"We are Red Bull, we are in a unique position again this year and we are horny..."

Well here he is finally. I promised a few people that if Sebastian Vettel wins the F1 2010 World Championship, I'll draw him with his car (the RB6). And it almost didn't happen, he almost didn't win ...!

Seb is fun and amazingly fast - my favourite driver since after I watched him give Lewis Hamilton a tough time in Interlagos back in 2008. I was watching that race to see how Hamilton fared, but ended up seeing someone even more amazing. Seb is like 3 years younger than me as well. Even my mother knows about him. (She's not aware that his car is called 'Randy Mandy' though) :XD:

But uh..and I never liked his blonde moppy hairstyle. =P

Not to mention, RB6 has the most insane livery ever.

OMG this looks so AMAZING! Vettel is definitly one of the greatest drivers in F1 history and I believe, without a shadow of doubt that he'll win the drivers' championships this year as well!

Thank you, you have made my day!

Lara, many thanks for appreciating!

Love it so much. It's so realistic, I thought it was drawn by a professional, no offence. I mean, every last detail suggested a professional had to have drawn this, the detail is so real. Every thing about it suggests that the image needed some time to complete. I am guessing a good few hours, maybe even a day or two to get the details within a few nanometres of the actual Seb Vettel as well as the RB6, which was a hell of a car this season

Yes, I understand what you mean as it was the first time I've ever drawn an F1 car. But I treated this like any other drawing: it's mainly patterns or blending, even the tyres were. :)
No unfortunately not hours nor a day, it needed 3 weeks in total for me to complete - the car in particular was very frustrating to draw (needing 2 weeks). But I'm glad to get this goal of drawing the RB6 achieved.

Cool!
I like the composition, though i would have had the figure on the left and the car on the right.
Your proportions look good, and you did an excellent job on the foreshortening. The sponsors on the driver are very well executed.
You have a beautiful range of values here, with great use of value changes and transitions to show the planes and contours of both the man and his machine.
It's a sterling piece of work! :clap:

Thank you. Your thorough comment means a lot to me. :)
Yes, I knew as soon as I started shading, that the composition didn't seem quite balanced. I had wanted the car facing left and to collage with the figure facing right. But it was probably 'better' if the car was placed lower down the page. Or maybe Vettel should be at the top of the page, and car below, like how *niz1980 creates his drawings.

Your comment is very uplifting, and I truly appreciate how closely you observed this drawing.
For my next F1 driver portrait, I'll use your suggestion. That's if I want to draw an F1 car ever again ;)

It's just amazing, you're drawing skills are so good, and I love your style!
Seb looks so sweet here! :love: :aww: :giggle:
His expression and his hair are very well drawn *-* And all the details, I'm totally speechless! :omg:
And also Mandy is great :) ;)
I really like how you use a pencil and how smooth everything looks! Do you "wish" it or somehting like this?

Well, I love his "moppy hair style" how you call it :giggle:
I was near to a heart attack when I saw him with this short hair... this... really, really short hair xD

And did you use a photo as template or sth. like this?

Btw, this quote:
"We are Red Bull, we are in a unique position again this year and we are horny..."
~ did Sebi say this :XD:?
Lol, and we are horny =P

How about an Alonso next time ;) :eyes:?

I'm soooooo glad you like this. I think our funny conversations have helped a bit with the enthusiasm. ;)

Thank you for the kind words. I just wanted to make this the best drawing I've ever done - seeing as Sebi and his car are double champions.

To make the pencil smooth, I use a small normal paintbrush to blend the pencil shading together (the paintbrush is shown here: [link] ). I copied elements from many different photos, not just one.

:giggle: Seb's hair for the Australian grand prix was AWFUL, but I always laugh at it. I prefer his hairstyle for Monaco, it looked smart. ;)
Yeah! His newest hairstyle is hilarious. I'm sure he's dyed it red or something. :XD:
Or do you mean when he had a shaved head a few years ago??

