This started out as a Ballpoint pen sketch but once I scanned it I couldn't resist doing a little digital paining. By the way I have established another outpost to showcase my work - check it out at

The Marshall

8.5" x 14" Digital
Considered one of the greatest athletes in all of college sports, number 28 Marshall Faulk "showed out" at San Diego State University. As a true Freshman in a game against University of the Pacific, Faulk ran for 386 yards and 7 touchdowns - both NCAA records. He was the number two overall pick in the '94 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts. He later won a Super Bowl with the Rams and was the main cog in what would be known as "The Greatest Show on Turf."

This is another pencil sketch that I scanned in and manipulated with Photoshop.

The Eddie George

6" x 14" pencil sketch

27 is Eddie George of "The" Ohio State University. EG is the 2nd leading rusher in Buckeye history with 3,768 yards. He edged out Nebraska's Tommie Frazier to win the 1995 Heisman Trophy.

My favorite part about this sketch is the composition. I can see this being a nice painting.
