Update:  The picture to the left has a new title and writeup:  'Avatar -100 Greatest Female Fight Pictures.  The original writeup and title still are current with the initial upload: 'Stag At Sharkey's - Redux'.  The following is the writeup for the comments section of a rendering that was uploaded on July 5th, 2009.
‘Stag At Sharkey’s – Redux’.  This is a stunning masterpiece of female combative art, and in my opinion sets such a standard that there may be other’s that perhaps may be its equal, but none that can surpass such a creation.  It has taken almost a year from start to finish to complete this rendering, and it was worth the wait.  It was done by a French artist who goes by the name of MikeG, or as he signs off his latest e-mail to me incorporating my latest tweaks:  Mike.  The framed 4 feet x 3 ½ feet rendering on artists canvas hangs on my house wall.  Redux is from the Latin word ‘reducere’ (bring back) and in English means: ‘brought back, restored’.   In this case the inspiration for this work was another masterpiece painted by the American George Bellows in 1907 titled: ‘Stag At Sharkey’s’.  The same pose, and are you ready for this, the same fight outfits with the same colors, of those two male boxers are hereby brought forward into the 21st Century and updated to a modern boxing ring, with two female boxers in their stead.  And the referee has also been changed to a woman.  After all, this is the era of equal opportunities.  And that is as it should be.  To reiterate, our intent was to try and be faithful to both the pose and spirit of the Bellows work. We have updated the changing American mores by substituting women boxers for men fighters, and yet clothed them exactly as the men depicted in the ring. Concerning the referee, we have evoked a bit of artistic license. As a favor I ask each one of you to please Google: George Bellows 'Stag at Sharkey's' to view the comparison.

Eating Leather Too’, by Gavin Michelli. What we have here is a major masterwork by a major talent. This is a case whereby art begets art. The model for this rendering was an illustration done years ago by another major talent by the name of Robert A. Moody, who went by: RAM. However, that is what he went by in his early period. Later, when he changed is illustrative style he went by: Rumbler. And that is the name he used when he did the illustration that inspired this painting to be created. I’ll upload the Rumbler work next week. Gavin did an earlier work for me titled: Eating Leather’. Now it becomes clear of how the current title evolved. The college English Majors will immediately pick up on the fact that ‘Too’ should be ‘Two’, since it’s the second picture with the same theme. Well, I’m invoking poetic license here by using: ‘Too’. The original of his work, which is framed and hanging on a wall in my house, measures 2 1/2 feet wide by 2 feet high. From the start the artist and I worked to make this a major work, and one way is to have a ringside crowd watching the action. The previous work he did for me was intended to be more intimate, and as such, smaller; with no crowd. The following was written about the previous work, but much of it is apropos as relates to this one:
“The title is: ‘Eating Leather’, and was created by Gavin Michelli. What we have here is a minor masterpiece by a major talent. Minor, as differentiated from some of the epic masterworks I’ve uploaded onto the ‘DA’ Site. It measures 2 feet x 2 feet square – Not the big 3 footers of the epics. As any woman will lie, size doesn’t matter, and in this case it doesn’t. What does matter is compacted in this tight rendering, and visually rings true about the bloody brutality of female boxing, mixed in with tongue-in-cheek humor (look at the snarl on the Blonde’s face); over-the-top sexuality (forget the bare breasts – look at the excited clits that are outlined in the boxing trunks); great attention to detail (the stitching and laces on the boxing gloves); dramatic POV (Point Of View) of not one, but two boxing gloves heading toward the viewer’s face; and finally the bold colors. I commissioned Gavin to make visual what was in my mind’s eye and he did it magnificently. Needless to say he does commissions and is a joy to work with. His patience is boundless, which has to be, working with me. I’ve never had an artist work for me, I have always tried to have them work with me. This rendering is a perfect example.”
As I said, Gavin does commissions. His Deviant Art Site is: gavinslayer.
Well, ‘Nuff said. So I hope that you ‘Too’ will enjoy this remarkable work. I have. And do. Drew. His Link: gavinslayer.deviantart.com/

Archive GunnerSteve3D:Venus Pounds Face Of Faith
‘Archive GunnerSteve3D: Down And Dirty – Venus Pounds Face Of Faith’.  Render by: GunnerSteve3D.
This is the full title as the DA title block doesn't have enough slots for all the words. 

Boxer fella (Sports) by Ehsartem

One doesn’t often see a scene like this in a boxing match with gloves.  This is not MMA (Mixed Martial Arts).  Which is basically a: ‘Ground And Pound’ type of brutal endeavor.    
Venus is normally a clean fighter.  But there are times when a boxer will show disrespect for her opponent, and mouth off before a fight, or during it; or starting to land low blows, or becoming taunting with her gloves.  Faith must have done one, or a number of these disrespects aimed toward Venus (That in addition to her aiming her gloves at the body and face of Venus), and the Negress simply lost it.  
Venus was pissed off and has punched her now hateful rival to the canvas, and in addition is going to make sure she doesn’t disrespect her again.  If it takes going ‘Down and Dirty’, that is the direction she is willing to take.  
Of course the female Referee is doing her job and is immediately heading toward the debacle and fully intends to stop this mashup of unsportswomanship conduct.

Steve has an astonishing eye for angles and perspectives, and an equally superb talent for POVs.  And in this powerful ‘Point Of View’ he has just created what will become, in my opinion, an instant classic, depicting a: ‘Down And Dirty’ fistic mashup.      

So the question arises, if this is a normally rare scene, are there any other artworks that show a boxing match degenerating into a ‘Down and Dirty’ brawl on the canvas floor of a boxing ring?
Are there ever!  Here are some examples:

The following are Steve’s thoughts on this render when he uploaded it onto his DA Site on October 11, 2018.  They are from his DA main Site ‘Artist Comments’ section:

Title: ‘Venus Pounds Faith’. “It's been a while since I last posted....    
DA has deleted quite a few of my renders, so I just wait for them to delete more!
Anyway enjoy this render of Venus and Faith.
Comments Welcome And Appreciated.”

There have been others who also have expressed what they think about this render.  The following are from Steve’s DA Site ‘Viewers Comments’ section:

From: VeraStone – October 11, 2018:  “Vera here.  Hitting an opponent while down? Venus is on my KO list now.”

From: Seleneboxer – October 12, 2018:  “I like Venus, but that's nasty.  She's on my KO list, too.
You can accomplish a lot with a kind word – But you can accomplish a lot more with a kind word and a good left hook!”

Reply from:  “GunnerSteve3D – October 11, 2018: “She hasn't hit her yet and it looks like the ref will step in.

Reply from: drewhammond – October 12, 2018:  “Come on Steve.  That descending glove is about to smash into Faith’s face within a millisecond.  There’s nothing the Referee can do about this punch.  The later ones, and there will be because Venus is so enraged, are a different matter.  And perhaps a follow on picture.”

Moving on:
There are milestones in life as there are milestones in DA.  Concerning my Main Deviant Art Site, every time an additional 50,000 hits are registered, I consider that a milestone and seek to have a picture created in order to visually depict my hitting such an honor.
As an artist evolves he or she will also face a milestone.  And it can be a daunting one as they trudge toward the unknown fraught with risk – For in the distance is the promise of one of two momentous results: Failure or Success.
And that is what Steve, this artist faced.  He has a DA Site he calls: ‘GunnerSteve3D’ and I consider him one of the finest artists in all DA in depicting combative women.  I wanted the best so I went to the best to create a few of my DA HITS milestones.  

And here is one that features Venus, who is the boxer at the top of this lengthy tome:
This is the visual link to that milestone render he did for me which I titled: ‘1,200,000 DA HITS: The Art Of Creation – Redux’:  LINK:

Now to the artist himself:

My good friend from England, Steve, who has a DA Site he calls: ‘GunnerSteve3D’ has opened up a ‘Patreon’ website.  I consider him as one of the finest artists in all DA when it comes to depicting combative women.  However, this newly established website offers more.
Much more.

To that end, or to be more accurate, to a new beginning, I want to help spread the word that he now has the time, and inclination to do commissions again, as well as establishing a full blown Patreon Website in which he is offering an increasing number of original pictures of all sort of imaginative images – Ranging from my favorites that he does, which are combative women, to the opposite side of the artistic spectrum which are visions of erotic beauties that can only come out of such an imaginative mind, of whom I consider an artistic genius.      

Here is the introduction to Steve's Patreon Website:

'Welcome!
I will be creating exclusive renders just for you of all my favorite models Lara, Natasha, Lilly and so on
Most will be adults only (you have been warned).
You might know me from DA (Deviant Art) as I have been posting thousands of renders there for years.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could maybe support me a little by becoming a patron of my Patreon Site.
I do use the Charge Up Front feature.

And here is the link to Steve's Patreon Website:  LINK: www.patreon.com/gunnersteve3d

I have decided to set up an ‘Archive’ featuring a folder on my DA Main Site titled: ‘Best Of GunnerSteve3D – DA Site Folder‘.
I’ve talked to Steve about this and he gave me his okay to proceed with this.  To this end I will choose what I consider his best works and upload them onto this newly created folder.
And this is one of them.  

In my DA Main Site: ‘drewhammond’ I have a number of folders, and as such each folder will have a full size avatar as its logo.
This folder will hold what I consider some of the greatest combative female illustrations in all of Deviant Art. How many will be added to this Best Of GunnerSteve3D collection, I just don't know.  As time goes by there will be additional masterpieces he has created for others, as well as me – All of which I consider will be timeless in their quality; and as such will be introduced into this folder.
When selecting an avatar for a group folder it has to be the best of the best because it will represent all of the other renders in that folder.  
Here is the visual link to that Avatar:  LINK:

Avatar:Best Of GunnerSteve3D-DA Site Folder by drewhammond
 

That is why I have chosen this one, as I consider it a masterpiece in representing both the imagination and attention to detail that Steve brings to all of his works.
This astonishing picture is a combination of a stunning beauty as well as the exuberance she shows in her face – The pure joy of knowing that she has just won a tough fight against a worthy opponent.
And that sealed the deal on my choosing this render as the avatar.
GunnerSteve3D titled this superb work of art: ‘Lara Versus Venus Number 43’.  Steve did a series of 44 panels detailing a complete ‘Fight To The Finish’, between Venus Williams and Lara Croft from the very beginning to the knockout of an ending, and this is the 43rd panel.  For this picture to fit into my ‘Best Of’ Avatar, I had to completely change his title to make it more descriptive.  It is now titled:  ‘Avatar: Best Of GunnerSteve3D – DA Site Folder’.  The following is my reasoning concerning this change.
Starting with: ‘Avatar’. Because that is what it has become.
Concluding with: ‘Best Of GunnerSteve3D – DA Site Folder’.  Because it is.
Now, there are times when I’ll modify or change one of this artist’s titles, and this is one of those times.
Although I changed this artist’s title, what I won’t change is my admiration of Steve’s artistic genius.
And that is all I'm about to say on this subject.

Steve also has a blog website.  Here is the link to that site:  LINK: gunnersteve3d.blogspot.co.uk/

To conclude:
“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who, with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.”  Pablo Picasso.

Steve is one of those artists who have the ability to transform yellow into a bright light.  

‘Nuff said.

Yes, art is dangerous.
Where it is chaste, it is not art.”

