dion lewis - the sweetest smile. wear ankle braces cause odds are he’s juking you out. speed demon. full of heart. got a little break last season but ready to come off the block sprinting.

malcolm butler - the super bowl savior. he did That™. not a one hit wonder! unless he’s trying to knock the ball away from his competition. deserves everything and then some. went to disney world and brought all the magic home with him.

jamie collins - confirmed superman. he is so fast, he’ll get there before you do even if you have an hour head start to run 5 feet. great at reading people. my man is a physic.

logan ryan - a prince. his family is goals. been compared to bambi because he’s just that light on his feet.

ryan allen - he is secretly the reason we always succeed. his punts go into the next state. he has a standard and never lets it drop. a real life angel on earth.

james white - his nickname is white lightning for a reason. he’ll juke you out of your shoes, run back around, hand them to you, and still make it into the end zone before you pull up your sock.

martellus bennett - an artist on the field and off it. his wife and daughter are gorgeous. he’s basically a little kid at heart. so sweet, his smile makes anyone melt.

Redid Finn… less thrilled with how he came out.  Mixed feelings about the underlying sculpt - on one hand, the sculpt is pretty solid… but they sculpted REALLY HUGE eyebrows on him.  If I ever repaint another one (or if I decide to do this one over), I’m sanding those off first because they make it hard to do a realistic repaint.

He was an uncooperative model, but there are some cool things in his repaint.  His mouth is particularly nice - a lot of people with dark skin have a really gorgeous deeper pigmentation just outside of their lips, and I worked really hard on getting that here.  I think it came out really nice in person, though it just didn’t photograph well.  The jacket is also pretty nicely shaded, and then I gave it a semi-gloss finish to make it look more like leather… and in person, it really kind of does. :D

Now if I could just find a Rey. :/
