Chopped

Whew! Been a bit too long since my last post. Well, I was working on this one for a few days, and then I couldn't post it due to it being a surprise present for my Father in-law. That's him there, on the chopper. I'm really happy with how it came out, and surprisingly it was a blast to draw and color, even though the thought of starting it scared me for quite a few days before I did. I gave it to him this weekend, and he loved it.

Make sure you click on it for a bit higher res version.

I love the movement in this. I'm also digging his arms. I like how big they are compared to the rest of his body.

psshhh you call that "a bit long between posts"? Try 3 weeks. I'm the queen of procrastination :p

Nice work!! I love how squashed the bike is, and how high the handlebars are--it has a nice flow to it.

great play of shapes in this one.
The colors, the chrome effect and flames are all very nice.

Sweet.

My wife will dig it.
She has a 2003 Sportster.

Keep it up and don't be ashamed of your down time - I think your current post schedule is plenty good!

I'm so thrilled that you had fun doing this one, and you may have noticed, my dad was diggin' it. Amazing job John, Love ya.

Your father in-law looks to be a huge man. Must have made asking for his daughter's hand in marriage a bit of a scary task.

Nice art... as always.
