Almost finished! Still need to complete the background, and then start adding the fine details! Y’all ain’t seen nothing yet!! ✏️🧐‬

So many subtle changes from dark to light within this background. Gotta capture the changes accurately or else the blurred background will look off and won’t have level of realism that I’m going for.

Adding the first layer of the background. Lots of subtle light and dark transition that need to be blended together. And still have lots of refining details to add to Ichiro!

A bit more refining of Ichiro’s arm and glove. Still mapping out where I want to add the fine details, which I’ll add later.

Refined Ichiro’s face and helmet a bit more. Starting to add a bit more detail to his batting gloves, which are actually quite intricate.

Trying to get Ichiro’s proportions accurate before I start adding the detail.

Added the second layer of shading… with many more to go! At this stage, the goal is to get Ichiro’s facial features mapped out, and then I’ll go back and add the details.

Back in the studio and working on a new piece!! I’ve been wanting to draw Ichiro for a while now.

My sister is his biggest fan, and I actually arranged for her to meet him at a Mariners game several years ago. She was sooo excited!! I posted the video of her meeting Ichiro on YouTube and the video got ~50k views… Mostly from Japan. So now my sister thinks she’s famous in Japan!! 😂😂😂