The closeup picture at the top of this lengthy tome was created by an artist from Argentina and his name is Patricio Gandara.  He has a DA Site he calls: 'PGandara'.  Patricio does commissions, and this is one of them.  As you can see, he is as good as they get.
It is part of a larger render – One that is an epic masterwork.  I titled it: ‘2,750,000 DA HITS: BUFD – Beyoncé Kayos Rihanna’.  Render by: PGandara.  BUFD = Booty Up Face Down.  
And here is the visual link to that complete picture.  LINK:

2,750,000 DA HITS:BUFD-Beyonce Kayos Rihanna by drewhammond

 
This is a closeup of the uppercut punch that Beyoncé whammed onto Rihanna’s jaw, that knocked her out – Both out of the fight and out from her conscious mind.    
It is from the large television monitor of the HBO sponsored boxing match that they billed as: ‘Boxing With The Stars’.

The obvious question can be asked: ‘How can this be?’  Why would two women, who have all of the monetary wealth we mortals can only fantasize about, put their face and body on the line to fight each other in brutal gloved fistic combat – For money?  
Over 400 years ago, one William Shakespeare, wrote in his play ‘Othello”:

‘O, beware, my lord, of jealousy!
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock.
The meat it feeds on.’   Shakespeare: ‘Othello’.

Not only we mortals, but superstars can also be green with envy.  And jealousy.
As per usual, the Bard said it both succulently and profoundly about envy and jealousy, and gave it a color – Green. His stanzas written over 400 years ago are still apropos to this day, for as we enter into the color of green, we shall confront the ‘Green-Eyed Monster Of Jealousy and Envy’ that Shakespeare wrote about.

This picture is a visual image of what jealousy, fueled by a lot of money, can buy.
Here is the background:
Beyoncé and Rihanna don’t like each other.  They don’t hate each other, but the egos of superstar singers like Queen Bee and RiRi can clash as concerns erupt about who is the more popular singer.  Popularity aside, it can get even worse of who is the BEST singer.

Home Box Office decided to capitalize on this rivalry and suggested to both women that they appear in a special HBO production they would title: ‘Boxing With The Stars’.
HBO wanted to create a hit TV series similar to: ‘Dancing With The Stars’, but at first was stymied on the approach.  Then the network ‘Suits’ soon realized that the cliché: ‘If You Can’t Fight ‘Um, Join ‘Um’ could be turned on its head by developing a show that would ‘Fight Them’ – Literally.
Consequently they exploited the actual professional and personal enmity between Beyoncé Giselle Knowles and Robyn Rihanna Fenty and presented each of them, in turn, with the ‘Boxing With The Stars’ concept.  Almost without hesitation, each one accepted the serious offer, especially when they were given the details that each woman would be featured as a ‘Star’ in a very serious ‘Fight To The Finish’ boxing match between the two of them in a HBO televised special devoted entirely to them.    
 
And the picture uploaded at the top of this writeup is the result.  For this is a brutal picture of the resolution of a brewing hostility between two powerful women that needed to be resolved.
And was, most painfully.

Now this knockout of a finish is the conclusion of the HBO (Home Box Office) television special that eventually was titled: ‘Boxing With The Stars – The Grudge Mashup’.  
At first both the public and entertainment media were skeptical.  However, when each superstar joined a boxing gym and hired the best fight trainers in the area to seriously train them in the brutal art of attempting to render a rival into an unconscious state, the social media first became astonished. And then believers.  
This resulted in a frenzy of series reporting by the Mainstream news organizations – Both written as well as televised.  

And so it came to pass that Beyoncé Knowles and Rihanna Fenty jointly decided to come together in order to settle their differences about who was going to be the ‘Alpha Woman’ in the only civilized way they could – By pounding away with boxing gloves on each other’s face and body until one was rendered unconscious.

To that end an agreement was signed that detailed the contest rules.
The glove size were 8 ouncers and conform to American amateur boxing rules for women as ‘Light Welterweight’ which ranges from 132 to 141 pounds.
Beyoncé is 5’ 7” and her weight fluctuates between approximately 130 to 137 pounds, while Rihanna is 5’ 8” and her weight is usually between 132 to 140 pounds.  Size and weight-wise it was an equal fight.  
Here's where the money comes in.  Each of these women had the backup money to take as much time off for full time training that they thought necessary.  It was agreed that two months would be sufficient to learn the fundamentals of boxing, and get in top shape for what could be a long exhausting battle.  They would fight 3 minute rounds with a 1 minute rest between rounds until one was floored and counted out by the Referee.  It was an open end match and not go to a decision.  Ring judges need not apply.  
Now the expenses would pile up, starting with each having a full time male personal boxing trainer and a few full time female sparring partners.  The number involved in the training were very limited, and of course, each sworn to secrecy.  Both were diligent and trained almost every day for two months nonstop.  The irony is at the end of those months both women were in the best shape of their lives; what with the miles of daily road work running, lifting weights, their muscles becoming lean and mean, and buffed hard abs.  
These would be men’s rules for 3 minute rounds, and the sparring, for round after round of 3 minutes of constantly moving and punching, with only a 1 minute rest period between rounds were exhausting at first.
But both kept at it because there was a second part of the irony.  The horror is each would be in the best shape they had ever been, and at the end of it all each was to face an opponent whose very existence, whose sole dedicated purpose that evening was to attack, in heated fury and rage, the face and body of superb shapeliness and pound it to ruin.  Talk about terrifying, but these women pressed on because they were made of stern stuff.

In conclusion the battle was rather even for seven rounds.  But in the 8th round Beyoncé ducked under one of Rihanna’s round house swings, and countered with a classic ‘1, 2 Combination’, with a vicious left to the side of her face, stunning her for the moment needed for Queen Bee to slam a from the floor uppercut to the base of the chin, snapping RiRi’s head backwards and out of the fight.
That blow is shown on the arena’s HBO giant monitor, which was at 2:10 in the eighth round.  
Rihanna did an ‘El Foldo’ by first dropping to her knees, and then pitching forward, the side of her face whamming onto the awaiting canvas floor.  
Although her eyes were open, there was nobody home – She was totally unconscious.
The female Referee made it an official knockout by stepping in and performed the mandatory ten count.  This battle was then over.
After one of Rihanna’s trainer’s saw her slump to the canvas, she threw in the towel.  Now, ‘Throw In The Towel’ is a boxing cliché that has gone mainstream, but in this case it has to be viewed as literal.

Concerning this knockout of a picture – Literally, I think the following is apropos for this work:

‘A sailboat is safe within a harbor.
But that is not what sailboats are for.
Nor where they belong.
They are meant to harness the wind.
To challenge mighty oceans and storms at sea.
To prevail against such terrors,
With the power of the wind and their sturdy sails.
Both the ship and her captain to venture into ‘Harm’s Way’.
To know anew, the meaning of courage and freedom.
The gift and the curse is to be the master of his ‘Ship Of Fate’.
This in order to learn the two extremes of life.
The exultation of joy in winning total victory.
Contrasted with the despair of utter defeat.
Between the ‘Alpha Of Triumph’ and the ‘Omega Of Defeat’,
Is to experience the highs and lows of a life lived full.’    Drew Hammond.

This scene has pictorially explored that moment when each of these female combatants has just experienced their ‘Alpha’ or ‘Omega’.

As an aside:
I designed the 'EVERLAST Female Boxing Thong' that each fighter is wearing.  It was Patricio who made visual what was in my 'Mind's Eye'.  Their purpose is to establish a fight thong that has a beltline.  
Regular boxing trunks have a beltline, and it is a different colored 'Waistband'.  This contrasting color waistband serves as a beltline; and the rule: 'No hitting below the belt' serves as the visual guide to this boxing rule.
I cut the size down for the female fighters in order to expose each woman's 'Pooch' to legal lower belly punches.  
In boxing terms a ‘Pooch’ is not a small dog.  It is the small bulge that some women have at the lower end of their adwoman.  Even if they don’t have a bulge it is still a pooch which contains the essence of their womanhood – Their womb.  The shock of a punch to a woman's uterus can be the first blow of a 1, 2 combination.  That initial punch can stun a female boxer for the moment needed for the follow-on number two punch that would go directly at the side of the jaw - Oftimes ending the fight right then by KO.
Here is the visual link to a picture that first used those redesigned women's EVERLAST boxing thongs. I titled this picture: ‘2,600,000 DA HITS: Right To The Tit – The Face Of Pain’. Rendering by: Abelundercity: LINK:

2,600,000 DA HITS:Right To The Tit by drewhammond


Moving on:
The question can be raised of why do teenagers, as well as grown women, on occasion, fight each other?  I think the following is apropos here:
“There is this dirty little secret about how women feel about their female rivals. Men have always suspected that such conflict, and variations of this scene, are what goes on in their deepest thoughts. Of jealousies so dark, sometimes even malevolent, that they have to remain hidden in that unique area of the female psyche – ‘The Secret Garden’ of their inner mind. Thoughts so dark, they will never be shared, not even with best friends – Be they male or female.  Unless you can get them really drunk, either on booze or marijuana.  Then they’ll talk – Perhaps.  To that end, herein, made visual in this picture, is one of those dark thoughts.”

Now to other matters of great import:
Over the years, a number of viewers have written to me essentially asking, ‘What the fuck is going on here?’  Or, ‘Why are you depicting women fighting each other?’
Well, the only answer I can give is this:  “You are what you love.  You are not the one who loves you back.”  Which means what you love defines you.  It doesn't matter what others think.  
Of great danger is allowing those who love you define you.  It’s wonderful to be loved, but those who love you are human, and as such have human frailties.  If you allow them to define you, then when those frailties come to the fore, and they will – It’s a part of being human, then the hurt can be excruciating.  Sometimes to the point of suicide.

Now to the essential point:  
Be it Beyoncé versus Rihanna, or Scarlett versus Tyra – It comes down to two women, each of whom have determined to prove to themselves, and to themselves alone, of if they have what we pilots call: ‘The Right Stuff’.  They know full well that when they enter a boxing ring it is dangerous, and can be lethal on occasion.  Now, I can tell you that flying an airplane can be scary at times – When weather conditions rapidly deteriorate and you can’t see a damn thing, or having to land on a short runway and there is a 40 mph crosswind, or the ultimate terror, which is your engine quits.  It is those, and a myriad of other aerial situations, when you need the right stuff to not panic, to trust your instruments, and yourself.

And what is the ultimate test of any woman’s courage, spirit, body, and endurance?  In a word: War.  And boxing, be it with bare fists or gloves, is fistic war – Almost to ‘In Extremus’.  Actual warfare is both figuratively and literally: ‘At the point of death’, and from the Latin literally means: ‘In the farthest reaches.’
Our current civilization has modified this form of fistic war into a sport.  And ‘Aboveground’ has rules and ‘Belowground’ has none, with ‘Underground’ somewhere in between – Rule wise that is.
But this sport always takes place in some form of ‘Battleground’.  And in the ‘Background’ always lurks that ultimate price of warfare the: Spectre Of Death’.
Boxing is a dangerous sport and the ghost of death is always near.  In fact I had an artist friend of mine make visual that ghost.
Here is the visual link to that picture I titled: ‘Ghost Of Death - Always Near’. Rendering by: MkG2k7: LINK:

Ghost Of Death-Always Near by drewhammond


The end result is these women become fistic warriors, and are willing to take a chance on propelling themselves ever forward in order to emerge victorious in this one on one war.  Knowing full well the fickle compass of fortune, or luck, or whatever, can swing against them and the painful consequences would result in their becoming severely battered about the face and body, bloodied, bruised, ultimately beaten into unconsciousness.  Conscripts who are joined in ferocious battles with outcomes that can end badly as they become casualties of war.

