Stuff I Drew, part 4 (Yet More Champions of the Galaxy)

Okay, more of these stupid drawings.  Each of these was based completely on a real person.  The first two are revamps of existing characters in the game, Adam Blast and Lance Atlas.  Now you wrestling fans may remember that in 1999 the WWF's programming was very racy and fraught with sexual undertones, even introducing a porn star character named Val Venis.  I thought the names Adam Blast and Lance Atlas sounded a lot like porn star names so I based the revamped characters on that, using Venis as a model for Atlas, and Jeff Jarrett as the model for Adam.  Pretty stupid characters, but I was happy with the drawings themselves.

Based on a photo of Jeff Jarrett

And obviously based on Val Venis

The third character was an original (I used that term loosely given his name) I decided to call Damon Jericho.  I had seen Chris Jericho on WCW Nitro and thought that was such a cool last name for a wrestler, and since I couldn't come up with anything better I said "eff it" and stole the name.  Damon's character was also supposed to be kind of a rock star renegade persona, so it fit.

I based his look on a photo of Dave Mustaine from Megadeth.

And that's the art show for this week.....
