    Default British sports cars

    Hi folks!
    Long time since I visited the forum - day-time job keeping me occupied.
    Thought you might like to see my latest hobby project (illustration that is...).

    Nice rags. I thought the blue one looked like an MG and I see it is. Both cars have similar lines and at first I thought they both were MG's but I was wrong there, I don't know anything about the Healy. When I was younger and got out of the Marine Corps I had a couple 2 seaters, but, they weren't of that caliber. My first one was a white Triumph Spitfire which I put a wide racing stripe on and it looked cool. After that was a red Fiat Spider, neither had any get up and go, still they were kind of fun. My brothers and some other kids picked up my Spitfire and set up over the curb onto the grass, it had independent rear suspension and the rear wheels folded in so they though that they broke something and none of us knew any better, but, when I drove off the wheels went back to normal so we all learned something. Then one of my brothers bought a tan MGA, now there was a car, much better than either of my 2 seaters had been.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    I say gentlemen, thank you for the kind words.
    As for Triumph Spitfire and Fiat Spider - really nice cars. Maybe I should do something along those lines...
    Just to show that practice do hone your quality, I've included a pair of early ones (2009/2010 sort of).
    Usually do aircraft profiles but cars are a nice alternative.
    Darn - forgot the wipers etc. on the Healy (which is a 1967 Healy 3000 owned by my neighbor by the way).

    Your first Healy is a very good drawing got the look right. Think both the frog eye and the MG A there is something not right with the front ends of both cars but it's only minor. Keep posting when you do more as you have got talent.
    Design is thinking made visual.

    Well, I did have another one in the pipe-line. Thought you may want to see it.
    Seems to get stuck on British sports vehicles...
