you obviously have not even watched competitive dirk biken.. if anything shes UNDER armored because she doesnt have a neck brace.. i do down hill mountain biking and i can tell you that whenyou launch off into the empty air and come down hard your glad for ever penny you spend on that padding
cant do that if you land wrong and you snap a joint or a rib cause you where stupid and didnt wear gear..then you just look like a moron. it'd be like a soldier going out with out a bullet proof vest to prove he's tough..your not tough..your just stupid
I love how your cars/bikes always look so realistic. I still draw them like a 5 year old And I'm astounded by the level of detail, not just on the bike, but on the suit and in the background. The studded collar is also a nice touch.
Considering all the colors used, it'd be easy to have one color stand out too much and throw off the entire balance of this pic, but my favorite part is just how balanced the colors actually are. Nice job there.
