Michael Phelps Final Sketch


Once again I'm much happier with the likeness on this one. I was still working with a pretty bad lo-res reference photo...ahh, but now he's on the cover of the new S.I. and I'm sure good ones will now be abundant (estimated to make 100 million in endorsements!!!!). Good for him...some times hard work does pay off!!

I don't think I'll be able to make to Raleigh this year...a bit bummed about it since it looks to be a terrific Con with Joe, Court, Jason, & Jan offering workshops and Ismael Roldan as the guest speaker and not to mention sharing a few cold ones with you my friend!

Tel said...

That's a pity Vin - never mind if you're driving by any time drop in - always a coldie in the fridge !
Top Phelps BTW - though I think the earlier sketch had more character to it - the cross hatching - sweet !

Marion said...

Yes, this one is better! I didn't agree at first but now I do.

Vincenzo said...

I knew I could conVINce you ;)

Joe Bluhm said...

Awesome sketch, Vin.

Please reconsider Raleigh, if there's any way you can make it.

FerdinandKreozot said...

I wish I could do something like this.

Cheers to your skill,

Wow Vin, this is a great drawing, a spot on likeness and a well balanced level of exaggeration. The background also adds a little flare, but not over whelming, excellent job.
