I did a drawing of Noriyuki Haga last year and liked the way it came out so I decided to do a series of past and present moto racers. Naturally, I have to do one on Rossi, multi world champ.
I think by the time this was completed, I had about 6 layers in photoshop. I try to keep the layer count as low as possible. Going to have prints of this and Haga and the others for sale soon -

Next up: Mick Doohan, Joey Dunlop, and not sure but maybe Daijiro Katoh.
