I'm excited to see more. You're making me wanna jump in with you, if for nothing less than to poke fun at some of the other teams' players.
Thanks :).

I am using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet. As for my background, I had been drawing since I was a kid. Went to art school in NY for one year and then started working doing icons for a website in 1999. In 2004 my entire portfolio was thrown in the trash by a pretty rotten person while I was away visiting family. I stopped drawing for about 10 years after that - then my daughter was born and I realized I needed to go after it again.

I recommend Corel Painter if you'd like a program that imitates more traditional mediums. It's extremely similar to actual pencils, paints, charcoals, etc., and the more recent versions have a many of the same layer and adjustment options Photoshop has.

Yeah I downloaded it but I need to brush up on the UI and shortcuts a bit more first. I've been using PS for years and until I log in more hours with Corel I'm just not that comfortable with it yet. I agree though, it feels much more like painting with that program than with PS.

Hey now. I am offended! Wait, if you can't laugh at others, who can you laugh at? Wait, I meant laugh at "yourself." Ah... I give up.

Being an artist myself, I respect your humor, skill, and inventivity (yeah, I just made that up, I guess it works).

Oh and we can't forget they are playing in the big game each year. You know, the Soupy Bowl.

I am about to head out to my in-laws for dinner but if any of you are interested I put the design up on the site and you can buy it as a t-shirt if you want. Here is the link. I'll be back to chat with you guys more tonight.
