Only Racing My comp now is a Falcon Northwest and it's been plugging along since 2004 but granted it was way overbilt in the beginning, now it's time for a new one but don't really want windows 7 unless I can get XP on it also which they will do for me, Machine or should I say just the box comes in at around 2,450 without shipping and again it's overbuilt but I'd rather stay ahead of the game. That truly is funny about the finding your laptop, lol

Well at least I know now, really it was bugging me to death. I hope you find some time and try new stuff, all these guys here are really into some neat stuff with illustrator and other very hard programs, which I'd love to learn but just need a new comp first.

Looking at one of these: http://www.falcon-nw.com/ choose configure a Talon, I love this website, awesome machines and I only know PC's not MAC
You're right about not having a lot of control using the pad. I will be buying a plug-in mouse soon, which should be a lot easier to manipulate. Next computer will be a desktop, so I always know where it is!

Last time I played with it, I was trying to learn the function of all the tools, options and pallettes, and started to remove backround and try the layer option. Next I'll read the tuturals and take little steps to digest it. It's a great program!

IROC100 Hey Brickyard, Nice work, I like it !!!!!!

Only Racing, I downloaded Gimp and I'm going to play around with it, looks like a lot of learning I've to do, but will give it a shot.

brickyardboy Thanks, guys, for the kind words. Yeah, it's curious that this month's subject didn't attract more entries than it did. I thought there would be many more. Hey, Bob and Doodler, Neil and Iroc100, I think you scared them off!
03-26-2010 06:40 AM
Doodler Hey Brickyard, You work quick sir! Nice work!

The ref has already starting the 10-count everybody. Last day, lets see how many more we can get in. With this subject being as popular with rodders as it is, i'm really surprised that we didn't max out the poll amount.
03-23-2010 12:10 PM
Only Racing Well Brickyard, I think it'll buff out

Again, I'm not gonna make this one, A bad virus got into my machine and took out most of my presets and added photoshop stuff. But I will be able to get this poll up as soon as the contest date ends, man I really wanted to get in on this one, my only form of relatation anymore, lol.

Still very cool work ..... I did the same thing in November. Had the right car, but had the wrong year.

brickyardboy Man, am I late posting this month! First of all, cudos goes to the guys that have contributed artwork this month. Nice work, guys! I've been so busy with work this month that I just breezed in here now and then, and just today managed to quickly do a colored pencil rendering of this month's subject, and after reading more closely, I found that it was pertaining to a finished rod. Oh oh, I drew up a neglected roadster sitting out in a field. I'll have to pay more attention in the future! LOL

Only Racing Me personally, I begin with a photo and from there, it's a bunch of different ways to do it depending on the contest, the photo toons were a kinda plaything since I'm a photographer I have access to my large format pictures, the bigger they are the better. I moved on to drawing out the car and simply painting it, all the stuff I use is basic photoshop tools that are in any of the programs. I mainly had to learn layers and that was it, once you learn layers, you're good to go, knowing when to flatten them or when to merge them. All the neat photoshop stuff like brushes and gradients are readliy available anywhere on the net for free I may add. I've taught guys within an hour to create something cool and give them a head start.

The more advanced guys know the pen tool, which I just can't seem to get right, i have two versions of photoshop on my comp and both pen tools work different.
