The Dutch's Pinstriping

Here is some of my pinstriping.

Keep in mind though that im only working with a #1 size brush
so some of the lines are gonna be fat on some of them.

My opinion is, it's too busy for my taste. My preference for pinstriping is for it to accentuate not overtake what it's being applied to. Of course there's plenty of people that prefer it to be busy.

I will say that for freehand pinstriping, you do have a decent amount of symmetry (judging from the glass pic), that's no easy task. Even though it's "not my cup of tea" as some would say, I still admire the creativity at the least.

I think its awesome. Keep on pulling those lines and soon you'll be able to make an extra few bucks at swapmeets and carshows rather than spending lots
Like BstMech said, some stuff seems "too busy", and maybe trying a finer brush and working at elegance a little bit more?
Definitely post your striping stuff if you have some The art forum is usually kinda slow so it might take a while to get responses, but people do circulate through here.

Here's what I have planned for the winter months when it's too cold to really do anything else. Take an ordinary mirror and do some Dremel work to the back side making a reverse caption maybe with a design. After removing the chrome to make the design, paint it with a bright colored or fluorescent paint. It really stands out and looks pretty cool from the front side of the mirror. I'm planning on making one for my buddie's pool room at his house with the caption "Dead stroke" or something similar.

When I was younger, we used to black out the quarter glass on our G bodies and scribe stuff, then do the fluorescent thing and black out over that. Looked pretty cool then anyway....

Something similar to the subject at hand and I thought you might like an idea for a different "canvas" for your pinstriping. I think it'd look pretty cool.

067_67.JPG is my favorite. I agree with BstMech that they're too busy but show creativity and talent. Deciding "that's enough" can be hard to do. (Take every color from a Rembrandt and stir it up and you'll get mud).

I think they look good. But in my opinion the lines are too big. Get a smaller brush and reduce your line width. It will look more intricate. But that is my $.02.
