Hey, I'm the first to respond on the Friday art show! woo hoo! I'm finally somebody, things are going to start happening to me now.
"Santa's Toys" Ready...Get set....
High-Boy Roadster at Night
Finished the painting.
I use Photoshop quite often around here and while not pencil to paper it gives me and many others pause to ponder what if and perhaps have a smile or a good chuckle. Is it art...I think so...so there probably will be a Christmas Art Show but many of you may be away only of course by crowbar......so heres an early wish to you all...Should you not celebrate Christmas I also extend Peace, Joy and Happiness to you and your families as well.
Awesome start guys!!!!!!
Always look forward for FAS day!

Here's a rendering I did that is a concept of what a Cadillac sport platform might have look like back in the day and done in an attempt to capture younger upscale buyers and to compete with the Corvette. I call it the "Vista Dome" and it's a bit radical but cool at the same time. In later years they did try to broaden their market with the introduction of the Allant'e but it was a lackluster design with lackluster results.
Pretty intriguing concept do you have a front view ?Interested to see how you would envision the grille and hood.
Wow Bob...Jaw dropping gorgeous.... Looks like a fine art air brushed work... Superb!!!!
Great start as always, thanks for the likes ! Did you say High-Boy ?
HO - HO - HO !
POP UP CHRISTMAS CARD
Our resident Photoshop expert “The Moose” gave me a great idea for anyone to make and send a custom Christmas card to friends. It is a simple pop up card with only two slices or cuts in them. If you want to hide the cuts, simply add in another similar card stock on the outside and glue it to the one with the cut.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1. Printer paper, photograph of a car, family, or both
2. A thicker, smooth card stock paper that will be sturdy
3. An envelope that fits or the custom pattern below.
4. Xacto knife, cutting board, etc.
1. Select the photograph, size it to your liking, making sure that it is in focus.
2. Select the practice printer paper and do the whole project first
3. Fold the paper in half
4. Open it up and measure out where you want the pop up step to stick out.
5. Draw the thin pencil lines on the sides where you will be making cuts.
6. Once the cuts are made, go to the top and bottom to make a gentle
crease/fold. It helps the pop out step do its thing correctly.
7. Practice opening and closing the folded card to check out the pop out step.
8. Make you corrections on the practice paper.
9. Once the cuts allow the pop out section to fold correctly, then you are ready.
Steps for the final:
1. Make your outside card from the card stock paper
2. Make your cuts
3. Help the folds fold/lean correctly
4. Measure the area where the photograph will be glued down
5. Adjust the photograph size to fit
6. Print out your photograph on card stock
7. Glue to the front of the fold out surface that will lay down.
8. You may use color card stock, plain white or add your own color
9. Above and below the pop out photo, there is plenty of space for greetings, family notes, etc.
If your mailing list is 25+, it will take a while, but it is still “doable.” Customize each one for each family member or friend.
