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).

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.

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?

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.

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..

Close-up takes.

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.

Not sure either. Maybe a late generation Espada? There's a blue Rolls-Royce behind it, that's for sure.
Then there's also what looks like a FerrarI Belinetta Boxer, with a pre-war Bentley behind it. Then that blue car on the right looks like a FerrarI Daytona Spyder.

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.

(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, I will draw the Lagonda. The old one, right?

Not yet . I just did that picture of the crocodile on the previous page.

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.

Any particular species of whale?
I take Latin as my language course.

Thank you.
As for the whales, any of the big big guys would do, i.e. Eubalaena australis, glacialis or japonica (do not know the English names). Ever since I was a child I have been intrigued by the fact that such enormous animals had whalebone to seeve plancton out of the water.

Talking about Latin, every year on (1-)2 November I get the clear sensation Italy goes back to (pre-)Roman times, as the people go in masses to visit the tombs of their dear ones. On the Roman catholic calendar that day is dedicated to the memory of the deceased, but - it seems to me - it is so deeply rooted, that it goes back to times way earlier than the arrival of christianity at Italy's shores.
I live in rural Southern Italy where it is especially strong. As a missed cultural anthropologist, I take great delight in observing this deeply-felt aspect of Mediterranean culture..

Corvette ZR-1.

Haha, that isn't me. Its a portrait of a famous DJ, TheFatRat. Look him up on YouTube. One warning though; his music is veeery catchy.

They did indeed put a pause in my artwork.

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?

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!

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.

Yes it was the Graham Paige. Interesting name for a vehicle model. Sounds like someones name.
It's interesting how the everyday cheap cars of yesteryear have risen to such high esteem today. Even the humble Model T still sells for 20 grand, even though it's original price was $850 USD, about 23 grand in today's money.
It'd be interesting to see the price of original low-mileage 2020 Honda Civics in 50 years.
