The Warriors by Zach Oat

Following Rickey Purdin's amazing entries on this blog is a thankless job, but he always inspires me to draw better, so I revisited my Warriors sketch, which I had given up earlier, thinking it was too ambitious for my skills, and managed to tighten it up a bit and finish it.
I'm not saying it's the best drawing of any of the Warriors -- Ajax, Swan and Rembrandt are okay, I guess, but Cochise comes off looking like a woman -- I'm just happy to have finished it, and to have figured out how to do a crazy gradient background on the colored version.

All-Star Warriors by Rickey

Our next theme is actually The Warriors, the classic Walter Hill film, as chosen by TJ.

I cheated and tossed together an all-star Warriors team made up of (from left to right) wrestler "Road WARRIOR Animal," Mel's Gibson's Road WARRIOR "Mad Max," the Wizard Master kid from Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream WARRIORS, Swan from the WARRIORS, wrestler The Ultimate WARRIOR, and Antonio Banderas's 13th WARRIOR.

So many hardcore much ass to stomp.
