5x5 Acrylic and color pencil On illustration board

Here is the complete Clothing logo. I really like how it turned out. I tried to think of things in league baseball that were different in Sandlot baseball. The game is the same, the behaviors and habits sometimes change. I realized that in league baseball the umpire brushes off homeplate every so often so that it is visible to the players. In sandlot ball there is no umpire and the plate stays dirty save for a few quick attempts to kick the dirt off with your sneakers. I made homeplate dirty in the design. i think it complements not only the theme but the color scheme of the figure and his clothing.

It really feels good when you finish a painting and you know for sure that all of the decisions you made in the initial steps were the right ones. This is why the initial steps are the most important ;)
