GN Vitesse

Managed to get a few hours drawing in last week - I'm a bit rusty. I tried using Bristol board which is lovely to draw on - but not the best at taking the paint.

The car is the terrific GN Vitesse - a cyclecar chassis coupled with an enormous 8.2 litre V8 Curtiss Aero engine. In the background is the Anzani GN trials car.

Rocket Test Rig

Here's a quick sketch of what's in the workshop at the moment. It's the test-rig that will be connected to the biggest rocket ever fired in Britain. The huge tank will be filled with HTP and pumped into the rocket by the Cosworth formula 1 engine.

I did the sketch in pen, then photographed it and added the colour with the iPad. Works pretty well as a process - saves booting up the old desktop and scanner - I'll be doing it again.
