    Thank you, Eric! See, with a little help, I can get it, sometimes...

    Gray,
    Thanks. I was anxious about how to go about doing the upholstery. Being the lazy person I am, I was very fortunate it came out the way it did; although I know others could do a much better job of it.

    Wow this is just great. I am amazed at the amount of detail you have on this drawing. This looks to be one of the more detailed drawings you have done.

    Thank you, Ray. I really appreciate you saying that.
    IMHO, I've found that when attempting to draw a photo-realistic subject, it helps a great deal to add as much detail as is practical (of course, what's practical depends on the artist, I guess). It gives the drawing more realism. This is especially true in my case as my accuracy in drawing, leaves a lot to be desired.

    Of course, to add that kind of detail requires a lot of research to find images of small objects in the drawing so as to draw them as accurately as possible. Can be very, very time consuming!

    Hi
    Very sorry to hijack this thread but it seems the only way I can post a msg or contact ANYONE re talkgraphics forum. I've been a member since 2014 apparently, and have just come back (yesterday) looking for some DPX help and can't find anyway, anywhere, to post a question. Also can't find any direct way to communicate with a forum administrator for help on this.

    Would appreciate anyone's direction.. i'll watch this thread.

    cheers,
    Shannon

    123seven, look at the various forums, maybe you can find one to suite your needs. If you chose a wrong forum it's no big deal one of the mods can move it to it's proper place, that way you do not need to hijack someone else's thread.

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

    And click the "+ Post New Thread" button at the top of the forum you chose to start a new thread. Don't forget to give your thread a title that captures the essence of what you're asking or sharing.

    I must admit, I prefer the "original" pastel green shade. It seems to me to be more in keeping with the time period ... but I've no idea why it seems that way. It's probably not logical to assume they used that colour then.

    Hi Keith,
    Most pictures you see of these cars from back in the 20s will appear in black, rarely in another color. I posted a few colors to show the benefits of "Named Colors".

    And, I'd imagine, to make them look more attractive in our colorful world.
