This is an illustration I made a few years ago, in September 2009 according to the digital scan data (which you can see below). It depicts a scene from Chapter 34
of The Adventures of Fox Tayle
, by wannabemustangjockey
. It's a pretty good story, and I reccomend it.
At the time I made this, I considered it some of my finest artwork. I wonder now if, were I to push myself, could I make art like this again?
The Subaru and the helicopter (line art) were traced from reference photographs (against a window using sunlight!), but everything else was done manually. I made sure to get all the details right: What highway they're on, what Fox was wearing, the Ohio license plate, and the weather. And of course, the make and model of the car and helicopter. (I made up the license plate number, though.) In this scene, Fox is on a Pennsylvania highway (Pennsylvania Route 283
) being chased by, to make it simple, the U.S. government. But it's a little more complicated than that, and too long for me to explain here. I hope you like the image!
