old school gasser

Here is my latest. let me know what you think. I'm trying to get work doing these sort of illustrations, but I'm new to the business. Does anyone have any suggestions of where I should look. I was thinking I could do personalized car club shirts, stuff like that. But I really don't know.

This little willy's was kind of a collaboration of cars- the complete description of it is on my blog- check bio for address.

Based on some of the amazing work I've seen here from some of you, I get the feeling there are actual working artists among us- enlighten me with your wisdom, and I shall pay homage to the great inkspot in the sky.

Iv'e been drawing for a while- but this whole networking thing is new to me.
Any advise would be appreciated.
Thanks

Very nice inkwork. Very nice detail. I like how the plug wires and other things look like they were just slaped on so the car could be run.lol. Make a nice tat for someone.

Very nice work. I really like that 'rough and realisitc' style. A little advice though - that car is not even close to being a Willys. Sort of a Phord 3-window 32 I guess. Would be good to have an actual car as your model so you can get a few of the important details right-on. If you were to try to sell this to a Willys nut you would have a hard time! Otherwise your style really spins my prop!

Thanks for the advice willys36. I should have looked for a willys with that view, so I could have gotten it right. When I draw, and I don't have something that has to be perfect, I tend to use my artistic freedom. I guess I better put that in check when dealing with real car people. I myself have a fetish for 67 camaros, and when ever I see someone do a poor representation of one- I feel as though they did'nt care, and it reduces the work's appeal for me. I had never thought about it swinging both ways. It's a little humbling, but I appreciate it.

Just a thought. As I said I love your style but I would be better served as a customer to see those tell-tale Willys details I know and love just as a rendition done for a Henry J lover or Deuce Coupe lover. You can still take those details and blow them all out of proportion and come up with a bodacious result.

NICE ART WORK!

I have always wished I could do that...

How about a '57 FORD with a RAT FINK hanging out the windshield busting gears?

quick ?s

Sounds good Kultulz,
I'll have something for you this weekend. It's a small photo, so are those side-pipes, or header-dumps? I can't tell. Magnesium wheels I assume? Drum brakes-right? Just trying to get some detail info for the illustration.

It's done

Here you go Kultulz.
The res is'nt so good, because I had to keep the file small enough to fit here. It's probably easy for some of you computer types, but for me- I'm learning. This was done entirely by hand- no computers. It's pen and ink.
That was the first time a had ever drawn a 57 ford before, that was one of the reasons I decided to draw it. I hope you like it.

You can get a much better res shot by checking out my blog, then clicking the link to my online store.(see personal profile for blog address) If you really like the illustration, Then you'll love the store.

Let me know what you think,
Johnnymac

Thanks Willys,
I'm trying to learn illustrator so things don't take me so long. I gave up doing on my own, so I'm taking a class on adobe illustrator next semester at the local JC. I just want to ensure that I don't lose my "signature" when I incorporate the software.
