    Thanks to some encouraging words from a new Hamber that I met at the North GA HAMB and Grits meeting, I've decided to learn how to pinstripe. Here's the results of the first time I've ever attempted to do it. Yeah I know it's shit.

  8. wow. rockin show this week guys. no contriband here this week as I've spent like 50 of the last 80 hours at the office. lots to comment on but time is my enemy here.

    Nice show everyone, all the X-MAS related art is pretty cool.

    I always wondered what my dentist was doing in the other room, when he left the gas on.....
  21. checkin in a little late, don't try and burn a dvd, download fotos and surf the hamb at the same time, it don't work, after seeing lill billy's pinstriping practice i had to jump in. i got some mack double 00s for my son and i to play around with over the holidays to pull him away from all his electronic gagets. I've been an artest guy for a long time, done calligraphy, hand painted signs, but i gotta hand it to you striper guys.
    how can you do those lines and then do it again inverted? here is my first evil attempt, my dog makes better marks on the floor when his tail gets stuck in the housepaint.
    got a long winter ahead if i plan to pinstripe my daily driver this summer
    keep it up lill billy, you got a good start
    love the pinstripe metal from acme speed shop
    squindo-nice painting
    merry christmas everybody
    you pinstripers rock

    Last year's art. I've been too busy to sketch something new. Happy Holidays! Peace and axlegrease.
  28. Billy:
    If you are going to practice curves over and over,
    do right and left curves at the same time.
    One way,then the other way.

    Symmetrical designs will have curves in matching pairs,
    makes sense to practice that way.
    Or you risk being better one way than the other.

    Wow, awesome work as per usual from everyone. Nothing gets me more motivated to keep at it than a browse through the latest art show! Well done evryone! Props to you!

    Been a while since I posted mainly as I lost my email account and couldnt log in, hence my new screen name. (used to be joe deertay)

    Anyways, three different approaches, first a quick pencil ink and acrylic pic. Tried to keep it quick, and timed myself to under 30mins...


    Next, a slick rendering (see portfolio section of my site for a tutorial on how to do these! Click Signature!) This is for a series of renderings based on cheap(ish) British tin. Not totally appropriate for here but thought i'd share anyway. It's based on a 60's MGB GT.


    And last, an acrylic on mdf painting. Excuse me if i've shown this before, but cant remember! :)


    Merry Christmas guys and gals, hope you all have a good one!!