Now, I consider this picture as an extraordinary work of art because it is meant to be damn painful to look at.  It was not fought for the sport of it.  No, it was to settle accounts between two powerful women, and each knew the other was intent on humiliating her.
One got her wish – Totally.
In addition, it was to satisfy egos, and the result is one ego was elevated to the same degree that the other was inversely lowered.

Over the years I’ve issued commissions to various artists.  I realize that when I commission a picture from an artist, I am not the easiest person to work with – This because I have a vision in my mind’s eye, and want very much to see that vision made visual.  And that is what this artist did – Exactly.
He has a sense of humor and it is this trait that gets him past my grumpy stages.  He is also patient, and will try to do whatever he can to make a commission come out exactly as the customer wants.
In conclusion, I consider this superb work as very powerful as well as quite moving – Each in its own unique way.

Patricio has done other commissions for me, and here is the visual link of an example of one of them. I titled it: ‘Every Woman’s Fantasy: Fight They Want To View – Redux ’. Render by: PGandara: LINK:

Archive mark393:Deja Vu-Eva KOed By Left Uppercut
‘Archive mark393: Déjà Vu – Eva KOed By Left Uppercut’.  Render by:  mark393


The artist Mark Pidgeon, who has a DA Main Site he calls: ‘mark393’, has the eye for both perspective and POV ‘Point Of View’.  This is an example of his superb ‘Eye’ for POV.  
And speaking about ‘Eye’, there are Eva’s eyes rolling back into nonconsciousness.  She will be fully asleep before her back hits the welcoming canvas.

The expression: ‘Déjà Vu’ is in the title for humorous reasons. It's sort of an inside joke of which I shall explain:
By definition ‘Déjà Vu’ is derived from the French, and means: ‘Already Seen’.  It is an intuitive experience, and when it occurs it seems to spark a person’s memory of a place they have already been, a person they have already seen, or an act they have already done.
In this case it is: ‘An act she has already experience before - Which is an understatement of the first magnitude.  This because in an earlier boxing match she had been rendered nonconscious by another opponent, the RedHeaded Alyson; and it was via the same type of punch – A solid left uppercut to the jaw.
In the boxing trade, Eva was about to be known as: ‘A Sucker For A Left Uppercut’.

Moving on:
I have come to find that this artist, Mark, is a great artist with an inventive mind and a wonderful sense of humor, that is only exceeded by his sense of whimsy – And that is ‘In Deed’ a rare gift from the Greek Muses.  Currently most of his works that I have uploaded are in my DA Group Site (CombativeWomen) and located in that Group's folder titled: 'Avatar: Mixed Matches Folder – CombativeWomen Group’.

However, this original picture by ‘mark393’ has not been uploaded into that Group’s Folder.  I am now including it into my DA Site for the first time.    
As such I am uploading those renders from both the Group as well as my Main Site and placing them in an archive folder in my DA Main Site into a folder I have titled: 'Avatar: Best Of mark393 Folder'.

The following is what the artist thinks about the render at the top of this lengthy tome, and is from his DA Site ‘Artists Comments’ section when he uploaded it on February 7, 2015:

Title:  ‘Eva KOed’: “By popular demand...”.

There have been others who also had thoughts about this excellent work of art, and the following are from Mark’s DA Site ‘Viewers Comments’ section:

Starting with me:

From: drewhammond – February 7, 2015:  “One of the most unusual POVs ever created.  But it's also unique, and as such one of the greatest ‘Point Of Views’ ever shown.  It seems this particular setup shot and position is so unique that it's being seen for the first time.  Congrats Mark, on a NEW UNIQUE CREATION.  What an imagination.  Drew.”
 
Reply from:  mark393 – February 10, 2015:  “Thanks, Drew.
I'm not quite happy with the camera view though. Maybe I'll come up with another trick of placing it later.  You see, what I was aiming at, produced toooo much in the way of distortions which could not be compensated for by changing the character's geometry.”

From: Patriot1776 – February 7, 2015:  “Eyes are rolling back from the brain trauma!”

Reply from:  mark393 – February 7, 2015:  “Oh yeah. Her second was waiting too much before throwing in the towel...”

From: Colinscrod – February 7, 2015:  “I'm enjoying your little experiments in weird perspective.  Bravo!”

Reply from: mark393 – February 10, 2015:  “Well, it was modest fun, I confess.”

From: gotmilknot61201 – February 8, 2015:  “Nice Work.
Awesome left hand, and I agree about the late towel!
Nice touch on the mouthpiece also.  
Like the look of the Ref.
Very fine job!”

The question then can arise, is this POV that unique?  This render is.  However, there is precedent that is similar.
The following are the various kinds of uppercut punches depicting a knockout:

Picture Perfect Uppercut by drewhammond


Reflect upon this: Have you ever personally known a person before they were recognized as ‘Great’? The strange fact is in most cases, you recognized that they had some sort of talent, but in the main were just about like everyone else. Methinks that was the case a long time ago.
This is an artist who was on the verge of being ‘Great’ years ago, and now, in my opinion this is one of his mature pictures that encompasses all of his fully developed artistic techniques as well as visually displaying his delightful sense of humor and astonishing sense of whimsy – All of which now result in a steady series of great and unique pictures.  
What has to be kept in mind is the power of the uniqueness of this POV (Point Of View). Therein resides its greatness. This is visual theater. And the start, or as depicted in this render, the end of something big.

For an artist who has the talent of placing a lot of passion into his pictures, the title he gave this render seems passionless. In our various discussions, I have never asked him what that title meant. Anyway, I’ve taken the poetic license to make the title more descriptive’. Hope Mark doesn’t revoke my poetic license.
I might add that although I modified his title, what won’t modify is my opinion of his artistic genius.

Mark titled it:  ‘Eva KOed’.  I extensively modified that title and it now reads:  ‘Archive mark393: Déjà Vu – Eva KOed By Left Uppercut’.
The following is my rational for this rework of his title:
Starting with: ‘Archive’. Because this picture is going into an ‘Archive Folder’ of the best of his works.  
After that: ‘mark393’.  Which identifies the artist.
Next is: ‘Déjà Vu'. The inside joke in which she has experienced being knocked out before by the same kind of left uppercut punch.
Continuing with the original words of the artist’s title: ‘Eva KOed’.  
Concluding with: ‘By Left Uppercut'.  Which fully describes what happened to her.  

‘Neff said.

Right To The Tit
‘Right To The Tit’.  Render by: lanista8.

‘Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.’  By: Pablo Picasso.

And these two modern day female Gladiatrix are intent on the fistic act of destruction of their rival’s breasts.  Picasso sure got it right – Via words, and lanista8 via the visual.

In the title there is a play on words and it is about the word ‘Right’, in that it has two meanings.
The first is that it is a ‘Right’ glove which is slamming into the breast of the Negress.  
The second is that gloved fist has been aimed ‘Right’ at her tit, and it has landed exactly on target – ‘Right’ where it was aimed at.

Here is the background of this render:
Back in August 6, 2017 I commissioned a good friend of mine Alex, who is from Australia, to create an epic masterwork of a picture to commemorate my achieving 2,150,000 Deviant Art viewer hits.
And it sure was epic – Both erotically as well as pictorially.  I titled it: ‘2,150,000 DA HITS: Naked Knockout – Classic Victory Pose’.  Here is the visual link:   LINK:  

Mature Content

2,150,000 DA HITS:Naked Kayo-Classic Victory Pose by drewhammond
 

In that picture is a big overhead monitor showing a ‘Replay’ of a punch to the swollen breast of the Negress, and blood squirting out from its nipple from the upward pressure of the glove.  Both women had been concentrating on each other’s chests and they have now become swollen with fluids, mainly blood, from the damaged glands and internal tissues.
Alex, who has a DA main Site he calls: ‘lanista8’, did a few preliminary pictures that he and I viewed together in order to come up with a finalized ‘Monitor Replay’.
However, I consider this specific picture as a masterpiece in its own right.  Being intimate it is not epic, but it has its own visual power – The clout (Literally) to show the grim painful reality that some female boxing matches descend into.

The following is from the original writeup of the large complete picture, and in my opinion is still apropos now:

Brutally simple is the fact that boxing is a dangerous sport.  When knocked unconscious a fallen boxer will enter into a coma – Hopefully for a short time.  Sometimes, regrettably for a longer time.  This ominous ‘Fading To Black’ and possible sinking into oblivion has been put to words and music, and are brilliantly expressed with the following stanzas by a recently awarded ‘Nobel Prize Winner For Literature’.  This literary milestone was presented to one: Robert Allen Zimmerman:

‘It's getting dark, too dark to see.
I feel I'm knocking on heaven's door.
That long black cloud is coming down.
I feel I'm knocking on heaven's door.
Knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door.’  Bob Dylan: ‘Knocking On Heaven’s Door’

As concerns milestones – It bears repeating:
There are milestones in life as there are milestones in DA.  Concerning my Main Deviant Art Site, every time an additional 50,000 hits are registered, I consider that a milestone and seek to have a picture created in order to visually depict my hitting such an honor.
As an artist evolves he or she will also face a milestone.  And it can be a daunting one as they trudge toward the unknown fraught with risk – For in the distance is the promise of one of two momentous results: ‘Abject Failure or ‘Sublime Success’.
And that is what this artist has faced, does face, and will face.
And in the most part has created visual successes, some that are epic in their power, or beauty – At times both.

At times together.
My good friend, Alex and I go back a long ways.  He has a DA Main Site he calls: ‘lanista8’.
Alex is from Australia, and both the land and the people are tough.
The land is vast and hard, and the people are equally boundless and hardy – When they have to be.
For the Continent of Australia does not give up its riches easily. To extract its copper, and gold, and iron, and coal (Even its water), is a heated effort; as much of its terrain is desert hot.
While not as hot as the countryside, their people are warm, and when allowed to revert to their better natures, the Aussies are as kind and generous society as any on this planet.  And both their individual and collective sense of humor is a constant delight.
However, there is no getting away from it, the land is harsh, at times unyielding, seeming to be at war with its strong inhabitants who battle daily to subdue it.  Such hardship takes its toll, but it also presents a gift.  For there are those who accept such challenges and in the doing soldier on to develop the tough minds needed to deal with such severity.
And that hardened warrior spirit is reflected in Alex’s artwork.  And it is wide ranging.  Over the years I have commissioned him to do a variety of renders that range from the ‘Epic’, and here is the visual link to an epic example I titled: ‘We Who Are About To Die', which I uploaded way back on September 11, 2010:  LINK:

American Gladiatrix-2000 Years Later by drewhammond


Now, as to the picture which is atop this lengthy tome:
If truth be told, I’m a writer, not an artist, and as such commission works of art.
Half a lifetime ago I once owned and published and sold illustrated novellas and novels about combative women, and a few mixed match ones, and commissioned artists to do the illustrated art work.  All of which I have uploaded on my DA Main Site (drewhammond).
Currently on DA I still commission original art work but just post them, and include a written commentary on what I was attempting to depict as well as the background of the commissioned artist.  With some selected pictures I have them framed and hang them on the walls of my house.  They no longer go into illustrated stories.
In addition, I upload works by artists I admire and do writeups about their work and about them.  With their written permission of course, sent to me via DA Notes.
In this case this work is a commission – One of many that I’ve awarded to Alex.
However, it is the first one that he has done for me commemorating my reaching one of my DA Hits milestones. So in giving credit where credit is due it goes to the artist who runs the DA Site:  ‘lanista8’.
Not as titillation did we choose to display the fighters nearly naked.  Instead we attempted to strip away (Both literally and figuratively) that which attempts to hide the naked brutality of boxing.  At times it can be a bloody business, and that has been shown here.
Only the essentials of boxing are included, the gloves for the fists and the footwear to keep from slipping on the canvas covered floor.  All else is laid bare (Literally) to the brutal baseness of an opponent’s gloved fists.  
Now to other matters of great import:
Over the years, a number of viewers have written to me essentially asking, ‘What the fuck is going on here?’  Or, ‘Why are you depicting women fighting each other?’
Well, the only answer I can give is this:  “You are what you love.  You are not the one who loves you back.”  Which means what you love defines you.  It doesn't matter what others think.  Of great danger is allowing those who love you define you.  It’s wonderful to be loved, but those who love you are human, and as such have human frailties.  If you allow them to define you, then when those frailties come to the fore, and they will – It’s a part of being human, then the hurt can be excruciating.  Sometimes to the point of suicide.
Now to the essential point:  These two women have determined to prove to themselves, and to themselves alone, of if they have what we pilots call: ‘The Right Stuff’.  They know full well that when they enter a boxing ring it is dangerous, and can be lethal on occasion.  Now, I can tell you that flying an airplane can be scary at times – When weather conditions rapidly deteriorate and you can’t see a damn thing, or having to land on a short runway and there is a 40 mph crosswind, or the ultimate terror, which is your engine quits.  It is those, and a myriad of other aerial situations, when you need the right stuff to not panic, to trust your instruments, and yourself.
And what is the ultimate test of a woman’s courage, spirit, body, and endurance?  In a word: War.  And boxing, be it with bare fists or gloves, is fistic war – Almost to ‘In Extremus’.  Actual warfare is both figuratively and literally: ‘At the point of death’, and from the Latin literally means: ‘In the farthest reaches.’
Our current civilization has modified this form of fistic war into a sport.  And ‘Aboveground’ has rules and ‘Belowground’ has none, with ‘Underground’ somewhere in between – Rule wise that is.
But this sport always takes place in some form of ‘Battleground’.  And in the ‘Background’ always lurks that ultimate price of warfare the: Spectre Of Death’.

Boxing is a dangerous sport and the ghost of death is always near.  In fact I had an artist friend of mine make visual that ghost.
Here is the visual link to that picture I titled: ‘Ghost Of Death - Always Near’. Rendering by: MkG2k7: LINK:

Ghost Of Death-Always Near by drewhammond


The end result is these women become fistic warriors, and are willing to take a chance on propelling themselves ever forward in order to emerge victorious in this one on one war.  Knowing full well the fickle compass of fortune, or luck, or whatever, can swing against them and the painful consequences would result in their becoming severely battered about the face and body, bloodied, bruised, ultimately beaten into unconsciousness.  Conscripts who are joined in ferocious battles with outcomes that can end badly as they become casualties of war.
Finally, this bout was concluded seconds ago, a fleeting lifetime ago; but that was then, and this is now.  And in this now it is about inspiration, and my three favorite poet/writers who have inspired me greatly are in turn: Yahweh: the ‘King James Version’.  Will Shakespeare; the greatest playwright of all time.  And Bob Dylan; who just won the ‘Nobel Prize For Literature’.  I quote their stanzas often.
At the beginning of this writeup I started with Bob Dylan, and now with this literal ‘KnockOut’ of a picture will conclude with Shakespeare.  The meaning of the following words are inspirational in their solemn wisdom – That after a multitude of tomorrows all triumph and glory are fleeting:

‘Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools,
The way to dusty death.
Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow.
A poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage.
And then is heard no more.
It is a tale told by an idiot.
Full of sound and fury.
Signifying nothing.’        By: Shakespeare: ‘MacBeth’.

To conclude.  The combative women that Alex portrays are realistic battlers.  A number of the DA artists portray their fighters with slim figures who are visually based upon Vogue Magazine models.  These almost stick like figures would be broken in two in no time by a buffed fighter.  As an aside, there are those who view Leslie’s well fed battlers as corpulent – In a word fat.  Now, the German word: ‘Kummerspeck’ means: ‘Excess Weight’ gained from emotional overeating.  Literally: ‘Grief Bacon’.
In my opinion they are not overweight, instead I see them as: ‘Voluptuous’.
It’s all here – The conscious and the unconscious, the ‘Yin And Yang’ of female boxing made for all to see.
Alex does it with feeling.  Deep feelings about the brutality of what we the aficionados of the sport of female boxing view as: ‘A Terrible Beauty’.
The essence of Yin And Yang is what initially seems to be opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary.  In a physical way, both women are ‘In Deed’ interconnected as well as interdependent, in that both boxers are committed to a confined area called a ‘Boxing Ring’.  There is no escape from the enclosing ropes, in this case chains, which define the physical limits of all four sides. They stand or fall within those surrounding ropes/chains.  Once both have entered into the confining strands of ropes or links of chain, of what is known in boxing terms as the ‘Squared Circle’, there is no deliverance from that painful hell other than in eventual victory or defeat.
All sorts of yin and yang dualities are made manifest within those ropes – Be it light and dark, war and peace, love and hate, but in most instances it is usually triumph and despair.
Depicted here is a female fight to the finish.  And has just been finished.
This modern day female Gladiatrix has just pounded another Gladiatrix to that canvas floor, and the Referee is about to end the match in ten seconds.  Her obligatory countup to ‘Ten’ will be followed by two terminal fight ending words: “You’re Out”.  But this fallen warrior is not only ‘Out’ in her consciousness, she is also sans a victory, and of even greater import – Sans any cash for all the pain of her struggle.
A bit of background concerning Avatars is in order here:
In my DA Main Site (drewhammond), and my DA Group Site (CombativeWomen), I have a number of folders, and as such each folder will have a full size avatar as its logo.
These various folders hold what I consider some of the greatest combative female pictures, illustrations, and photographs in all of Deviant Art.  How many additional renders will be added to these various folders is a question that I just don't know.  I’m getting along in years, and as time goes by I will endeavor to commission additional epic masterpieces of female combative art – All of which, in my vain opinion, I consider will be timeless in their quality; and as such will be introduced into this, as well as my other DA folders.
Now, when selecting an avatar for a DA Main Site folder or a DA Group folder it has to be the best of the best because it will represent all of the other renders in that folder.
That is why I have chosen the following one to represent my DA Main Site folder: 'Archive: DA HITS Folder - DA Main And DA Groups'.

I consider it a masterpiece in representing both the imagination and attention to detail that this artist, Aaron, brings to all of his works.  In this render he has combined the three elements I consider essential in the creation of a timeless work of epic art depicting the brutal world of combative women.
The first is the POV (Point Of View).  It’s as we, the viewers, are sitting at ringside and staring almost straight up at the action in the boxing ring.  He has the eye for angles, and he does this time after time, showing stunning POVs in all sorts of configured angles depicting fistic fury.
The second is Aaron’s ability to capture the instant (And it’s a fleeting instant – To quickly pass into eternity) a solid punch lands – In this case into the body, and one can see, and almost hear the thud of fistic leather sinking into flesh.  In other cases a leather enclosed fist slamming against facial bone –Again the viewer can almost hear the sound, but in the case with punches to the head, it’s usually a smack of leather against fluids, like sweat and blood (Literally) – And unyielding bone.
The third is the realism he brings to the fight scene.  No stick figured models – These.  The women he shows are full figured and well muscled fighters.  These are big powerfully built women, and equally powerfully driven to emerge victorious.  There is this boxing cliché:  ‘Show me a fighter who has a lot of heart, and I’ll show you a fighter who will be physically beaten to a pulp some day’.  Aaron’s fighters don’t quit, and he shows the grim brutality of female combat and the horrific physical toll it can extract from a fighter’s face and body.  Methinks the artist’s favorite color is blood red, because in a lot of his scenes his fighters are covered in crimson.  He makes visual the expression: ‘The Blood Sport Of Fighting’.
Finally, in some battles the beatings are so grotesque outwardly, and yet so courageous inwardly, that what emerges is: ‘A Terrible Beauty Is Born’.  Women who will not quit and will go down swinging – No matter what the cost to body or soul.  
Now as to commissions.  Alex is now open to commissions.
As mentioned before, the render at the top of this tome is my first ‘DA HITS’ commission awarded to him and - And I can not be more pleased.
Not only is he talented, but professional in getting the artwork out.  I am not the easiest person to work with, but have found him quite patient when incorporating my numerous 'Tweaks'.  As a picture progresses I will send a series of back and forth E-Mail attachments and instructions on modifications to the render.
He will endeavor to give the customer exactly what they want, but will take the time to make alternate suggestions for improving the picture.
I recommend him highly.
Here are some examples of previous commissions Alex has done for me:

‘Rough POV Collage: Stella Kayos Lara’: Rendering by: drewhammond and GunnerSteve3D.

Boxer fella (Sports) by Ehsartem

‘I have touched the highest point,
Of all my greatness.
And from that full meridian of my glory,
I haste now to my setting.
I shall fall.
Like a bright exhalation in the evening.
And no man see me more.’   Shakespeare:  ‘Henry VIII’.

As per usual, William Shakespeare got it right concerning a person’s fall from their height of greatness to the depths of defeat and despair.  
Lara has just been punched to the canvas by her better, and in her fall she is likened to a shooting star that burns itself out in a blaze of light – To be seen no more.  Nor shall she rise this evening.  

Here are the two featured boxers:

Archive-Best Of GunnerSteve3D-Lara Character Card by drewhammond


What I have done is take a number of pictures that Steve created and did a cut and paste collage (And a 'Collage' is not a small university - It's an art term), which resulted in the very rough POV at the top of this lengthy tome.

It is my hope that my good friend from England, Steve, who has a DA Site he calls: ‘GunnerSteve3D’ will see this POV and use the scene as inspiration to create an entirely new picture showing Stella towering over the unconscious Lara, as the female Referee counts her out to make it all official that Stella has won the fight via a pure knockout.  

Even after Steve reviews this POV and finds that he doesn’t have the time, nor the inclination nor the need to do a commission in order to create a ‘Redux’ of this collage, I will still place all the pertinent information of him as a working artist into this writeup and list his DA Main Site, the avatar of his logo to his DA website, as well as his Patreon Site, and his blog website.  

This collage has an extensive history:
The initial inspiration for this collage is a render that GunnerSteve3D uploaded onto his DA Main Site back on April 26, 2014.  It depicts Stella looking down at an opponent she has just pounded to the canvas.  He titled it: ‘Fighter’.  
I consider it one of the finest, most stunning POV (Point Of View) renders in all combative women art. Here is the visual link to that picture:  LINK:

Fighter by GunnerSteve3D


The downed boxer in the collage is from a picture that Steve uploaded onto his DA Site back in May 18, 2015, and titled it: ‘Lara Vs Venus #40’.  It shows Lara flat on her back looking up at Venus who has just knocked her to the canvas.  As a complete picture is too is a stunning POV.  Here is the visual link to that render:  LINK:

Lara Vs Venus #40 by GunnerSteve3D

From that picture the bottom part of the floored Lara was extracted and placed at the bottom edge of the collage.  

