Designing a Wrestling Belt for The Rock

Over the past few months, I have been art directing The Rock’s YouTube Channel, designing almost every visual asset for the bi-weekly video uploads. For the Season Finale of Rock the Promo, I was asked to design a wrestling belt.

Here was my initial design, made in 123D Design:

The initial plan was to get it printed in metal from Shapeways, but then we needed a quick turnaround. So, we opted to use subtractive milling, requiring me to build it again in Adobe Ilustrator:

This was accepted, and we sent it out to be commissioned. She was beautiful.

Hope I get the chance to design the belt for season two!
