Martin Castrogiovanni by ChrisWoottonArt Martin Castrogiovanni by ChrisWoottonArt
Martin Castrogiovanni "Castro" One of the World's and UK's best tight head props. He plays Rugby Union for Leicester Tigers and Italy.

"Castro" took 35 hours on A3 extra smooth Bristol Board, using HB & B2 Mechanical pencil, B-B9 graphite pencils, blending sticks, tissue, pencil erasure & blutac.

I loved doing the shirt. This is a commission piece for Bob who is huge fan. I can't wait to see it framed!

Thanks for visiting my Gallery.

Your work is so good I'm not sure if it inspires me or depresses me.I have tried to draw with a pencil and it looks nothing like this.I am impressed.
