Here are some sketches I did from the idea. I wanted to make a contrast between his nationality and club. I was thinking to draw Sterling, but I changed to Daniel Sturridge.
This is Daniel Sturrdge. He is an English player in Liverpool FC. He was pulled out from England national team due to injury. (I forgot when it was....) Ned liked the second sketch, which is simpler, and has more impact and direct transition of the article.
When I was working on final drawing, I accidentally dropped my ink jar, I almost got heart attack. But God saved me.
Here is a snapshot of final drawing.
And here is the final. I think it has been already published, but I haven't got the actual hard copy yet. I will post how it is when I receive it.
Thank you so much!
