80s Wrestlers never looked so good

Here is an awesome video from VIMEO about an artist and his take on the popular wrestling legends from the 1980s/1990s.   “James White, the one-man powerhouse behind Signalnoise design studio, gives us a peek at one of his latest projects: illustrating the wrestlers of the WWE. His designs focus on the WWE’s heyday in the eighties and early nineties—back when it was a bunch of “big guys with a gimmick.” Watch as James sketches out his initial ideas and then transitions to the computer to enhance the outlines in Adobe Illustrator and add dimension and texture in Photoshop. The end result? A series of unique illustrations that celebrate the pop culture legacy of wrestlers like Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.” Bret “The Hitman” Hart Jake “The Snake” Roberts The Legion of Doom Macho Man Randy Savage The Ultimate Warrior “Rowdy” Roddy Piper Hulk Hogan “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat The Junk Yard Dog “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Koko B.
