    Thanks for the kind feedback, folks. Feels good to have time to do my own artwork again... some of these were left half-baked for months, so I'm glad to have finally finished them.

    @ Domi: The website that hosts my gallery handles all printing and shipping. I believe that they ship internationally, but you can email them to be certain.

    I just added another piece (sorry, not a delorean; a Ford GT). I'm working on a companion piece to the one Domi referenced (http://society6.com/geoffombao/Delor...ter-Blue_Print) which will show the rear of the car. After that, I might do a Dino, a Miura, or another Mini. Gotta mix it up a bit... they can't be all Deloreans.

    Great artwork! Very Pop! Well done!

    If I had a bigger garage wall, definately worthy for my DMC-Cave.

    All right, thank you for your answer.
    I will ask them, just to be sure.

    Do you use a photograph as a base, and then highlight lines and such?

    I've done just lineart work of a Levin photograph once. I should try that with a DeLorean... Those wheels will be the end of me... But this was my end result when it came to the Levin:



    Done in 2007... Can't believe it has been that long since I've done something like that. Anyone want their favorite DeLorean picture done in lines? Shoot me a PM with a picture, and the first one will get it (it'll take me some time, but eh, free is free ne?)

    Sorry for the highjack... I am just a sucker for drawings like that. I never got into coloring my lines.

    Neat drawing! Yes, what you described is, in principal, part of what I do. But it's a multi-step process:

    I work from photos of cars that I shoot myself so I can get the dramatic angles that I like. Using "old school" paper & pencil, I create rough sketches of the piece's composition/setting/etc.

    Next, I "build" the car in Adobe Illustrator. I take a lot of creative license to make colors, lines, surfaces, angles, etc. more dramatic/evocative. Using the rough sketches, I build the environment in which the car will reside. I then overlay the car onto the background and do further work to both. The resulting Illustrator file can be pretty complex... often ~30 layers, and >20 MB (pretty big for a vector graphics file).

    Finally, I import the images into PhotoShop for more work that is not easily done in a vector program.

    It's a lot of work tweaking every aspect of a piece, but really enjoyable. Often, I'll make a dozen or more variations of the same piece before selecting a "final". EX: The attached images are variations that I dropped in favor pieces that are in my gallery now.

    Well, I just added a couple of more pieces to the collection... a rear view D to complement "Delorean - Retro Poster; Blue", and mew Mini).

    http://society6.com/geoffombao/

    Looking at my gallery, it's pretty skewed towards D's and Mini's. Clearly, I'm pretty passionate about these cars, but I think I'm gonna move on to another make for a bit... these cars are really fun subject matter, but I don't want to burn out on them.

    Again, thanks for your interest and feedback. Now... time to stop being an artist, and get some much needed sleep!

    Howdy... Just added a few more to the collection. A Ferrari Dino, and two more Deloreans (which I did in a more minimalistic style this time).

    A also added a bit of info in the "About" area, if anyone is interested.

    Enjoy (I hope)! Again, feedback, questions, and comments are always welcome.

    All that stuff looks really good. I can do that stuff, too, although ever since my computer was upgraded, I've been doing my projects in my old Fireworks now and I don't have my CS2 installed again yet. Fireworks works almost the same though, so I am happy for that.

    I am gonna have to get back to my DeLorean "Cars" projects when I can. Everything else has had my mind boggling, mostly rl stuff and making videos.
