Formula 1 has really caught my attention this season. It's not because of the cars (they've been dumbed down so much), but rather the interesting personalities that make up the racing driver lineup. This got me thinking about creating my own racing driver character. I had to choose a fox because they seem to match the cheeky playfulness so many racing drivers seem to exhibit. He drives a Le Mans Prototype (LMP) instead of an F1 car simply because I find them more interesting to design.
I had a lot of fun focusing on the design for this piece, I think my favourite bit is the flame retardant sock for his tail :3
Crits are always welcome and very appreciated!
