Michaela the Dominatrix Referee obviously thinks Corey's being a bad boy.

Although these pictures in this format are pretty neat, I think the one of Corey makes it look like he is about 45 years old.
This is no way a slam as to what you are doing Rick as I like the conversions.

Does anyone else think Corey looks more than a little like a dark-haired Guile from Street Fighter? Just a thought...

I have to agree with you....sometimes this sketch effect will add years to certain people. It will show the smallest lines in faces. I went back and tried to clean the image up....Virtual plastic surgery, if you will.

Your images are very unique. Is the guy in the upper left portion of the picture, winking or sleeping with one eye open?

Great pictures Rick. The one of team Europe is amazing.

The one you made for me and my wife is the bomb. We get nothing but compliments on it.

But why no picture of the pacifier?

What is your price range for these sketches?!?! I really love all of them, IM not talking about spending thousands, but Id like to buy them, are they numbered to a limited amount? like a 1/100 or are they going to be mass produced?

You mean this guy?? The one in front of the Sardo banner?? This shot was taken at the IPT Reno event. What are the chances...!!! I can't seem to remember his name, he's a friend Of John Schmidt. (Smitty)

He bought a copy of this shot. I run into him at most tournaments.

Thanks Frank!!

I glad you guys are enjoying the poster!

To tell the truth....The pacifier incident happened so quick, I missed it. I couldn't have been 20 ft away at the time.

I coming over to L.A. on Monday, probably will be there about 4 days or so. Maybe I'll run into you! Called Fach and asked if he wanted to do some photos, haven't heard back from him yet.

THANKS again!

Prices are as follows...

8 x 10's ........75.00
13 x 19........100.00
20 x 30........150.00

And if you'd like to purchase a few, prices are negotiable.

Pretty reasonable prices I think. There is a lot of work going into these things. They will never be mass produced. As a matter of fact, I do 95% of everything right here at home. Only thing I have to send out is the 20 x 30 posters for printing.

This started out as a hobby 3 yrs ago, and pretty much still is.

98% of the business I do is 'personal' sketches of individuals.

I'm going to the Derby. If you'd like to set something up, I'd be more than gald to accommadate you.

THANKS!

No Rick. It is guy in the third row in front of the British flag on post # 17 on the left hand side. Maybe he sleeps with one eye open.

Upper left hand with white-beige colored shirt? Looks like his eyes are closed??

That's the same guy in the Dennis O. sketch. It looks like his eyes may be closed in this shot as well.

I think that is the same guy but if both of his eyes are closed, he must have a tattoo of a pupil on his left eyelid. :D

You caught me, I was up most of the previous night in the casino. I caught myself falling asleep about 4 or 5 times that day. It figures Rick would take the picture at that time. My buddy next to me looks like hes chocking himself...

Thank goodness. If Bill had gotten a tattoo on his eyelid he could easily have started entering some of the UFC tournaments because it would take one tough guy to get a tattoo on his eyelid.
