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.
