Valentino Rossi commission

RossiSketch_ColourValentino Rossi, one of the most successful motorcycle racers of all time is the subject of this recent EdinburghSketcher commission.


Good morning. Last night I showed you a close up of this sketch and asked if you knew who it was. Here is the full version. I love the cross-hatch shading, I find it very therapeutic and relaxing. I used ot doodle a lot and shade shapes, a cube, pyramid and sphere. I never knew the practice would one day make me a few quid 🙂


If you would like a commission created then prices start at just £48, drop me an email for more information contact@edinburghsketcher.com


The sketch is in black ink with a water colour wash. The black only version is seen below, I can’t decide which I prefer.
