Rocky And Adrian

Whoa, it has been a crazy couple of weeks, but it's time to start posting some new art and updating the blog again. I decided to revisit this old piece I did of Actor Sylvester Stallone and actress Talia Shire from the movie Rocky. Rocky is a 1976 American sports film directed by John G. Avildsen and both written by and starring Sylvester Stallone. It tells the rags to riches American Dream story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated but kind-hearted debt collector for a loan shark in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Rocky starts out as a club fighter who later gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship. It also stars Talia Shire as Adrian, Burt Young as Adrian's brother Paulie, Burgess Meredith as Rocky's trainer Mickey Goldmill, and Carl Weathers as the champion, Apollo Creed. The film is also the reason why many pro fighters, including myself wanted to become fighters in the first place :) Below is the revised painting followed by the original (which I thought was awesome at the time, heh) and the reference material. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy!!! Rocko_adrianne_redo001 Rocko_adrianne rocky26
