Rubens at 257 by ZedderZulu Rubens at 257 by ZedderZulu
A rushed job, but I felt compelled to do a little something as tribute to Rubens Barrichello, who today officially became the most experienced driver in F1 history (i.e. the driver with most starts to his name)

I've always been a fan of Barrichello, a genuine,(ly) nice guy and a great driver. It is quite scary though considering that I got into F1 just as he was starting - which goes to show how long I've been following it now...

Took the liberty of including Riccardo Patrese, whose record has just been passed. ^^

Again, the cars a very rough around the edges (and all over in general, I hate drawing logos), I could have spent much, much more time (which I don't have) on them, and I do hope the portrait bares...some resemblance to Rubens, but anyway, this is my little tribute to one of my favourite drivers. Hope you likes :)

Several photos used as reference.

Now back to what I'm supposed to be doing...

Me too! He deserves driving a good fast car, and you can respect him for his experience and his passion for racing!

It was a pleasure watching him last race - shame he didn't finish a little higher, but it was still good :)

Yep, absolutely agree, he was fast, but it wasn't a lucky day for him.

I love your car paintings. In this particular piece I enjoy how the background blends right into the design of the cars. :clap:
