      OK, show me your stuff. Here's a link to my photobucket account for my latest addition to my collection. It's a very rare 1933 Continental Flyer, the only known running Flyer in the western hemisphere. There is a restored Flyer in New Zealand. I'll buy one of your originals.

      Most automotive artists work from photos. I personally know quite a few of them as I was once on the art selection committee for the Meadow Brook Concours. All of the AFAS artists I've met work from photos, so I don't understand your point. Replicating a photograph is a very difficult thing to pull off, so it's not mere copying.

      Here's a painting that was made from a photograph I took. The artist borrowed the work for a show of AFAS artists and they placed it in the show's most prominent spot. I don't think that drawing from photographs is frowned upon in the automotive fine art world.

      can you explain your process?
      after seeing the photo and then your drawing i can't help but think it's traced.

      the attention to detail is remarkable, i would love to know how you do it and how long it takes you

      We're about to find out. I've commissioned our new friend from Poland to do a black and white drawing of a color photograph for me. He's agreed to send me progress pictures. Maybe he'll post a narrative with them.

      If it's common in the market it I'm not going to **** on przemson's thread but I'd be interested in exploring this topic if you want to make a thread in the Art/Design forum.

      Not only is it common, it's the norm. It has been the norm for hundreds of years. The great Dutch Master, Vermeer, used Optic Obscurahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camera_obscurato produce what some would call the finest works of the era. I don't see how this would change the value of the hand work.

      Here's a perfect example. I own the original of Dan McCrary's "Exhausted", that was clearly done from a photograph. That's why the reflections are so accurate. This is a watercolor, BTW.

      At that time, camera obscura was a tool for artists to create a more realistic painting. Now, thanks to the invention of the camera, creating realistic artwork is just a matter of pushing a button and developing film or transferring files. The artistic element is not gone though, as the photographer has to study light, color, composition to create their work.

      Many will use a photo as a reference for something more abstract or a different piece altogether.
      If you are copying someone else's photo, you are not doing any of the creative parts of creating artwork, instead taking the place of Kinko's. Yes, it's a laborious task to do by hand and not everyone has the patience or skill with a pencil.

      I'll speculate that in the case of a classic car photo, what is gained from a manual reproduction is a romantic and nostalgic look and feel that is consistent with the subject matter. It also allows the artist to enhance that feel with abstraction. Faces are indistinct, unnecessary details are removed. It changes from a photo of a specific event, "your car" and "your wife," to a timeless photo of "a car" and "a woman." It could be anyone at any point in time. Furthermore, if you took the photo and commissioned a manual reproduction, the piece has added meaning to you. All valid and good things.

      Great response. You obviously understand that art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

      Here's another pencil drawing that we have. The detail and composition is so fine that it looks like a photograph. This artist, too, uses photos of reality and combines them for his final layout. This is so far beyond the threshold of copying that I truly consider it art.
