worked up this ball point pen drawing of that Rebel as a gasser-- the 'Rebel Rouser'.
Made some copies and did some color studies, liking the two tone green on Ed's and hoping
to make that the predominate color scheme. Worked up the gasser parts from pics from an
old AMT Nova funny car kit.
Here's where we be at the moment. Just got me a montrous new Dell and the Adobe Creative
Suite 4, and have been doing some exploring. Playing back in PhotoShop again and lovin' it.
This is a cleaned up version of the original ball pointy pen drawing with some revisions made.
Thought this would be a nice little project to practise on, still need a lot of practise with the lasso
tool. So far I just cut away the car and all the smoke, shadow area, etc, layed in a blue/white
gradient on the background, cleaned up the car layer a bit and merged the two layers. Plan is to
follow the color study more or less, still not sure about the 'Rebel Rouser' for colors yet, and hope
to add some more lettering; cubic inches, gasser class, etc, in PhotoShop.
As usual, I learned something-- really gotta start with a better drawing-- much less clean up that way.
Wouldn't mind finding a reasonably priced old Johan Rambler to build up like this here, but I'm
probably better off not adding another project to the bench, and just 'build' this one in PhotoShop.
