For starters, this is my first-ever critique, so I'm not sure if it is a good thing or a bad thing. But, I want to offer more serious f...

Well, here's a quick recap I have on the stuff and my opinion.

Tag Team Match:  As long as New Day didn't win, it was cool.  Sucks for Jey Uso because he's already "the other Uso" as far as the WWE goes because the focus has been 95% Jimmy and 5% Jey over the past couple of months.

Battle Royale:  Um... don't expect much from Hideo Itami since they didn't make him a big deal.  And, Local Men ruin everything*.

Ladder Match:  Good match, although some spots were unnecessary.

Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins:  Good match, as expected.

Triple H vs. Sting:  Weird entrances for both of them, with Triple H taking the cake.  Good match, complete with an insane DX run-in... followed by a nWo run-in!  But, uh... no more point of Sting being involved because Sting lost.

Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt:  The match was okay, and Wyatt was actually the guy who controlled the match.  Undertaker comes out looking more like his Big Evil persona (short hair and leather pants).  Undertaker wins, but I think Wyatt should have won since they built Wyatt for nearly a year and this was the ultimate payoff.

John Cena vs. Rusev:  *sigh*  Another heel whose credibility is over, with this one making me really sad because I hate Cena winning.  And, they also wanna break up Rusev and Lana?!  A face Lana would be horrendous!  Sorry, even if you see the ending coming, that doesn't mean you are not allowed to complain about it.  But... at least Rusev had an awesome appearance with a tank.  A TANK!!!

Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns: Y'know, I was expecting Reigns to win as a big "fuck you" to everybody even with Lesnar coming back. And then Rollins tries to cash in, but Reigns overpowers him and beats him, too.

But, they didn't go that way.  They decided to have Rollins win, which is a huge surprise to me because I was expecting what I just typed.

As for the match, that was a pretty good idea to have Lesnar beat the crap out of Reigns, but Reigns hangs on in spite of the excess abuse, and realizes that he's gonna need some help to even the odds.  It's a far more believable version of the character than just a guy who believes he can walk over anything, considering that they had him actually lose to the Local Men.  And then Rollins successfully gets a cash-in attempt.

So, with the shape of the company, Rollins is the heel champion, with Reigns being the potential top competitor (hopefully Lesnar remains part of it... maybe as a face turn :D) .  Sure beats Reigns being at the top, considering that they did a very poor job with preserving potential opponents for Reigns (Rusev and Wyatt both losing), which meant that it would be Reigns vs. Big Show as the main program.

But, no Sheamus that night, which is a good thing for me.

Liquid Breathing Test Page One by JDogindy
Liquid Breathing Test Page One
For :iconimrustyokay:, where he wanted me to have a comic of a female diver going into deep water and be part of an experiment that involves liquid breathing.  Think of it being on par with "The Abyss".

Sorry for taking so dang long.

I wanted to mention this on Saturday, being a wrestling nut, but I wasn't able to, but I think a lot of you now know about the death of El Hijo de Perro Aguayo Jr., who passed away at the age of 35.  I won't lie and say I knew a lot about him, because I don't follow lucha libre as much as I should, but I did know of him and some of his accomplishments.

Here's the Cliff's Notes on the guy: He was the son of a legendary luchador, and unlike most children of wrestlers who cannot carry the same abilities as their father, not only got out of his father's shadow, but become more recognizable than he was.  He worked as both a technico (good guy) and a rudo (bad guy... my preferred side of lucha libre), and the majority of his in-ring work can be attributed to AAA as a rudo.  He's best known for his feuds with Heavy Metal and Latin Lover in his early years, a lengthy program with Mistico (who most American fans might know as Sin Cara... though I'd love to point out Botchamania did post something relating to him, I don't think it's that appropriate to discuss), and other great matches.  This unfortunate moment happened during Rey Mysterio's big return to Mexico, where he was going to work select matches with specific opponents as the returning icon, and this was a match that also featured Manik and Tigre Uno.

Okay, here's the part that bugs the daylights out of me; the news reporting for this, as far as the American point of view, is skewed more towards "No-name wrestler dies after being kicked by Rey Mysterio".  In a regard, that's understandable; Aguayo may have been a lucha institution, but he didn't have the American mainstream appeal as Rey Mysterio did because Aguayo's in-ring work was predominantly in AAA and CMLL, neither of which have that large of a foothold in the United States, where the vast majority of wrestling is basically WWE.  Hell, CNN even showed the move, which I vowed never to look at.  It also showcases that the sins of the past still affect the present as far as the mainstream appearance of wrestling in general.  Either they look at it as the cartoonish 1980s stuff from the WWF or the "crash TV" nonsense from the Attitude Era, not realizing that the product in 2015 is different from those eras.  Whether or not that's an improvement remains to be seen for some wrestling observants, but it's something that's never gonna change.

In the meantime, Rey has gotten death threats for this, where people are literally holding up guns in photographs threatening to murder him for this tragic accident.  I'm not the biggest Rey Mysterio fan.  I mean, I enjoy his early work from AAA, ECW, and WCW, but I wasn't that big of him in his WWE run.  Man, I remember how pissed off I was at Mysterio in 2010 where he single-handedly destroyed the Straight Edge Society, injured Undertaker's face with that kneebrace with resulted in him winning the World We-Don't-Call-It-Heavyweight-When-Rey-Has-The-Belt Champion, and being pegged as the "ultimate underdog" when the guy won 95% of his matches when he didn't have the belt.  Ironically, that was Rey's final full year as far as being capable of going full-time, since his last WWE match was the RAW after WrestleMania XXX.

But, to say that is so short-sighted, so cruel-minded, and completely misses the point.  What happened was a tragic accident, and nobody will carry the guilt and shame more than Rey.

So... there.

Getting the Dye Outta Your Hair
Yeah, finally posted this about a week after St. Patrick's Day.

But, basically, this is me wanting to show off some stuff I've been practicing with, and also my determination to put more effort into highlighting tones to various objects, improving my background details, as well as presenting my ability to post things in various layers.

And this time I mean it.

Hope you like the "softer" lineart this piece has.  I am gonna keep experimenting until I find something that doesn't look as clunky when I use the line tool.

Ah, shoot, no man!

Yeah, I remember some of the stuff you had done.  I'll go take a looksie.  Haven't made nearly as much improvements as you did, but life happens with me, and I'm not proud of it, but at least I'm honest enough to admit that.
