#129 Illustration Friday: Stripes

Stripes - Pencil drawing w/Photoshop 8x7"

My first ever Illustration Friday submission! I had a lot of fun with this one - it took about 4 hours to finish. Did a couple of preliminary sketches to establish the pose and the construction of the car. A little Photoshop magic (well, a lot really), and there you go! 1960's race car action!
Looking forward to more of this Illustration Friday stuff!

Fun! I like this, but kinda wish he wasn't smoking, since it's kinda a super-cool guy and pose and car and all...

He he, well Lee, I understand your concern, and I am not a smoker, but in order to maintain the period accuracy of the piece, I figured that one would be hard-pressed to find a race car driver in the 1960s who *didn't* smoke. So #11 is enjoying his Marlboro or whatever it is.
But thanks for your comment just the same!
