Steve Austin: S.O.B.

Acrylic on 14" x 17" bristol board

Artwork by Rob Schamberger

WHAT. It's my latest and greatest painting of bionic redneck himself Stone Cold Steve Austin! WHAT.

This was all made with acrylic paint and I feel like I had another breakthrough here, on a technical level. Something really clicked, especially on the arm and the vest. I'm also very happy with how the colors overall work together. A lot of times I'll just throw a bunch of tubes of paint on the table, the way cans of beer are thrown to Austin, and say, "Figure it out, kid." Lucky surprises can happen and I feel like the light blue especially, mixed with the neutrals in the background really make the warm colors on the figure pop.
