Racing Rick

This week's challenge at Make it Colourful is to color with Smooth Gradients which basically means to color with lots of blending so you can't tell where one color ends and the other begins. This was easier for me to do in the larger areas and more difficult in the smaller parts like the hair. This is also a sneak peek of Racing Rick from Make it Crafty.

Did you know? Watson is an artificial intelligence program developed by the corporation IBM, designed to answer questions posed in natural language. During 2011, Watson competed on the television quiz show Jeopardy! as a test of its abilities against two of the show's most successful contestants. Watson received the first prize of $1 million and IBM divided the winnings between two charities. This was the first human-versus-machine competition in Jeopardy!'s history. Watson had access to 200 million pages of structured and unstructured content consuming four terabytes of hard disk storage and was not connected to the Internet during the game.
