Donovan McNabb

02 Jan 2010

Another athlete courtesy of Sports Illustrated. In this case, Donovan McNabb doing what he does best: scramble out of trouble.

This sketch started out as just a study of his arm and hand, but I thought I needed to give the disembodied arm a little bit of context; so I sketched out the rest of his body. Maybe if I do enough drawings of individual parts, I’ll be able to put them together into a cohesive whole someday. This method was good enough for students during The Renaissance; it should work for me. Right?
