Hi, for xmas my girlfriend paid for her sisters partner to do this sketch for me. He's done many paid commission sketches for friends and by word of mouth, mostly of musicians and some actors, but this is only his second sports god...the other was MJ.

Tell me what you think!!!

Thats pretty sweet. I gave you a TP.

You have a  great girlfriend and her sisters partner is pretty talented.

Ray has a snarl on his face Ive never seen before!

Then again after hearing about his halftime tirade on the team against the kings....I can see it.

Thanks mate.

The artist is pretty cool. If it's a person he is familiar with he can usually do the sketch without something to go by, but for Ray Ray he used this photo (see the gnarl):


PS. For Ray, I love the phrase "It's all about preparation". The epitomy of Ray.

Awesome...just awesome.

So jealous. I have a basement which is my man cave and also my shrine to the Celtics. I need something like this.

I think it's awesome!  TP for sharing!  And that snarl is definitely something that Ray can bring out when he needs to as his teammates learned by not bringing it the other night!

Great drawing, that is the meanest look or most determined I 've seen Ray in a picture pose.   I've seen meaner on the court but never in a pic.

phenomenal. I went to art school for 4 years and still couldn't do that! It's a gift and a lot of hard work and patience for sure...not to mention skill. TP!

TP for the beautiful charcoal drawling.

Always nice to see some good artwork sometimes; it looks like the artist behind that painting is extremely talented.

Crazy good drawing.

Captures the icewater that runs through Ray's veins when he's nailing 3s in people's faces.

I just saw this....beautiful!!!  I don't think I have ever seen Ray without a smile and kind eyes in a picture before either!  You know the killer instint is there, but he doesn't show it externally much...
