Happy Birthday, Eli Manning

One of several people younger, richer, and more successful than me, NY Giants quarterback Eli Manning turns 28 today. They entered the playoffs as a wild card team with a 10-6 record last season. The bastards defeated the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship. But it was for a good cause, as they went on to defeat the undefeated Patriots in Superbowl XLII. As a result, Eli was named MVP of the Superbowl and would no longer be doomed to live in the shadow of his older brother, Peyton Endorsement Whore Manning.

This is one of those drawings that I wasn't too pleased with when I sketched it out, but for some stupid reason thought that it would look better once I rendered it. I don't know how many times I have to remind myself that no amount of rendering will disguise crappy, lazy groundwork.

This doesn't look like lazy groundwork to me....You nailed him, got his expression perfectly.
Very nice as is all your stuff. said...

Thanks! Although I respect the guy, I think I could have made him look stupider. He almost always has this lost, unsure-of-himself kind of look.

I hear ya, but for a profile with a helmet on I think you captured that look pretty well.
