R.O.B. (your robotic operating buddy!!!!)
This week’s post is “Ring King” from the NES. I played this one a bit, but I did NOT play this one as much as I played Mike Tyson’s Punch Out (Ring King didn’t even come close). This one was especially difficult for me, because of the issues with anatomy. In addition I am finding that for some pieces, there is a discrepancy between the initial sketch (which I am pretty happy with) and the final execution. For example, you will note that the width of the character between the sketch and the final piece are dramatically different. This is because between the two, the tricky part is making the painting look convincing, while keeping the energy and dynamic action in the final painting. It’s tricky. So much so, that I had to start this one over at least 3 times. In the end though I like it, and it’s going to go in the book. After this one, I just have one more left to do, “Legend of Kage”, and then i’ll be done. Then it’s on to the cover, and the surrounding promotional materials.
I love the fact that the game is tested and proven by Ray Leonard Jr.! What?!?!!?!?

In the end, it’s not the worst, but in practicing I learned a few tricks a long the way to make the painting process easier. If I go over my original sketches and create a simple line drawing, that will eliminate having to work so hard when starting the color phase. Also, anatomy anatomy anatomy and values. Very hard to master, but I will be psyched when I get it. So that’s it for this one, next up is Jimmy Lee (Double Dragon part II).
A little surprise this week as I did an extra mini piece. You can’t have a Nintendo tribute without Mario. Even though Mario has been done over a million times I haven’t really done Mario before, and so I figured “why not”. Here is the final!
