Colin Murdoch is a freelance artist based in North Yorkshire, UK. Mr. Murdoch created the Rocky art above as a private commission. Here’s his description…
This poster was illustrated as a private commission for a Rocky fan and collector, to be shown alongside a set of black gloves signed in silver pen, and we felt it would be appropriate to paint the image in black and white.
I tried to keep the illustration in a painterly style to give it a feeling of action.
You can see more of Colin Murdoch’s art at his website. He is available for commissions.
The Fan To Fan (F2F) podcast with hosts Bernie Gonzalez, Peter Charbonneau and Doug Ziegler takes a simple idea and does it well. Each episode of F2F features a conversation between fans. The subject could be movies, comics, TV, video games, toys, cartoons, or anything pop culture! Bernie, Peter and Doug pick a fan with a love and/or knowledge of the episode’s topic and then do a deep dive.
Recently, the F2F team spoke with me about Sly Stallone. When I was approached to be a guest, I explained that there are Stallone fans with greater knowledge and bigger collections than mine. Still, they were interested in how I became a Stallone fan, the creation of StalloneZone and more. I was already a fan of Bernie’s Midnight Mystery, so I checked out F2F and became a fan of it as well.
Talking to Bernie, Pete and Doug was a blast. It was truly fans hanging out. Here’s part one of the conversation. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did.
Click on the poster above by Mike Lynaugh and admire the detail that he put in it. Mike captured Rocky’s story from Rocky through Creed. All of Rocky’s opponents are there including Spider Rico and Thunderlips. Butkus is shown. Rocky’s address and Mighty Mick’s gym appear.
Click over to Mike’s Instagram where he writes of the time he spent on the painting. What a true Rocky fan!!
Anthony M – Le Duc created this sketch of Sly from Rocky II. Very nice! I found it and Anthony M – Le Duc on Twitter!
One of the things that I love about Twitter is that you can find so many things of interest on it. While scrolling the other night I came across this fun sketch of Rambo created by Jon Lankry way back in 2014! It kind of reminds me of a Rambo/Terminator mash-up and I like it!
You can see more of Jon Lankry’s art on Twitter.
Richard Cox created the cool Rocky art above. I was able to get on Richard’s commission list at HeroesCon 2019 and he came through like a champ. (See what I did there?) You can see more of RIchard’s art on his Twitter feed and here.
It’s no secret I’m a fan of Joel Tesch’s art. Check out his Apollo Creed & Rocky Balboa piece above and you’ll understand. Click on it and you can check out a championship-sized version.
This is Joel Tesch’s third appearance here. His first was with his Spider Rico vs The Italian Stallion at the Resurrection Gym. His second appearance was with his riff on “Yo, Adrian! I DID IT!!” I hope there’s a fourth Joel Tesch art appearance in our future.
You can see more of Joel Tesch’s art at his website, Twitter and Instagram.
Casey Edwards did the Rambo drawings above. You can see larger versions of the drawings by clicking on the pic above. Better yet swing over to Casey Edwards’ Instagram and check out all of his cool art. Here’s what he had to say about the pieces…
“Live for nothing or die for something”
Put this on the list of “things I never thought I would draw for any official capacity!”
