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!

Cool! When I was in high school, Gleaner's were the thing to have. A family I went to school with used the N6 and N9 models. Those were huge!

Interesting topic, you seem to choose a variety if different ones all the time. And I really like it.
Do you use any special erasers? Like, electric, etc. It doesn't seem easy to make those white details/lines

Thank you. Yes, I kind of stray all over the place when it comes to drawings. I use a click eraser and sharpen the tip to a bevel using an xacto knife.

Thank you! I never used one myself. I worked for plenty of farmers while growing up but never ran a combine. I was more on the "dumb end" of things....hauling hay and that sort of thing (before the large round bales were popular).
