nostalgia piece; work in progress

so the car that started it all for me, was my father's '72 400 road runner. i never actually got to see the car for myself, as he gave it to my uncle (then got stolen weeks later) before i was born, but always was fascinated by the stories he'd tell.

these cars always held a special place in my heart, and growing up in NYC you didn't see many road runners around, and if you did they were usually 68-71's. it was rare i'd spot a '72 like his.

anyway, it was torred red with the tank tracks.. and so for his birthday last year i began painting it for him. it's a graphic painting, from scratch. i use a wacom cintiq 20.1wsx, so it's like using a pen to create everything as you draw directly on the screen.

anyway, here's what i have so far, it's actually close to being done (well, as close as it can be haha). he's seen it in progress stages, and is very pleased with it i can't wait till i finalize it and have it sent to a printing shop and then framed to give to him!

any feedback is great, i don't mind constructive criticism, but please keep in mind this is still a work in progress, so a lot of it is still rough and unshaded.

oh, and because i always start things without finishing them, here's a sketch i scanned and inked of a 40's coronet piece that plan to fix the perspective on (i'm aware it's totally off, haha i wasn't using any references and suffered because of it haha).

and yet another piece, that i started hand sketching, and never finished.. it's a 'cuda meant to look somewhat like a fish in water, like those popular koi tattoos you see here and there:

that's all for now, hopefully i'll finish these 3 pieces some day, along with 2 other car pieces i started, and not to mention others i've done for clients, blargh hah.

Nice Work! Jump into the contest, I would give up a few toes to have the skill you guys have with the art. (I would give up the proverbial arm and leg but it would be hard to draw with one arm and standing on one leg.. )

Nice work! I love the concept of a cuda in a coy fish style tattoo.