The image in the HBO giant television monitor has been extracted from a picture of Stella knocking out Lara with a straight right to the jaw.  It was uploaded onto Steve’s website on May 25, 2014, and he titled it: ‘Lara #353’: Here is the visual link to that picture:

The female Referee for the collage was extracted from a picture I commissioned from my good English friend, Merlin, whose DA Main Site he calls: ‘MerlinKing’; and I titled it: ‘2,200,000 DA HITS: Ultimate Humiliation KO Win’. Render by: MerlinKing. Here is the visual link to that picture: LINK:

2,200,000 DA HITS:Ultimate Humiliation KO Win by drewhammond


So there you have it.  A lot of research as well as a lot of cutting and pasting were put into this rough POV.
I hope all the effort pays off in a finished picture that is both EPIC and a masterwork.

To that end I have presented it to all the DA artists who portray combative women in all forms of combat and are depicted in each artist’s personal style.    

So here’s the deal:
What I am offering is a potential opportunity to some DA artist who depicts ‘Combative Women’ in pictures, and who will see this POV and say to their self that here is an opportunity for them to create something new and unique in the combative female genre.  And what a great way to make a name for them self.        
Well, here it is.  My gift to whomever.  

Here is the problem:
Is there precedent, in a pictorial sense, to view what is in my ‘Mind’s Eye’.  
To my chagrin it is a resounding ‘Yes’.  

There have been a number of superb renders which depict a boxer knocked out, which is the classic flat on her back, both arms outstretched with gloves or bare fists resting on the canvas, face staring upwards at the rafters – Seeing nothingness.
Often with the Victrix standing in triumph close by savoring her literal knockout of a win.  
Here is a great example that comes close to what is in my mind’s eye.  I titled it: 'Nude KnockOut – Literally’.  By: Chris Engler'.  
This is the visual link to that stunning render:  LINK:

Nude KnockOut - Literally by drewhammond


Now, the question arises on if there is precedent of an artist taking a previous uploaded POV and using it as a guide to create a new, and improved, picture.
Is there ever! Approximately half of the POVs I have uploaded have been converted to completed images.

Here is one exceptional example of what I have exactly in mind.  A POV of a boxer landing flat on her back and the winner looking down at her.  This is the initial POV I titled: ‘POV: Sudden Impact – In Boxing A Loser Can Be A Winner In An Instant’. POV Render by:  Drew Hammond.

Now, onto a bit of background of the artist whose work is depicted at the top of this lengthy tome:
Steve has opened up a ‘Patreon’ website.  I consider him as one of the finest artists in all DA when it comes to depicting combative women.  However, this newly established website offers more.
Much more.
To that end, or to be more accurate, to a new beginning, I want to help spread the word that he may now have the time, and inclination to do commissions again, as well as establishing a full blown Patreon Website in which he is offering an increasing number of original pictures of all sort of imaginative images – Ranging from my favorites that he does, which are combative women, to the opposite side of the artistic spectrum which are visions of erotic beauties that can only come out of such an imaginative mind, of whom I consider an artistic genius.      
Here is the link to Steve's Patreon Website:  LINK: www.patreon.com/gunnersteve3d
And here is the introduction to his Patreon Website:
 
'Welcome!
I will be creating exclusive renders just for you of all my favorite models Lara, Natasha, Lilly and so on
Most will be adults only (you have been warned).
You might know me from DA (Deviant Art) as I have been posting thousands of renders there for years.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could maybe support me a little by becoming a patron of my Patreon Site.
I do use the Charge Up Front feature.

Steve is English, and being English reflects in his art work the rich artistic history of that noble race of island people.  And in the doing, makes visual the unique inner vision deep inside his vast soul to bring forth into the light of day a superb talent to pictorially present all that is noble in action and spirit in combative women.  All sorts of fighters who are willing to literally lay bare their bodies in order to display their deep courage to push themselves to the limit – And beyond.  A willingness to accept time after time a undue amount of horrific pain in order to present an unrelenting desire to not only seek victory and glory, but to reveal their very inner souls in their quest to not only win, but to prevail.

Finally, Steve does commissions when he has the time.  Here is one he did for me, and it features Stella.  This is the visual link, and I titled it: ‘950,000 DA HITS: The Art Of Creation’: LINK:

I have decided to set up an ‘Archive’ featuring a folder on my DA Main Site titled: ‘Best Of GunnerSteve3D – DA Site Folder‘.
I’ve talked to Steve about this and he gave me his okay to proceed with this.  To this end I will choose what I consider his best works and upload them onto this newly created folder.
And this is one of them.  

In my DA Main Site: ‘drewhammond’ I have a number of folders, and as such each folder will have a full size avatar as its logo.
This folder will hold what I consider some of the greatest combative female illustrations in all of Deviant Art. How many will be added to this Best Of GunnerSteve3D collection, I just don't know.  As time goes by there will be additional masterpieces he has created for others, as well as me – All of which I consider will be timeless in their quality; and as such will be introduced into this folder.
When selecting an avatar for a group folder it has to be the best of the best because it will represent all of the other renders in that folder.

That is why I have chosen this one, as I consider it a masterpiece in representing both the imagination and attention to detail that Steve brings to all of his works.
This astonishing picture is a combination of a stunning beauty as well as the exuberance she shows in her face – The pure joy of knowing that she has just won a tough fight against a worthy opponent.
And that sealed the deal on my choosing this render as the avatar.
GunnerSteve3D titled this superb work of art: ‘Lara Versus Venus Number 43’.  Steve did a series of 44 panels detailing a complete ‘Fight To The Finish’, between Venus Williams and Lara Croft from the very beginning to the knockout of an ending, and this is the 43rd panel.  For this picture to fit into my ‘Best Of’ Avatar, I had to completely change his title to make it more descriptive.  It is now titled:  ‘Avatar: Best Of GunnerSteve3D – DA Site Folder’.  The following is my reasoning concerning this change.
Starting with: ‘Avatar’. Because that is what it has become.
Concluding with: ‘Best Of GunnerSteve3D – DA Site Folder’.  Because it is.
Now, there are times when I’ll modify or change one of this artist’s titles, and this is one of those times.
Although I changed this artist’s title, what I won’t change is my admiration of Steve’s artistic genius.
And that is all I'm about to say on this subject.

Steve also has a blog website.  Here is the link to that site:  LINK: gunnersteve3d.blogspot.co.uk/

Steve, the artist, who has a DA Main Site he calls: ‘GunnerSteve3D’, doesn’t do many mixed match boxing pictures.  But the ones he does do are superb.  The above is a case in point.

Moving on:
There are milestones in life as there are milestones in DA.  Concerning my Main Deviant Art Site, every time an additional 50,000 hits are registered, I consider that a milestone and seek to have a picture created in order to visually depict my hitting such an honor.
As an artist evolves he or she will also face a milestone.  And it can be a daunting one as they trudge toward the unknown fraught with risk – For in the distance is the promise of one of two momentous results: Failure or Success.
And that is what Steve, this artist faced.  He has a DA Site he calls: ‘GunnerSteve3D’ and I consider him one of the finest artists in all DA in depicting combative women.  I wanted the best so I went to the best to create this DA HITS milestone.  

And we’ve done this before.

I have decided to establish in my Main DA Site: ‘drewhammond’, an 'Archive' in which I will place all of my pictures of what I consider the best art works of a celebrity fighting someone, or various celebrities fighting each other.
They can range from 'Superstars', who are female singers and actresses, to famous athletes, who are in the main - Boxers.
The superstar female singers and rappers are the most fun to watch.  Because of their colossal egos they often have a 'Beef' with another singer.  It can be silly and petty to downright nasty with a lot of name calling.  What I, and a number of DA artists have done is turn their arguments with each other into fistic confrontations - Usually with boxing gloves or fists.

When it comes to ‘Celebrity Fights’ there are no two combative women who are more famous than these two: ‘Street Fighters’.
Starting with the Chinese street fighter: Chun-Li.
Here is the visual link to one of the finest representations of her in all DA art.  This image was created by Aaron, who has a DA website he calls: 'aaaninja'.  Aaron titled this superb render:  'Chun-Li Kicks High', when he uploaded it onto his DA Main Site on March 4, 2015.

Moving on to the artist who created this epic masterwork at the top of this lengthy tome:
The following is from his DA Main Site ‘Artists Comments; section when he uploaded this epic masterwork on March 26, 2008.
Title: ‘Chun Li Versus Cammy’: “An idea that I had there for some time: These two girls in a final match of full contact with groin protectors and without any limit of rounds.”

There were a number of DA viewers who also had something to say about this picture and their thoughts are from the artist’s DA ‘Viewers Comments’ section:

From:  Tetsuo72 – March 26, 2008:  “Round 25?  
Ouch!
They'll be feeling that in the morning I'm sure!
Nice pic!”

Reply from: fab1rr – March 29, 2008:  “For these girls a fight like this can happen any hour!
Thanks!”

From:  Green-Legend – March 27, 2008:  “Yikes ...  Screw the seventh inning stretch... These girls are going WAAAAAAAAYYYYYY into overtime!
Pass the coffee and the bandaids... Stat!
Oh, btw, nifty idea with giving them the special thongs to represent their origins. Very fashionable
Oops, meant their protectors... Not thongs. Sorry.”

Reply from: fab1rr – March 29, 2008: “They were into 13 rounds besides the traditional 12!
The number 13 mean luck for some and bad luck for others!
Thanks for the fav!”

From:  pixilaira – March 27, 2008:  “You'd wonder if they really do hate each other the way they keep ending in the same place 'by chance'. Awesomely done.  Another one for my faves.
If the world stresses you out stress out the world with comedy. If that doesn't work, well then hire a sexy sword wielding busty catgirl French maid and a busty ninja schoolgirl catgirl to handle it.”

Reply from:  fab1rr – March 29, 2008:  “Characters of video games are always looking for reasons for us to struggle among them!  And we liked this!”

From: arenafighter – March 28, 2008:  “Awesome Job!  Think you might try doing one with Belle from Beauty & Beast facing Alice from Alice in Wonderland in a Bikini version of that Fight?
Just asking?”

Reply from:  fab1rr –March Mar 29, 2008
I like your suggestions!  I have many drawings that I did along the years. I scanned almost all and now I am coloring some, but I am thinking about one or two of your ideas for a new drawing.”

Reply from: arenafighter – March 29, 2008:  “Thanks.  If it's not Too out of line, think you might try a Topless or Bikini Clad Jessica Rabbit versus Holli Would Match too? Just asking?”

From: nitesprite2 – April 6, 2008:  “I really like it!..
But...
I'm just saying what would make this perfect for me, you understand.
I know anyone would look a state after 25 rounds, but Chun-Li still looks pretty good.  
I'd have rather than Cammy, who was still fairly pretty too.  Her face is so bruised you can't really see it any more. I'd rather that the idea that she'd taken a thrashing was more suggested by a look of desperation on her face.
But as I say, that's just me.”

Reply from: fab1rr – April 6, 2008:  “My idea was to do a typical scene of the end of the fights in video game.
For longer and harder than has been the fight, the winner appears always well and euphoric and the loser appears exhausted in her health and stamina.
I also thought about more blood and bruises, but I preferred not to brutalize, because the characters are game heroines.
Thanks for the commentary.”

