Boxing With "S"






Boxing With “S”

Yesterday in the evening at a costume figure session, “S” showed up to fight with a pair of old gloves.  Battling back, I attempting to capture his poses in graphite.
He posed both as the punisher and the punished, and then of course, for the photo opp.
1st & 2nd: 24”x 18”
3rd: 11”x 18”

  3. Wow, this brings such a feeling of actually being there!
    You convey the movement of the boxers, and the cheering (or booing!) of the crowd so authentically.
    Well done, Anthony. Yet another masterpiece!:)

    1. You make this so much more exciting. In actuality the studio was so quiet. Just a bit of background music, and the scratchy sound of graphite on paper. Only mow after reading your comments do I hear the crowd..
      Thank you

  4. ... Suite... Je faisais un petit retour en arrière, vu mon infidélité !!

    J'ai rencontré de nombreux personnages croqués... Ces derniers sont accompagnés du "son" qu'on pourrait entendre tant l'atmosphère a été bien crée...

    Gros bisous.
