For those of you who aren't too familiar with illustration done with colored pencils, what you're looking at here is pretty labor-intensive. A lot of time went into this!

Thanks everyone for looking and commenting. The 32 Ford is 16x13 inches and the Chrysler is 18x15 inches. Harry, you're right about the time element. For anyone who hasn't worked in colored pencil the time compared to say a watercolor or oil painting is 2 to 3 times as long. To get the full impact from the colors one needs to lay down successive layers of color. Being transparent, generally the more layers, the more intense the colors can become. I got hooked on colored pencils about 5 years ago and although I still do some work with an airbrush I find this medium to be very satisfying.
I was a Technical Illustrator for an aircraft manufacturer during part of my working career and I certainly can appreciate the work that went into your colored pencil illustrations. Fantastic work.
Where is the link to the '32? I didn't see it.
Do you have a Fotki link?

Thanks Harry. It's nice to have a forum for car art. Other CP artists appreciate the work but car guys can really enjoy them. I'll have more in the coming weeks.

Thanks for posting your outstanding art. I'm very impressed and look forward to seeing future posts. I would like to see your airbrush and othe medium too. I agree with you, it's nice having a forum for car art. I check the category all the time. I enjoy seeing works from artist as accomplished as you, Harry & Jairus but I also enjoy viewing the work and sketches of all level artists as well. So all you other artist out there... more posts please
