Ryan Sardachuk
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Hello there I am Ryan Sardachuk... probably the biggest person who is stuck in time warp, that you'll ever meet. I am a full hearted retro lover, and even a bit of a redneck, and that has influenced me greatly in what i draw, and how i draw it. I draw mostly vintage american cars, from the days when the automakers made beautiful cars for every buyer segment. You know... the days when even the average american could afford to drive a car that could turn heads (The 57 Chevy is a fine example of this). Today ordinary people can only afford the bland lumps that we sadly call quality vehicles. you know... the ones that have no thought put into their design, and have less torque from the engine than they do in the lugnuts, and horsepower outputs similar to that of a sewing machine. What really surprises me about some of these new cars, is that you don't have to mix the oil and the gas like you do with your lawnmower haha. anyway i'm done ranting... this is my drawing style: I draw alot of existing cars, as well as some of my own... i prefer to use art pencils, watercolor paints, and watercolor pencil crayons. and sometimes oil pastels, but those can be a real pain... with that said, that pretty much summarizes my style, and presentation

Current Residence: calgary alberta canada
Favourite genre of music: classic rock and country any day of the week
Favourite Artists: Ralph Goings, Chip Foose, Thomas Kinkade, Ian Guy, Dave Snyder.
Favourite style of art: Car Art, retro, photorealism
Operating System: i can use both.
Personal Quote: I Use Many Quotes... Some are mine some are not, But Heres A Few Good Ones: "If your gun rack has a gun rack, you might be a redneck", "Don't Piss On My Leg And Tell Me It's Raining", "If everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane!", "Don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya", "If rabbits feet are so lucky, what happened to the rabbit?", "If you find a car when you mow your lawn, you might be a redneck"

I've been thinking lately about my artwork. I've enjoyed making this Life Story Of A Chevy Chevelle Series so far, and I feel that It'd be cool If I started another life story up for a different car with an entirely different story too. Feedback? 

36 deviants said Yes, I'd Like to see another Automotive Life Story after this one.
10 deviants said Yes I'd like to see another automotive life story, but please make some different unrelated paintings along side it.
1 deviant said No, One is enough for now. Another one would be a bit redundant.
1 deviant said No... It was bad enough of an idea to do one life story of a car.

Just thought I'd tell you I found a reliable source of 1/24 Chevelle snap kits, first one I'm gonna do is the Chevelle after the hurricane, complete with guns, a blanket, a gas can, a hubcap "ashtray" and a toolbox inside like I imagined Kurt having inside as "furniture". Stay tuned... I'm not starting my Life Story fanart cars until after the series ends and the excitement over the Chevelle's ultimate fate (whatever it is, I have a good idea of it but am not telling a soul) starts to fade

sounds great.  I look forward to seeing them

Thanks! Will be a fun project... as for the Chevelle contents, I have one sawed-off shotgun and a rifle from an old MPC Gangbusters prewar Lincoln kit, a few clear plastic bottles that could be water that Kurt got from the Red Cross after the hurricane or could be alcohol, can use a piece of napkin as a blanket, a couple small toolboxes and a 1/24 gas can. May also use some small twigs and matchsticks on the dash and package tray since Kurt could be seen roasting sausages or wieners over a fire and probably needed to protect his firewood. The "Looters Will Be Shot" door sign will be done in silver Marvy calligraphy marker or white gel pen.
Thanks for the +fave!

Love Your Work, Man. Your The Best. :)

Found the perfect 1/64 Chevelle to build as the Life Story car as Austin had it, but minus the hood so I can show off his careless "craftsmanship". Still planning on building all three of the Kurt Padrewski versions (Silver Palms, Looters Will Be Shot and Denver), as it was when Lloyd traded it in, the El Camino as it was when Kurt received it and after the hurricane but before Kurt cannibalized it for Chevelle parts, and as it was when fished out of Grand Lake, not gonna bother with brand new/Derrick versions and any possible others until the saga is finished, and the Carl Ericson versions only after I get the hang of 1/64 patina. Also thinking about doing a "fanart" car of what I could see Kurt driving in 2014 (trashed Fox-body or IROC-Z)

1/64 is a nice challenge for me...
