sed GIMP. Great activity for a greatly needed day of sitting around the house.

1. Using beizer paths and channel masks i cut out the biker from the original.

2. I copied the biker over to the nascar backround on his own layer and resized him to be relativly to scale.

3. I flipped the biker horizontally to get him moving with traffic and rotated him slightly to get his wheels on the ground.

4.I fooled around with the perspective tool to fit the biker in a little better.

5. I selected the area of the wheels with the spokes and used a radial motion blur on them to make them look like theyre spinning.

6. I Made a layer mask on the biker and colored it in to put the biker behind the front car.

7. I made a duplicate of the biker layer and put a slight motion blur on it, then put the blurred layer on darken only, to make it look like he's really moving.

8. Flatten, save, done!

Good subject material, but to be nit picking though, it looks from the road and the cars that they are going around an inside bend, whereas he is heeling his bike the opposite way, him and the white car are going to become a right cropper.

Naw...

I think he's getting ready to slam that 33 car into the wall and bank him back into the 21 car while he squirts through the middle and into the lead...

Cute...!

What a sporty background choice. I think the motorcycle might take them, especially if there are any jumps on the course.
