I've been searching the internet looking for someone to do a drawing of what my car will look like when finished. I finally found this thread. There's a lot of very talented guys on here doing the Photoshop stuff. I've never been good at computer graphics.

I have a challenge to post to all you guys doing these extremely cool virtual customs. I have an image in my head of what my 1934 Plymouth will look like when I'm done with it one day, and I'd like to have a drawing of the finished car. I've seen lots of guys drawing these cars, so I'd like to nicely ask for your time to help me out. The best drawing posted here of my car will be used as the main logo for my website, http://www.RustToRod.com. It will be right under the words Rust To Rod on the upper left corner of every page. To give respect, I will give you credit for the drawing on my Credits page, with your name and a link to your website if you have one. I'll also do a mouse-over on the image, so when you hover your mouse over the image, it will say "Logo designed by _your name_". I've posted several high resolution images of the car, about 600kb, on my website at this page

http://www.rusttorod.com/other/newsitelogo.htm

In the high-res pics you can see some green reference marks on the B pillar. Each green line is 1/2" wide, and the space between the marks is 1/2" wide. I'd like to see what the car would look like with a 2 to 3" chopped top, shaved handles and hidden hinges, smooth running boards, with Boyd Coddington's Nemesis wheels, slammed with airbags. For the paint, I'm thinking a copper bronze, or maybe a silvery-pewter-gunmetal looking color. Ghost flames down the side of the hood to the doors one color shade off from the main paint color so you can just barely see them.

I know it's a big favor to ask, but I think my wife will be more interested in the car if she can see the finished product. Those of you who are married know that's very important! I have a large format printer, so I want to print out a poster to hang up in the shop too. I don't think we can post high-res pictures on here, so email your drawing to me at rusttorod@hotmail.com

Thanks in advance!!!!
-Shane

hotroding my own packard

I like the looks of you clipper. I just bought a 54 clipper special 4door. Its my first car. I bought a 496 chevy motor that i am going to put in it. I am glad people are keeping the packard name alive with some pretty cool looking hotrods.

Thumbs down

rusttorod :

sorry man I tried to play around with it but, the color scheme you got going there ain't work'n out to well , I could maybe use a pix of another car if you can find one you like.( but I think that would be defeating your original purpose ?)
The varying colors and splotches of primer are throwing everything off,..... maybe some of the other guys had better results?

I'll keep playing around w/it .
just didn't want ya to think you were being shunned for being the new guy, "it's just a odd image to change "

Are you refering to the blue Packard Clipper that I had posted to be photochopped? If so, Its not mine, just one I found on the internet. Mine is in no condition to be photochopped, I have pics of it here . And also in my project journal.

I plan on doing a full resto to mine as soon as I get a real job (not foord service). I thought about dropping in some form of a V8, but I think I may leave my I-8 288 in there. These cars need to be kept alive.

Hey treekiller,
I know exactly what you mean. The rusty primer color was the main problem I had too. I was hoping someone might know how to change the car color without losing the shading and contours of the body. I have collected lots of pictures of other '34 Plymouth cars to get ideas for my car. I'll post some of those on my website soon. I'll also print out a copy of one of those pictures, and trace the outline of the car in pencil, and scan that back into my computer. Do you think a pencil drawing of the basic shape would help? Has anyone ever talked to the guy at http://www.rodvisions.com? He does drawings of cars like this. I think he does awesome work, judging from the samples on his website, but it's just a little hard to get approval from the CFO at home for his $120 fee. It's worth every penny in my opinion, but I can't shell out that cash right now for artwork. I'll try to post my traced drawing on here soon.
I really appreciate the help!!
-Shane

Na ...an outline won't help me any ....
just like I said post a pix of "one you like" and I'll change it to the colors your wanting when I get time.

and talking about drawings : there was a member on this board , that was doing some really nice stuff , I can't remeber who it was , maybe some one else here does.

and the guy that started this thread is really good at this stuff maybe you can contact him directly .... ? I think he has a web site ? But I haven't seen his name pop up on the board lately.

Cant you just change the shading of the car and make it darker. I guess what im trying to say is cant you fiddle with the resolution and make it look darker. I will give her a shot later on.

Ok treekiller, I have just posted a bunch of pictures of 1934 Plymouth cars on my website at this address:

http://www.rusttorod.com/other/34plypics.htm

The top row are some of my favorites. I really like the camera angle on this black one, I think it might make a good website logo.

Did anyone see the last episode of OverHaulin'? I really love the realistic flames on that '68 Camero. I think I'll do something like that on my car.

Thanks guys!!
-Shane

This is the color I was thinking about. I read about this car on a website somewhere, and they called this copper bronze, or something like that.

That looks close enough to gunmetal. Gunmetal is a kind of dark blue color with a little gray in it.