YES. I think you know he said it. I could've chosen from millions of funny quotes. ;)

Of course I will draw Fernando Alonso. But next is Kimi. :drool:

Oh! Thanks for the tutorial, I will look at it later :) :la:

Really? Well, I like longer hair, well not long but... I think you know what I mean ;) But I like it how it is now :giggle:
Yes, thats exactly what I mean... the extremely short haircut.... something like shaved... it looks ike he wanted to compete with Hamilton oO :rofl:

I love his quotes xD But I never heard about this one, thanks for posting :la:

...tehe... :drool: *cough* Maybe I got some nice ref-photos for Alonso. But yeees... Kimi :3 :heart: I'm reallycurious about it! :)

No problem. Very soon I'll be able to start the Kimi drawing. ;)

Well... I think the longer hair made Seb look more like a nerd. Sometimes it's bright blonde, sometimes not.
"Compete with Hamilton", that's very funny :rofl: When I first saw Seb racing, he had that extremely short haircut as you said. So it was strange to see him in the next year with much longer hair. But the hair always makes me laugh. =P

Did you hear this one:
"I think there was too much water - the cars are quite low, so you end up swimming more than driving."

Incredible O.O. The details on his car... and... the so epically realistic look on Vettel... wow, with this is very clear. And smooth :3.

I also respect and like a lot Vettel, one of my favourite drivers of nowdays (since I'm more 'retro' and I prefer 80s and 90s XD).

Good job! ;)

See you! :3

Thank you so much. :aww: One of my goals this year was to draw the RB6, but as soon as I saw the livery, I just knew it was a going to be punishing. =P Luckily I enjoy drawing technicals things. It was also funny drawing Vettel looking as his 'normal' self.

Yes, when people think of F1, they envisage the Senna and Prost days on TV, and that particular car of the era. So I'm glad you like him - I reckon he's really lightened-up modern F1 with his carefree attitude too.

Many thanks for appreciating!

Hehehe... Senna and Prost days on TV. I'm the kind of person who says: "I wish I would have been watched those times", although I just was born in 90s and... putting it simple: I was just a one year old baby when Senna passed away... >__<...

Anyway, since a daughter of my years (?), I like my times, as well XD.

Sorry for my horrible English XD.

See you! :3

Aww I know how you feel. That is the nature of the sport, if we miss one grand prix from history, then there's no real way of experiencing it by looking at old footage. Senna vs Prost was epic. I had to make do with growing up watching Damon Hill.... but it was Michael Schumacher (Part 1) which put me off F1 during the late 90s.

But yes, F1 is very special now and with new exciting drivers.

Please don't worry about your English. :aww:

Yes, he's certainly lightened-up F1 in the last 3 years, the reason why I'm so obsessed with the sport now. And.. he's made getting pole positions an artform too.

I'll be drawing another portrait soon. :)

I'm guessing you're from Germany? I wish I lived there anyway.
When Vettel won, he was even more popular than Angela Merkel. (Hahaha) :XD:

SuperSebi? XD
What a nice nick! I don't know what the TV or newspapers are calling him... I'm sorry ___`; But I know, German TV or newspaper can give people really stupid names.

Yes, I'm from Germany. Do you wanna live here because of Vettel? I just know that he lives in a pretty small town. So it would be pretty boring if he's not in town I guess.

Oh really? yeah that can be right... I mean, Vettel is more an eyecatcher as Angela Merkel :giggle:

Mhhh... I'm not sure about that. When I finished my trainig it could happen that I have to draw a car :cries:
But my art teacher is always telling me "you really like complicated things and details, right?"

You're welcome :D

Haha.. actually I invented that name, but I was kind of guessing how he would be nicknamed in Germany. He used to be called Bubi Schumi - that was hilarious.

:faint: Hahaha.....Vettel lives in Switzerland anyway. X'D
No actually, I think the quality of things are better in Germany than in England. Like the football team is much better...

... :omg: Your humour is great. German humour is brilliant isn't it. ;)

Aawww don't worry too much. Believe me, a car is simpler to draw than a person. And you're already great at drawing people. :nod:
