Not really a re-upload but an upgrade version of my [link]
it all happen at the end of year when i found out GT bicycle have released a new color for my dream bike GT Marathon team. Then suddenly shimano XTR released it's upgrade Yumeya kits with gold coated finishing. i was like drooling with all the new parts, so i decided to do some repainting and some re-compositing on my old art, but then as i was painting it i got carried away and the more i paint the more thing i wanted to change for the better, the jersey was repainted, the bike was now texture with carbon fiber texture on the black suface, in the end it ended up like a new art but still with the same message and spirrit

u have to enlarge to see the changes. enjoy

this makes me tearing of all the joy here ;-;

These details.... Shimano XTR and XT, a FOX fork and hydraulic disc brakes, and all the other parts, it's like seeing a real mountainbike I'd see at work where I'd work on X3

This is plain outstanding, a masterpiece of a bicycle-painting combined with a cool anthro lion, just awesome!

Keep it up! =D

I would totally buy this and hang it on my wall. I like biking so I think it's a fitting choice, besides the work here was done beautifully. Though I must admit, I'm not a mountain biker but, it's still a good peice :3

One thing wrong is that his rear derailleur is too far off the cassette. It would jump around and skip like crazy with any bumps. That and the front tire looks a little too tall and would scrape the top part of the fork.

thanks for pointing the derailleur issue, as for the fork it was actually compress hitting a bump of something,

There are a lot of changes, I looked at it for a while - they are just really hard to notice. Could make a great "spot-the differences" kind of puzzle.

Anyways, this is still amazing, very real looking (even more so now)

[oh and you might want to change your bottom right logo to 2009 instead of 2008]

yeah good one, spot the differences, but not many people here in DA are bike people, so it's pretty much a no point
