How ridiculous does this look, and how laughable is this concept?
I'd come to the conclusion last night as I was inking this (and consider by 'last night' I actually mean '2AM in the morning' - so I may have been a bit punchy) that I found as much entertainment drawing grotesque proportions on men as I do on women. Go figure.
I was basing a bit of this character from former WWE wrestling super star SCOTT STEINER. I remember him coming into the ring (with his wrestling partner Rick) and he often wore that greco roman wrestling head gear. I always thought he looked like a super hero. Then later on, when Scott showed up in WCW wearing a chain mail head dress and flexing his other-worldly muscle development that one can only assume came from the end of a needle - well, I was pretty convinced he was an alien. An awesome, super hero alien, that is!
Anyhoo... this image was inspired by a combination of those two versions of that man-behemoth. Come to think of it, I should've included that very distinct mustache and beard with trademarked blonde stripe down the middle of his chin. But that might've been too on the nose.
PS - The phallic, dildo-like quality that is his head, neck and shoulder area was unintentional. But certainly a very hilarious, welcomed accident.
