I like the Derrick Rose picture. I'm a Bulls fan, so obviously he has a slight advantage their. That picture has been my laptop background for a few months; I'm quite fond of it... The RZA picture was a close second because EVERYBODY loves the Wu-Tang Clan!!!
Jozy Altidore's picture is my favorite out of this tremendous collection. To me it symbolizes the passion that he has for playing the game of soccer and representing his country on the largest stage of the sport. I really like how you incorporated the blue into the white shirt, with the red as a nice backdrop. I do not want to get religious, but when I see that picture I think of one who may be looking into the heavens (often with a beam of light shining on them.) The beam of light in this case is red, as if Jozy is looking up to the heavens and is being showered with pride that it means to be a citizen of the United States. His face portrays an intense emotion, while his hand grabbing his chest (where the USA badge is located) shows how lucky he feels to be in the moment. This picture captures the moment of doing what one loves, pride for country, and feeling blessed. That pretty much sums up why I chose that photo as my favorite in your collection.
I have been following your The RZA is my favorite of your illustrations because I feel that it is a totally unique project, and it turned out wonderfully. The half face was a wise choice, because like Bobby Digital's work, you leave much of the art up for the viewer's interpretation. I especially like the wu symbol you put in the eyes, it shows the fire RZA has for making great tracks. Anyways, good stuff man, this is a great thing you're doing for the fans.
Have a good one!
Love the Steve Nash Jedi pic. Your portrait captures his great understanding of the game at every moment and his ability to make the amazing happen!
J-Chill, for sure. It just so captured the essence of the fro.
It was a tough choice between Jozy Altidore and Sir Charles. Both illustrations are killer and would look superb on a wall. In the end I went with Charles since he's one of my top 5 all time suns players. Go Suns!
The World Cup is the ultimate sporting stage in the world. The US had the best sports moment I've ever seen scoring against Algeria in stoppage time. Donovan to Altidore to Dempsey back to Donovan...gooooaaallll!
This picture captures the passion of the tournament.
I love the Steve Nash Jedi pic because he really does have the force with him! He's amazing at what he does and he is consistently incredible!!!
