Baseball player



As I was drawing this, my four year old daughter, the art critic, said "It would be better without the pokey nose." I explained to her that it was supposed to be sort of a funny drawing. Then she laughed and said "look at him's pokey nose."
It's funny what kids zero in on.

Uh... what do you mean, more right leg? It's right there, don't you see it? :o)

Actually, I took you advice and added it in. It's a quick digital fix, but I think it works.

My original reference was an old Mickey Mantle photo. His right leg does disappear behind his left leg, but you do see a little bit of his right heel poking out behind his left leg. A case of being too literal to the reference. Good call. That's why you da man.
