Sombero And Lucha by wonderfully-twisted Sombero And Lucha by wonderfully-twisted
Drug lords have taken over the city in Central Mexico, gang violence and turmoil threaten the good people that cant afford to leave. corrupt politicians, crooked cops. No where to turn too. all would see lost


2 proud families who have battled for genterations,
each fighitng for honor in the ring and on the streets,
have chosen their champions.

they wear the masks of their families with pride
faceless warriors for the common man.

there will be blood

they fight for honor and tradtion
giving back the freedom that was taken



********************

after watchin Robert Rodriguez 'machete' after reading about the 'Mexploitation' as he puts it, i looked at the film and gave it a serious look at how i would take the concept and make it my own.

at first i wanted to do something off the wall and dumb, but then something happened from thought to paper and ink and this is the end result.
i never mentfor the characters to come out as cool as they do but thats how the concept took them. I wanted just one of the two to be wearing a luchador ( a Mexican Wrestler) and i wanted the other to wear the sombero, but then the concept of having two heroes who both never take their mask off, as is tradition. made the characters more romatic and mysterious in my eyes. wanted the two to be as diff as possible. for him i knew he'd be in a muscle shirt, pants,boot w/ spurs and tatoos .
her i wanted to have arm sleeves for outfit w/ fringe on it, chaps, duel pistols on her hips, all to give a cowboy look. then i threw a guitar on his back for coolness and added the sombero on the him just to complete the look. i feel these are two of the most visually interesting characters i've made.

The story here - reluctant partners from rival families against a common enemy - this has all sorts of potential. And the designs have such personality!
