Painted in photshop CS4, as a present for my Uncle's birthday, so Happy Birthday! :D

I've painted this using a daft amount of photo ref, and a dafter amount of time :D
(fullsize image is huge, as I was printing a poster from it)

Red Bull over the last couple of years have made in incredible car, and the 2010 RB6 F1 car, is I think one of the best handling cars I've ever seen in F1 history! (so far anyway :D)
This video sums it up really. (check the last corners. Flat out withone hand on the wheel!) [link]

I've not painted anything like this before, so I'm still pushing myself with new things to learn as I go.
Hope you like it :)

cool work
tbh i think that there is slightly too much of the caricature look going on by seeing how you done the reflections and such to remain soft and extremely colorfilled :P

but nonetheless, really cool as it is :P

Thanks :)
I was kind of going for that feel though, as I wanted it to be a bit different to a photo. Otherwise, I'd have just given my Uncle a photo :D

haha well put :D
for making that perfect i think you could sharpened the image athmosphere a bit but it is only an opinion of me and i still think the original piece rock :D

like you can propably see from my gallery my style varies also quite a bit from totally random "feeling pic" to sketchy looking ones to somewhat "realistic" :D

well,anyways just to put it shortly it is great and fresh to see these different kind of styles :P

Even though I'm a McLaren fan, I have to fav this 'cause it's awesome :D

I'm a bit of a McLaren fan aswell. Sshhhh. :D (but that's partly because I worked with them on a series of books. I should put some pics up from the book launch. It was amazing!) But I can't help but admit that this is one of the best F1 cars I've ever seen. The vid link in the discription says it all. That car is a beast.

Thank you for the fave. Glad you liked it :)

wow you worked with them, that's amazing :clap:
Yep, it's painfully obvious that they did an amazing job with that car, it's a masterpiece. I just hope it won't dominate too much 'cause I really enjoy seeing a good battle for P1 :D

You're most welcome :nod:

or maaaaaybe Forza Ross Brawn? :D
The Mercedes was looking ok in the final sessions.
But...Red Bull is still the team to beat. that 2010 car was amazing! Best handling F1 car I've ever seen...when it was on the track and not broken :D

McLaren is looking rubbish again though. They really need to sort out pre-season testing instead of playing catch up :D

Red Bull is a great car, thanks to Adrian Newey, he's really a genius.
This year I think it will be a fight between Them and Ferrari.
Alonso wants his revenge from the last gp of the last season.
Btw congrats for this picture!

Thank you very much :)
It's going to be an interesting season I think. Alonso is still for me the best driver out there, but his ego is a little too big sometimes and I do enjoy seeing it knocked down from time to time, same as younger Schumy :D

It should be interesting to see how the rule changes will effect things too. I can't wait for the start in Oz!

as an Italian though, shouldn't your eyes be firmly on a Mr Rossi on a well know red bike? :D
Unfortunatly, right now it looks like Rossi is thinking "Casey, how the hell did you ride this thing" :(
It'd be great to see him fly on that Ducati, but the Hondas are looking amazing. Plus Dan Ped and Casey are flying too.

Bring on a GREAT season of Motorsport!!! It's been too long already!! :D

It will be a great season for sure!
In Italy we are all waiting for Rossi on the mighty Ducati, but really for him it will be really hard this year.
I'm also curious to see what Simoncelli will be able to do. I can't wait for the first race tomorrow!

The Doctor done good I think :D
But Stoner on that Honda!? Damn!!

He's going to be tough to beat.

Great race. I like Stoner even if i'm a Ducati supporter.
Stoner looks really the best this year, Maybe the championship will be a fight between him and Lorenzo? It's early to say that but Pedrosa and Dovizioso semm to be a little later from them.
I hope the doctor may race for the podium in the next races, but for him it will be a very hard and long season.

Seb just made that look FAR to easy! I hope the other teams can close down in the Red Bulls QUICKLY!
I was a little shocked at McLarens pace, but they're always good in Oz anyway.

(it's probably a bad time to tell you, but I'll be supporting McLaren, but I have a good excuse, I worked on a bunch of Kids books for them :D)

I'm MORE than sure Rossi will be on the top step this year. Only thing I'm worried about, is the Ducati's strength was it's speed, and those two works bikes were the slowest ones out there in a straight line. :s
