Jake Plummer (December 4, 1997)
Above is Denver Bronco Jake Plummer back in his days as an Arizona State Sun Devil. Artistically, this piece was a big step for me because I covered all the lights and darks instead of "rounding" to black and white in complex areas. Previously, I would have drawn only the darkest portions of his skin and helmet and let the white paper take care of the rest. In this drawing I made a conscious effort to not let the paper do any work for me and as a result, received an improved final drawing.
