Here as a break from all the wearyingly monochromatic sketchbook scans is a bit of actual finished work.
Magazine illustration to accompany an interview with footballer Andy Dawson. The brief was for a portrait in a "Roy of the Rovers meets Manga" style.
I'm not a big football fan but I do really enjoy drawing footballers - they have the same sort of appeal as superheroes I guess, but with the added bonus of wearing actual clothes, which means lots of dynamic wrinkles and drapery, which is one of my favourite things to draw.
(Di finds it quite hilarious that I own a book entitled 'Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery".)
