I was surprised that no one could ID my latest drawing of J.K. Rowling, so I tried to think of someone with a recognizable face who would be fun to draw. A co-worker suggested a sports figure.
I skipped over the Celtics, because I haven’t had much luck drawing darker skintones, and I can’t find good reference pics of Larry Legend. That brought me to the Pats. I didn’t want to draw Brady, so that left me with either Kraft, Bruschi or Belichick as recognizable faces. I went with the coach.
I’m not sure how good a likeness it is. My wife thinks it’s good, but I’m not sure. However, I seem to be the worst judge of that, especially after staring at the drawing for hours and days. Stupidly, I chose a pic of Belichick where he’s smiling, not exactly a recognizable look for him.
Still, I am happy with the depth of the drawing. I made a conscious effort to go darker with my darks, and I think it worked out.
