Dodge Dart. Dynamic. traditional. by Lou-in-Canada Dodge Dart. Dynamic. traditional. by Lou-in-Canada
Traditional. Staedtler pigment liners, Pro-, Touch- and Prismacolor - markers on artboard 16x20.
Now this was a lot of squares. My hand, fingers, wrist are sore now. Every square required a different hand position to colour them. I'll need a couple o days before I could do another :rofl: Anyway, here we go:

circular motion for the cycles of the engine, the steeringwheel and the speed
colour gradients for the smooth transitions and handling of the vehicle
grey lines for the hubcap rims, paved streets and highways
the red for the taillights as the Dodge Dart dissappears around the curve in the road ahead
and of course, the colour of the car itself
Dodge Dart? Dynamic! :D

ETA added background :D

Wow super travail enfin travaux...quel boulot mais le resultat est magnifique....Pfffff c'est à travers ce visuel que je découvre que je peux et donc mieux te remercier en français...C'est cool...Merci beaucoup pour ces visites et favoris...important et moteur pour moi (dans la voiture ça tombe bien :-)
De mon coté je me suis bien amusé aussi et pourtant quand j'ai découvert les 4 seules photos et le logo...pffff...mais je ne suis pas sorti de ces photos, j'ai juste transformé mon studio "Le Kabanon" en garage et mis en pièces détachées les images. :-)
Encore bravo et merci d'offrir à mes yeux de jolies choses....en jolie chose, mon oeil aimerait tellement photographier ton pays...BIG UP

oui, bien que je suis hollandaise, et normalement parles anglais, je me debrouilles assez bien en francais, apres avoir vecu une dizaine d'annees en France. J'adore la meditaranee, ca me manque, la plage :lmao: Merci pour ta gentillesse. Ca m'a fit plaisir de travailler sur cet oeuvre, dommage quant c'etait termine. J'ai aussi aime le contest en general. Cela m'a donne beaucoup d'inspiration. Maintenant je me trouves un peu videe :lmao: Aucune idee pour un nouveau travail! :lmao: jette un coup d'oeil dans ma signature dessous, j'ait collectionne tous les travaux dans mes favorites. Pour les travaus digitales, j'ait just mis les oeuvres qui avaient a peu pres 8 commentaires ou plus. :)

Je comprend et connais ce sentiment d'être vidé...c'est horrible mais une amie m'a dit il n'y pas longtemps "c'est peu être necessaire parfois de s'ennuyer"...bon OK mais pas cool quand même...alors c'est pourquoi j'ecris sur mon profil "Varied" ;-) du digital à la photo. En plus la photo permet et oblige à sortir la tête du Studio re ;-) et puis simplement d'autres choses...mais quand la vibe est là (moi aussi Dodge m'a mit le feu) je suis à fond dedans...Ohhh la Hollande...cool...j'aime beaucoup ces cafés :-<....En tous cas, ce contest m'aura permi de découvrir ton Art (super) et un peu toi...A bientot

:giggle: Just il ya 1 mois, ils ont change les lois concernant ces cafes. Uniquement des personnes residant aux Pays Bas y sont permis maintenant. Il faut s'incrire meme. Beaucoup de personnes refusent car ils ne savent pas dans le future pour quoi ces listes seront utilises. Pas un bon changement, really :D

This will clearly be on top 2! And defo a winner in Traditional.

I just looked into it deeply for a sec. Crap! My ADD is acting up again! I can never see myself sitting through this. Looking at those perfect lil squares! If someone had asked me to do it, I probably would've ripped the freaking paper into pieces and break all the color markers within first few sec. And the background! Oh shivers.

Job well done!

and I forgot. yes, the woodburning piece haha. It is my own favorite for the win. The one next to it, the tin piece, doesn't equal the number of faves, but I think it's a very unique piece too, so I put it second. Number 3 same thing, very unique, so I put it on top so it could get noticed more :D It's nice to find out new art on DA. I had never seen those 3 types before :)

haha, no I won't. I arranged the gallery so the top comment getters are at the top. Comments dont' always equal the numbers of faves, but it's probably close in popularity. Allthough that doesn't have to influence the judges, they're supposed to judge according to their 3 categories. Anyways, mine are way down from winning :rofl: I don't mind it though, I had a blast participating. :dance: In a way it'll be a shame when it's over, won't it? :lmao:

hahaha HawkEyes, that made me laugh so hard. Yes, it was a long, tedious one. But I really really enjoyed it! Although after a while your eyes do goa bit funny with all those shades of red. This one I had to stay extremely focus to make sure I didn't mess it up. I'm very happy with the result. So glad you like it too! I don't know that it would be a winner, but I'm hoping very much of course it would at least become a semi-finalist :w00t:
