It’s been a while since I last worked and uploaded one of the three drawings (inked) of Michiko Nishiwaki from the movie My Lucky Stars. Once I learned how inking works, I can just jump in and draw without much thought. Even more so doing it digitally since I can undo any sections that I don’t think quite work. It’s actually quite therapeutic.
I’ve had these inked and hatched Momochi drawings waiting for over a month, it is now time to finally upload them. Working with the line art, I also wanted the line art and inking to compliment each other. Somehow, less facial features works better. Once the details get too close to realism, certain facial features have to be drawn in a more realistic way otherwise it can make the face look off. I think playing with the line thicknesses can either help or hurt as well. I’ll have to experiment more to find out what works at certain times and what doesn’t.
Luckily there’s plenty of Momochi drawings I want to draw so I can practice more.
The final and main fight. iDubbbzTV VS. Doctor Mike. This fight was intense, There was heart, power, drama, skill, it had everything.
But before all of that we had the US national anthem sung by Airsoft Fatty. He did not disappoint. His presence was a nice little surprise, I hope he is a recurring aspect of the event.
At the beginning it was somewhat equal, but as time went on you could see the experience and physicality of Doctor Mike taking the edge. As he kept catching headshots, Ian’s technique began to suffer. It got to the point that Ian was forced to work it more as a slugfest whenever he recovered some energy. Despite Mike’s accuracy, he seemed to leave his body wide open throughout the fight. If Ian managed to add more power to his punches then the fight might have gone a bit differently. As long as both could hold out till the last rounds, they would have gone even harder and shown their strategy play out. This was an impressive fight, as it stands it seems like both are open to fighting again if Creator Clash 2 does happen. Ian so far seems to be pointing to yes.
Guts. That’s what Arin has. When they needed someone to fight he stood up despite going against a tank. Like seriously, even in the fight, Arin was showing no fear. Harley knew that the level was definitely unequal but wasn’t disrespectful about it No matter how many connecting punches Harley threw out, Arin didn’t back down and kept pushing towards Harley. I wonder if he as also trained like DJ Welch to stick close due to the size difference. I think when Harley learned that Arin wouldn’t go down easily, that’s when he went for a combination to try and end it. Despite the punishment and losing, Arin seemed like he wouldv’e tried to go towards the end. Respect.
Who would’ve guessed that we would see Michael Reeves fight in a boxing ring. And not only that, but a financial advisor. I’m so glad that Ian’s words were enough to convince Michael to agree and that both Michael and Graham would do it if they fought each other. The way Michael weaved and bobbed made him seem like a natural. All that training really paid off. I really hope he reconsiders and fights again.
This fight was among the most technical by both fighters. Hundar seriously looked like a gladiator. Despite everything this was one of the most even fights. When Hundar knocked AB for a brief second, AB returned the favor right away and also had Hundar in the floor for a bit as well. It was like an anime where they traded the same amount of blows. In the end though, Hundar’s stamina was stronger. Earning him the win.
This fight was really surprising. I had just learned about Justa Minx when the fighters were announced (I saw a couple of videos leading to the fight)and I had only seen clips of Haley dancing when they mentioned her prior to the fight (I don’t watch tiktoks currently). But, wow was this fight amazing. I think Haley had the better form and technique but Minx’s toughness and stronger punches ended up getting the win.
Somehow Justa Minx made such an epic moment also comical. The mouthpiece she was using made her look like she was smiling as she was getting punched. Going goblin mode is crazy.
The intro song and performance by the Australians was incredible. The Thai electro pop song was such a nice touch that was fun to hear and connected to I did a Thing’s videos. Alex and Aleksa definitely had the best walk in in the whole event. His outfit and his khakis was freakin hilarious. Man, they are a great duo.
I’m also a fan of TheOdd1sOut. The fact that it was his birthday made things such a big coincidence. He’s a really good sport. Hopefully he continues to train so that he can show his skill more next time. If anything, this will give him more story time content of his journey and from the backstage. With the birthday hat and his boxing robe, he looked like a little wizard. Despite losing, it seems that he wasn’t ready to give up. Maybe next time.
I guess there was no way that Erik would have been able to win since this was his first fight and in front of an audience. Dj Welch is built like a tank and has experiece in martial arts. I believe he said he did mma. Despite his smaller stature he completely dominated. I noticed that Dj Welch got really close to Erik and stuck to him throughout the whole fight. I later found out that this was a strategy to counter act his smaller stature. Erik might have lost, but he showed guts actually getting in the ring, hopefully both will be in Creator Clash 2.

Erik’s after fight video is pretty funny, there are cameos by Ian and Dj Welch:
Super Mega fought back to back. This time it was Ryan’s turn to fight Alex Ernst. This fight might have had the most heart out of all of them. They both fought through their exhaustion and went through a slug fest. This had real manga energy. When Ryan got knocked down but just stood back up again was a really touching moment.
On May 14th a lot of my favorite Youtube creators were in a boxing event made by Idubbbz and Anisa. The event was more entertaining than I could’ve imagined. When Ian said he wanted to give boxing the respect it deserves, he wasn’t kidding. Everyone went all out and showed tremendous heart. To the point It motivated me to do some art based on it.
Full event can be seen here:
To start things off, we have the first contenders. Dad (Nathan Barnatt) vs. Matt Watson (of SuperMega). I like Super Mega and Matt Watson but I truly do feel that there was no way crack power would be enough to beat Dad’s almost infinite energy and physicality. For those who have been following him and his content, you know what I’m talking about. Nathan’s physical abilities span a wide array of skills. All of them together give him a ridiculous amount of stamina, strength and pain tolerance. On top of that, when Nathan wants something he has this focus and follow through that’s quite intense. When Dad said he was made to solely destroy Matt Watson, I believed it.
Having said all of that, I still wasn’t expecting the outcome of the fight. He not only started strong, but it was fast. And the quick flurry of combos didn’t give Matt Watson a chance to counter. I think Matt only gave like three or maybe four punches. The fight ended in like 20 seconds. It really made it clear that the fights were real and being taken seriously. If the fighters didn’t take things seriously, then they would get hurt.
Dad and his Quantam Fists were a lot like an anime character using his ultimate attack from the get-go.
What I also love is that Dad has had a couple of opportunities open up because of this. That’s one of the other great side effects of this boxing event. There is so much variety amongst these Youtubers that it will provide new viewers that they might otherwise not have seen before.
