Yikes! I can tell this one's going to take lots of time....
I have no idea who these people are...but I do know they're from around the time of the civil war in the 1860's.
It's kind of funny how people posed for a photo back then....LOL

How funny.. I just took some photos of some old daguerreotypes and ambrotypes my mother in law got from her grandmother,all the pics are from that era and look like this.. I'll be posting them on DA shortly and I'll put a link...very cool

great start, elly. It's going to be a great draw, take your time..we can
elly (Mar 11, 2009)
Oh good! I was hoping someone would still be here!! ;p
I'd love to see those photos, dave! post away!! Maybe one of these days I'll open an account at DA...I just recently signed up on facebook and it took a good chunk of time to upload all my draws and cake photos I likely won't do the DA thing for a while yet...anyway, thanks y'all!

I'm with everybody else on this. First thing I thought was, that is going to be wonderful.

To be more honest I really thought "Wauw, fantastisch, dat wordt een hele mooie!" But I figured you guys couldn't understand that.

Those old photo's are wonderful, my greatgrandmother on a trip. I'm guessing in the 20's:
elly (Mar 11, 2009)'t make anything out of that last part, enjoydotcom, but it was funny! n___n

This is nice.....I like the way the bottom part of the pic makes them look gives them a "ghostly" look. I hope you leave it looking transparent. :)
elly (Mar 11, 2009)
Wow dave! Those are fantastic!! I want to take some time and really look at those in detail! I love the first one of the page of the two little funny are those clothes! Love the little bloomers =D And those frames they're all in are to die for!! Dont see things like that anymore! Thanks for sharing!!
firecracker, I thought about the transparent thing...maybe...maybe not, we'll see where my mood is when I get to that'll be a surprise I guess...hee
thanks, y'all!

elly (Mar 12, 2009)

Very nice Elly!! love it! We don't see many 'ole drawings's a shame, they're so likeable!!

very very very nice. I especially like the carpet...great job. I have many old photos like this from my parents. I should try to do one someday. Dave, good idea to catalog them at flicker or somewhere similar! I think maybe I should do that one of these days.
DMV (Mar 12, 2009)
I knew this would come out awesome...I did not know it was carpet until I read the comments I thought it was plywood because of the grain pattern :)
elly (Mar 12, 2009)
Yep, it's carpet...old, flat, faded, worn down carpet....wonder what color it was?
gel_o (Mar 14, 2009)
Wow, this is quite different elly and very nice!
elly (Mar 14, 2009)
Thanks! Gotta change it up a bit now and again....
