggrin.gif

Thanks, Biggie! As we speak, I'm uploading my Ricky Hatton painting to Image Kind. I'd really like to get my own site going in order to not have a middleman but this is a good start to help get that off the ground. smile.gif
