The conversation between McEnroe and Evert is amazing too Also Sam's face reaction "I mean, why..". Brilliant.

For that reason it's as important to get their technique right as it is to capture a good facial likeness, particularly when drawing signature shots. If I were to draw Ivanovic hitting a forehand like Wozniacki, it wouldn't be Ivanovic.

It's also a really enjoyable challenge to try and get the players' style of play right.

Having said all of that, there was one episode where all of the action panels were taken from photographs of a player who didn't appear in the episode at all. I wanted great pictures of them sliding on clay and, good though Robby and Carla are, their slides just weren't spectacular enough for what the cartoon required. I needed another player to model these shots on.



There was only one option really

I must say I enjoyed doing the tantrum. I thought it would be straight forward, having done the "Smash Your Racquet Like A Pro" guide last year but it turns out that Vika's racquet smashing technique is very unconventional and really rather poor. Feet together, no forward weight transfer, bending at the back and bashing away at the ground with a semi-western forehand grip. It's no wonder she gets so many injuries.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Episode 19, Asderaki Lays Down the Law!

I love this so much, well done! A lot of talent.

I agree, those fine movement and details of each players makes this so sweet (That Jankovic BHDTL is spot on!). I also love how Vika is the villain of the series. It would be good if another top 20 player joins in the evil actions with her, makes it all the more fun!

Thank you!
