You began by giving the man a compliment and then took it away by insulting him.

I have some advice for you. Not all things are viewed by people in the same light and not all things are of interest to to everyone. What you think is not a good subject matter may be a passion for someone else.

best regards,
Joe

I have to agree, a theme of cars is not stoopid. I find myslef marveling at how artfuly cars used to be put together. The old cars from the 1920's-50's were some of the most beautiful and certainly are works of art in their own right. I would love to see you do some old cars from different perpectives and angles. Truly beautiful work. :D

thank you

Postby MajorTom » Mon Jun 26, 2006 7:22 pm

Thanks for the kind words folks. I do draw other things such as people, animals, old barns and such. But I usually just use graphite or pen and ink. My customers wanted color, so I jumped in blindfolded so to speak, using colored pencils. When I finish my next piece(should I find the time!), I'll be sure and post it. Thanks again Tom

I showed the picture of the Jeep to my son. Now he wants to buy one and make it look just like that one! Soon he will be tapping the Bank of Dad. Anyway....it is a terrific piece of work. Excellent detail, great proportions, and really good perspective. Keep up the good work.

jeep

Postby ehoeveler » Thu Feb 08, 2007 5:21 am

Besides, cars are hard to draw. I tried to do a 'car monsters on the
highway' series, but I could not get those vehicles right! Cars will
never go out of style because everybody loves cars!
Can you imagine big trucks eating SUVs that are eating sedans that
are eating compacts? I give the idea, to you. ehoeveler

I agree with most of the others, it is a very good job and I say that as someone that was very much into show cars before my accident. If this is a passion and idea for practice & exposure might be to attend car shows in your area and offer to sketch cars for the owners. A lot of them would probably love to have their pride & joy the subject of an artwork.

I also agree with most of you.
Although I'm not into cars (or trucks), I can really appreciate the time and talent that went into creating it.
Great work of art you have!

At first view of this, I grinned ear to ear. I love the Norman Rockwell feel in both the sense of intimacy -- intimate knowledge and love -- you drew the work with and the quality of art on paper. The paper -- I love the paper you used...if it is on paper...or if digital, the effect of real old, good paper -- the very thick stuff that's heavy on the cotton, rich and lasting. I can almost pick it up. And what I really love about this is that the jeep has a sense of presence and personality like real ones do which are well-loved and cherished by their owners, seeming to take on their owner's personality, even when sitting parked in the garage.

Very good.

Think about a series of these, and doing them up in a calendar via lulu.com.

Thanks for the grin.

I love it.

ADD/EDIT: Just so you know, you've got such an amazing gift. The light and shadow, just the right amount of grass beneath, the reflections off the finish, and, my, my, the perspective is so well executed. *applause* I canNOT draw vehicles...unless they are horse buggies, that is.
