|Drawn and painted in Manga Studio 5 and Photoshop.|
I couldn't find any good reference picture of that damned Yankee as he cut the heart out of the mighty A's post-season with a flick of the wrist. I had to watch the low-res TV replay over and over and over, studying his pose at that terrible moment.
I utilized the 3D figure model in MangaStudio 5 and posed it as closely as I could to my studies, and then I was able to rotate and turn the model until I found a good angle. Then I searched for pictures of his head that were pretty close to what I needed as reference.
It's an amalgam of extensive reference and winging it. It came out alright, I think.
Here's how it looked in the paper.
Sorry to see you go, Jeter, you heartless, no good, pin-striped... um, 5-time World Series champion.
