As promised, this is the finished version of the Ric Flair tribute I completed for THE WRESTLER. I want to give a special "thank you" to Dave Malan, who's kind encouragement and advice has been invaluable. Due to deadline constraints, I was not able to apply his suggestions to this piece, however I am currently working on some other paintings that have improved drastically thanks to his generosity.
It is extremely exciting to see your work grow by leaps and bounds simply because other artists in this community are kind enough to share their advice. I thank you all and can't tell you how much I appreciate it!
