Oh well - It's old artwork but unpublished plus I want to have my Shelby posts keep up with my Cougar posts.

This is something I did while in high school - all kinds of funky things going on (I didn't even know how to use oval templates then so the tires and wheels are farged up). Plus I put LeMans stripes on it!

But -

It proves I've been a long time Shelby fan even though Mercury Cougars are my #1.

VERY cool!

Seriously Phillip, that is amazing. I can't even draw a straight line with a ruler.

Is that 1978 in the sig?

Thanks Chris and Shelby_r_b  -  it's always nice to get a compliment now-and-then  8)

Yep, did that in 1978 when I was 17 using model paint rattle cans with acrylic washes.

It has that pre-computer, warm, 1970s "analog" feel to it - but it is amateurish. I was trying hard to figure things out.

In Fact, if you could tweak that in Photoshop to make it Nightmist, I would want to frame one for my shop wall.

Again, thanks for the compliments - especially on something I did in my youth.

Even though it has it's problems (which stick out to me like a sore thumb), I think my passion for the design of the '67 Shelby managed to come through.

2112, your comment actually got me to thinking that Photoshop would allow me to address the issues with the tires and wheels (along with trying different colors).

When I get some time I'll do that and then maybe make some posters available in the "for sale' section of the forum.

Wow!!  Awesome Phillip 8)

I'm an amateur artiste myself.  The 67 artwork is awesome.  And I would definitely be on board for a copy ;)
