 Thanks guys. I just watched the playback myself, and I'm wondering why on earth I used that background, lol.

 Oh and, FYI, for anyone that may be unfamiliar--this is supposed to be Walter Payton. The greatest football player ever. Period.

 Matchless portrait, as usual, IG, but what is the title? A nickname?

 Yep. Walter Payton got the nickname "Sweetness" in college.

 Your talent with ink really works well on TD, it gives you the ability to build up perfect images with little to work with. This is amazing and will stay in favourites on top of the pile.

 I began piecing it together on a Friday afternoon, took a break over the weekend and finished it up Monday morning. All together, probably about six hours or so.

 OMG, I know "Sweetness" is looking down & smiling. I knew Walter & his nickname was perfect, always "Sweet" & was such a loss of an incredible player & man. I am from Chi town & not only did we love & adore him but so did the world. Thanks for honoring
