Hey Paul

This is a drawing of my 66' mustang and my 40' ford pickup in the working stage! Just a sketch, mind you! This was before I did any work on the cars! Go to my journal to view my projects,

pigjamelectric Very nice stuff Neal. I like the way you use the shadows to add to the "real" look. I especially like your first drawing. It looks like noon on a hot summer day.

Do you still draw? Any recent stuff?

Cool art in here.

Here are some old drawings I did a while back. I have been to buzy working on my 40 pickup & mustang to do any drawings recently. Hope to get back into it. Keep up the good posts on this subject. Happy Hot Rodding!

TXwayno Love your work. Makes me want to break out the sketch pad again (of course, I was never this good). This one is my favorite as it reminds me of my buddies car. Great job.

klassik100 My cartons start out as hand drawn but most of my work is done in Corel Draw for the clean lines and then eprted to Photoshop for the colours.

I do have some though that the lines are all done by hand with ink and a brush, then they are scanned and coloured in photoshop. It all depends on the effect I want.

The attached Ballarat Rod Run design was done with the ink and brush method for the cars and starter then the rest was done with Corel and then finish coloured and separated for screen printing in Photoshop. The others are also the same style of artwwork.

I believe this was how a lot of the later Ed Roth work was done using ink and brush for the lines and the photoshopping the colour.

Those are great. Do you do them freehand or with a graphic design program? I do some freehand illustrating and cartoons mostly, I'll post some when I figure out how to shrink them down.

Kevin45 I can't draw anything but a straight line. I just want to say that you guys are awesome If I could draw like that I would have every wall in my garage decorated up with 'toons, etc. Any one of the pics I have seen that has been posted would look great at about full size on a garage wall. As soon as I get a overhead projector I will have it too. I said I can't draw, but I can trace!!!

mr.Pinto I did a little cartoon of me in my Pinto. Just done with a drawing pen. I was gonna color it sometime, but I don't know much about using computer programs.

klassik100 Thanks John,

You are fortunate that you cando a course. I would have to do a diploma to get formally trained here.

Listen to your Brother in Law mate, he is making sense and go learn Illustrator properly, maybe you can get a job doing this full time if you dont already.



PS post up some of your stuff, I would love to see it.

inkwork Well, Like I said, I have yet to figure it out but I will. My brother in law is an art director for a business mag here in sac, and he has been on me for years to learn this stuff. Now Iv'e got the software, and am taking a class in January through the local college. So we'll see how it goes. Ive taken CAD and that was fairly easy, so I wouldn't think it to be that hard. But When I try to make sense of it without any instruction, I get completely lost. Anyway, I really like your work. Very clean-solid.

klassik100 even colour seps by hand?

Man that is keen, If you intend getting involved with computer art full time and working in this industry then you need to learn Illustrator.

If you only want to do this stuff for yourself then I would suggest Corel Draw, it is much easier to operate und learn. but is not as used much in the graphics industry as Illustrator is originally a mac program and most graphics people use mac.

I went the other way with Corel draw when I first started with the computer art and find Illustrator too illogical and the tools dont make as much sense.
