Cool, you even display the Hot flirring Air above and behind the Engine, and you Show all the very fine Detail on that Car.

The only thing where you can easyli See that itīs an illustration and not a Photo is the Backround itself, even if this Shows a car at High Speed
and even that will effect a blurring effect
...the Viewer has the feeling that something is missing in the Backround, do you know
what i mean ?

But honestly, i would do it excatly like you
did it , only if i could

Overall very well Done!

Hi

Know what you mean. Th background decision was not to distract from the car so I did some editing. I've been told not t be too literal and copy verbatim.

The heat haze was interesting, I have no idea how I did it - it just happened; this is what happens when you paint when listening to a good TV or radio station! Happens all the time to me.

Thanks

Ahhh, i see you would keep this effect as a Secret, but that is only OK, cause every good Artist has some Secrets.

So you Paint and watch TV at the same Time ?
... but you have only 2 Eyes, did you ? ^_^
