Finished at last!
I think I started this thing before the play offs, it's been so long, I can't remember. I started out wanting to do it in pastel, but the urge for detail took over-I finally signed & photograped it tonight. It's done in colored pencil on black illustration board, dimensions are 20"x24".

That was real nice I couldnt do that ever. If I was asked to draw that it would look like little stick men. I bet you could sell that for a pretty penny.

great job. I'm also an artist. My major is illustration and animation.

Thanks, you guys!
I have a really cool idea for framing it, but putting that all together will take awhile. I want to start with a black anodized diamond plate aluminum frame & for the matt outline, a thin peice of gold anodized aluminum. (i work at a sheetmetal fabrication shop) The design for it all has to be perfected, one of these days soon..
For my next one, I'd love to do Joey Porter in his element, yelling on the sidelines. Or sacking peyton Manning!
