Hello, I am a digital artist that practices MMA fighting, particularly Muay Thai for striking and BJJ for grappling. The fighters I spar against are mostly specialize in BJJ, so I have experienced all sorts of crazy submission holds. In my gallery, I try to apply my experiences and knowledge of submission holds to give my images a sense of realism and intensity. I have both witnessed and received some pretty nasty injuries from submission holds, and know how devastating they can be.

Imagine a fight without rules or restraints. What happens when someone is locked in a submission hold and has no possibility of escape? It just might end up being a "Fatal Hold".

Enjoy the gallery!

Love your work a lot, man. Do you take commissions or anything? Obviously not for comics, but for images and whatnot.

a little something to help with your pic:

in here shows two swords commonly used by brownies.
there's the fan blade with its flat wide tip and the machete like stinger blade.

and for intimidation there are the whistle swords which make a daunting sort of fluting noise when swung:

You have an amazing gallery. I love the torture rack scenes.
I love the mismatches the most. That's some stimulating
artwork in that genre. :)
