Don't know about youthful - that's HIS issue, not yours! GREAT drawing...I love your color work but really like seeing this version - beautiful.
I can't add anything to what John said —very very nice work! I like the lighting —strong and contrasty! Neat lettering too.
Nicely done! I cannot ever remember drawing a sports figure. I have done product with football themes, but not illustration. I did do color sheets for Starting Line Up at Kenner when I co-oped there in the late 80s tho...
Thanks guys! Sports is pretty much all I did for a while. I've since moved on and rarely do it anymore - not that I mind it, I just don't get the same kind of projects I did when I was full-time at The Post.
