For those who know me, I'm a huge F-Zero fan and if you didn't know that already... I hope it's painfully obvious now! This was one of the most elaborate things I've ever worked on, I havent taken on crazy composition blending mash up before this so this is a new milestone for me, so much of time went into thinking on what I want to convey and it's changed a lot from start to finish!

Big freakin prints - society6.com/firebornform/f-ze…

The song that inspired me to do this piece. www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkIyzl… by Powellman
The sketch I started with firebornform.deviantart.com/ar…
The musician who's doing the rocking F-Zero cover for the album. vomitron665.bandcamp.com/album…
And the guy who got everyone together to create a smash-bros tribute, the main force behind www.shinesparkers.net/

Fall will be a hard wait for the music as it has a lot of great variety...
but you can check out all of the awesome artwork from the others in the meantime ;)

Why does Nintendo neglect this franchise?

That looks amazing. I especially love how it sort of all wraps around like that, like in the games. All the colors are so vibrant as well.

I loved F-Zero X on N64. The OST, gameplay, even the 60 fps (a rarity on that console, I think). I still have F-Zero GX on GC, but I didn't have much of a heavy feeling to that one for some reason...
Though I think it would be terrifying and cool at once to be piloting one of those machines. lol

I've noticed how you threw in references to virtually every F-Zero title. The giant skull is from F-ZERO X's Devil's Forest, a few tracks from GX. On the bottom right, I see one of those nameless machines from the original F-ZERO. And to the top left, is that the Dragon-Bird from GP-Legend?

This is incredible.
Great job !
It's the best F-Zero fan made image i ever seen,
and i know what i say 'cause i'm working on a F-Zero card game, so i looked for a lot of illustrations on the web.

In this picture we can feel the tension of a F-Zero racing, and you have integrated all the F-Zero X caracters (i think, i didn't really checked ^^) and most of the F-Zero worlds.  The gathering of all these elements gives a psychedelic feeling, typically the F-Zero spirit !

Hey, is it cool if I use this for a cover of Fire Field i'm making? I will of course credit you and give a link to your account.

Thanks :)
FirebornForm's avatar
Cover of Fire Field? I approve, there's really very little F-Zero remakes outside of Mutecity and Bigblue for the 1000th time.
Make sure to link me to your remix when you're finished!

I remember my brothers and I played F-Zero X frequently our favorite racers were Octoman, Bio-Rex and Samurai Goro. The music from that game was also epic as hell. :D
FirebornForm's avatar
X definitely had sweet music! The rivalry we had with friends was Bio-Rex, Baba, Goroh but mainly it was me and my brother in both Fire Stingrays. :D

If they make a new F-Zero I'd like it to be more stylized and somewhat inspired by Heavy Metal. Imagine driving through a giant flaming skull as the electric guitars rock out!
FirebornForm's avatar
I dont think that would be F-Zero anymore, kind of like a Twisted Metal racer instead. I do love me some Twisted Metal though so I'd be all for something crazy like that!
