great idea I love this type of thread, i’ve seen some go on for years.
sorry if newbie work here, def not showcase worthy but i’d like to share anyways,
new to mypaint one of my first few studies.
used lineart of a car found in a search engine as base
I quite like the plus layer effect or dodge layer, for the lights + highlights… really adds glowyness.
initial plan for some jeep paintings I’m making for my dad who loves them:
converted art into lineart with inkscape with trace bitmap feature.
both these I used separate scene imagines that I thought suited the jeep.
Time not sure, will try to keep track next time maybe do a semi speed paint. id say about 2.3 hour on the older jeep and 1 to 2 hours or so on the older car (a lot of time spent experimenting. )
