Hey guys!
Was wondering if you guys with your tremendous resources can point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a specific photo from the Monaco 2012 race weekend. It's of Michael Schumacher turning into the hairpin like the photo below but the full shot (portrait) and not this cropped version. I'm looking for the photo so I can do a drawing of it and maybe even try my hand at a painted version. I already have a small resolution file but I would need the highest resolution possible since I can't seem to find that anywhere. Many thanks fellas!

EDIT:
The first is the actual photo I'm looking for. The second is almost the same shot at a slightly different angle and only the latter I've managed to find in higher resolution.

Sorry. I searched for over 10 minutes but was not able to find the HD version.

As much as I like Schumi and his pole position at Monaco and think that he is the best driver ever in F1, I wouldn't paint him driving that ugly nose.

Please do share your painting with us. Thank you.

Edit: If you looking for an outline of the first image to "trace" the outer lines, you can zoom it, save it and print the zoomed versions. I did something like this before. Open the image in MS Paint (that is what I used) divide it into 4 parts, save all of them individually in a larger file (it will pixelate), print all of them seperately and then stick them together on a large drawing sheet. That way you will get the outline of the image and attempt to draw it.

Might take a creative liberty with the nose, not sure yet. 8O
I don't trace any of my drawings, I do them from scratch by eye while looking at the reference photo. I've only done two F1 drawings so far, one was a quick pen sketch and the other my first try at using color pencils. I can post those if you want.

It isn't on the Mercedes media section, either. But there are a few nice photos. I'm going off-topic here, but this was my personal favourite..

If you're going to be drawing it I'd invent a tiny bit more background at the top just above the man's head, for compositional reasons. I couldn't quite place it, but it's been bugging me each time I looked at the picture :)

I was planning on drawing a few elements out so its only the sheer beauty of Monaco and Schumi's last run for glory! I haven't decided on what artistic style to go with yet. I'm tempted to go retro style simplistic poster but at the same time I'm aching to do it more portrait style as well.

PS: feel free to turn this into a photo request thread or an artwork topic, I would be quite happy to see more lovely photos and wonderful artwork.
