Ive recently been drawing some tractors so I thought i'd share them. So far, i have done a JD 110, a JD 3720, a JD 2040, a Bota BX25, and a Bota L3400. :thumbup1gif:

You're getting better Jake with the fourth drawing you posted being the best proportion and perspective wise.

Very nice!

You should consider putting the brand, model and year on the drawing. And of course, like any good artist, sign it!

Thanks guys!:thumbup1gif: i have been signing each one in the right bottom corner. Brand and model number is a good idea, I probably should date them too.

Just for grins, here's what the covers on the manuals for my B21 from 1997 look like. Keep developing that skill Jake. Mechanical illustrations are needed for lots of things, that could be a source of income someday.

Sorry 'bout the view there Brian... But back in 1997 Deere didn't have anything even close to a B21. That frame mounted backhoe and "it's bolted on and it's not coming off" loader are great. Focus on the positive- the next tractor I got was the 4520.

I do like the small size of the B21, the OS with it's "easy to jump out, get something, and jump back on" ability. But it's not a hot day work machine. I feel like I've got the perfect mix- good garden tractor, 2000 series class, and 4000 series class. It's almost like when you have a "fleet" you need to be sure you always skip a series.

Think green happy thoughts....:laugh:

Yep; but most illustrations are done on the computer these days, so one has to learn how to draw on the PC to make a buck doing that kind of work.

However; learning proportion, perspective, lighting, and shadowing by hand is a good skill to have in preparation for the computer aided illustrating.

Nice save Pete. I think there were some harsh membership thoughts going on for a moment. Are you on probation?:mocking:
