yeeeeaaahhhhhh son. Decided to try some ink on some drafting paper/vellum-ish kinda paper. Kind of gives a cool effect but will probably look a lot better once I do a few more and get a hang of how the ink reacts to the shiny paper.

Ok so here's a picture of Valentino Rossi like I promised. It was pretty fun doing this one because his leathers are really colourful and its got his traditional sun and moon motif. He's always been a little artistically inclined, or at least appreciates it, so thats always caught my attention about him. This guy is widely considered the best and it's because of him that I got into watching MotoGP (even though he was on the Repsol Honda team back then). It's been a tough year on the Ducati for him, with development problems and recovering from his injury at the start of the season. His rivals better watch out for next year because when "The Doctor" gets the Ducati sorted out, they're all in trouble!

Finally took a lil time from work to do my own thing and I've been following the motoGP season pretty closely this season, so I decided "why not do a picture of Casey Stoner?" Even though I don't particularly like the guy, he can ride and I like the colours of the Repsol Honda team. I plan on doing a few more, probably of Rossi since he's my favourite and GREATEST OF ALL TIME!

pretty old and i thought i uploaded it with the rest of my facebook graffiti paintings from a while back but i guess not. i stumble upon while rifling through My Pictures on my comp and decided "meh, why not". looking back on it, it was pretty fun to do these things with the limited palette and brush sizes that the fb graffiti program offered. the small palette really forced you to fool around with the opacity of the colours (lol this one is black and white though). i think i might do another one sometime soon just for jokes and see how it goes.

I wast watching some moto GP highlights and a pretty cool battle between Rossi and Lorenzo at Motegi last year. It's good to be drawing for fun again and i really like the colours of the bikes and the leathers of the riders. There's always a splash of colours everywhere because of the different sponsors they have.
