I have an assortment of sketch cards, as I'm still dabbling and don't know what card stock I prefer, so I grabbed one that sort of has the same texture as an Upper Deck Masterpieces card. I decided to mimic that design, and honor Jesus Montero's first career HR (and 2-HR game) as a Masterpiece because, well, it was.
It only took me about 30 minutes. I probably could have done a better job or added more detail, especially to the background, but I decided to just let it be. I think his batting stance came out well, although his helmet looks a little too big. Maybe it was one of those Marvin the Martian concussion helmets like David Wright wore. I still shy away from faces, so I just sort of shaded around it. Ugh. One day I have to tackle a face and get comfortable with it.
