"Stipe Miocic's Fraternal Twin" acrylic on 12" x 12" panel

Stipe Miocic is the reigning, defending, undisputed heavyweight Mixed Martial Arts champion of the world.
His lesser-known fraternal twin is a server at Dairy Queen.

This is a great painting. Again, I really love your painting style. This even looks like oil to me, and something about it being so small makes it precious. Well done.
 
Thanks Carol. I normally paint 16x20 to 30x40. But I have these 12" panels I made over the winter with plans for doing some urban Plein air this summer- with COVID that's not happening. So I'm doing practice "portraits" when I find an interesting face - trying to capture the essence or element that attracted me to it - not worrying so much about a likeness. So I'm calling these fraternal twins, impersonators, look-alikes, cousins, etc.
 
I wasn't familiar with the guy so I looked him up and you have a definite likeness. Well done.
 
Thanks Snoball, I am a big fan of yours.

I can get a good likeness, by tweaking and noodling - but then it tends to look overworked (cause it is) without noodling I'm at the fraternal twin level.
