More Ronny Rockel

Ronny Rockel scanned from more photos by Alex Ardenti.
As an aside, I'm not happy with that last one. First, some resolution was lost as it was taken from a small image. Second, I should have worked more on the middle ground, but once I realized that I felt I had invested too much time to scrap it and start over.

A Couple More Guys

On top is Ronny Rockel from an Alex Ardenti photo. I'll be posting more of this popular bodybuilder.
On the bottom is Armon Abidi. I've been working on this one for awhile and I would guess the photographer is Chris Lund, though I can't recall.

A Couple of Guys

The first is Fouad Abiad from a photo by Paul Buceta.
The second guy I've seen, maybe even posted before, but his name escapes me. Scanned from a photo by Pavel Ythjall.

Denis Sergovskiy

There's only 1 scan today for a couple of reasons, the main being my partner has left for the U.K. on business so I've been otherwise occupied. Yup, just me and the dog for the next few weeks. On the plus side I've got some new scans to work on and they should be posted soon.
I realize it's not a great muscle shot but it's a nice close up of him.
I'd gladly give credit to the photographer but I've lost my notes.

Two for Wednesday

Okay, so a couple more scans (help, I'm running out!).
The first is James "Flex" Lewis from a small pic, which is why the resolution is kind of poor, and I don't know who took the photograph.
The second is Eric "The House" Fankhouser from a photo by Per Bernal.

A Tuesday Mix

A mix of men because I'm running out of scans for you guys. I hope to get some new stuff soon.
In the meantime, here's Craig Licker from a pic by Irvin Gelb I lifted sometime ago off the web and finally got around to working on. Next up is Adrian Peterson from a photo by Ian Spanier. The last is Brian Wiefering (photo by Marc Royce), not a great image but, hey, it's Brian.

The second is Darrem Charles scanned from an advertisement.

Trey Brewer and Even Including Brandon Curry

Trey Brewer and Brandon Curry scanned from ads for products by BSN.
And no, I didn't Photoshop the two of them together, they were printed that way.
Also, while I don't consider them great photos, they do manage to convey muscle size and I like that.

A good looking guy (can anyone ID?) putting some action into his workout.
Unknown photographer.

Ronnie Coleman On Stage

I came across this photo in Flex magazine and thought it was terrific. I believe that's Joe Weider presenting Ronnie with his medal. I have no idea when this was taken. Photo by Ian Spanier.
{Sorry, according to readers' comments that's Ben Weider and the year is 2006. Thanks everyone.}

Mixed Muscle

Today's mix consists of Brandon Curry, who just won the overall title at the 2008 NPC USA Championships, Evan Centopani, and Craig Richardson. Craig is new to me but not to bodybuilding. You can find him at http://www.craigrichardson.net/. And he's won second place in the 2008 IFBB Houston Pro.

Dennis Wolf, Jay Cutler, and Ronnie Coleman.
Scanned from photos by Chris Lund.
And to think I was complaining about the lack of muscle yesterday in Per Bernal's pics of Dennis.

Some More Dennis Wolf

Dennis Wolf is one of my favorite big guys but I'm a little disappointed in these pics.
Per Bernal managed to capture Dennis' size but I like to see the muscle.
Let me know your opinion.
