Hi!

I'm using Staedtler Lumocolour & Staedtler Pigment Liner pens on 220gm paper.
The pigment liners are a new addition & a bit finer than the Lumocolours, hence the increase in detail.
I take my hat off to your work, too. I'm gonna try out some colour stuff later in the year & see what happens. I've got a bit of a list of pics to do, so let me clear the backlog first...

Hey, Job-rated, you're inspiring me to pick up my Rapidigraph pens. Your stuff is great. I really love the 'Rebel' Ford.
I'm partial to black and white, especially in drawings. I haven't drawn anything in a few years, though. I may have to start up again!

I feel humbled when I read comments like these.
It's good to know my work doesn't go unnoticed & that's fuel for the fire.

Thankyou.

I really like these kinds of two tone inked designs, something I'd like to incorporate into my own work. I'm sure it's a matter of practice and study, and your work gives me something solid to observe.

Great stuff, great style, very appealing shapes and lines!

Wow, you guys are doing awesome work, all of this done freehand or using french curves and what not.

Both of my hands were severely burned in a work accident and haven't drawn much since. Grasping anything but a large molded rubber grip about the size of a throttle on a motorcycle is all I can do for any length of time. I do mss it,

I was drawing anything from 8yrs old, had a few covers for local car clubs and so on, normal stuff. I tend to sway to the Frazzetta style since that was the last I had touched.

I always had a preferance for pen and ink, fine detail styles. I can remember drawing my brothers feild and stream covers of fish jumping out of the water with all the scales and proper colors.

I never quite got painting down, it was messy and just never liked the amount of time. I flunked art class because of this, lol.

All of you guys shoul be proud of your work, I'm enjoying it.

I do all my stuff with pencils & ink - no French curves.

I also play guitar & cannot imagine what it would be like to lose the use of my hands.
Considering you've damaged yours, you still manage to maintain some skill.

And besides, you won the last round!

I'm glad you like my work.

Sorry to hear about your hands. Hope that you regain full use of them again.
I don't know what I would do if that happened to me.

Thanks for the kind words guys, They will never be the same, it was severe nerve damage from chemical burns, it only gets worse. I worked with my hands in all my jobs like most of my family. I really respect it when guys like you are willing to come on and show stuff you do. I can browse the net forever looking for cool stuff, but I really enjoy this website since it works as well as it does.

I don't think I've ever seen it down or page not found, someones working to keep this thing running well.

The comp is a better way for me to play I think, just a a beginner, but I have a decent photography backgtound so I have alot of stuff to use.

A good friend is trying to teach me the pen tool but am still not getting it, I'd like to try Illustrator but have yet to get a copy, The new CS3 is good at everything IMO, but I still go back to CS2 version 8 for almost all the stuff I do now. CS3 opens very quickly compared to my CS2 since I've added so much junk to it, lol. I'd like to keep it that way, lol.

I've done online tutorials but for some reason mine will not work the same way as what I see. Stroke paths are what I'm after if anyone knows a good "EASY" tutorial somewhere.

I only use my PC to show a reference pic to guide me - photoshop, illustrator & programs like them are beyond me.

I also thought it was beyond me. Until I took a basic classes on Photoshop and Illustrator 14 years ago. They are not easy to pick up on your own. Before that I had only used a MacIntosh Classic to make logos! Funny to look at those little Mac's now.

Before I started using a computer, all my illustrations (for work) were on drawn on Vellum and used a Rapidograph. Those things can make a mess! Always cleaning my tools (templates, pens, etc.)

As for a good bezier pen tool (for creating paths) here's the site:
Mike's Sketch Pad
Don't expect to pick it up immediately. Practice, practice, practice!!!

Thanks DVierstra, I found a full download of Basic Pen tool use. I have a good feel for photoshop and what I can expect from myself using it. There are so many differances in the way people use it.

I checked out your supplies also, I'm broke from Cameras right now but a radiograph set would be awesome, maybe christmas, lol.
