Even before the remake, I painted these.

Back in 2006, I was getting back into painting - something I hadn't done in almost 10 years. I had been looking at a lot of early American painters and had been interested in a certain period of (mostly New-England) portraiture and was looking to do something similar. The "I am 8-Bit" art show had come out the previous year and I got to thinking about the great portraits of the Punch-Out fighters in the between-rounds screens. In less than a month I knocked out this series of 11 paintings. They are all oil on canvas board. Each opponent is 8" x 10" and the portrait of Mac and Doc is 12" x 16". Enjoy:


You can see some of the process these went through here if you're interested.
