Dirt Bike Mike

I used an older image from Kenny K for this card, its one I've had for a while but I have been a bit afraid to colour it in as I knew it would be lots of greys. I used almost all the grey families to try to give the different areas different hues/warmth and try to give the image some areas of separation, hopefully you can see that in the picture. It was a much more fun image to colour than I expected although probably not one I will colour again for a while.

As its a guy card I wanted the rest to be pretty plain and simple, I find the rule of thumb with guy cards is less is more. The sentiment die is a bit crooked but hopefully it doesn't notice too badly.
