Irish Rugby Team

So, it’s finished. I said I wanted to do at least 15 players. Well, I beat that by one! I would like to do the whole squad, past and current players. There's loads of other players I'd like to draw...O'Gara, Jackson, Hayes, Willie John McBride. It's a long list. Time does not allow, I’m afraid. And you know what they say about time...I have other projects to begin working on.  [The last image is a gallery. Give it a click and go through all the mugshots.]

Okay-already, I will be doing some more! Just in time for the Six Nations and a little thing called The World Cup!!!. I love it! I think I’ll have at least each captain from the teams. I’ll also be doing a few sketches of the ladies teams (Can’t be forgetting about the girls now!). Come back for more!

Irish Rugby Team w.i.p [Update]

Here's an update to my Irish Rugby Players series. Distractions and other jobs notwithstanding, I've done the line-work to quite a few by now. I'm itching to getting this stage finished and move onto the painting. It's a task to keep consistent with the line-work weights, but overall I'm happy so far. I don't want to be trapped by seeking perfection.  The colouring stage will be quick enough, I've set myself a template to stick by. One or two more decisions will be made at this stage. Here's where I'm at so far...

How many can you name?

Gordon D'Arcy -I did think about painting a lumberjack shirt on him. He chops men down on the tackle.

Another five or six and I'm calling it a day. I don't care that it's not all the current squad. Well, I do a bit, but time constraints mean I can't do everyone. But some of these guys are my favourite players. I'm not forgetting about the ladies team. I'll be picking a few of those to draw also. And because I see them every week in the Premiership, some of the English lads too.
