Ohio State Coach Jim Tressel

OK not the biggest celebrity, just the head coach of The Ohio State football team, but if you live in Columbus Ohio like I do you can't go anywhere in this city and not see an Ohio State Buckeye flag. This city is crazy about football and in two weeks when the team has it's inner squad scrimmage at the Horseshoe (the Stadium) there will be 50,000 fans there watching, and it's just a practice game. The Horseshoe holds over 100 thousand fans and is an impressive site to see when it's sold out (which is everygame.) I hope to have this picture of Jim Tressel the head football coach ready before the season starts and see if any local paper or magazines would be interested in more of this kind of work. Maybe even get a chance to draw some of the players.

This looks great. The values in the pants look spot on. Nice one!

Just great! The values in the pants are what caught me, too. Really nice rendering. Can't wait to see the final!

And a nice posture too! The jacket also is quite catchy. I really like it:) Looking at it I have the feeling I am learning; always great to see drawings where things are really understood and clear.

Steve great work!! I don't know who he is, but as a caricature of a coach, you can tell the posture, the look, everything about it is hilarious.
