As promised, here’s my attempt at a Derek Jeter Sketch card for Sooz of A Cardboard Problem:
As you can see, by no means is it poorly drawn. I just completely failed at making it look like jeter. I dunno what went wrong, because two other sketch cards I attempted before this (and also a similar sized work) of other people looked like who they were meant to look like.
He isn’t colored because I lack markers in navy blue and his particular skin tone, and I skipped the gray because I just thought it looked better without any color at all to go with a colored background, though that didn’t turn out quite as I’d envisioned either. I did mention to Sooz needing practice, and if nothing else, this was definitely a learning experience.
Couple other quickies:
• My 2009 A&G is ordered. You’ve been put on notice, my fellow Gint-A-Cufflinks. Or something.
• I pulled an awesome card out of a 1/2-priced pack of 2008 UD Masterpieces from K-Mart this afternoon. That will be posted as a Random Cool Card I Own soon. Alas, retail Masterpieces has already been posted at A Pack to be Named Later, so the pack itself won’t be seen on there.
Ironically, the pack posted on APtbNL had three of the four cards in the other pack of Masterpieces I bought (all except former White Sox slugger Frank Thomas; got current White Sox slugger Jim Thome instead). Madness. And… I’m out.
Until our next…
