SethRollins by Wraik
Caricature of THE man, the undisputed Future of the WWE, THE Seth Rollins.  Freehand Airbrush and pencil done very quickly as an Amusement Park sample.  Quickly, except for the new title belt takes 4EVER to draw/paint.  Obviously this was done well before he acquired the UStitle belt for his other shoulder.
Cybear2 by Wraik
smaller size picture from my phone, of a poster I did for the Just Enough Trope Podcast.  They wanted "limited" color, and to keep it sort of stark graphic similar to the Black and White poster I did before it.  Haven't seen where they dropped the text on it when it was printed yet.  This was Pen and Ink with Airbrush background, and Design Markers for the blues on the main figures.
Cybear1 by Wraik
Photo of an Oversized Inked comic Illustration for the Just Enough Trope Podcast.  This was the first of two poster images I did for them, featuring Ka1iban's Cybears. 
Cesaro by Wraik
Cesaro Caricature I did after his Wrestlemania win of the Andre the Giant tournament.  With Paul Heyman who briefly became his mouth piece at this moment in time.  I really liked the Cesaro, but the Heyman though I see the likeness someday I'll take another crack at him since I think I can get more personality in a different take on him. 
Whitiger by Wraik
Freehand Airbrush Tiger painting I did for a buddies Birthday, also doubled as a chance to break in a new Iwata Airbrush. 
I've done a few more Amusement Park caricature examples this summer but most weeks I have been working six days drawing 8-10hrs each.  Going to start uploading a few of those examples soon, and maybe a few of my older ones which have never made it to DA here.  People may have seen some of them up if they passed by the Caricature booth out at Nickelodeon Universe in the Mall of America.  I've managed to live off various forms of artwork since high school, and a good deal of that has been live caricature since 1995.  I actually never set out to be a Caricaturist but I do enjoy it, depending on the clients who are mostly in a great mood and have treated me fairly well over the many years.  That being said/written, I keep thinking on other projects and soon the summer season wraps up for Caricature so I'm going to look into a few other projects and am hoping in September to brush up on comic book style inking, slight pun intended ;)
