Re: Impressing the Ladies


What better way for a cool impala dude to impress the does than to cruise by in - what else? An Impala! Suitably genericized, of course.
Three colors on lemon.
And shout out and thanks to the pre-derby gang - you guys rock! Special kudos to sasham.

I'm getting there. I'm finally learning less is more, I think. And thanks!

This is SO cool! I saw some of the comments on this in the pre-derby thread - your changes are subtle, but added up to a strong improvement, I think!

Re: Impressing the Ladies


Thanks to all for the lovely comments. I learned a LOT on this one. First, that I draw cars better than people. Though the hubby disagreed when I told him it was a '66 Impala. Well, the reference photo was; maybe my drawing didn't do it justice.
Second, that my draw-and-scan then cleanup and color process wasn't working. This time I drew, re-drew the lines I wanted, scanned, then redrew in PS on a transparent layer over the scan. Lots of work, but I'm SO much happier with my lines.
Who knows? If I ever get time to learn to use a tablet, I might hit those triple-digits in votes!

That's the spirit! Don't stop, do it for yourself and if the votes come. that's a plus!

I LOVE this. I'm very sad it's not getting more votes. Boo on that. But, I agree with your assessment that you draw cars better than people, this is wonderful!

I really like this too! And I agree I hate drawing people...especially hands!

I love this, too. It reminds me of my dad who had "car shirts" from the 70's that he wore till they fell apart. Wish it was in the fog, but it's still very awesome! gmv!
