Finished off the illustration today. Went mad and added a background and everything! The boys are having a playtime kickabout in the school yard. Am slowly warming to it, though if I were to do a similar pic I'd perhaps separate the bunch out a bit more - although if you've ever watched a bunch of young lads playing footy, they all tend to chase the ball almost as one! It must be a nature thing, a bit like birds all flocking and turning/diving together.
