American Gladiators in COLOUR!

Following up last week's sketch with the full colour version. Man, these guys already seemed like cartoon characters to me just from watching the show. Which is probably why it was so easy to draw them even more cartoony!

Toa and Wolf are especially caricatured. And I think of Mayhem as the Predator (creature from the Schwarzenegger flick). He's really imposing and scary looking. Titan has the calm reserve of a leader even though there really isn't any one guy who stands out as the leader of this gang. I want to do a drawing of Justice with those big silly punching blocks on his know, the things the guys wear in the Gauntlet. Those things are dumb and should be on toy shelves by Christmas. And then there's Militia...he should probably smile more.