The artist titled this superb work of art: ‘Chun Li Versus Cammy’. Invoking my Artistic License I have taken it upon myself to modify his title to make it more descriptive:  ‘Archive Celebrity Fights: Chun-Li Kayos Cammy’.  This modified title depicts what has just happened.  The following is my rational for this change:
Starting with: 'Archive'.  This picture is going into an archive consisting of celebrity fights.
Next is: Celebrity Fights'.  The name of the archive this render is going into.
Concluding with: 'Chun-Li Kayos Cammy'.  This is a knockout of a POV (Point Of View).
To be added, there are times when I’ll modify the title of one of this artist’s paintings, and this is one of those times. But what I won’t modify is my opinion of his artistic genius.

The artist who created this astonishing render has a ‘DA Site’ he calls: ‘fab1rr’. He lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Lucky guy, he. All he needs to do is go to the beach for inspiration. We have had a long, and strong, relationship, and as such early on he gave me written permission to upload any of his multitudes of paintings and illustrations as well as alter any of his titles.

This is the full title as the DA title block doesn't have enough slots for all the words.

I’m not that much into ‘Toons’, be they comic strips, comic books, or movie cartoons.  My understanding is the term: ‘Toon’ is derived from the 1988 movie: ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’.  It commonly refers to distinguish characters who appear in cartoons from those who are regular humans.

However, the artist Mark, has a profound sense of whimsy, and in this picture of ‘Toons’, has made it visual by showing one of the boxers who has been punched cross-eyed.  

As to the thoughts of the artist, here is the following from Mark’s DA Main Site ‘Artists Comments’ section when he uploaded it onto his site on June 28, 2014:

Title:  ‘Anime Match 5’:  “Mr. Sake: Should I finish her?
Ms. Gina: Mammmma miaaaah...
Ref. :Five...”

Here is a listing of the participants in this match:
The male toon boxer: Mr. Sake Animomoto (Japan).
The female toon boxer: Ms. Gina Animartini (Italy).
The toon Referee: Mrs. Vodka Animoscowskaya (Russia)

In addition, the following additional comments are by the artist, Mark:
“Make your bets, ladies and gents!
P.S. Aw, I forgot to tell you this match is dedicated to my Japanese friend: Y.U.
He is married to the Italian: Tsokoletta A.C.
P.P.S. All four figures in the ring are Aiko4.”

There were others who also had something to say about this render and they were placed in the artist’s DA ‘Viewers Comments’ section:

From: MasterSaruwatari – June 28, 2014:  “LOL”.

From: bookwormsteve – June 28, 2014:  “Hmm not good.  She’s losing.”

From: kaesan – June 28, 2014:  “Go Sake!”

From:  menolothar – June 30, 2014:  “She's out on her feet. Attsa very nice!!”

I have come to find that this artist, Mark, is a great artist with an inventive mind and a wonderful sense of humor, that is only exceeded by his sense of whimsy – And that is ‘In Deed’ a rare gift from the Greek Muses.  Currently most of his works that I have uploaded are in my DA Group Site (CombativeWomen) and located in that Group's folder titled: 'Avatar: Mixed Matches Folder – CombativeWomen Group’.

However, this original picture by ‘mark393’ has not been uploaded into that Group’s Folder.  I am now including it in my DA Site for the first time.    
As such I am uploading those renders from both the Group as well as my Main Site and placing them in an archive folder in my DA Main Site into a folder I have titled: 'Avatar: Best Of mark393 Folder'.

Moving on:
Now, this picture has a history:
It was uploaded to Mark’s DA Main Site on June 28, 2014.  He calls that site: ‘mark393’.

The question then can arise, is their precedent of a boxer being knocked out, but still standing – At least for a moment before she drops to the canvas and is counted out?.
Is there ever!  
The following are some examples.  Starting with what I consider as one of the finest knockout POV renders of all time.  And is a particular favorite of mine.

Close Quarters Pose:A KnockOut Of A Punch-Redux by drewhammond


Reflect upon this: Have you ever personally known a person before they were recognized as ‘Great’? The strange fact is in most cases, you recognized that they had some sort of talent, but in the main were just about like everyone else. Methinks that was the case a long time ago.
This is an artist who was on the verge of being ‘Great’ years ago, and now, in my opinion this is one of his mature pictures that encompasses all of his fully developed artistic techniques as well as visually displaying his delightful sense of humor and astonishing sense of whimsy – All of which now result in a steady series of great and unique pictures.  
What has to be kept in mind is the power of the uniqueness of this POV (Point Of View). Therein resides its greatness. This is visual theater. And the start, or as depicted in this render, the end of something big.

For an artist who has the talent of placing a lot of passion into his pictures, the title he gave the render at the top of this lengthy tome seems passionless.  In our various discussions, I have never asked him what that title meant. Anyway, I’ve taken the poetic license to make the title more descriptive’. Hope Mark doesn’t revoke my poetic license.
I might add that although I completely changed his title, what I won’t change is my opinion of his artistic genius.

Mark titled it:  ‘Anime Match 5’.  I changed that title to: ‘Archive mark393: MMB Toon Boxing – Gina Knocked KO Cross-Eyed’.
The following is my rational for this rework:
Starting with: ‘Archive’. Because this picture is going into an ‘Archive Folder’ of the best of his works.  
After that: ‘mark393’.  Which identifies the artist.
Next is: ‘MMB', which are the initials for 'Mixed Match Boxing'.  Because it is.
Continuing with: 'Toon Boxing', because that is the style the artist chose to portray the scene.  
Concluding with: ‘Gina Knocked KO Cross-Eyed'.  And that is what happened. Because 'The Eyes' have it.  They depict her standing knockout.  

‘Neff said.

Blow By Blow:Left To Face And Right To The Body
‘Blow By Blow: Left To The Face And Right To The Body’.  Render by: Fightinglisa And Polkaindepolder.  (15)
This is the full title as the DA title block doesn't have enough slots for all the words.

‘He either fears his fate too much,
Or his desserts are small.
Who dares not put it to the touch,
To win or lose it all.’  

From: ‘My Dear And Only Love’.  By: James Graham, Marquis of Montrose.

To be a bit biblical, this is a couple of punches ‘In The Beginning’ of a ‘Fight To The Finish’ fistic boxing match.
Each is willing ‘To win or lose it all’.    
As such, this is one of a series of pictures that depicts a brutal fistfighting boxing match between Liz, the Blonde, and Lisa, the Redhead.  They are wearing thin leather MMA type gloves that are lightly padded.  Both of those gloves and the fighters are mean, and they both mean to hurt each other – Bad.    

I titled it: ‘Blow By Blow: Left To The Face And Right To The Body’.
The title that was given to this superb render by Lisa, whose DA Main Site she calls: ‘Fightinglisa’, was simply: ‘Blow By Blow’.
What follows is my reasoning for the modification of the artist’s original title:
Starting with her original title: ‘Blow By Blow’.
Concluding with describing the targets that the fists were simultaneously striking: ‘Left To The Face’, in this blow a punch hitting the eye; and ‘Right To The Body’, and this punch hitting a breast.  
Now there are times when I’ll modify or change one of Lisa’s titles, and this is one of those times.  But what I won’t modify is my opinion of the genius of her multiple talents, as well as her artist friend: Polkaindepolder
And that is all I’m going to say on that subject at this time.

The following is from her DA Site ‘Artists Comments’ section when she uploaded it on November 22, 2016:

Title:  'Blow By Blow’:  “I followed through with my right fist smacking solidly into her left breast. My knuckles smashed her glands. She cried out in pain but countered with her left fist once again digging into my right eye. Yes, this bitch was strong. She knew how to throw a punch and how to take one. Well so did I. This was going to be a long hard fight.”

Lisa has quite a following, and the back and forth commenting from a number of her ardent admirers makes for an interesting read.
And read.
And read.
At times almost to: ‘Ad Nauseam’.
However, the plus to all this is the design of the Deviant Arts: ‘Viewers Comments’ section facilitates such exchanges.  The following are from her ‘Blow By Blow’ viewers comments section of this picture:

From: HellcatLaura – November 22, 2016:  “Or a short hard fight.”
 
Reply from:  Fightinglisa – November 22, 2016:  “Hope you are cheering for me honey.”

Reply from: HellcatLaura – November 22, 2016:  “Of course I am.”

From:  redmanxthered – November 23, 2016:  “Well it’s certainly a hard fight!
Great images from Polka and wonderful narrative by Lisa!”

Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 23, 2016:  “Thank you Glenn. Hope you are enjoying it.”

From: This-Cat-Has-Claws – November 23, 2016:  “She's not hun...  Secretly she wants to see me drop you. She already loved my knee shot to your pussy and now she wants me to make you bleed. HellcatLaura wants to be with the better woman honey...  And that's not YOU...  Lucky for you I don't want your girl...  I have one of my own.”

Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 23, 2016:  “Wouldn't be so sure about that, babe. After I nailed you with those shots to the belly and jaw she was cheering for me to hit you again.”

From:  Shanna1600 – November 22, 2016:  “Loving the action!  (Polka has done good by both of you!).
It's fearsome and brutal and vivid and savage ... In other words, just the way that Liz likes it!!!!
I give Fightinglisa credit for hanging in there up to this point, and going fist-to-fist with one of the best in the business.
But This-Cat-Has-Claws has this wonderful way of wearing down her opponents over the course of the fight ...  And no one can beat her when it comes to sheer will!”

Reply from:  Fightinglisa – November 22, 2016:  “So far we are trading punches. Yes Polka did a great job with the action.”

From:  kamijavi – November 22, 2016:  “Woah!  They are exchanging punches like crazy.  Go girls, do your best.”

Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 22, 2016: “We are going to pound away at each other.”

Reply from: kamijavi – November 23, 2016:  “Yay!  I can't get enough of this fight.”

From: TrentHarlow – November 22, 2016:  “This-Cat-Has-Claws just nailed her!  Keep it up!!
Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Buddha.”

Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 22, 2016:  “I guess you don't see my knuckles in her tit, honey.”

Reply from: TrentHarlow – November 22, 2016:  “I did, and I was a little jealous.”

From: Sacron22 – November 22, 2016:  The text is very good – Hard hitting and fast.”
 
Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 22, 2016:  “Thank you for the compliment. I have Polkaindepolder, who is doing excellent illustrations to work with.”

From: onek1995 – November 22, 2016:  “Here it is!  Two warriors having at it.  Give and take.  No quarter given or taken.  Great, great action.  Now is the time for Liz to ramp up the pressure.”

Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 22, 2016:  “You are right about that. Neither of us will ask for or expect any mercy in this fight. She's not the only one that can ramp things up, honey.”

Reply from:  onek1995 – November 22, 2016:  “I hope so!  This is epic so far.......”

From: gbox12 – November 22, 2016:  “That's the spirit ladies. Bust open the noses and split open the tits. Time to get the juices flowing. The crowd is loving it.”

Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 23, 2016:  “Oh! I am going to bust her wide open.”

From:  This-Cat-Has-Claws – November 23, 2016:  “One or two more like that should crush your eye socket...  Maybe I'll pluck out your eye, have it gold plated, mounted on a little wooden plank.”

Reply from:  Fightinglisa –November 23, 2016:  “One or two more shots like that to your tit, bitch, and you won't be able to use your left fist. You'll need your left hand to keep your left breast off the floor.”

