It's been a while since I've posted anything, or even done any art that wasn't for a client or for work so this was a nice relaxing painting to do. I havent painted in so long, and yes I know it's digital but the feeling of painting, I havent done because my job is mostly flat cartoony figures. So in honor of the Forty Niners first game, and home opener, I wanted to paint a 49er.
Now anyone who has spoken to me before on my opinions on Colin Kaepernick have never been too high ever since he became the 49ers starting qb. Don't get me wrong I think the guy is a phenomenal athlete, but because of my background in coaching football, something irked me about superb athletes in a position where you have to be smarter than just a playmaker.
With that said, HE IS THE STARTER of my team, therefore, as a fan (who likes to be aware and not follow blindly) I will be hopeful for 49ers to have a good season behind their QB. He is now one of the veterans and leaders of the team with so many leaving this past offseason that it is truly his time to shine and step it up. Good Like Kaep, and bring that Lombardi Trophy Home.
