sketch: cross country skiing

The Olympics have been a joy to watch, and for me, a great way to practice figural drawing in action. Racing for the finish line, my drawing is of a cross-country skier going for the Gold.

Did you get to see the less popular spectator sports such as Biathlon and Cross-country skiing? And who knew that pushing a rock and sweeping, called Curling, could be such a nail-biting experience?

We are halfway through the Winter Olympics, and it’s been a blast already. My drawing is dedicated to the amazing ability and strength it takes to be an Olympic athlete, such as an alpine skier, under so much pressure. Which sport has you gripped to the edge of your seat?

The Olympics have come to a close, but winter carries on, here in the Northeast. It seems like we’ve had a snowstorm every week, this season. I know it’s not impressive compared to Colorado, but for New York city, it almost breaks records. The total this winter, so far, is 56.6 inches, making for very good conditions in skiing, snowboarding and snowball fights.

This is my drawing of a downhill skiier, inspired by the Olympic competition of the Super-G where speed and perfectly timed snow carving dictate the chance of winning a medal by hudredths of a second.

The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi added a new event called Slope Style for snowboarders and skiers. Slope style presentation is more inline, as opposed to alternating jumps on opposite ends of a half-pipe.

This is my drawing of a snowboarder doing a front grab Ollie. It is included in my set of Winter sport postcards in my store.

Women’s ski jumping is being introduced into the Olympics at Sochi.  The inclusion of women in ski jumping is a break though for the sport.  So look out for this event, since women are smaller and lighter, they can actually fly further than men.
