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.
