Twisted Dragon,

You are very talented. Excellent drawing of the Riviera. I think you could go into business doing renderings of concepts. Ever given it consideration?

My artistic talent is kinda fickle really, something is at least. If I could keep it more consistant I would be able to make a job of it. Of course, thats when I don't have any set schedule and stuff. That really helps me be able to draw, I remember being able to draw constantly in school, wasn't supposed to though I would try to go into business, but honestly, I dunno how to start

And thanks for the pics, that should really help me

Twisted Dragon,

Go to a college were you are allowed to draw, art college, school of design, etc. They will allow you to continue to refine your talent, will probably provide business classes and the contacts you make will be invaluable. Foose for one went to design school. We need more talented designers!

Whether you think you can or think you can't you are probably right!

Well I assume I can do that, since i have been weighing where I'll go between design school or to another automotive school. All I need is ASE certification, I don't need anymore schooling, I just wanted to practice more. I can do that with books and reading. I think I just might go into design school, its seeming to be a better and better idea by the passing minute

Man, go to design school. I thought your drawing was excellent; lots of people can copy a picture but doing a concept freehand and still keeping all the proportions right, etc., is talent. Design school will help you improve on that and teach you how to turn it into a career. The best grads from those schools are head-hunted by the big auto manufacturers, which means major $$$.

Good Luck!

That in particular? About 45 minutes like the Riv, I wish my scanner would pick things up better, so much detail and sharpness is lost with my pictures through it. Oh well, thats good enough for now

I can color, buuuuut it has a tendancy of going horribly wrong, bleeds and feathers out and just looks like.. well, you know what I wanna say I've tried charcol too, but I suck at it, my uncle is really good at it, he made a 57 Chevy that looked like I could reach in and touch it

On losing your style

Years ago when I decided to stop working for minimum wage and go to college I had a choice between journalism school or getting an Advertising/Public Relations diploma. I made a huge mistake when I went for the APR thing; when I was taking that course, I got involved with the student newspaper, became it's managing editor, and discovered I *loved* journalism. Unfortunately, no newspaper that actually pays good money would consider hiring me with the business diploma I'd earned, they all told me to go back and get a journalism degree.

The main reason I chose not to go to journalism school was, as a writer, I didn't want to lose my unique 'voice' and I thought the school would pound it out of me. In hindsight, I realize that the school would have taught me the basic 'newspaper' style of writing, but I could have still retained by own style for other kinds of writing. I still write, but I'm working in factories, rather than newspapers, and it sucks. I've done lots of APR writing and it's been fun, but I would have preferred a full-time job on a paper or a magazine.

So don't let any fear of losing your 'style' prevent you from going to design school. If this is what you'd like to do for a living, get the proper training and credentials, like Foose did, and then you won't have any regrets after.

Graphics program? All I have here to my name is this computer, scanner, typing paper, and a few stray pencils, I wish I had more to work with really A graphics program would be nice to be able to do that stuff in, but until then, all I have size and contrast adjustments And which is a snorkel scoop? Those thin flat ones shaped kinda like a retangle? Or the ones like on the Jeg's cavalier? At least I think its jegs

I think I can keep my styles and theirs straight, no worries about that anymore, now its just getting into the school, or choosing one period

from F1 racing

The snorkel is on the pro street cars and similar to the ones on Early F1 race cars. Not rectangular at all...stands off the hood to allow for a high rise intake and duel carbs with air cleaners. I think it is like the one on the Jegs car's only stands 3" or 4" higher up off the hood not down on the hood
