A tribute to Marco Simoncelli by kanaruaizawa16 A tribute to Marco Simoncelli by kanaruaizawa16
November 12, 2011: Finally I published "Project Koala", a video tribute I was doing since a time ago, and I used this drawing for the video. You can watch it here.

Reference pics:
T-shirt and hair from: 4.bp.blogspot.com/-ioJQvP_ZRZk…. Taken from Los MiniDrivers y los MiniBikers.

Eyes: i42.tinypic.com/jayxcz.jpg

Katakana text is his name in Japanese writing.

Because I upload what I want, people. And if you don't like or don't care about the topic, that's not my problem. Let me alone!

Remake version, 2013:


Used on this "Draw this again" meme:


What a lot of time since I don't use The GIMP for make a drawing. At least my new tablet works well with GIMP and Windows 7.

Well. I needed to make this drawing, because I would explode if I don't make it.

It's a bit hard of explain why I did it. I feel trolled by the muses.
The guy was a MotoGP rider named Marco Simoncelli, who called a lot of attention because he was a bit rude rider and because his giant hair in tribute to Jimi Hendrix.

The #58 is because he was identified with that number.

I have my own story of why I liked him and so on: Since I hate to wake up too early, I refused to follow MotoGP. But a Spanish guy has a series named MiniDrivers and MiniBikers. MiniBikers is all the MotoGP issue, then I followed MotoGP with this. And it's really funny.

In fact, in the reference image I put, one of them was the way Simoncelli was represented as a character of the flash series. The hair outside the helmet LOL.

Why I feel trolled by muses? Because unfortunately he passed away in October 23th in Malaysian GP. I don't want to talk about the circunstances of that. But who cares now. I feel trolled because I CARED HIM SINCE 2010 YEAR, I would draw him, but... why now?!?!?!?!? Well, now I don't care. Still I feel I must use the best of my skills drawing.

It shocked me because I liked him because that series and so on, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Because that I had one of most insane and terrible weeks of my life. Yes, I received my CD of T-SQUARE and I'm listening it while I write all this randomness. Yes, I had some good grades in several exames recently. But I was really unstable. I know I'm going to recover of this. I need time.
But for now, I think a drawing would be good for my mental state. And some good music.

Initially I wanted to disable comments, because I was not very well animically (!), but now I don't care anymore. I know I'm going to recover.

As I would say in Spanish because it's the only language I have some kind of inspiration for that kind of issues on this moment: Hasta siempre, Marco.

We miss him, since that tragic day. A weekend after Dan Wheldon's death.

É mesmo... Lembro também o shock que eu tive quando soube da morte do Wheldon, especialmente porque segui o cobrimento do acidente via redes sociais, e foi muito complicado, especialmente porque Indy era parte da minha infancia, eu lembro algumas coisas de quando se transmitia a CART/Champcar aqui na Colômbia, há mais de doze anos. E de fato, eu lembro do que eu disse momentos antes de que se anunciara finalmente o falecimento do Wheldon: "Indy era parte da minha infancia". É isso.

Então, a semana seguinte, foi horrível, ainda tava assumindo o de Wheldon, e então aconteceu o de Simoncelli (Por pouco e o chamo de Moita! Opa xD É já a costume quando falo em português sobre o Marco), que me deixou ruim porque era uma semana após do acidente de Wheldon, ainda por cima, como falei na descripção, eu já tinha bastantes lembranças e coisas a dizer. Então foi uma situação que me deixou muito mal, totalmente, assim que te entendo.

Obrigada pelo seu comentário ^^.

Não é problema chamar o Sic de Moita, também é conhecido como o Urso do Cabelo Duro (referência a um desenho da Hanna-Barbera). Desde a morte do Senna, eu não esperava ver a morte pela TV de novo.

"Urso do cabelo duro" huashaushaushausahuahauhausas. Esse apelido também era genial XD. O Moita ficou muito conhecido por causa desse cabelo, lembro um video que colocaram no YT oficial da MotoGP onde mostravam a uma garota lhe dando os premios por ter ganhados umas enquetes: "Melhor cabelo do 2010" e "Pior cabelo do 2010". Pelo primeiro lhe deram um pente pelo premio de melhor cabelo, e logo umas tessouras pelo premio de pior cabelo XD.

Enquanto aos acidentes... bom, ninguém espera ver a morte rondar pelos circuitos, não após do de Senna ;_; (embora eu nem tinha memória na época). Uma das coisas que mais tensa me deixou do acidente do Moita foi precisamente o lugar: Sepang. Não apenas porque seja o lugar onde o Marco conseguiu o título de 250cc, também porque é um dos circuitos feitos pelo Hermann Tilke. É verdade que aquele acidente é um acidente muito estranho onde os muros não tiveram nada a ver, é um acidente muito complicado de se prever e que a forma de diminuir os riscos não está na modificaçõ de circuitos se não nos dispositivos de segurança dos pilotos. Após de tudo foi um acidente baita similar a aquilo do Shoya Tomizawa, lá em Misano ;_;.
Mas de todas formas... nunca imaginei alguém morrer num Tilkódromo.

Até logo! :3

Thank you so much! :3 It's so nice of you :3.

Hahaha, the hair :D. I also liked the result :D. I took a lot of effort there because it was the most recognizable thing on him ;).

Yes, that's a Marco shirt :3. It was my extremely delayed Christmas gift (because it arrived in January 5th) ^^. Again, thank you very much! :3

See you! ^^
