This is a spot illustration I created a few months ago for a column in Road & Track Magazine. The article was about 24-year old rookie, Alexander Rossi winning the 2016 Indy 500 and his career to follow. Below is my process of making this illustration from sketch to final.
Sketches for this spot were challenging. I wanted to show Alexander Rossi winning, the amazing feat of winning the Indy 500, and his bright future that lies ahead of him. The sketch that depicted those three points the best was sketch #4 on the bottom right.
I only created a few pencil drawings for this illustration. They served as place holders and textural elements for the shapes I created digitally.
