I have never been a traditional sports nut and probably only ever got a ribbon or trophy for participation, but surely not for my sports prowess. That’s why this prompt was so fun, I got to think about the things I WOULD get a medal or trophy for if they were giving them out. A fun portrait of myself and my silliness… This piece was started on pencil and paper, then inked on paper, and then scanned into the computer. The vectorizing and colorizing was done in Adobe Illustrator for the finished piece.
