Months ago, when I was perfecting my drawing skills on muscle art, I sketched this great man and made a post here on IG. But I wasn't totally satisfied with the results, I didn't think that sketch was accurate enough, but it was the best I could do... until now! The WFF Pro Athlete and Natural Bodybuilder @mariozwingmann
was coming to my country and city to compete in the WFF Universe 2017, so as I was going to meet him in person I couldn't lose the opportunity of making something special for him. My friend @marcos_vini96
gave me a lot of encouragement to color the art I did before and deliver it to Mario in hands... but I decided to make a totally new artwork! It was my chance to get a more accurate version of him, so, even with short time, I dedicated myself so much and came with this new drawing. Again, Marcos Vinícius kept me going on and motivating me to finish the painting for the art. I had a tight schedule, had to balance it with lots of work and deal with the fact that the paint job takes a lot of time. But Mario deserved it, it was my homage to him, my tribute, my respect, my gift, my way of making him feel welcome here in Rio and take back with him something unique. And you know what? It was totally worth it! I finished the painting job just the day before the competition, and I couldn't be more proud about the results! I just LOVE this art! I got the accuracy I was looking for and I am so proud that I delivered it to the Mr. Universe 2017 in person! It was all worthy! Thanks @marcos_vini96
