Hi Everyone

Here is my latest in stipple on bristol. A 60's Formula 1 car in which provided extra length at the front of the car and fading out quickly behind in which I hoped to provide a sense of speed.

C & C always welcome

Nice work! I think I would like to see it grounded (a little foreground) but that may be just me.

Lovely job. You certainly achieved that feeling of speed:clap:

Hiya Craig

So is the drawing that you said you were planning? It's looking pretty good to me. I really thing your gonna need more darker tones to give it some contrast.

Thank you everyone. I didn't play around with any digital effects other than cropping before posting. The actual working area is about 3.5" x 18" and it appears I was shaking too much giving it a softer look to it than it actually appears. I did not spray it with any fixative and I may work on it abit for some added contrast, but I was eagar to show it off.

Thank you, taking everything you say into stride and hoping to improve my work.

I can see why you would be eager to show this off. very nice. I have to agree with both Dan and Ethan. but I really like the cropping length and that its just not a "sqare" picture. that in itself adds an interesting feature.

I like the size of this. It does show speed. With a little more work on your values it will really pop.
