Keep Moving Forward by alphaleo14 Keep Moving Forward by alphaleo14
3 years after i did my [link] it's about time i do another alphaleo's bike art. i started around end of 2007 and i did posed the line art and WIP on my last few uploads and after 6 months on and off i finally managed to get it finished.

The biggest achievement i had this time is painting the tire's knots, i have to admit it was the most boring process, even with the magical 'copy and paste' function, it's still proves to tiring and boring. And it's a good thing i still remember to paint all the effects like my previous bike art but with twice among of the details this time. overall i'm glad how the final finishing come out, 6 months of hard work paid off.

Yeah! love the bike, GT Marathon carbon. It's the next Generation GT i-drive bike, with a full group set of the new Shimano XTR, Fox suspension and love the new white GT jersey. I roughly estimate it's overall bike weight is around 24 pound, price wise......forget it........ i don't think i can even afford it, i can only wished in my dream riding it.

lastly, Jetix project was finally done! another achievement to be added up to my portfolio.

Some minor updates, i rework the eyes that some people commented it's too flat, and some logo changes.

new, version 2.0 [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-07-25
Keep Moving Forward by Raymond Yap, also known as *alphaleo14, is one of the most awesome deviations I have ever featured with a DD. I have been watching this talented artist since I joined dA years ago, and also had the chance to visit him in Malaysia and spend a week at his place. When he says this picture has been done over 6 months, believe me, he have worked hard, and it's worth a full view, so enjoy! ( Suggested by RaptorArts and Featured by skifi )

I prefer the XC type flat bar with longer bar ends(classic onza type)

The bike you've drawn in this is amazingly realistic. At first I thought it was photoshopped in, but it wasn't, and that's just real talent. I love this piece :)

This is very, very pretty colour- and lighting-wise. I really like the theme you chose as well (as in: Don't give up! Keep going!). Even though the anatomy and perspective isn't 100% correct in certain places, I still love it!
You definitely get a fav and support from me!
