Cain Velasquez Painting




Hey guys and gals, again. Over the last couple of days I painted my first MMA portrait in a while, of our new heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. I love Junior, and I really thought he had an excellent chance of winning the fight, but WOW... wow wow wow did he absolutely get brutalised from the start of that fight to the very end by Mr Cain. How can you not admire a performance like that? Plus Cain is just the nicest guy in all of the interviews I've seen of him. He and Junior are quite similar that way, both super nice guys for the most part outside of the cage, and absolute monsters inside.

Anyway, I hope you guys like this. It was painted with acrylic, over 4 to 5 hours on painting paper. The background is messy looking because clean lines would make no sense with the style of the portrait, at least that's what I think.

Thanks to anyone who looks and/or comments!
