Well, I wanted to comment on this picture a long time ago, but I never knew what to write, but now I'll do it :D

I really have to say, I've seen so many good drawings before, but nothing special most of the time, but I never saw a drawing that impressed me so much.
I don't know what it is, that makes this picture so special, but you did it perfektly...

Btw. I always thought he didn't win a race last year :?

LOL! You're correct. He didn't win a single race last year. Guess I should fix that huh.
I appreciate the kind words about the drawing. I was very patient with this one. I didn't keep track of how long it took but I just kept building values very slowly. I used a cotton swab for the majority of the shading plus the smooth bristol paper made for a nice finish to the piece.

Indeed I'm an avid fan myself, more of a Button fan though :omfg:
You must be very passionate about it ^^ Very talented too.

Yes, not so much of an Alonso fan really. He just sort of ended up being the subject of this one. Ayrton Senna was my favorite of all time. As far as current drivers go, I don't really have a standout favorite. I'm just a huge fan of the sport. It's hard to narrow it down.

Totally true, it's hard to pick a favourite
I used to be a big fan of Michael Schumacher, only because he was a cheating liar, was fun watching his antics.

That's a good looking drawing close iup to the driver. I liked the Renault cars last year. Of course this year he is with Ferrari.

Well a casual fan anyway. :) I used top follow F-1 more closely in the 90s. Your recent work has given me good excuse to catch up on what's going on these days.

I think you'll like what's going on this season. No single driver or constructor is running away with the title. Nip and tuck the whole way through.

Oh my!
I love the close cropped composition with so many design elements coming in and out of the picture plane at interesting angles.
Your proportions are great, and once again your foreshortening is very convincing.
You have your full range of values here working for you here. And stellar use of value changes to show all the the planes and contours once again. The fade to light as that lion logo comes up and then curves away from the viewer is very convincing and sets up the helmet very well.
This is a very strong piece of work!
It's another sterling piece of work from you once again! :clap:

Thanks a lot! To tell the truth...that lion got beaten up pretty badly before it got to where it is now.LOL I appreciate you diving into things and really looking it over.

Thanks Bill. I know what you mean. Mansell, Piquet...the list goes on and on. I sure hope Webber can be added to the list as well before it's all said and done.
