crazygutgut okay i took a stab at doing my ranchero in Pshop..I gotta try this with Illustrator! Pshop has way less control for the lines.. also I think I should have done the lines with out aliasing them, illustrator has better shading for objects too! and not to mention this took like 2 hours!!

crazygutgut I have illustrator 7 on one pc, and I think 10 on the mac...

I actually hear you about the Rotrings!! I went to school for graphic design and graduated in 1986, RIGHT BEFORE the computer took over! I still have a tube of rubylyth and amberlyth! not to mention like 50 x-actos!! I was never into technical drawing, all though, since the development of cad and others, It has intrigued me!

grouch Couple of free alternatives to Adobe Illustrator:

Inkscape (I have this one installed, but don't have talent enough to do anything but make doodles).

Karbon14 (This was originally called Killustrator but Adobe, understandably, objected to the name. The KDE team starts all their projects with a 'K', btw).

malc I used to do parts manuals for GM in the UK, in 1978 I went to Germany and did the same for VW, in ī91 I came to Spain and itīs here I HAD to learn to illustrate on the computer.
I still pine for my Rotring pens and elipse templates.

camberbrandt Illustrator will also be true vector, were as Photoshop is not fully vector based.

crazygutgut I know you can do almost the same thing is Pshop, but illustrator has MUCH better line tools, and that is apparent in your illustrations... I think someone is gonna dust off illustrator this weekend...

malc I took pics of my Cragars, and copied them into my drawings.
I canīt get on with Photoshop.