From:  Shanna1600 – November 23, 2016:  “You have a flair for trash-talk, hon....  But I have to admit that this one had me laughing out loud.  A gold-plated, mounted eye???”
   
From: rapidroystockcarboy – November 23, 2016:  “That's it liz.  Take the fight to her.  Show her why you’re the toughest fighter on all of DA.  Kill her if you have to.”

Reply from:  Fightinglisa – November 24, 2016:  “Let's see how tough she looks on the floor shall we.”

Reply from: rapidroystockcarboy – November 29, 2016:  “Lisa, are you trying to tell me that you could beat ‘Liz Claws’ in a fight of this nature?  She has lethal fists and knows how to use them to her advantage.  No offence, but I’ve never even heard of you until now.  I don’t mean any disrespect, but you are going against the very best there is on DA and I personally don’t think you have a hope in hell of beating her.  That being said, I do hope to see more of you in the future.”

Reply from:  Fightinglisa – November 29, 2016:  “I go into every fight thinking I will win but knowing I could lose. I am not well known on DA, as I am the new girl in town; but I am known on other sites. She might beat me but as I have said she is going to know she has been in a fight.”

From:  mername – November 25, 2016:  “Two strong, determined women out to destroy each other for the fun of it. Who will be left standing?”

Reply from: Fightinglisa – November 25, 2016:  “I will give you a hint. Always bet on Red!”

Reply from: R-Mageddon – November 25, 2016:  “It works only with ‘Redhead Vs Brunette’ matches.   Blondes are unpredictable.”

Reply from: Fightinglisa - November 25, 2016: "I thought you were on my side R-Mageddon.:
 
Reply from: R-Mageddon - November 5, 2016: "I am on your side here. No doubt!
I just know one Blondie..."
 
Reply from: Fightinglisa - November 25, 2016:  "Thank you. I definitely need all the support I can get in this fight."
 
From: jerrie46 - November 26, 2016:  "Wow! Pummeling each other! Who will drop first? Great fight!"

Reply from: Fightinglisa - November 27, 2016:  "That is a good question, honey. We will have to see."
 
From:  WarriorKing1 – June 30, 2017:  “Trading shot for shot. What a brawl.”

Reply from:  Fightinglisa – July 1, 2017:  “We were both going for the knock out. Wish we could have finished it.”

Concerning this series of pictures with commentary, the following is what Lisa stated when this specific upcoming fight was announced:  

“I am going to enjoy working with my friends :iconthis-cat-has-claws: and :iconpolkaindepolder:.  And I want to thank Liz for stepping into the ring with me and letting me use her body for a punching bag; and Polka for his wonderful illustrations. Kiss.”

As a personal aside:
It's now up to the original artist who started this brilliant and erotic fistfight to finish it pictorially.  That is if Polkaindepolder has the time and inclination to complete this epic combative women project.

As an aside:
There was one comment from a: UndercityIV - December14, 2016.  Someone who describes themselves as a: ‘A  Professional General Artist’, who asked: “So you did these or someone else did them?”

There was no reply from Lisa.

However, ‘UndercityiV’ added: “If I am to remain defeated forever, then I surrender and will no longer be an artist. For I have been harmed.  No one has tried fighting on my behalf.  With no where else to go to show off my potential, I don't exist anymore...  Only what I have left behind.”

The horror is what this artist, and I have no idea of if it was a woman or man, left behind on DA is now long gone.  The DA website has since been deactivated.
Somehow, throughout my long life, I have been so blessed in having Yahweh guiding me (Although there were times when I was kicking and screaming in rebellion), that l have never known the despair of a dedicated artist or writer whose creations have been unappreciated, or worse still, unwanted. Rejected.
Rejection is the norm where I live.  My house is in the San Fernando Valley, a massive suburb of Los Angeles.  Within Los Angeles is the enclave of Hollywood.  Having a BS (A most apt expression for me) degree in Finance from UCLA, I am a numbers man.  And the Hollywood numbers of those who arrive there to get into the film or television acting portion of the industry are daunting.  I estimate that about 95 % never make a living at it and eventually have to quit, and seek some other form of employment.
When you are auditioned for a part and are rejected for that part, all of you, your body, face, and personality are rejected.  It is rejection: ‘In Total’.      
As one can imagine the suicide rate is rather large here, and so common that it is rarely even reported in any of the media.  
Imagine having to return home and face your parents and having to admit to them, and childhood friends, that you have failed in achieving your greatest desire.  
You quit.  And as such are: ‘A Quitter’.  There are those who can not take the looks of pity from those they know well and who are close to them – And choose to end their earthly existence.

In Deviant Art there is precedent – Though hopefully not with such dire consequences.
DA accounts are voluntarily deactivated by the websiters.

One example is:  ‘Ringhot’.  
An astonishing artist who had a unique artistic perception of combative women art; suddenly, and without any forewarning explanation, yanked both his website and all of his superb pictures from DA.  Now, it is his website and the pictures he created are those he legally and personally can do with what he wants – Including their total destruction.  However, I personally feel they do no not have a moral right to their casting such superb works of art into the trashbin of oblivion.  To that end I asked, and received the assistance from likeminded associates who felt the same way that I did, and together we have resurrected a number of the ‘Ringhot’ renders.  
Here is the visual link to one of those resurrected renders that I titled: ‘Archive Restored Ringhot: You’re Going Down Bitch – Fistic KO’.  Render by: Ringhot: LINK:

There is more:
A few years ago a very talented artist, Jon Tenny, left Deviant Art, for a variety of reasons, none of which I need go into. When he still had a DA Site, which he called: ‘juxvma542’, from it (with his written e-mail permission) I had uploaded a number of his renderings under the auspices of my DA Group Site called: ‘CombativeWomen’. Within that DA Group is a folder titled: ‘Mixed Matches’, and this render was originally uploaded there on September 29, 2010.
Here is the link to that original picture upload: LINK: drewhammond.deviantart.com/art…
As he was preparing to close his DA Site I wrote to him:
“Jon, I have started a new series of renderings I consider ‘Masterpieces’ which are not part of my ‘Gallery Of Combative Women’. They will be uploaded one per week and the maximum by any one artist was going to be three. Or so I thought until you added to your ‘DA Site’ a series of bare fisted mixed match renderings that are staggering in their visual and emotional impact. Therefore, you have made me break all the rules. Consequently, a fifth and final rendering has been added to this series, done by you, and here it is. Because I do not own these images, I need your written permission, via ‘DA Notes’, to display all of your works on my ‘DA Gallery Site’.”
Which he did.

Shortly afterward both he and his DA Site: ‘juxvma542’ were gone.
Over the years I, and some DA viewers of Jon’s artwork, have sought out, found, and resurrected a number of his works.
Here is an example of the quality of his work.  This visual link I titled:'Archive JON MMB: Bloody Fight – The KnockOut Blow’.  Rendering by: JON.  MMB = Mixed Match Boxing:  LINK:

Moving on:
During one of these lengthy verbal tirades the artist, Polkaindepolder, made the following comment:  
From:  Polkaindepolder – November 18, 2016:  “My goodness Lizzie!  Have you ever been this bitchy?
Love you more with every bitching word coming from your mouth.
And that’s a lot these days!”

Reply from: Fightinglisa - December 6, 2016:  "I have fought a lot of tough women. Two of them  and  are here in the gym cheering for me.  
She is one of the toughest but not the toughest I have ever fought.
Great job illustrating the fight. :Kiss"

Because it’s so apropos, I’ll end with Polka having the last words.  

Oh yes, speaking of Polka, when I first blundered into Fightinglisa’s DA Main gallery I immediately recognized the superb artistic style of Polka, who is one of the finest purveyors of combative women art in all of DA, whose own DA gallery he calls: ‘Polkaindepolder'.
When I saw that first picture on Lisa’s website I thought Polka had created a stunning picture, and what is especially stunning is that blow to the eye of the Blonde fistfighter.
Seeing that picture, and reading its description propelled me to immediately fire off a DA Note to Lisa and stated the following:

“Lisa, I just reviewed a number of your stories and you are an excellent writer. But that is not what I want to ask you about. You've had Polkaindepolder do a number of pictures for you and some of them are superb. Since they were either commissioned by you, or given to you by him, as far as DA is concerned you now own the rights to them. As such, I would like your permission (Which can be sent via DA Notes) to use some of those renders in my DA Site. I will link you, and your site in my extensive write-ups depicting the boxing scene, and let the DA viewers know that it is with your permission that I am using the pictures. And I will make sure that Polkaindepolder will get full credit as the artist. I get approximately 1,000 DA Hits a day, and that will be a lot of eyeballs seeing the picture and viewing the link back to your DA Site. And because of your talent, they will read your stories. Thank you in advance - With all due respect and admiration, Drew.”

Here is her quick reply via DA Notes:
Re: From Drew - A Request.
From: Fightinglisa:
To drewhammond:  
“Drew, thank you for the compliment. I have been a member of DA for 4 years but have only really been active for about a year. Polka gave the pictures to me shortly after I became active. He thought Liz (ThisCatHasClaws) and I would be good opponents and he gave them to me so I could post them on my page.
I would be happy to give my permission as long as you also mention Liz in your write up along with me and Polkaindepolder.
I admire your work and watch your page for your latest post.
Thank you again.
Lisa.”

To which I readily agreed.
In this superb render of a fistfight between women in a boxing ring during the after hours of a closed boxing gym, there is precedent.  In fact a long pictorial history of these ‘Private Boxing Matches’ between female rivals who had some issues that needed to be decided – Via their fists.  Be they boxing glove enclosed or bare.
In fact, in these female underground ‘Fight To The Finish’ boxing matches, there have been a number of these artworks that are considered as classics and can be found on both my DA Main and Group Sites.  

Now to comply with Lisa’s request that I give artistic credit, where credit is due – Both to Lisa, and Polkaindepolder:
Starting with Lisa:
She’s an American whose primary artistic ‘Acts Of Creation’ are stories about physically combative women.  And she’s a damn fine writer.
In addition she likes to pictorially place herself in fights with other women, and because of her recognized writing talent by artists who are as equally talented as she, they create pictures for her that she can display on her DA Main Site she calls: ‘Fightinglisa’.
A number of them have already been uploaded in previous writeups.
There are times when all of these various talents of writing and picture creation are conjoined and the visual results are displayed throughout this writeup.  This uniting of diverse talents has a name and it is called:  ‘Symbiosis’.  By definition symbiosis is a noun, and it means:  ‘Either a close, or distant, long-term association between organisms of different species.  This association or relationship, is between two or more living organisms, where at least one receives some sort of benefit from the other.  Also, a mutually beneficial relationship between different people or groups.’

As an aside, when the definition speaks of: ‘Association between organisms of different species’, I view that as a collaboration between two creative species, in this case writer and artist.
The other two creative species of this symbiosis are: Liz, whose DA Site is: 'This-Cat-Has-Claws' and Polka, whose site is: 'Polkaindepolder'.
Liz, who is from Canada, has a great sense of humor (Or as she, a Canadian, would spell it: 'Humour') and is a fine writer of combative women tomes.
Here is the link to her DA Main Site:  LINK: this-cat-has-claws.deviantart.…
As such, she likes to mix it up with other fighting women and wants to see the action visually.  That is when she goes to an artist whose artistic talent is the equal of her prose - And her humour.

