Derby Art On A Derby Girl

This weekend will be the Championship bout for the Toronto Roller Girls.  Back in July I began work on these posters.  ToRD had the Chicks Ahoy lined up for the championship game but it would be another month before we knew who would be taking them on.  So how do we put a poster together with only one team?  My answer was this heavily tattooed roller girl getting a chest piece done for the final match of the season.  That way I could do a half finished tattoo that could be changed for the second version when we found out that the Gore Gore Roller Girls would be taking them on.  I've also included the under painting for the artwork so you can see a little bit of how this image was constructed.
