So here’s my slightly polished version of the piece. For the final, I’ll block in the ground the same way the body was done and have the logo “painted” somewhere in the grass, location is subject to change based on this current shot, but won’t be too radically off. The background will be left with loose ambiguous strokes of the brush, indicating a stadium in the back, though will be mostly dark, and will fade/transition into the grass to get some depth. Unless a purely flat approach would feel more appropriate?
Feet and football need some work, and the whole thing will be tighter in terms of detail though the eyes will be left as glowing shapes, as the face would be obscured with shadows at that angle and lighting. Maybe some small tweaks on the color.
Any feed back would be appreciated.
