Someone down the pub challenged me to do this, I said I couldn't, then I went and proved myself wrong. Based on a low res photo off the web, re-drawn as an A1 sized poster. Rendered with Photoshop and Wacom tablet. Come to the conclusion challenges are all well and good, but commissions tend to generate more money.

It is so well done that some people will either mistake it for a touched up photo or a paint over. There is however some serious skill gone into creating this :)

Well, in some respects it does have both of those techniques!
A broad definition of a paint over might be a "photo retouch to with an inch of the photo's life" where all the original photo has gone and it has morphed into an illustration, and the ARE elements of that in there. I forgot to mention there is some Adobe Illustrator work in there as well, mostly the fairing sections and some parts of the wheels/tyres.
The challenge was, a) to take a small image and make it a big one, b) to make it hard to tell if it was a photograph or an illustration. As it's based on a photograph it makes the lighting a details a lot easier to render as the "answers are already there for you". There is also the advantage of working in Photoshop as opposed to traditional paint were corrections and experimentation is slower. There was a problem with some parts where the detail of the original, (which I think was less than 1,000 pixels wide), had to be transferred to an image over 11,000 pixels wide - some detail is pure invention and other detail I didn't bother to put in at all.

Allthough there is no money in challenges, the satisfaction of completion should be your not only did it but did it with greatness.
