Hello members of Model Cars Forum! I see that this portion of the forum gets little attention… but then you guys and gals are largely modelers and not artists by choice. So… I thought I would start a thread I will entitle “SketchPad Art” because this is the place to request and post SketchPad subjects that were printed in past issues of MCM, Hot Rod, SAE, Rod & Custom, etc. (Provided I have them available)
BUT….Not just from my drawing board mind you but the request could be toward any artist including Harry and Brad to be used as a reference for all!
What brought this on is that I received a request for an image yesterday that was printed in an issue of MCM awhile back. I couldn’t for the life of me remember the issue… but I sure as heck had the image so I sent it via PM.
But… thought that you guys would like to have it here as well for everyone’s edification and so… TADA!

Anything else you’d like to see , one only need ask here or via PM!



Incidentally, I am also a member of Motorburg! Motorburg is a forum for automotive artists. Charley Smith, Ed Newton and other big names in the industry originally established the site as a sharing experience for like minds and we continued to grow. Members have a lot of fun discussing old art, business practices, computer illustration along with actual airbrush work. It is fun… but by invitation only in order to become a member. However, viewers are not restricted from seeing some of the fantastic and inspirational designs produced by some of the best in the business. (not me… I am only moderately talented compared to these guys :lol: )

All that, and they have a model car section too!

As usual, another great art piece. I would love to see your take on a modern sports car. Or even a modern prototype race car.

Thank you Brendan. I will consider that for a future piece... nothing in my archives like that currently. But good idea!

This piece I did for Revell prior to the release of the chopper series. The guys at Revell needed something in color to give them direction and to show the public once the project was announced. There are 4 images produced from photos of the prototype mockup and the pictures were originally posted on Revell's web site for a time. :lol:

Sorry, No! Pretty much required that the subjects be available as plastic kits. HRM, Custom Classic Trucks and R&C images were not always under that restriction... but instead dictated by what the editor wanted to see. So Chev, Dodge and even Ford from the mid 70's through most of the 80's are pretty much untouched territory by me. Harry? Brad? Anyone?

Until then... I think this is from that era. :lol:

Not me. Don't do trucks much. Actually, not at all...

Harry, I like the first one and the last one, but that second one, that's gonna take a while to grow on me.

I also like 82-92 Camaros and Firebirds.

I think that "out there" is a bit of an understatement. I wonder what it would look like with a '69 tail on it?
