So I think I finally found something I can do on DeviantArt without an overly complicated posting process. And it's still something I love. And that thing is...

*Drum roll*

*Cymbal crash*

Drawing semi trucks! I've already drawn what mostly resembles my truck in ATS, and I'm working on a 1987 Marmon 57L with a 60 inch flattop sleeper. Oh boy. I need some colored pencils.
The FireStar Special
This is my first actual attempt at drawing a truck not for a paint design, but for looks. This is in essence how my personal rig in ATS looks, minus the 2000R Reefer. I still need a skin for that. Burt anyway, this was a seat-of-the-pants 20-30 minute sketch. That's really all I have to say though, enjoy.

(Yes, I know the cab is off.)
Freightliner/Utility FireStar Freight Combo
Harven's Freightliner FLB customized paired with Smarty's Utility 2000R, both equipped with a custom paint job that I had made by Lucasi on the workshop.

Truck - Freightliner FLB edit by Harven
Skin - Custom Made FireStar Freight skin by Lucasi
Engine - Catapiller 3406E, 500hp
Transmission - Eaton 13 speed

Trailer - Utility 2000R 40 foot with Thermo-King Refrigerating Unit

That's all I can remember for now, I'll get the other details when 'm on my PC next.
I really REALLY want to start posting stories, but I have two roadblocks (har-har) so to speak.

1) I keep skipping from story to story, which is a big problem of mine.

2) I can't seem to figure out how to post stories as actual art submissions and not friggin' journals. Do I need to download the story and then submit it? How the heck do I do this?

Also, the Pete 379EXHD in my pictures is having a custom skin done on it, but that's for another day (wink).
I was sitting at my computer the other day, drooling at trucks and hauling virtual freight, when something occurred to me. What if I didn't make it? What if, no matter how hard I tried, I would never catch it? Then my brain offered up some words of advice.

Dreams are like rainbows, you can chase them all you want, but you will never catch it. You have to build it yourself..

That is all.


Firestarthecat1's Profile Picture

Just a guy who loves semi trucks, particularly old ones. I like to write stories and not finish them (for some reason). I also like to share pictures of my trucks in American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2. I intend to get my Class A CDL in the fall and hauling grain for my uncle. y favorite truck brand is Peterbilt, my favorite engine brand Caterpillar, and my favorite transmission brand is Eaton. I can get a little philosophical at times, and I make a damn good friend when you get to know me.

Opinions aren't facts and facts aren't opinions.
Just because you don't like a song, or a book, or a movie or show, or vehicle that someone likes doesn't make it stupid. That just makes you stupid.
I don't care what you believe in, a person is a person and they should be judged by their character, not the way they look or what they believe in.

Art belongs to CaboverTruckLover, check him out!

Thank you so much for the watch, I really appreciate it. :) (Smile)

If you don't mind, I would like some feedback. Which one of my stories did you read?? Why did you read it?? What did you like about it?? What did you dislike about it??? Was there anything confusing in my story that you want me to clear up???
