Cameron Rupp – Texas Longhorns

19 07 2009

Thought I would throw together a few quick sketches. In quick, I mean a few hours and not the normal 16 hours like on the Jason Witten picture. Quick sketches are a lot of fun and it is a way for me to have a quick turn around on showing players from an event that just happened. For example, The College World Series.

Everyone knows, or should know by now, I am a big Texas Longhorn fan. Texas was within 1 game of winning a National Championship in baseball last month. I actually had a chance to watch most of the games and they are definitely fun to watch but at the same time a little nerve racking. Thought I would throw together some quick sketches of some of those moments from the 09 Texas Longhorn Baseball season. So I hope you enjoy the first of more to come.

Colt McCoy Drawing Finally Finished!

11 05 2009

OK…I know, I started this drawing around Christmas time and I just now finished up. Sometimes when I am working on large drawings I have to walk away for a day (or more like in this case) and then come back to it so then I see things that are not in proportion or needs more shading, or I start other projects like sketch cards and get side tracked.

Kinda like the Jason Witten 11″x14″ drawing I started 3 weeks ago. I am working on so much detail (definitely my most detailed piece yet) I have to take a break for a few days. Already have 10 hours in on the Jason drawing and just a little over half way.

I also didn’t want to finish the Colt McCoy drawing before the Fiesta Bowl because everytime I drew someone last year they lost the next game. So I think I am pretty safe now…lol. Enough rambling…on with the drawing!

Roy Williams Sketch Card

7 05 2009

Been working on a few Cowboy sketch cards, in no particular order. I liked the reference picture of Roy Williams so I decided to sketch it.

This is Roy Williams the Wide Receiver not the Safety…lol. I bet he has a breakout year for 09′.

Texas hangs on to beat the Buckeyes

9 01 2009

texas-longhorns-logo1Texas 24 – Ohio State 21 ohio-state-logo

Wow…a lot closer than it needed to be but Texas held off a stubborn Buckeye team that was ready and determined. I predicted it would be close due to Ohio State having a month to prepare but I didn’t think it would come down to the last few minutes of the game. It was definitely an entertaining game.

Do I think Texas ought to be number one…yes but being from Texas and being a fan I am a little bias. Not so sure anyone could get past Florida. Just found out a few moments ago the Sooner’s couldn’t get past them for the so-called National Championship. So I guess as Texas fans we will move on and hope that McCoy stays for next year and see where the Longhorns start out ranked in August. Thanks for the fun year Texas…took our minds off the Cowboy’s

Ok…thought I would finally post the Romo drawing I finished the week before they fell apart against Baltimore and Philadelphia. Hope you like!

Yes, I am a big Romo fan. I know he can be inconsistent but you have to keep in mind a few years ago this guy was from Nothern Illinois and was a 3rd string quarterback. We are the ones that have put him up on a pedestal and have set him up to fail.

I believe he still is the guy that gets us to a Super Bowl (especialy if Eli Manning can do it). I think the lack of the team concept along with head scratching play calling was the Cowboy’s downfall in 08. Oh don’t forget lack of discipline and leadership. You can go on and on, all I can say is bad games from Romo was still better and more exciting than watching a good game from Brad Johnson…oh and shall we remember the games with Quincy Carter a few seasons ago.

Big game tonight

#3 Texas vs #10 Ohio State

Prediction Texas 38 – Ohio State 24

Would not have predicted that close of a score but Ohio State has had a month to prepare.

I have almost finished up a Colt McCoy drawing, hopefully I will be able post soon. Seems everyone I draw has bad games…crossing my fingers the curse will be broken tonight

Wow…I was a little off on my prediction!

26 11 2008

Saturday Morning I predicted Texas Tech would win by 3

Texas Tech 38 – Oklahoma 35

Glad I am not getting paid to predict. Needless to say I turned the channel midway through the 3rd quarter. My hat goes off to Oklahoma, it was like they had Tech’s plays written on their arm bands. Wow…who would have thought that much of a blow out. That is why I hated to see Texas lose to Tech because in the past Tech isn’t known for winning the big games and Texas had already played the tough part of their schedule. Course I thought just maybe this year was different for Tech…nope still the same Tech.

What was disheartening was Tech getting away from their style of play. Harrell kept trying to force it deep when his receivers where open 10 to 12 yards down the field. Of course I would have happy feet too if I was getting drilled by the OU defense.

New prediction

Texas needs to score big over Texas A&M to have a chance on Big 12 championship and to push up the BCS ratings. Weird to say but OU needs to beat OSU to keep Tech from going.

Texas 52 – Texas A&M 17

Longhorns stay unbeaten!

19 10 2008

I would have to say the Texas Longhorns looked every bit the part of that No. 1 ranking. I thought this game would be a little closer but Texas was too strong too early. Colt McCoy was on fire throwing for 337 yards on 29 out of 32 pass attempts. What is really encouraging is the depth that Texas showed with their freshman and sophomore wideouts and secondary personnel.

Chase Daniel had a good numbers game passing for 318 yards on 31 out of 41 attempts. Mostly in the second half. Missouri just couldn’t climb out of a hole that Colt McCoy pushed them in along with the pressure from the defensive line in the first half. Fun and exciting game to watch, good to see Texas left no doubters about #1.

Texas 56 – Missouri 31

Drew the above picture during the game…thought it would be a fun comparison. Drew seperately and then added together in photoshop.
