Eveyone knows that sports is a concept that millions of men, woman, and children follow on a regular basis. The fact is there is die hard fans, and then there is what you call occassional fans. Today instead of making a lesson on the typical player from the sports of football, baseball, basketball, or even hockey, I thought a tutorial on something different would be appreciated especially if it was out of the ordinary. Now having said that, I am going to show you "how to draw a tennis player", step by step. I personally think that tennis players are underrated, and I think it's because the sport is so sedatted. Sitting up in the bleachers as you watch two players go at it with a racket and ball as they move back, forward, and side to side on a long court that is covered with green paint, and a long mesh or netted fence. The player came out pretty cool, and I have to say that I had a rather fun time as I drew out a character in action as he is getting ready to hit the tennis ball. Anyways, you will have fun too as you learn "how to draw a tennis player" from scratch. I only have two more tutorials that needs to go up so stay tuned in to see what they will be.
