Really? I wouldn't believe it if anyone wanted to start slinging idiotic insinuations about this guy's work after seeing the process on Barry's commission. That's talent. It all looks fantastic.

Oh well, don't bother responding, I made my point. I am just trying to preserve the integrity of the forum.
And no. I don't have work to show you. and you asking for me to show you work doesn't prove anything. I drew as a child and studied it so I know what I'm talking about even though i'm not good at it. And i'm not good at it because I didn't care enough to be.
What about the title? It says realistic car drawing. YEAH. Once again I have to spell it out for you that making copies of "real life" is not CREATIVE it means you're a copy machine with a heartbeat.
You're the one who said it's creative in one of your posts, not me.
I can't believe people are accusing this artist of not being creative. I would say he is very creative. Simply altering something doesn't imbue it with creativity. I will say that flat6guy's objections are well-reasoned and stated, so he's not being a typical douchy troll. He's simply wrong in this case.
So, by some estimates this 1:12 scale replica of a 1956 Continental Mark II engine is not creative? He merely scaled down the original. Used drawings and measuring tools to make an exact model of the original. Nope, not creative at all.
Nor this model of an Avanti, that's made out of stock sheet and dimentional brass. It's made from pictures and drawings. Nothing existed before the raw material and the drawings. That's creating something, just like a pencil drawing.
Guys, please, have a and relax a bit.
The drawing is PLENTY creative and I can't wait to see the finished product. Its also a picture of a CAR so its CAR RELATED and besides, the art forum has so little foot traffic in it compared to the lounge.
A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one."
