    A little while ago LesofPrimus posted some drawings that he did and I'm sure there are others out there who draw. So lets see them! To get the ball rolling, I'm putting up some that I did a few years (25!!) back. Mostly for the bands I was in and a couple odd-ball stuff. No aircraft as I'm not that good. No VanGogh here!

    Now where's yours?!

    They're good Chris!

    This is going back to 1976! Unfortunately I was more of a copier. I got a Rotring pen for Christmas that year and for a high school project copied a Jaguar cutaway from a magazine, centimetre by meticulous centimetre. Circles and ovals were a bitch...

    That is awesome! I've always wanted to get into detail like that. I tried paint and color but always felt more comfortable with B/W.

    Real good job there!

    Here is one of my drawings. I don't draw as often as I should. I seem to go through spurts where I draw a bunch, then not at all for a while.

    Spot one mistake Brother.... VF-96 was The Fighting Falcons, which you have drawn there as "Showtime 100". But, it has the tail of VF-111 The Sundowners...

    Awesome work nonetheless Dan!

    THX Muller. I did that on June 27(?), 1987 - 20 years from the release date of "Sgt. Peppers.."

    Theres alot of discrepancies in my drawings fellas... U could have a field day pointing them out... I did these in my younger days when I had hardly any resource material and only a glimmer of information stored in the ol grey matter that I have now....

    And yes, the rivets were a pain....

    Nice artwork, guys! ;)
    And Graeme? That's highly impressive work, man! Respect! ;)

    Here's mine as I've put it up on my hobby website.
    The major part of my drawings were made at an art school that I went to once upon a time...so no planes, but lots of ther stuff.
    I'd like to start drawing again as I've always enjoyed it very much, but alas...there's only 24 hours a day, and photography and motorcycles - and life in general - has a tendency to steal away my good intentions of being creative. *sigh* :)
    Anyway, here's my little hobby page - no pop-ups, no nasty stuff whatsoever, unless you happen to dislike my drawings! :lol:
    The site is in danish, but I hope you manage to navigate your way around anyway:
