Carmelo Anthony

nba trade carmelo anthony married lala sister death drawing art caricature new york sketch
Elite NBA player Carmelo Anthony. He has one of the smoothest jumpers in the game right now. A lot of trade talk evolving around him so we will see. More importantly he just lost his sister. The grieving process is a difficult one for us all and I pray that God comforts him as he goes through his. I can't imagine what I'd do if I lost my sister. Deepest thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.


Well I didn't like my first sketch of Melo at all. So I decided to tweak things a bit to give me a stronger likeness. As an artist there are gonna be times where you just don't get it right. This was one of them. Below you'll see a stronger sketch of Melo. Here's a list of improvements I made:
  • Headband wasn't big enough (too much of his forehead was showing)
  • Are under his chin and to his neck was too thin. Made it look like he was in highschool. I added more "fat" to this area
  • I tilted his smile up more towards the right side of his face
  • I also enlarged his nose and tilted it upwards to the right
