The Nurburgring Tragedy drawing project.

Post by Roys1981 » 1 year ago

This will be my project what I have in mind for a couple of weeks now.

The Nurburgring has fascinated me as long as I can think back in time. Especially the grim list of severe (fatal) accidents that have happend upthere. No one knows the exact number of fatal accidents, that took place, on that circuit, Civil drivers on free run incl.
Since I'm not uploading my clips (Maybe some requests) I had this new idea to draw every fatal accident that occured, involving drivers from a competition of any official class in a race, private test or training.

Like a posted the very first fatal car crash compilation ever, back at another forum in 2003/2004, this type of project has never been done before in the world as far as I know. That makes it a challenge.

In 3 frames I will draw the accident based on information of the Motorsport Memorialsource, eyewitness reports, aftermath picture or video analysing and ofcourse exicting footage of the crash itself.
This will take years of work but it's definantly worth trying because I like to draw and I draw pretty well.
When a drawing is finished, I'll post a small format here so it will be pretty protected from leechers.

In the end, a big compilation will be made in perfect quality and see the web. Every drawing will be in b/w.

My drawing style is a bit Michel Vailiant style by Jean Craton.

So the very first driver will be Cenek Junek. I really would appriciate some help with some parts of the circuit, to come as close as possible to the most reliable contrast of the crash.
