Shark and Matt by MattK1989 Shark and Matt by MattK1989
LONG overdue gift art for *SharkHarrington :iconsharkharrington:. Thank you for being so patient and I hope you like it :aww:. So here's us, at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California. Shark and I are posing for a photo while waiting for the cars to come around. Shark has been busy this day, taking his own pics and helping me out with my own :).

But seriously, if you like racecars, classic American rides, and lovely women, go check out *SharkHarrington. He may not be as well known as some guys like AmericanMuscle or Swanee, but the quality of his work is just as good as theirs, plus he's an awesome guy to talk to.

I guess this one turned out okay. I need to work on shading and blending though, badly X[

I do not own Mazda or Goodyear.

Pretty cool drawing. :) I used to not like that course so much back when I used to play Gran Turismo 4. :P

I've only played Gran Turismo 2 lol. It is a tough track though, and thanks for the compliment :)

You're welcome! I can assure you that in whatever version of Gran Turismo or other car racing game, that track is always a complicated one! ;)

It is a tough track, and that corkscrew..... it can be evil on the video games. I liked playing it in Gran Turismo 2, it was incredibly difficult to lose control of your car in that game. So it was pretty forgiving in most cases. UNLESS, you were driving that TVR Speed 12. That car took balls and an immense amount of skill to handle, don't think I could of pulled it off on this track. That car was so badass IRL though; over 1000 hp, 240 mph top speed, 0-60 in the low 3 second range, and an engine built by combining 2 TVR Tuscan Speed 6 engines.

Heh, no sh*t. But personally, I'm a fan of imports and other simple cars, Like Mitsubishi's Evo VIII, Hyundai's Genesis Coupe, Mini John Cooper Works, and Ford Focus. I love this cars more than high speed racing machines. But going over 200 is fun once in a while.

That's good! I mean, I can't see myself drawing a turn such as this one without a reference picture. Either way, I know someone that'll be impressed by that.

I actually used to be against using references ^^;. But ever since I've gotten over that it's been very helpful.

Yeah I used to have the same mentality too until one of my design teachers told me that it's not a crime. Since then, my design, and drawing ability has really progressed. :nod:

How awesome is this!  Matt, I am floored.  We are finally hanging out together, even if it's only in a virtual sense.  Laguna Seca is my favorite track to shoot motor sports, there are many openings for the photographer if you are patient enough to find them.  Maybe one day we'll get the chance to recreate this scene for real.  :+fav:  :+fav:  :+fav:  :+fav:  :+fav:

I've always liked Laguna Seca, good racetrack with a lot of action. Meeting you one day in person would be badass, but yeah I guess this'll do for now! :ahoy:

There's a beer tent just a short hike up the hill from where we are standing.  The first round is on me, dude.  :beer: :beer:
