Eddie Arkadian and "The Great White Hopeless"

Well, here is the second illustration in the series. The guy on the right is the head of the mob gang named Eddie Arkadian. He owns an arcade on the side. And the goon on the left is named, "Rock," or, "The Rock," or, "The Great White Hopeless." He received this nickname from a failed career as a heavyweight boxer. Rock is played by actor Mike Starr, who is notoriously pigeon-holed as playing the gumba henchman in some well known movies such as "Good Fellas," and "Dumb and Dumber." can research this movie all you want on your own. And if you haven't seen it, I recommend you's free.

This is an illustration of a scene involving the fish tank with the ambiguous creature inside. I was going to throw in my version of what the creature would look like really simply, but then I figured I would leave it be.

I have a ton of sketches made of almost all the main characters. I don't know how many more I will do, but I hope to shoot for at least two...been sidetracked as of late. This piece took me about 6-7 hours when all was said and done.
