Default 1978 Pace Car Replica pencil drawing !!

I don't know why I didn't post this here earlier! I did this back in July of 2011 after I bought my current Corvette. I never thought to post it here, even as I was posting the 68 here last night. I really want to have prints made of this one, it's 14x11 inches and I think one of the best factory Corvette paint schemes ever. Would there be an interest in this from anyone for prints? They arent expensive individually, but would cost me a bit up front and I'm a little aprehensive about spending money if they won't do well. I am currently going through a divorce and this is my hobby and my other passion away from work( and my two kids). This drawing took almost 30 hours from start to finish, the emblem was almost four hours by it's self!!Any comments, yays or nays?

Default Great Job!!!

Sluggballz,

You asked for comments, well, both your drawings are great. I have a few friends Down Under with '78 Pace cars, I reckon they'd be interested in buying one, so let us know if you are planning a "print run." I have two '74s, a white coupe and a red convertible and would love to have a good pencil drawing of either (or both!). BTW, "itself", not "it's self", is the correct spelling. (You did ask for comments.)

Regards from Down Under.

That's awesome! Any chance of talking you into doing a Silver Anniversary drawing?

I'd definitely be interested in purchasing one. Also might be interested in discussing your interest in other years with our club logo as part of the drawing.

Wow- what a talent ! great job.

I really admire pople with that vision and talent - -wonderful stuff!

Bravo - The pace car drawing is awesome but I would really like a print of the '68. I am fairly confident you would have no problem selling both prints to the member here on CF. Just by judging from the positive responses that have been generated from both threads. I think you would make a pretty decent profit. Food for thought. Mark me down for the '68 print. Regards BK3

I like the '68 better, but I think it's just because I like the car itself better. Both outstanding pieces of work!

Ya know what might be interesting? A time lapse vid of one of your drawings taking shape. It would probably be a lot of extra work, but I think it would be fascinating to watch!


Keep the shiny side up!

If it's possible I think this has even more detail than the 427/435 car. Your work deserves all the interest it's getting. I hope you can figure out a way to market your talent.

I think "itself" is Australian rules!! Thanks for the comments!

I have visited the local printer today, and was given a price quote that I hope I can live with So I will be dropping off three pieces tomorrow morning for printing, the 68 vert, the 78 pace car, and a 2013 Gt 500. It will be a week to 10 days before they are done. If you would like to see some of my other stuff, visit here-

Thanks again everybody for all of the positive comments, I've been on the fence over this for along time......

that's real nice work. like some of the others, i couldn't draw a stick person without screwing it up, so i am really impressed with your talent.
if they weren't too expensive, i would have interest in a copy also.
