An Allis Chalmers L2 Gleaner at harvest time. Drew this one for my wife. She was a farmer's daughter.

My Grandpa used to have this Combine, then went up to an R42

These were the big thing when I was in high school back in the day. Well, the N series was used a lot for custom combining but they were a whole lot larger.

believe it or not, my Grandpa used to have an N2 before the L2! I rode in the N2 when i was about 3 years old, and i loved riding in the combine each and every time.

Wow! That wheat must have taken forever.
All that time you spent on the Gleaner, and i notice the wheat!
Love those tiny value changes and those sweet gradients of yours!
Another beautiful piece of work! :clap:

Yep, it took awhile. I'm drawing from experience on this more than anything. Those hot days of harvest where all you could say was a big chaff cloud from the cutting process. Thanks!
