    You have a talent.
    Am I correct that this is done on a computer? I’m a total computer idiot, so this stuff is like magic to me.

    I have started using this. It is an Apple Pencil, I think. It is an Apple thing, and works on a pad. I just draw on it like it’s paper, except there’s no feel.
    All my art friends keep giving me tips and tricks, but extra features simply confuse me and make me lose things or screw up.
    One “layer” and all hand drawn and colored with the “colored pencils” in the sketch program.

    Great fun, really.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Just love the way that they streamlined the back of that car.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    These doodles on the pad have an interesting texture to them. Is the intended finished product a digital image forever or is this something that you print to paper? I think the wrong paper would change the texture within the image, but I have no way of knowing. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, great. Now everyone can see how BAD it is. I just LOVE this car. My second favorite Peugeot, after the Quadrillette. The boat tail Quadrillete.

    You know, I never even thought about it. I only accidentally discovered the colored pencil deal on the sketchbook app. There are paintbrushes, too, and they are as mesmerizing to use.

    Originally, the idea was just to avoid my having to buy more sharpies, but allow me to continue making the goofy Doodles, which pretty much only exist in the Instagram, anyway.

    But, a while ago, I got out some of the kids colored pencils and sketched some color doodles on vellum I found stashed away, and it was fun.
    I had truly forgotten the joy drawing gives me.

    So, when I got the pad and started playing with the tools, and found the “colored pencils”, and discovered they are almost exactly like REAL pencils, I was hooked.

    Now, though, I have to go do some printing experiments.

    Peace,
    Robert

    P.S. My kids want me to enter one in the fair. Flashbacks to high school...

    Oh, a board-track racer is the one vehicle I truly lust for. I’d LOVE to ride one. Racing on the track was one of my favorite things, and I can only imagine it on such a bike...

    Its nice to see Peugeots getting some appreciation.They do have a good claim to fame in the USA https://www.supercars.net/blog/1912-...76-grand-prix/ . Plenty of others for Rob to apply his efforts to as well,but theres no need to draw the electric drills they make.
