    Artwork

    One of my hobbies is painting/ drawing. Sure, I could paint bowls of fruit and pretty landscapes, but I prefer my subject to be something that inspires me. I like motorcycles. I found this old pencil drawing while helping my Dad move in with his new wife. (She apparently has a different idea of art, because he gave it back to me) I thought you guys would enjoy. Here it is:

    Really nice work there Flame! Pencils are a great tool for getting the various shadows and shading.

    I dabble with the pencils myself... as some might tell you... but I found a local artist who is fantastic with a brush and palette. She did this...

    She came over at my request and took a bunch of pics of MK... and when she went back to her studio... found that one photo had the reflection of my house in the chrome (I keep MK THAT shiny, bros). So that's why she focused in on that one aspect, instead of the whole bike.

    I've seen the full sized painting she finished... it's gorgeous. If I had the 1,800 she wants for it, it'd be hanging in my studio. As it is... I got a print of MK's "moment in the sun".

    Dark knight, that is talent. I wonder if I could get that much for one of mine?

    ... or so the voices tell me....

    I hate people like you, I have a buddy that can draw really well too. I really don't hate you, I envy you. I just wish I had that talent. Keep up the good work.

    Flame, ya never know until you put it out there. I know I've sold a lot of my own artwork (though never for that price). But if you don't give it a shot, ya never know. It reminds me of what Jesse James (the bike builder) said... "If you don't charge for your talents and skills, then you are degrading yourself.... if people like what you do, and want you to do that for them (creating something, drawing something)... then they'll be willing to pay you for it." I've stuck to that motto since!
