Speed Racer by AlexGarner Speed Racer by AlexGarner
Cover to IDW's Speed Racer series. It was a challenge to combine a painterly style with anime-style characters. I think Alex Ross did a brilliant bridging of the two styles with his G-Force covers, the feel of which I wish I could have aped in some regard. Not sure if I'm completely satisfied with this piece, but I did appreciate educational value of the exercise nevertheless.

Why wouldn't Pops let Speed nor Rex be professional racers even if they prove themselves?

Really love it. It's kind of weird to love Speed Racer after so long, but his movie is inspirational and the cartoons make me smile.

I'll echo everyone else and say that this is just so darn amazing... The colors, the lighting--everything. I think you succeeded in combining anime and a more "tradtional," painterly style really well! :)

i think racer x came out the most in Alex Ross' style, but I love the lighting and painting on Speed and the family- i think it's the mix of the cartoony eyes with the painting that makes this piece kick! ^^
