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 didn’t really have any plans when I started painting Terry. I just started painting forms so that I could play with the Real Tapered Wet Flat Brush. Again, I was amazed by how the strokes came out but sampling the colors was a pain. Of course the solution is to have a separate layer with the colors readily available off in some corner. I was thinking of adding some power effects to Terry’s punch but I think keeping it simple this time should be fine. I just wanted to focus on the pose and movement.
I quite liked the outfit Masaki used during the amusement park fieldtrip. Looking at the cover for volume 13 I got the chance to see the color scheme. Although I’m still not sure of the backpacks full color scheme.
I had this idea a couple of days ago but was worried that I wouldn’t have enough time to draw it. Luckily I was able to make it. For today’s prompt we have buddy. It’s strange, but Tomoko’s and Yoshida’s relationship reminds me of G Gundam. You know, how like in the show they communicated through their fists (although it’s just Yoshida actually punching, then again Tomoko attacks using even more dangerous moves). I really loved Yoshida’s look and segments from the amusement park chapters.
