Down Goes Sockbat by sircle Down Goes Sockbat by sircle
As the title implies, this image of the Square-panted menace knocking out 'Drawn Together' co-star Wooldor Sockbat (his "cheap knockoff", according to the show) is based on the iconic image of Muhammad Ali knocking out Joe Frasier. Mostly done in response to all the people who think the fight would go the other way... :D

in the background, we have Patrick Star simply shocked over his best friend's behavior, Mr. Krabs shooting the pic to sell to the local papers, and Spanky Ham being elated over his gambling winnings (thus instilling a seed of doubt over the authenticity of the "knockout" - he's convinced Captain Hero of taking dives for profit in the past).

As for Hero himself... well, i dunno what he's doing there (other than adding another focal point to the image and evening up the character count) but that look in his eye tells me that Wooldor's pain is just beginning. *shudder*

Roughly six hours from concept to completion - pen and paper for the foreground characters, then into Illustrator CS3 for the background characters and the... uh... background. :lol:
there's a black and white photo version of this image in my gallery ---> ([link])

comments/crits are welcome as always!

I actually liked Wooldoor, too.

Still, nothing better than the original dude. GO, SPONGEBOB!

Since Wooldoor is an extreme overreacting rip-off os SpongeBob... I think he's kind of better, but well... if SpongeBob would ever meet Wooldoor, they should be kind of friends...

Anyway, just cartoon characters... there's no big deal with it, so... peace!

Great job on this piece...

no time for karate when you've got a crazed Sockbat on your hands. An old fashioned beatdown was his only recourse. :D

It's true, he is a Parody of SpongeBob Squarepants. But I figured that SpongeBob would want to be friends with WoolDoor cause they are the same goofy-ness

I don't think I can choose between the two. But I do love a good ole fashioned violent beat-down. The characters outside the ring look great too. Nice shadow effect.

:iconsircle:
sircle Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2007
yeah... the shadow effect was just a gradient layer with the transparency lowered. i'm extremely lazy, and if the effect i'm going for can be achieved by cheating, then i'll cheat. :lol:

thank you just the same, though!
