‘Archive Mark393: Cornered And Kayoed – Literally’. Rendering by: Mark393.
Mark, the artist, has a DA Main Site he calls: ‘Mark393’, and primarily features women fighting other women. The female versus female fights are usually boxing and wrestling matches. He sometimes does ‘Mixed Matches’, and the same goes for the male versus female matches. Normally the expression ‘Mixed Match’ means a boxing or wrestling match between a male versus a female fighter.
Now, what the artist had in mind about this scene is the conclusion of a classic female versus female boxing match.
What follows is from Mark’s DA Main Site ‘Artists Comments’ section when he uploaded this image onto his website on December 9, 2013:
Title: ‘Cornered And Ruined’: “Black Cat pressed the Blue Mice against the ropes...”
To be added: And in the doing, ‘Black Cat’ slammed a fight ending roundhouse left glove against the jaw of ‘Blue Mice’ – Knocking her onto her toes and out of the match.
There were a number of comments about this picture by DA viewers that were posted in the artist’s ‘Viewers Comments’ section. And they are as follows:
From: Jose-Ramiro Dec 9, 2013: “Whoa. Very one-sided.
Keep up the good writing and drawing.”
Reply from: mark393 – January 3, 2014: “But it takes two 2 tango'...”
Reply from: Jose-Ramiro – January 4, 2014: “Heh, true that.”
From: MasterSaruwatari – December 9, 2013: “Very hot to get out of the corner.
Neggy: Hello, I am back again. I hope you enjoy your stay.”
Reply from: mark393 – January 3, 2014: “Always was.”
Reply from: MasterSaruwatari – January 3, 2014: “Yup.”
From: stephanieboxer – December 30, 2013: “Crowd seems rather unexcited, what is happening to them?
Let's get it on, hit me hard.”
Reply from: mark393 – January 3, 2014: “Good you've noticed. I am working on it.”
In my DA Main Site I have a number of 'Archive' folders. Each of them hold the 'Best Of' various artists or subjects, and each of those folders have an 'Avatar', which serves as the gateway to that specific folder. The pictures by Mark are going into a folder I have titled: 'The Best Of Mark393 Folder'. Here is the visual link to the Avatar of that folder: LINK:
As concerns Mark, the following is a writeup I did way back on January 21, 2015, for a picture he did for me which I titled: ‘Avatar: Mixed Matches Folder – CombativeWomen Group’. Render by: mark393.’ Though written 4 years ago, his artwork is timeless in its quality and humor. However, in this Avatar it is sans humor. And I feel the comments by me are as apropos now, as then:
In my DA ‘CombativeWomen’ Group I have a number of folders, and as such each folder will have a full size avatar as its logo.
This one was created by Mark, an artist who has a DA Site he calls: ‘mark393’. This terrific 3D rendering is from that superb website – Which is devoted to combative women; as well as some combative men; and mixed matches between the two.
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 the drama of ‘Aboveground Boxing’ held in an arena. Both boxers know about and accept the brutality of a ‘Fight To The Finish’ in which it goes to a knockout. Each is determined to go all out to render their opponent unconscious – No winner by decision in this battle.
To conclude, it’s that sprawled female boxer on the canvas who is in pained distress and is looking at her opponent and is thinking hard about staying down or getting back up in order to continue fighting that sealed the deal on choosing this picture as the avatar.
This picture and writeup was originally uploaded in my ‘DA Group’ Site, and placed in the ‘Mixed Matches’ folder on July 26, 2012. The POV (Point Of View) is so profound that it has returned to become the visual symbol of that folder. Kind of makes visual the cliché: ‘Whatever goes around comes around’.
Here is the visual link to the Avatar of that DA Group Folder: LINK:
Now, this picture has a history:
The following was written by me when it was originally uploaded back in 2012. It held true then, and holds true now, and as such is apropos for all our tomorrows:
‘MMB: All The World’s A Stage’. Rendering by: mark393. MMB = Mixed Match Boxing.
‘All the world’s a stage.
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances.
And one man in his time plays may parts.’
Shakespeare: ‘As You Like It’.
To paraphrase the Bard, ‘All The World’s A Boxing Ring’. Or at least for these two players. Consider how similar a stage and boxing ring are. Both are usually elevated; both are the absolute center of attraction for an audience; and both present the full range of human heroism at one extreme, and folly at the other.
I’ll leave it up to the viewer to determine where, within those extremes, this scene represents.
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 is the case here with the previous and following pictures.
Of course the question can arise on are there other DA artists who can depict the moment a boxing glove hits an opponent with such force that they will drop to their knees, or onto their back and be counted out by a Referee?
Are there ever:
