    Here's one of the group of drawings that Kenny Youngblood did for me back in the 70's. Don't have any idea what it would cost now, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be cheap.:D Sure glad to have them now though. :cool:

    Always amazes me the perception people have about artists...

    "Oh, it won't take you that long since you're so talented...$50.00 should cover it, right...??? "

    Right...!!! At that rate, maybe the artist earned $2.00 an hour...would you work for that little...???

    I do concept art too...only mine starts at more than $50.00...and goes up from there, depending on how detailed it is...and I don't do it on a computer...my art is all pen and ink, very detailed and time consuming.

    Would you pay your painter $50.00 to do ALL body work...??? All the upholstery for $50.00...??? Basically you're paying an artist for his talent, same as your paying anyone else in the automotive industry...

    Yeah time is definitely money. I draw a bit (mostly tattoo art) and I also do leather work which is very time consuming. So I get that its art and work. Just wasn't sure what they went for. There's alot of variety already posted. Maybe this is something that could be bartered?! A trade for a trade!

    I used to do a lot of aiirbrush renderings of bikes. 30-40 hours and then get insulted. One of these days I'll take it back up for my own pleasure.

    I think it is really neat looking with the narrow bottom. Did you do any other sketches of it?

    What is the idea behind the front suspension? It looks like quarter eliptics that are anchored on the axle end. Will it work like that?

    My'Bird, done by Steven Brown in Michigan. He also did a beautiful rendering of the '36 which my wife gave me for Christmas last year, but can't find a picture of right now. I'm a big fan!

    Brad did several conceptual drawings for me, as well as a few color pieces. He's a graduate of the Art Center College in Pasadena (where Foose went), and he's an automotive designer as well as an artist. Very knowledgeable and talented.

    Check this out for some more info

    http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=438746


    I've done renderings to help gain sponsorship when building a vehicle, at 17 i worked for a guy with OT big money builds. Now it really depends on the style you're after and what you're looking to get out of it. Multiple rendering pages will give more info but will cost more. I generally start at $300 for a single view and work up from there depending on how many views and if the person wants a full package of sketches along with finished renderings.

    Thanks, I got to know him and his excellent work, back in the 70's in So. Cal. He does have some great skills. Here's how the car turned out, after Carter applied the paint.:cool:

    Steve did a drawing of a '54 Chevy with a '51 Fastback roof for Rod & Custom in 1995. In 1999, I bought a '51 Chevy and went with a mid-60s mild custom finish and added '54 rear fenders and taillights. In 2009, he did a rendering showing 2 views of my car, with his shown in the background; it's too big to upload (over 3M), but can be seen at Rik Hoving's site: http://public.fotki.com/Rikster/11_...augie-holtkort-1951/stanfordartworkfeb09.html. The price shown for the green '39 pickup is accurate.

    I missed uploading these shots in my last message. The black and white is Steve's original from R&C, and the other is my Fastback from about a year ago.

    There are a TON of talented artists here and other places. My renderings start at $300.00 and go up. The trick is to find an artist whose style you like. We all have our distinct style, so we really aren't in competition. If you really dig the illustration, you'll be all the more inspired. You can't miss with the guys above. Good luck.

    Steve Stanford did the one for my roadster about eight years ago. Since he's a good friend he cut me a little slack on the price , but I would say you'll be paying around $500- $1200 for anything decent that you could actually use to build from . Here's the one Steve did and the finished car .

    This is what Rikster did for me email him he can tweak it just about any way you want & I felt it was very reasonable.
