Indy Rod

Recommended Posts

An old pic I did for a Rod & Custom contest of a track style rod inspired by 60s vintage Indy racers.

Extremely cool! What media? And on what type of paper?

I like it!  Nice drawing too.  I used to design/draw cars until my teens, but were always side views.

Just saw this. Nice work all around. Great design/proportions and wonderful art technique. What's not to like?

The first thing I think of when seeing that windscreen is "XR 6" by AMT.

Tamiya made a 1/24 Lotus 7.  Most would say that's close enough.

Nice work Richard!! Great design and technique. I'm impressed by the attention paid to the adjustment angle of the mirrors!

Was that the contest where the winners would have their entry drawn by a "pro" artist? I seem to recall submitting an entry to a similar contest. Not as well drawn as yours, of course :D

I've already contacted Richard some time back to get his permission to do just that.

I think that was the one.  I know mine was one of the ideas that made it into the magazine, though the artist put his own spin on the idea.
