Would you like to see how the truck image turned out?

image

I just made up the design so there's no specific year depicted. I'd say some time in the late 30s or early 40s.
Ha! Notice the bird poop on the hood?

Is this a drawing? It looks like a photograph.

Yeah.... I know what you mean. A lot of people want artists to give them stuff for free.
Some of that might be the result of seeing those fast motion depictions of cartoonists drawing characters. They make it look like it only takes a few seconds and little effort.
I remember two occasions where people at work wanted me to dash off something quick while I was working. One wanted a picture of a wolf, and the other a whale. I tried to tell them I needed reference images to look at, but they just said.... Do the best you can, as if I had some perfect detailed image of those animals in my head that I could reproduce on paper.
Yes, it can be a long process. If I were to total the time for all the things in the truck image, I'd say it took about 3 weeks, or so, of working on and off.

He did not sell much because people wanted it for too little or free. He gave paintings to family and friends but not to strangers. He worked on paintings for months. Depending on the size. He made copies of art he found and photographs he took.
I have done paintings. You draw them meticulously and than paint. It is a long tedious process. You put your time, effort and heart in.

Sorry, I didn't see these comments until just now.
Yeah.... I love creating things too. It feels like you've accomplished something. It's relaxing and satisfying.
I'm afraid that if I had done it for a living, that would ruin it for me, what with deadlines and having to stick to the subject matter determine by an employer.
Yes, art supplies are expensive and they don't go very far.
I'm sure I've spent hundreds on oils and acrylics.
I've never really tried paper mache. I'd probably like that too.
I didn't know your Dad sold his work. He must have been pretty good.

You could make some extra money selling your work. My dad only sold his oil paintings for a respectable price. Morons tried to low ball him. Good oil paint, Masonite and canvas are expensive. His ability and time were priceless.
Your work is great. Emerald green is my favorite color. I grew up with an unusual shade of red here. Green looks great on me.

Wow. We would have so much fun if we could work together.
I did paper mache in a puppetry class. We had a finished basement but my mother complained it was too messy despite I use only her downstairs kitchen. I like creating things.

It's 3D modeling. I sculpt all he components and paint their surfaces via a process called texturing. The truck took a long time. It alone has about 150 separate parts that all had to fit together.
