first off i'm using a shot from google images , this shouldn't matter as A.. The work is not for any sort of gain and B the lad that commissioned it is disabled and in a wheelchair

so far i am up to my third coat of gesso

this will be displayed in 3 areas as A the background will be in acrylics B the acrylics will be airbrushed and C the main subject will be in oils

Hey , this is coming along nicely, hope you dont mind me saying but it seems as though the arms and hands are not in proportion to the rest of the body. your background is very well done but your main focus is the player and so to me just seems to need a little bit of tweaking . nice work so far

a little further on !! it is odd sometimes things can seem out of proportion and to some degree it probably is , but once colour and contrasts go on it seems to make a bit more sense , the legs seem a bit short and out of proportion as they are bent but also the body is leant forwards in a sprint position so it will probably i'd guess pull together more as it goes along as the drawing is not a million miles away from the refrence

I really love seeing the work in progress shots and how the painting is developing.

I particularly like the football and the shine on it.
Best of luck with the rest of the painting, I can't wait to see how it progresses :)

Beautiful job, especially the background, it's so hard to achieve something fuzzy but realistic like that!
