I'm right there with you, but you know what, maybe we are both underestimating ourselves, because sometimes I will look back at a doodle I've done and think it's not bad.

I'd love to see you while you are drawing, don't know how you manage to get that level of reality in your pics.

Awesome!

Fantastic! How long have you been drawing? (Hint: if you say "a year" I am chucking all of my art supplies and taking up fishing!)

I am almost 60 now. When I was very young, my grandmother gave me an Etch a Sketch. I learned to draw with that toy. I still own several and draw when I have time. In 7th grade, I took a mechanical drafting class in school. This was before computers and CAD. Using pencils, triangles, a T-square and sawdust on the paper. Pretty sure the drafting was the biggest influence.

Interesting how you started into drawing. Yay for grandmothers! When my grand kids come over I let them paint and play with play-doh and color and draw and do other crafts. Their parents don't like to have the mess but at my house I don't worry about that too much. It's more important that they be exposed to things to find their talents.

So it's possible to do do such drawings with just a pencil? Hehehe....my drawings look like dogpoop in comparison, but knowing that such a thing is possible makes me really eager to work even harder to imrpove my own art...You could say i am all fired up now. I am gonna make even better art.

Yes you can do it. Drawing is much like learning to play the guitar. Every time you get a chance, put the pencil to paper. Good guitarists carry their instrument with them and play it every time they get the chance. Over time, you will get better.

Your drawings are awesome! The Triumph engine is mindblowing... What format of paper do you use? A4, A3?

Most, like the Triumph are 14" x 17" Strathmore 300 Series Bristol board. I also do a few larger pieces at 18" x 24".

This is Acey and May. These are rescued dogs just lounging around on the couch. I drew this several years ago for a customer in Chicago.

I drew this from a photo taken behind my home on the bayou. It sold at auction to benefit a wildlife conservation group.

This drawing of a flatfender Jeep will be on 1,000 T-shirts in May at an event for wounded soldiers.
Pretty cool seeing your art on everyone's backs.

Congratulations Blue Angel! The "Wheelers For The Wounded" made the right choice!

Out of curiosity, is "Blue Angel" a nickname or job description?

Thank you for the nice comment.

Years ago I had a blue Jeep. We went offroading a lot and the crew I ran with had a call sign on the CB radios. One day someone called me the "Blue Angel" and the nickname stuck.
