80s Badass Week continues!
"Rambo is an action film series based on the David Morrell novel First Blood and starring Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo, a troubled Vietnam War veteran and former Green Beret who is skilled in many aspects of survival, weaponry, hand to hand combat and guerrilla warfare. The series consists of the films First Blood (1982), Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Rambo III (1988), and Rambo (2008).
Upon returning to the United States, Rambo has difficulty adjusting to civilian life and wanders the country as a drifter for almost a decade. In December 1981, Rambo travels to the fictional town of Hope, Washington, in search of a Special Forces buddy named Delmore Barry. Rambo arrives at Delmore's supposed residence and finds Delmore's little daughter and his depressed widow. Delmore's widow tells Rambo that her husband had died from cancer the previous summer due to exposure to Agent Orange, and that she must eke out a living as a cleaning lady and on Delmore's Service member's Group Life Insurance. Rambo, attempting some cold comfort, gives Mrs. Barry the photograph of Delmore's unit.
Between the first and second films, Rambo is convicted and remanded to a civilian maximum-security prison where heavy duty labor is the norm. Despite being a convict, the rigid routine and discipline of prison life provides Rambo with some measure of much-needed stability, as it reminds him of his past in the military and its own rigid hierarchy.
Between the second and third films, Rambo takes up residence near a monastery where he engages in frequent meditation to find a sense of inner peace. Although Rambo believes his soldiering days are apparently over, he does not become a complete pacifist, as he often participates in violent stick fighting matches and donates the purse of his winnings to the monks to help renovate the monastery.

Rules and info:
Info The DSC is posted Daily Monday-Friday at the Outcast Studios Artwork Forum:outcaststudios.com/forums/inde…
Each topic is open roughly 36 hours and then closed forever!
Entries: The goal of the DSC is to make you pick up your pencil everyday! Quality/Time are not the goals. If you only have time to draw a stick figure that's acceptable and encouraged!
No Critiques: Because the entries are often quick simple sketches it's unfair to the artist who's participating to be bombarded with comments about the "Guys hand is wrong" when that artist chose to spend his time on shadows for this sketch. So no critiques.
If YOU want a critique post your entry on your personal DA page for that!
Encouragement Encouraged: It's hard to take the time to do this on a regular basis so be sure to let the artist know when you see something you like!
