Football running back charcoal drawing by sports artist John Robertson
The running back in this charcoal drawing looks like he is dragging a leg. The question is, is he going to make the hole opened up for him for a brief second. The linemen, whether offensive or defensive are grunting out the yardage. They are the foot soldiers with the spiked helmets on their head while the running back wears a golden sword. You can chart the success of any team by their offensive or defensive line yet it is the running backs (and quarterbacks) that get to wear the golden plumage on their head. Art. Preliminary charcoal drawing (for a large-scale painting) of a running back about to hit the line, by artist John Robertson is 18" x 24" on paper.
