The Answer by kickstandkid78 The Answer by kickstandkid78
Allen Iverson Illustration/Toy Design from the All Star Vinyl series I worked on for Upper Deck, Mark Irwin :icongeddlee: Art Directed. Had great fun designing this figure, alot of it just in the research. Don't really follow sports, so with each assignment like this I'd try to get a handle on the players personality, where they were hard to get a bead on (Dwayne Wade) the work suffered a bit. Iverson is a really interesting guy though, a great interview, and to whatever degree I managed to capture him, he had a clear persona to aim for. Heh, he did get traded after I'd completed 3 Illo's with him in a Sixers jersey, so re-doing those was less than fun.

you're talking about him not showing up to practice? naw, that attitude is a lil unrelatable. he was saying how he'd dive for a ball when he was surrounded by millionaires worried about their knees, that i dug.

Nice man! This piece is all kinds of hot! I always liked this one. I love how you exaggerated his hand and feet, it just feels right somehow.

Thanks sir! Exaggeration doesn't come naturally, it nice to have time to finesse that on illustration jobs.
