Collide - Day 17


Wasn’t feeling this prompt so I grabbed my sketchbook and turned on the TV and bam, there was my answer. 😂🏉 Over the years I’ve actually grown fond of football; I wouldn’t call myself an actual fan (I still don’t know so many of the rules lol), but I know enough to watch and enjoy it from time to time. And I find it strangely relaxing to have on in the background while drawing.😅🤷‍♀️

I’ve never been very good at super quick pose studies, so this was actually drawn from my head (plus some TV ref for the outfits). I could’ve and (prob should’ve) looked up some football pose refs because it’s never a great idea to jump into a difficult action pose blind. I have a feeling this tackle is probably completely inaccurate to how actual football players would do it. But I had my wifi off, and just wanted to chill and not do research. The dude getting tackled is as stiff as cardboard but that is ok.🙃

It's almost like one's saving the other from a barrage of pen and pencil projectiles coming in at high speed. :P

Looks great really. Impressive without reference. Maybe the motion isn't authentic to the sport but it's almost like it goes beyond it that way. Like a jujitsu throw. Like a hug. Like however you'd decipher it. Though if you didn't mention the lacking mobility maybe I wouldn't have thought twice about it in the first place...

The smileys are such a fun detail too. Add an element of expression to it that maybe you wouldn't have at all when you don't see their faces. Plus comical tone.


Zaccura responds:

Ahhh thank you so much for your super thoughtful review! Appreciate it. :)
