Color Me Creative Challenge #80 - Masculine Card Challenge

It's time for a new Challenge at Color Me Creative.  This one is the guy/masculine challenge.  I used an image called Slugger Sam from our sponsor  Dr. Digi.  The site has super-fun male images.

My intention with this image was push myself with coloring - and I did!  The white uniform was tricky in creating midtones and for shading.  I used my light C's .  I also worked to add ripples to his clothes and giving his uniform stripes!

This card is for my grandson's 13th birthday.  He's a big Minnesota Twins fan, so from the outset, I was determined to mirror the Twins uniform.  I googled the Twins and looked for images of players and coaches in a bit of a side view to see how the logo would look on the uniform. Unfortunately nobody had Sam's big belly, so I had to do a little guessing!  I'm pleased with the coloring and how the card turned out!

I used this week's Sketch Challenge (#459) at Splitcoast Stampers for my card design.  It was a perfect compliment for the bold Slugger Sam image.

Now it's your turn - get your guy/masculine cards going and link your card up at Color Me Creative.  You have until November 8th.
