Son-in-Law challenge and another great sunrise!

Oh boy...here I go again with another challenge for my son-in-law for Christmas. This one isn't linear like the Memorial Stadium, but a challenge none the less. This is from another pic I posted some time back of Nebraska players. Damon doesn't want names so it will remain timeless. I have "zoomed" in on the players so the painting will be a bit custom. I've also moved them around a bit...I decided that you all were so helpful and supportive on my last big challenge that I would bring you in from the beginning! This sketch is merely a beginning so I can see where I need to adjust things...I already see a problem with sizes...but I'm telling you...some of these guys necks are SO big I'm having a hard time really showing it...ha...I'm sure I'll get over it and begin to see them as shapes so I'm not tempted to make things smaller...even those shoulders! WHEW! So...hopefully I will knock this out way quicker than my last challenge...but I'm sure I'll do my best...You may have to click on this drawing to see it...and, as always...thoughts are always welcome!

I couldn't leave you with a drawing beginning, so thought I'd share my latest sunrise...BEAUTIFUL skies we have here in Colorado!!

Happy Painting to you all!!

This is going to be awesome, Saundra! I'm thrilling to the idea of the backs of the heads, and those covered with helmets! LOL Such a figure would be much easier on me, were I to venture human forms! I think this is going to be great and I know Damon is going to be thrilled to pieces with his Christmas gifts! Will they come in to spend Christmas with you two or will you head their way? Also so glad to know that you will still be close to your beautiful trees and views after moving. I feel better!!

Thank you Autumn Leaves...I've reworked the drawing some to bring things into better proportion. I hope Damon likes it. They are coming here for Christmas...which may the last one up here for us...so it should be special!!
