HAHAHA Well... I was at a bookstore today looking through some mags to build up the mental library. My goal today was to draw draw draw, and not worry about a finished product, until I got back to the pad. I didn't think I would carry the pic this far. I wanted to push something new that I don't normally do, which is including real people in my gallery. Here we have Allen Iverson from the Sixers basketball team. Yeah, I know, I have to work on the resemblance, but that was not my intent, but I thought it might be close enough to follow through with it. I referenced this pic from the April edition of 'SLAM'.


Hope y'all digs!

dude, The Answer is one of the best basketball players in NBA league! his ankle-breaking crossovers are as crazy as hell. Do you know that he moved to Nuggets and now hes with the Pistons? I love how you drew his body and the pose. It's freaking awsome! Allen Iverson fans should notice this and your true talent. Who are your other favourite players beside this guy? I have many! Kevin Garnett the Big Ticket, Tim "The Big Fundamental" Duncan, Shaq the Diesel, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwayne "The Flash" Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and many more!

Awesome man! i'm not the biggest AI fan but i still acknoledge his maad skillz. for effect, i suggest that he should hav been drawn closer to the ground and then the arm with the ball could have been extended more outwards. that'd hav made him look more like the ankle-breaker he is! good job tho! this gets a +fave!

The simplicity of you compositions are very impressive.
How you handle lines and color just cause your work to jump off the page (screen).

How long have you been drawing? You never cease to amaze me.
Nuff respect! Kudos & props well deserved.

Regards...
