    Default Mustang Sally got a different Car

    Why drive a Mustang when you can drive a yellow roadster?

    Sally! now that wee car is something else I see your new wheels are there the lamps are great, the air vents, how did you draw them and your chrome I may be wrong but I think it was drawn not a chrome plugin and the background great stuff. I'll do a swap with you, my Aston Martin for your wee roadster.

    That is a surprise, Sally - gals drawing cars!
    Everything most expertly done.

    A drawing of which you can be proud I think.

    One criticism - delete the rear nearside wheel - 'cos it would not really be visible at that angle of view and 'cos it looks as if it has come off.

    Nice spokes >grin<

    "Intbel" ... aka Raymond. "Can't" is not an option.

    Compliance is futile. Resistance is futile. Just do your own thing an' ignore 'em.

    I thought that was the spare.

    Anyway, nice illustration. Too bloody windy for my liking though.

    Great image Sally. Excellent chrome & spoked wheels.

    Raymond - That's a spare tyre, just like mine since I've given up smoking.

    Fantastic illustration. Love the detail work. Now if my wife would just let me get one of those.

    Egg, the spare tire came with the picture, there was some guy sitting in the car, driving it, thought after all my work, I deserved a spin in it. Closest I'll get I'm afraid. Hey, look, I'm a road hog, take my half right down the middle so if I drive from the left or from the right, it is good to see that a blonde moment is universally zaney.

    Yes, Norman, the chrome is hand drawn with the mouse, really have almost stopped using the tablet with Xara after doing Egg's tutorial on extracting a cow. The pen tool just sits and stairs at me until I need to do callouts, don't use if for much anymore. And the pencil tool is just used to change nibs and brushes.

    Sorry, only have room for one rider at a time.

    Glad you like it.

    I drew L-1011's and P-3's for Lockheed before it was Lockheed Martin. My college instructor in tech graphics thought I drew like a guy.

    Guess I am in good company with my peers, but I did forget to draw a line where you climb into the car. Now you all get to guess where.

    As you can see, I have a funny-looking spare tire. It has been noted, catalogued and certainly will be the subject of future posts.

    Watch out guys, Sally's behind the wheel.
    Another great car vector. And coming from Sally, it is a big surprise.
    The flood of car posts is going to drive somebody up the wall... .
