Gives you wings by GrandMaster-J5 Gives you wings by GrandMaster-J5
(please feel free to take a look at the fullsize download to see details, dashboard etc)

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

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

This is fantastic, but for some reason I think the Red Bull X2010 is a sexier machine. But this, this is really trying to dishevel it in my books...

Is the X2010 the Gran Turismo car? If it is, my only problem with would be that the car would be SO good, that a driver wouldn't be able to drive it :D
The G-Forces would be insane!

Thanks for the comment, and glad you liked it :)

I know, right? I don't see how anyone can handle those G's... But someone apparently did, that car beat the F1 record on Nurburgring by over 20 seconds, which is absurd.

And no problem! Thanks for the stunning car! I see that image as, possibly, what the concept art for GT5 looked like. Keep it going!

doubtfull mate, as it's not a real car. :D It was a prototype made for GT5. The actual would cost way too much to build according to Adrian Newey. They only made a shell of the car, without spending realy big money.
Shame really. As I'd love to see what a machine could do with no limitations. Check this [link]

I'm sure on PS3 somebody beat the time, but no g-forces involved at all :)

Thanks again :)

Well, I didn't really want to post up the other Barbie certification stuff, or the girly catwalk suff I was doing, is it would completely ruin my street cred...

Did I actually just type that? :D

I might post up a contact sheet of that work at some point, as there was about 30ish images.

Next image I'm working on is a Tomb Raider pic, so boooobs ahoy! :D
Did I actually just type that too? :O
