Hi all, I'm big into doing illustrations of cars, mostly Porsches, but I've always loved the designs of a lot of classic electric guitars. For one of my projects recently I decided I wanted to create one of a Gibson Les paul.
Here's a somewhat medium sized picture of it. Of course natively there is no "resolution" because it's a vector image and can be blown up to any size I wish.
My wife plays bass, but unfortunately I don't play anything. Well, I can eek my way through a couple songs on bass but really, pretty much no skill. Anyway, we have her bass hung up in our livingroom. After I created this illustration I was going to print it life-size and hang it up too, but then I started thinking about how much less cool a picture would be compared to the real thing.
So I went out and bought this beat up Epiphone Les Paul Special
Plan is to rebuild it a bit (broken nut, strings are gross, maybe new pickups, etc) and paint it in a similar fashion to the illustration I made. I'm also wanting to start learning guitar. Not wanting to be a rock star or anything, but it would be fun to just jam out with my wife.
And for anyone interested, here are a couple of my car illustrations.
