  1. The highlights are coming from the right.   Since he is looking toward the right,  It seems natural to place the light source from that direction. E11 was applied to the shadow area of the face and neck.  Blend toward the center with E00 for the mid-tone.  Continue with E000 for the highlighted area.   The process was repeated using the same light source for consistency.  A touch of R20 was used on the lips and cheeks.  E000 was lightly blended over the top of the R20 to soften the color and allow a smoother blend.  
  2. The colors of the Golden State Warriors are Golden for the mountains and blue for the sky.   Copic colors  Y28, YR23, YR21, YR20 and Y00 were used for the shirt.    Working in small areas  allow  for smoother blending.  
  3. The process was repeated for the sports trunks.  
  4. The uniform trim was colored with B21, B24 and B37 for the shadow area. 
  5. The shoes were colored with B21, B24 and B37 for the shadow areas.  YR23, YR21, YR20 and Y00 was used for the basketball.
  6. The card was assembled and there you have it..... the Golden State Warriors!
