chop it, the fins look awesome.
I know I'm going against popular opinion here, but I think it needs to be sectioned, with radiused rear wheel wells. Maybe mild chop and section? To me the car just looks out of proportion.
I like 63cadguy's the best. Good Job!
How about just the pictures?
I love the slightly laid back a-pillars and graceful flow of the entire thing. I'm not too into the '49-51 Fords but if they were all chopped like this, I would be.
My 2 dr sedan choopped 6" front and 7 1/2" rear.
nice,,,that color looks very similar to a 56 olds color im considering
It's 65 GM Evening Orchid with a little blue frost pearl in the clear.
id chop it a little myself just like the animated pics that was done. that looks the best to me. your car is going to be something straight out of the little books, im still looking at it as my desktop background drooling all in my keyboard!!!!
ive decided against hardtopping it,,,the car will get a mild chop (2", 2 1/2") with slightly slanted pillars,,
will get it laid out this weekend, and go from there........
Hey Kustom777, you got my attention with the fins. I felt like doing a quickie drawing of your shoebox.I don't really have a opinion on it, I just wanted to see what kind of potential it would have like your talking about. Fins have got to make a comeback!Sorry about the Lincoln hubcaps, they were just esy to draw. Maybe extend the edges of the fins further if you go full custom. Enjoy.
After I put those last drawings on you said you wanted solid posts, slanted. That would be easier I bet. Thats the way I drew it the first time. That thing starts to take on the little book look , especially if you get the right color or colors on it. It would have a look all its on.
you are very talented.......those drawings are excellent,,,,,,
i actually considered using that desoto trim too,,,but will probably use 58 ford fairlaine trim,,,,really love your renderings!
With 58 Fairlane trim...
Thanks Kustom777, I was just havin some fun. JamesD ,thats what I was thinking. I like this thread. I dont know if some mild form of bubble skirts would look good on this thing if you go full all out custom.
That Fairlane trim is really a good idea - it helps take a fair bit of visual height out of the body. I really like where this is going!
wow,,james d....that photoshop absolutely knocks my socks off,,,,,
i knew that trim was gonna work,,,i love it,,,,,the color is even great..
I like the animation, very cool...
I like this one a lot, full on serious custom right there...
Hey no problem. The Fairlane trim is just kind of eyeballed on there - its not to scale or anything, so your results may vary, but the idea is really a good one. If I can do anything else for you, let me know.
I have to say - you certainly seem to have a thing for trying out the unusual - and I really like where this one is going. You just have to promise to finish this one, and not sell it like the Caddy!
james.,....could you possibly make another version with slightly leaned b pillars, like the drawing by cory, and add some gold color inside the fairlaine trim?.....thanks a lot,,,
I just put this on the art show.
cool,,,,,,i love that pic..
wow very nice with the chop. I would like to see it with bubble skirts
after seeing cory's rendering, i think you are right,,,of course, they'll have to be made from scratch,,as if i don't have enough work to do already,,,thanks a lot cory,,hahahah
thank you james d,,,
man,,you are great with the photoshops....
how did you learn to do that so well?...i have photoshop, and am just learning,,,is it a matter of practicing,,or do you have some tips?
I´m a technical illustrator - kind of comes with the turf!
In fact the side spear is done in Adobe Illustrator, which is just a bit easier when creating a shape like that from scratch.
But, really its just practice. I still get told stuff by my colleagues that I don´t know, but I seem to do alright most of the time. If you want to ask anything specific then feel free.
I wish I had your metalwork skills!!
Here ya go chop 10 inches out and slam it !!!!
like this more pics to come
Colour choices - what do you think?
I like the black and copper myself, but I like black cars anyway.
