The Artwork And Artists.

1 : johnnyjalopy
Registered User
Has Entered Two Images "Living Loud T Bucket" "Model T Tattoo"

Johnny's talent spans many versatile looks at artwork through his own unique style, mainly oils brushwork all done by hand, one of the few not using digital manipulation. His "Living Loud T Bucket" and "Model T Tattoo" are testaments to his skills and foresight.

2 : Artist
Member Artist has entered in three images "Remembering When" "crayola pen" and "I Love Rock n' Roll"

Member Artist also enters his images in hand drawn artwork, complete with enough color and palette style of presentation you have an excellent feel for his thoughts of a complete image telling a story, a picture is always worth a thousand words, he has covered that in not only this contest but others.

3 : brickyardboy

Streetbeasts lawsuit donor

Brickyardboy always comes through with a mighty version of the contest vehicle choice aptly named "T-REX"...the king of the t-bucket jungle! The artist states he used a mixture of pencil, soft pastel sticks, colored pencils and fine line ink markers to finish a very well and intriguing image to be a part of the voting.

4 : 57Corvette
Rat Rod Studios
Has Entered Three Images "Alien T Bucket" "Patriotic T Bucket" "Rear View T Bucket"

Creations from Rat Rod Studios are how you say "out of the ordinary", a fine mix of digital art combined with real life images in many ways they are portrayed in all their glory. Deep rich colors, dodging, burning and clean cuts make these works stand out.

5 : fortypickup
Wolf in Hot Rodders upholstery
Has Entered Two Images "Greaser T" "Bucket Rail"

Member fortypickup steps away from his well known digital drafting and takes to pencil and paper for a look at his sketch work. Flowing lines, swooping visions, and all around idea of what may become an incredible work in illustrator, he gives you the inside look of his first initial thoughts of the subject matter.

6 : hotrodrendering "T-Salt"
Registered User

It's not often we get something this wild, a real rendering of a turtledeck T Bucket but designed for the Bonneville Salt Flats. Great color and execution of design makes you know this vehicle could be the next record holder in a/gr. Beautiful color combinations, the glare from the flats and excellent shadowing produce a well rounded image.

My apologies for not being able to edit my thread, Johhny Jalopy wants me to restate that he does in fact use scanned in artwork after being done by hand and using the painting tools to finalize his work. My apologies again for misrepresenting his style of work guys.

Congrats Neil always, great work .......

I would throw out Woody's for a Summer theme. But, OK with whatever Neal wants to do.

Only Racing 08-01-2011 12:24 PM

great choice Bob, Neal should be on shortly, although I do remember we had said that first to post their work actually wins. Correct me if I'm wrong.

At my age I can't remember what I ate for breakfast ..... :mad: I'm OK waiting to hear from Neal if you are .....hopefully, he;ll get here soon. Is the next contest going to be for two months?

Only Racing 08-01-2011 12:37 PM

Lol, if you guys prefer two months again, it seemed to work out well yet we still can't get the voting and views up as much as we'd like. Like Jon says, it's all in the title. I do believe and went back and checked the first to post does actually win so if it's Woody's, we do Woody's Bob.

57Corvette 08-01-2011 12:47 PM

OK .....Woody's any year or style. I actually prefer only one month for the contest, but maybe should poll the members. Whatever the majority wants is cool with me ........

brickyardboy 08-01-2011 02:07 PM

Bob, Neal, nice win! One month or two, it doesn't matter to me.

Only Racing 08-01-2011 02:31 PM

Woody's it is, A one month contest for August. Post should be coming soon. I recently found out this morning a good friend of mine was murdered in a home invasion with his wife being able to get away, the invaders shot him in the head and set the house on fire so I am backed up a little with calls. Look for a new post later tonight.

brickyardboy 08-01-2011 02:43 PM

Mark, that's terrible! Prayers sent for the family and friends. Take care of your business first, then worry about the contest.
