Hello all,
I have done a few original portraits in charcoal on 19x25" paper, one of Enzo himself (photo hopefully attached), and a few others of past Works drivers (Niki Lauda, Gilles Villeneuve). I was wondering if there would be any interest in a limited run (~100) of poster size high-quality prints of the portraits... Of course, the originals are always for sale at the right price!
I loosely based the Enzo portrait on a small photograph of the man operating a motor dyno, and I used compressed charcoal sticks, my fingers, and a thin eraser for detail.
I have the time to do these portraits this summer, but in September I will be returning to my 4th term Transportation Design classes at Art Center in Pasadena.
Thanks and any input would be greatly appreciated! -Nicholas Green

Nicholas,
Very well done and welcome to the forum! :wasup: I think there might be some interest prints. What price are we talking about and what size? Have you tried any of the models, I know cars a hard to draw but if you have some post those as well please.

Thanks for the compliment! The posters aren't printed up yet, (I want to make sure there's a market for them!), but they will be 17x22". Price-wise, I was thinking $35.
As far as drawing cars go, I do that all year at school and was taking a break by drawing things of a more organic nature... however, if there is a demand for a specific model, I could give it a shot and see what you guys think!

Nicholas,

Nice work! I'm impressed and would be interested. Are you open to car portraits. I'd love for you to do a print of my 308. I have a couple of photos that Andrew posted for me in the gallery. Let me know! Thank you!

Forza,

Dane