Ending with Polkaindepolder:
To give my viewers a glimpse into Polka's bizarre type of humor, here is a sample from his DA Journal:  "Life took a turn, I didn’t expect and I kinda lost control over the steering wheel."

Right!
That is an example of his light side.  However it is matched by his dark side, and that darkness is visually shown in a number of his artworks.  They are brutal – Literally; and often the coloring is dark – Also Literally.  That is the case with the superb picture at the top of this tome.  Here is the visual link to the dark coloration of the original 'Blow By Blow' render:  LINK:

So who are these two modern day female Gladiatrix?  Seems their good friend, Polkaindepolder has made both of them visible and listed all of their specifications in one picture, which he titled: ‘Lisa Versus Liz – Tale Of The Tape’, which he uploaded on November 12, 2016.
Here is the visual link to that render:  LINK:

In The Beginning:Lisa Versus Liz-Tale Of The Tape by drewhammond


Now compare it with the much more bright coloration at the top of this writeup.  Again, using my artistic license I employed by Microsoft 2010 Office Manager Application to ‘Auto Correct’ the dark into light.

I fully understand Polka’s reasoning of giving a dark hue to a number of his superb renders.  And I both like and admire their darkness.  However, I just feel that such great works should be viewed in a different light – Again literally.  In this case the DA viewer can see ‘Both Sides now’, and make their own choice.  And isn’t that what freedom is basically about:  The freedom to choose.  

In conclusion, here is the link to Polka’s DA Site: www.deviantart.com/polkaindepo…
In addition, here is the visual link to the avatar of the logo of Polka's DA Site: LINK: :iconpolkaindepolder:
Both are worth a DA visit.

Finally I have recently faced up to the frustrating fact that there are some artists in DA who have such an artistic talent, as well as a vest depth of perception about the vast range of the Yin and Yang of Combative Women; and yet they drive me crazy because for some inscrutable reason they walk away from their DA main Sites, and in the doing remove most, or all, of their superb renders as well as their personal DA 'Artists Comments' of what they were trying to visually portray.
One such example is a German artist, Chris Engler, who still has a reduced DA Main site he calls: 'MB08'.  One of the few images I have found is the following visual link to a profound picture that I titled: ‘Naked Fistfight: About To Drop The Hammer Blow’.  By: Chris Engler – ‘MB08’:
Here is the visual link to that female fistfighting render:  LINK:

Naked Fistfighters:About To Drop The Hammer Blow by drewhammond


I've known about this work for a long time and after years of searching, as well as asking my various DA friends to help me in this search on if there were any follow-up boxing pictures by this artist, I recently received a render by a collector who was aware of my plight.  Here is that picture which sort of explains what the boxer sitting on the stool between rounds is going through her mind.  It is my assumption that she had been floored in the previous round and in her humiliation is trying to figure out how to win this fight.

 
I view these superb tantalizing images and shake my head in wonder, as well my tormented soul in frustration, of such artists having been blessed with such gifts, and yet cast it all aside into the ether of nothingness.  What are they thinking?  The mind boggles at the loss.
There is more, but I'll leave it at that.

In conclusion, a number of uploads by Lisa are short stories written about superstars fighting each other.  It is a vast ‘Who’s Who’ of renowned female singers and actresses.  
Well, the following picture is one example of my way of visually showing them battling each other:

Red:Pounded To Her Knees-Her Unfinished Business
‘Red: Pounded To Her Knees – Her Unfinished Business Now Finished’.  Render by: Colinscrod.
This is the full title as the DA title block doesn't have enough slots for all the words.

Boxer fella (Sports) by Ehsartem  

‘Well something's lost.
But something's gained,
In living every day.
I've looked at life from both sides now.
From win and lose and still somehow,
It's life's illusions I recall.
I really don't know life at all.
I've looked at life from both sides now.
From up and down, and still somehow,
It's life's illusions I recall.
I really don't know life at all.   Joni Mitchell: ‘Both Sides Now’.

Applaud fella (Reactions) by Ehsartem

Red has had a tough life, and the brilliant lyrics by Joni Mitchell pretty much summarize Red’s existence.  The only change I would make to the lyrics in reference to Red is to substitute: ‘Fighting’ for ‘Living’.  
She doesn’t fight for sport, she fights to exist.
Literally.

The genius of this artist is he is able to take a woman who is rather good looking and transform her into a vision that borders on the edge of grotesque – And it’s all in the teeth.
And yet upon closer inspection what has happened is a number of punches have slammed against her mouth, and the mouth guard she is wearing to prevent chipped teeth is cutting into her gums and the walls of her mouth.  She has just spat out her mouthpiece and the blood covered teeth gives her the look of a vampire – Which, of course, she is not.  Quite simply, as well as quite brutally, this is a fighter who is in painfully bloody distress.  
But don’t make the mistake of pitying her, for she exists on a level that defines the highs and lows of Yin and Yang that most of the rest of us never experience.  
While it is a shrinking majority, the American ‘Middle Class’ is not normally subjected to ‘Suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’, Hamlet is wont to proclaim.  
The only time when most of us have been tested is when we were in the military – Be they man or woman.  For Red, every day is a test of her endurance.

Now as to the artist:
I have an artist friend whom is ‘Good’ in two ways.  First I am honored to be able to call Colin McKenzie a ‘Good Friend’.  Second, he has a ‘Good Heart’, in that he views female fighters – As the Joni Mitchell song goes: ‘From Both Sides Now’.  He depicts them as visually human, and shows ‘Both Sides Now’ – In the extreme.  Some are very good looking, while the majority are not.  They range from one extreme of fatness and unfitness, to the other extreme of bulked up muscular women bodybuilders.  Some are downright ugly, while others are upright pathetic – And some simply foolish for getting themselves into an untenable situation.  But in just about every case Colin shows them as human beings – Often flawed, but deserving either our admiration or pity.  
But never our loathing.  

The following thoughts about this render are from Mister McKenzie, and are from his DA Main Site ‘Artists Comments’ section when he uploaded this render onto his site on November 21, 2016:

Title: ‘Unfinished Business’:  “I get knocked down, but I get up again, never gonna keep me down. . .”

Colin, methinks she not going to beat the count in this match.

There are others who had something to say about this grim picture.  The following are from the artist’s DA Site ‘Viewers Comments’ section:

From: Polkaindepolder – November 21, 2016:  “Down but awesome!”

From:  Gaidenxera – November 21, 2016:  “That is no face you want coming at you regardless of size.”

From: jerrie46 – November 22, 2016:  “Get up! Beat the count Red! More fighting to be done!”

There is no question that Red’ has ‘Heart’.  The expression ‘Heart’ in the boxing world means a fighter will continue to punch away at their opponent to the very end – Even though they have no chance to win the match because they realize they are outmatched in speed, endurance, strength, fistic speed, and punching power.  They will stay in that squared circle until they are battered senseless and bloody to the welcoming canvas - To be counted out.  And even then they will try to get back onto their exhausted feet.
There is a boxing expression that has become a cliché which trainers recite:  ‘Show me a boxer who has ‘Heart’, and I’ll show you a fighter who eventually will have one fight too many, and they will be beaten so badly that they will be physically broken and emotionally destroyed.  To never ever fully recover.
   
So, the question can arise on is there visual precedence of this boxing cliché: ‘One Fight Too Many’.
Is there ever.  
Here are a number of visual results of ‘One Fight Too Many’, that oftentimes becomes one bloody encounter:

Finally, here is a picture that is unlike the others, in that they show the conclusion of a bad decision.  Meaning, she is about to embark on 'One Too Many Fights'.  This is one of my all time favorites in that the artist hints at the profound Greek word: 'Pathos'.  I titled this masterwork:  'Archive MWBO: Her Final Fight’.  Rendering by: Richard57.  MWBO = MasterWorkds By Others: LINK:

The preceding renders are examples of the fundamental goal of Deviant Art, which is to create an artistic vehicle in which pictorial ideas that are in someone’s mind’s eye, and allow them various avenues to make such visions visible.  DA offers a pathway to the creation of art – And that in itself is both inspiring as well as noble.    

If they have the artistic talent to pull this off, then it will be a daunting task; but I will remind him/her of the Robert Browning poem when he stated:

‘Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp. Or what's a heaven for?’

Now to the artist who sent me the render at the top of this lengthy tome:
He goes by Colin McKenzie, and his DA Main Site is: ‘Colinscrod’.
These are 'Gifted' pictures he does for me.  Here's another one:
Colin gave this next render to me and gave it the title of: ‘In Your Face – Literally! Here is the visual link to that superb render: LINK:

The Kayo Final Humilation: Eat This Bitch by drewhammond

Well, that title worked for me.  All I did was add the word: ‘Bitch’, to show that these two boxers didn’t like each other.
But it did get me to thinking.  At first I thought of revising the title, and came up with one I thought was a rather clever title: ‘Black On Black – Literally’.  Then common sense took over and I left things alone.
But I just can't leave things alone, so I eventually changed the title to: 'Eat This - Bitch'.

I don’t create these pictures, except in my mind’s eye, as I am a writer, not an artist.  As such I either commission works of art or friends will ‘Gift’ them to me.  As in this ‘Gift’ case .
Half a lifetime ago I once owned and published and sold illustrated novellas and novels about combative women, and a few mixed match ones, and commissioned artists to do the illustrated art work.  All of which I have uploaded on my DA Main Site (drewhammond).
Currently on DA I still commission original art work but just post them; or with some selected pictures have them framed and hang them on the walls of my house.  They no longer go into illustrated stories.
In addition, I upload works by artists I admire and do writeups about their work and about them.  With their written permission of course, via DA Notes.
So in giving credit where credit is due this stunning female boxing picture was created by the artist, Colin McKenzie.’
Colin gave this render the title of: ‘Unfinished Business’.

Well, that title worked for me – Sorta.  However, I felt that it needed a bit more description, so I modified his title to become:  ‘Red: Pounded To Her Knees – Her Unfinished Business Now Finished’.  

Colin does commissions.
He did one for me, and here is the visual link to that picture I titled '1,550,000 DA HITS: Enough’: LINK:

1,550,000 DA HITS:Enough by drewhammond


And as you can see, as an artist, he is as good as they get.

Over the years I’ve issued commissions to various artists.  I realize that when I commission a picture from an artist, I am not the easiest person to work with – This because I have a vision in my mind’s eye, and want very much to see that vision made visual.  
I’m even this way when I ask, or an artist volunteers, a gift picture.  And that is what I subjected this artist to.
Colin has a sense of humor and it is this trait that gets him past my grumpy stages.  He is also patient, and will try to do whatever he can to make a work of art come out exactly – Be it a gift or a customer.

'Nuff said,
Drew.

OMG, Selene.  Thank you so much for leading me to Fred's DA Main Site.  I got permission from him to use a black and white photo, of a corner scene that will be part of my GABGA (Great Art Begets Greater Art) series.  
He has a number of pictures of my very good friend, 'Jeff The Ref', who I used to run around with when I was in London or Vienna.  Alas, he's passed away.  
Also am continuing with my 'Celebrity Fights' and the next one is: ‘Celebrity Fights: Déjà Vu – Laila Ali KOs Claressa Shields’.  If you send me an e-mail to:  drew692@verizon.net    I will send back an attachment of the POV (Point Of View) that Steve and I are working on - For your eyes only.  
Thanks, again for the great link.  Drew.
