At the track final color by Baron-Engel At the track final color by Baron-Engel
So after all the preliminary work here is the final result. Of course along Rosemary I could not resist putting a few cameo appearances by my characters into background along with myself. In the end I was very happy that the client was so patient with me since I started on the final colors of this picture right when BackBreaker Studios crashed and burned. This unfortunately put me in the worst case of artist funk I had ever experienced. Eventually I was able to overcome it and finish this commission.

As usual for me the piece is a mixed media collection of colored pencils, marker, technical pen and gouache on vellum finish Bristol Board. Image size is about 16"x 22". I hope you have found this start-to-finish presentation interesting.

I like the way this came out. Detailed in fur,machinery and clothes. The detail of the little mouse at the motorcycle's wheel is awsome too. Love it :) The color is well thought out and the detail with the people in the background is good.Well done wih the shading and highlighting.The background came out pretty good.Although it seems that everybody kind of has the same hair style,like that fluffy part of the front hair looks similar to most of the others in this art.In overall you did a good job on this peice of artwork and keep up the awsome work.
What do you think?

Fascinating to see it all come together, and it makes sense now, why you charge so much for commissions. I do mean this as a compliment.

That was part of the reason for doing these postings was help people understand what goes into some commissions and why they can cost so much.

Do I see Jessica Knight at the barrier?

Was there ever a decision as to what lucky rider got Rosemary to provide their shade?

Warning!
Bike nerd nit-pick

Buells had the belt drive replaced with a standard racing chain and sprocket for easier gearing ratio changes.  

The fact that I can tell it still has the belt drive is a testament to your attention to detail and expert renderings.
Good work!

Absolutely amazing work. Though I have to wonder how tinies in your world aren't assumed to be suicidal running around a race track's pit area and expecting not to be run over. ;p

Most mice would not do what Brandy is doing in this picture for exactly that reason. However certain headstrong, confident, and thrill-seeking mice and rats will mingle amongst bigums like this.
