    I had a bad week, but in a good way, and it's centered around this little coupe. I will reveal more in my next post. Stay tuned....[​IMG]

    I like1940s Tether Cars; especially the Dooling Frog.
    The Dooling Frog has chunky, weird lines but is totally cool.
    That's what inspired...
    The Frog Rod.

    My bad week began when my back filed a complaint with the pain department. I have three destroyed discs that wreak havoc on me on a daily basis, so I took the opportunity to defend myself with a fist full of vicodin, and all the time in the world to practice my digital stuff.

    I've been at war with the digital demon for awhile now. I felt like I needed to get over a bump in the road, so I could continue to progress as an artist. I found inspiration in Dart165's blueprint series awhile back, and thought that it would make a good canvas for me to do some simple stuff. I forced myself to use the proper tools for the job and after many hours, the coupe was born. I was happy with where it was going up to the point when some jackass hit a power pole near my place. I lost power just long enough to have my work go out the window because in my heavily medicated state I forgot to save my work. I learned three important things that day...

    1. save your work.
    2. SAVE YOUR WORK!
    3. There is a limit to how many prescription meds I can take before I can't function...

    Back to the drawing board.

    I didn't want to give up, but didn't want to do the same thing again, so I decided to change things up a bit. This was my next attempt. [​IMG]

    I liked it, but I made a bunch of mistakes, and my heart was still set on doing the coupe again. I popped more Vicodin and set out to fondle my digitalia, and this is what I ended up with...

    It's still a work in progress, but I think I made it over that damn bump in the road. I put together a " Process Pictorial" to work on my graphic design skills.

    Thanks for putting up with my rant, and hope everyone has a good weekend.

    I recently found this old small water color painting I did in 1984 while cleaning up some boxes.

    I used a photo of Walt Leeman in Hot Rod magazine as sample...

    My thoughts go out to everyone caught in the storm affected areas of the U.S. I know that sounds lame though compared to the destruction I'm seeing on the news...
