I love baseball. This is a nod to the old days I never saw. The stadium is mostly based on the old Polo Grounds, but there's a bit of Ebbet's Field in there too. The player isn't anyone specific - the 57 on his uniform is for the last year the Giants played in New York before moving to San Francisco.
A close up.
Some thumbnails. I played with the idea of it raining for a bit.
Some color studies. There were more of these, but I seemed to have deleted them. Whoops!
And the final drawing before coloring.
Also, I'm a feature illustrator on the awesome Illustration Mundo this week. Awesome!
