Pencil Drawing of Muhammad Ali

This drawing of Ali is based on a photo of his fight against Sony Liston. It was a commissioned piece, and initially I though it was going to be entirely black and white, but I eventually decided to add a bit of color, and it turned out nice. Another challenge was the audience because I didn’t want to draw every detail nor simplify it too much, so I worked gradually till I found the right balance.
