Your awesome thanks can’t wait to see itCanaculus said:I'm happy it's not just me at least.
kallililly1973 your profile picture is done. Once the issue with the pictures gets cleared up, I'll upload it.
Thank you very much !!!Cold&warm said:I have been 2 months without access to the net (my old computer went on strike forever). I just got back to the net and Fishlore. Opened this thread a minute ago and saw so far only your last post: absolutely STUNNING!!
How I wished I had half of your talent ….(even a mere 10%would do).
Love that car ! Probably one of the wildest and most beautiful cars to come out of the 20th century .Cold&warm said:Wonderful !!
Then, please draw the car I have (literally) dreamt of for decades: the LamborghinI Miura.
I first saw it shortly after the first were (hand-) made in Sant'Agata Bolognese, on a small picture in a magazine for kids I went to read in a childhood friend's home. I remember it was kind of light blue (probably metallic).
It was the fastest production car at the time.
Some 20 years later I saw in Rome for the first (and only) time a Miura in the real. It was red - I do not like red cars too much.
The picture is not bad at all, in that is taken from an original angle.Canaculus said:Love that car ! Probably one of the wildest and most beautiful cars to come out of the 20th century .
How's this as a pic? Would this work?
Hey no problem ! I might even do both!Cold&warm said:The picture is not bad at all, in that is taken from an original angle.
IMO a picture like the one below represents the car better, though, and that for a number of reasons:
- this version of the Miura has eyelashes
- there is visual stress on the very little clearance under the car: the Miura was (still is?) one of the lowest cars built; a girl in the English classes I took in Rome, who knew of my enthusiasm for the car told me she had seen one in Montecarlo drive by and that it came not higher than her hip/waist. I had seen mine from a (high) coach, too high to see the beautiful line of the car, as a matter of fact, it left me with a note of disappointment.
- the picture below better highlights the "grit" of Bertone's design which at the same time is very fluent ("a very elegant car" was the comment of the elderly lady who owned the Roman bookstore where I bought my studybooks, when I showed her a picture in a book on the Miura that she had for sale (unfortunately too expensive for a student like me).
* I apologize for being demanding: please do as you see fit, the outcome will be great anyway...
And thanks for granting my request.
No problem ! I also realized That the picture I posted of the blue Miura is actually a toy Miura. If you look at how flat the lights are, and the lack of detail on the engine lourves and how thick the antenna on the roof is, you can tell.Cold&warm said:Wow! More than I could expect! Thank you!
I wonder what kind of a car is parked behind the LamborghinI Miura.
Maybe a De Tomaso? Or a Monteverdi? Funny, an Italian composer of centuries ago and a 20th century Swiss sports car builder with the same last name.
Edit: this YouTube footage is great, especially 2:11 - 2:51..
my battery is dying and I'm in my car...Canaculus said:TA-DAAAA !
Your welcome !!!Cold&warm said:my battery is dying and I'm in my car...
Got home meanwhile (must get myself a car-charger for my notebook - my old cell phone does not support internet).
I must admit, I expected something real good, but you managed to make a drawing that goes even far beyond my expectations. Bra - vis - sI - mo! Thank you!!
(I had hoped there would the glossy effect of the light from reflectors on the paint of a brandnew car, and there it is.)
BTW, this shade of red I do like.
Woohoo! your goona do an updated pic of the puppies standing on their bay window stage? Thanks a lot!! Best of luck to you on your school year!Canaculus said:Your welcome !!!
kallililly1973 the picture you requested is coming soon. I'm working on different picture right now, so I should be finished with yours sometime next week (school started groan).

Yes it’s all good still very cool... jetty looks like he has a red hat and shirt on jorjie in the window looks perfectCanaculus said:kallililly1973
I'll definitely have to do some of those other ones .
See what I meant about too many "flat" colors?
Yes, I will draw the Lagonda. The old one, right?Cold&warm said:(In)formal request:
What about the Aston Martin Lagonda?
It has an extremely stylish, IMO still unique design.
Do you ever draw wildlife, like whales, deer, elk, just to mention a few?
If I had the gift of drawing and/or playing a musical instrument (the piano) I wouldn't do anything else.
Yes, the old one, thank you!Canaculus said:Yes, I will draw the Lagonda. The old one, right?
Not yet . I just did that picture of the crocodile on the previous page.
I will definitely draw the Lagonda.Cold&warm said:Yes, the old one, thank you!
When the Lagonda came out (In illo tempore), it was a jaw-dropper and frankly, I still find its line outright "majestic".
You did a great job on the crocodile, but I think they are enormously scary. I would suggest you try your hand at whales. After all, they live off the coast(s?) of North America. As far as I know, one would not find them in the Mediterranean...
You mentioned Spanish in a previous post. A few days ago I met a few young doctors with their mum from Brazil. I like the sounds of Portuguese from Portugal even more. It has some special, very beautiful sounds that are not to be found - as far as I know - in other European languages. The grammar is very similar to the Spanish framework. I may repeat myself (too lazy to look up my old posts), but when learning Latin, Greek, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese - and also French, although it uses personal pronouns, it is a good idea to have a special eye for the verb. In those languages the verb is much more "in command" than in, let's say, English. (If your dad or your mum happens to be a comparative linguistic scholar, just ignore what I wrote, hahaha ...)
Talking about Spanish, did I provide this link? (I use this course, trying my hand at Indonesian and Swahili):
Mind you, the fact that the tutor's pronunciation of English is not flawless, is a plus.
Corvette ZR-1.Cold&warm said:Thanks a lot!
- Is the portrait an autoritratto del pittore (self-portrait of the master)?
- Sorry for being so ignorant, but eh ... what supercar is number three?
Funny, two days ago I was wondering if your studies or other (seasonal?) occupations caused a pause in this thread and here you are with new art work.Canaculus said:Here are two more!
They did indeed put a pause in my artwork.Cold&warm said:Funny, two days ago I was wondering if your studies or other (seasonal?) occupations caused a pause in this thread and here you are with new art work.
Sure! I'd love to draw some old American cars!Cold&warm said:During the Christmas season I found some videos on very fancy American automobiles from the 1950s and earlier. If I find them I'll post them. Maybe they could serve as inspiration?
That would have been the "Wondering what everyone looks like thread." And yes, with that picture the main concern was the FerrarI and LamborghinI in the photo, as they are two very rare and expensive cars which I happened to spot from down the street. Yeah it really isn't a good photo for that thread, as it was a very sunny 90 degree day, and thus I had to squint.Cold&warm said:I had a hard time to find this thread back.
As I have said before, I have quite a problem to wrestle myself away from the stone age. It shows very painfully when using the web with a forum like this one.
While I was searching for your artwork thread, all of a sudden, I do not know how it happened, there was a thread on my screen with all kinds of pictures of people, also yours.
It looks as if your main concern were the cars, for the picture is taken from far or with a wide angle.
I surmise the car you never heard of from the three we were dealing with in the "bestie" thread is the Graham Paige.
I obviously do not know much about cars, but my mum repeated the name from her childhood, middle or late 1920s - early 1930s, I guess. She said it was the only car that was around at the time. I must say that my maternal grandfather - BTW a devoted aquarist, animal (among others birds, deer) and plant lover - displayed an exquisite taste in whatever he undertook. He also had a marvelous bass baritone voice.
I cannot ask my mum anymore about the car, for she already joined her daddy in the place where no cars are needed anymore.
Many thanks in advance!
