The Champ is here!

 WWE is a family thing at my house. We all watch RAW on Monday nights in the living room while eating dinner, and we almost always have a "party" for the Sunday wrestling pay-per-views. Wrestlemania is our Superbowl. In fact, as of May my parents took me and my sister to see RAW live at the Portland Rose Garden. It could only be a matter of time until I brought this influence into my art, all I needed was a reason and an opportunity.
 Father's Day.

John Cena is my dad's favorite WWE superstar, point blank. He has tons of John Cena merchandise, including T-shirts, a signed photograph, a specialized John Cena Christmas stocking, action figures, and even a life size cardboard cut-out of John Cena himself. So, inspired by my dad's intensive dedication, I decided that I would draw a portrait of the People's Champ for my dad's father's day gift, so he could add another piece to his vast collection.

Quite honestly, it turned out rather well. The image I used to draw him was an older one, so he wasn't wearing his usual orange, or as it is now, red garb. Just black. No fruity pebbles in sight.

This image was drawn with graphite on Strathmore premium recycled paper. I honestly question anything that lists "premium" as one of it's qualities.

Happy Father's Day dad! You are seriously the best! I love you so much!
