Default Juan Rosales Sketch Card/Art Thread

Hello all,

In various subforums, I've posted samples of my sketch cards that I've contributed to various card sets. However, since I've noticed other artists creating their own art threads, I too wanted to have one centralized location where I could show previews of recently-finished pieces, as opposed to littering various sub-forums with individual threads.

Also, this is where I can be found in case you'd ever like to request a commissioned piece. I chose this subforum because I create sports art is my area of interest, and I create artwork that is not specific to one single sport.

My first official sports set- Leaf 2013 Best of Hockey (I created 37 cards for this release):





Leaf 2013 Masterworks (I created 100 cards for this release):




Pastime Cards 2013 Enshrined Edition (I created 20 cards for this release):




Leaf 2013 Best of Football (I created 50 cards for this release):




Pastime Cards 2013 Milestones Edition (I create 20 cards for this release):




Leaf 2014 Legends of the Diamond (I created 45 cards for this release):




Pastime Cards 2014 Signed Hall of Fame Card Edition (I created 20 cards for this release; I just finished these cards, and the set will be released at the end of February):



Thanks for looking!

Here's a sketch card I just created of MMA star Joe Lauzon. Done as part of a commission.

Thank you! Much appreciated. Currently working on a top-secret project, but I'll share once I'm able to.

I could be mistaken, because it has been awhile since I saw it, but if memory serves correct you did an amazing Tony Gwynn for the masterworks, with the dotted shade effect. One of my favorites of all of the arts that I saw from that set.

I actually didn't do any Tony Gwynn cards for Masterworks; in fact, I don't even think he was on the checklist (which is a shame; I loved Gwynn growing up and would love to have drawn him!).

My bad, it had been awhile since I saw the card I was referring to, it was actually the Thurman Thomas that really struck me when I saw it.

Ah, yes! I was really happy with how it turned out. Thanks for the kind feedback!

Speaking of which...it seems as though the person who pulled the Thomas card is selling it on eBay: 2013 Leaf Masterworks Thurman Thomas 1 1 Auto Autograph Sketch by Juan Rosales | eBay

I own the Milt Schmidt card, and I have to say it's even more impressive in person. Great work!

Thanks for the feedback, and I'm glad that it made its way into your hands! It has been one of my favorite cards that I've ever done for a set.

Nice job, you've been busy, man! I should follow your lead and get moving on some of those blanks I've still got.

Thanks. I still have some more blank APs that I need to draw on. Been busy with some commissions lately.

That stippling takes a toll on my fingers at times! I often find that my hand gets sore after finishing a piece.

Been trying to mess with Copics lately, but I just can't get the hang of markers. I don't know how you do it, Brad.

Here are a few personal sketch cards I have recently completed. Most were done in either graphite or pen & ink stippling, except for the Mattingly, in which I bravely attempted the use of markers (something I've never been good at):

JJ Hardy, Don Mattingly


Wade Boggs, Joe Lauzon


Mule Suttles, Buck Ewing


Derek Jeter, Christy Mathewson
