    Default Post Your Early Work Thread

    I have been using Xara vector software for quite a few years now. I don't draw too much anymore. Must be an age thing. I thought it would be interesting to see where we all started. I hope other TG members will join me in posting some of their old work each day in this thread. I thought it would be an interesting stroll down memory lane. I think of some of the work from years ago that I would like to see again, and looking it all up would be a pain. So dig out those old drawings TG'ers and post them in this thread. I'm going to start off with the very first drawing I did with vector software. Now don't let me down, add your early work to this thread, I know you still have it.

    The first drawing I did to learn Xara was a Jag, referenced from a photo.

    Lost all of my old ones due to a computer crash. No, it wasn't backed up.
    This is the oldest I think I can find. About 2004.

    Great idea. Here's a collection of my early work that I submitted to Xara for their clipart library. My favorite was the traction engine. No longer have the original files

    Good idea, Gray, thank you. I do remember this was inspired by an excellent tutorial that Gary did in 2000 (I think) on neon lighting but have no idea why I thought of the rest of the image! I think I could do the perspective better now.

    It's so good to look back on old work from everyone. Sorry you lost it all. Ron.
    Let's keep it going folks, there's lots more Xara work to show. It doesn't have to be old. If you've just started using Xara, post your early work here. Don't be bashful. If you've been lurking now is your chance to show us.

    One of my favorite bikes growing up was a Norton Commando. I always seemed to own and drive BSA's, but I had a friend who owned several Norton's. This drawing I think was my first motorcycle in Xara. Must be around 12 years ago.
