Ayrton Senna – “Senninha” 1/20 scale figure WIP

This 1/20 scale resin figure of Ayrton Senna has been in my WIP line-up for a while now, and today I eventually got back to painting in some more of the details.   Using a photo of him taken at his home Grand Prix in Brazil (the first GP in ’94), I decided to depict him wearing one of his “Senninha” type T shirts which features the comic character logo of his charitible foundation.

So far I’ve just outlined the Senninha graphic on the T shirt with medium values – the boots have been given some initial shading as have the legs of the racing suit – the top part of the suit has also been given some outlining using the main sponsor colours (Rothmans).  As the top part of the suit is folded down I’ll have to look for opportunities to paint some other relevant sponsor lettering in order to add more detail to the piece ……more later.
