I'm not the greatest artist in the world, not in Missouri, not in the town where I live. That said, I've learned quite a bit about drawing and painting for my grandmother; I'm no slouch with a pen or pencil. After not touching a utensil with the thought of making artwork for about three years now, I've picked the hobby back up, and am looking to make something big: A color match mural of pictures from around the country of College Basketball.
The process is so simple that one of you guys could probably do a better job than me. I simply take a picture from a magazine page/ photo paper, cut out a section or two, replicate the drawing with pencil, and then match the colors of the picture with colored pencil. Here are some examples of the process, which happen to be parts of the mural/ collage/ whatever the heck it is.
I currently have those four photos, taken from an old sports magazine, but I'm eager to get more in the mix. I hoping for upwards of 15-20 pictures to semi-replicate, possibly even more, and I refuse to use any team more than once, at least as the focal point of the photo. Once all of the pictures are done, I'll glue them all on a giant poster board and frame it. Boom, the mural will be complete, and I will dance.
Obviously, I've got to have a Mizzou picture somewhere on this mural, which is where you guys come in. I want the Mizzou picture to be front and center, the focal point of the whole mural, and to do that there's going to have to be a lot of action going on in the shot, there has to be some striking colors (Hmmm, KU has some colorful unis...) and then outside of that, I just have to make it bigger than the other pictures and put in the center. I'm looking for a striking, damn good picture to use, and I know you guys could give me a damn good selection to work with.
So, I'll include a poll of which Mizzou great I should enshrine in my mural, and if you guys could post any good looking pictures in the comments section, then that would be much appreciated. Thanks, guys and gals!
