The “Macho Man” Randy Savage Plus Prop Challenge

October 15th, 2012 by | Tags: , ,

It’s become a recent tradition for me to do the Plus Prop challenge every time I make a visit to New York Comic Con. First time it was with Venom and that was fun. Then I used Juggernaut and that worked out well too. This year I wasn’t sure who to use. With so many choices and some reader support, I settled on using the late, great Randall Poffo, known by many names: Bonesaw McGraw, Rasslor, Leonard Ghostal and most famously, “Macho Man” Randy Savage.

And so, I spent much of Comic Con’s four days badgering various comic artists for commissions at Artists’ Alley. The challenge is to draw Randy Savage plus another object. Any object. What that object is is up to the artist and not me. This one ended up being a ton of fun and most of the artists were incredibly into it. Before he even drew anything, Chris Giarrusso and I spent like a half hour talking about how great Savage’s promos were. So sit back and snap into the fruits of their labor.

  1. ‘objects’ apparently includes ‘half naked women.’ huh.

  2. “Randy Savage with Randy Savage Plus Prop Sketchbook” – I saw that one coming. I’d be disappointed if it hadn’t come.

  3. Apparently, one of Ryan Dunlavey’s strengths is drawing guitars, as seen with [url=http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=888783&GSub=123768]this sketch I got back in June.

    I’ve been juggling themes for a while now . . . like casting characters from a specific show in Geoff Johns’ emotional spectrum. So far, I’ve gotten red, orange and yellow.

  4. Everything about this is great.

  5. Oh, wow, you were in costume as Randy Savage? Awesome!

  6. @Mark Poa: That’s not me. Just a guy dressed as Savage who was in the right place at the right time.

  7. Oh man the Yorick one is going to have me chuckling randomly all night, I can tell already.

  8. Macho Man doing an elbow drop on the stress doll was my favorite until I got to the MM cosplayer pic. Oh, yeah.

  9. Awesome! That’s my pic with the two MK babes hanging off his arms, hehe. Thanks for asking for the pic, it was such a pleasure to draw!

  10. […] See more Macho Man sketches from that sketchbook here. […]
