WB Marketing Art, The Mach 5 cross-country racecar, SPEED RACER. Pencil, Magic Marker, Prismacolor.

Well... I reckon it's safe to post this now, seeing as the movie raced through its theatrical release as speedily as the title character's namesake. Heheh.

This was a freelance assignment, and they wanted me to render the famous racecar as a simplified hard graphic, for use as a design image. I remember the cartoon show as a kid, and I was quite fond of the Mach 5. It ranks alongside the Batmobile from the 60s "Batman" television show in high esteem. As faithful as the filmmakers were, they did, however, make changes to the iconic vehicle. But I must say that I didn't find the alterations objectionable at all here, purist that I usually am. I now proudly possess both toy versions, classic and contemporary. :)

What picture/s did you base your image on? I like your icon as well. Daryl Hannah has always been in my top three of the most beautiful women in the world.

Reference was provided by the filmmakers, and Warner Bros.

Thanks! Yeah, Ms. Hannah was quite the hottie back in the day, and she had a string of films that took advantage of this fact.

I based mine of a variety of sources, but then took a few liberties like actually putting in working doors and windows.

I love your drawing! I've had a major obsession with Speed Racer for a long time now, and I love the awesome machine that is the Mach 5. *casually glances at the model on her coffee table*

Thanks a bunch, Lindsey!

I know she races IndyCars, but do you also like Danica Patrick?
