muscle car sketches

hi all not sure if this is in the right place but here goes. iv been drawing portraits for a couple years but just recently gave cars a go so far i have only done a few muscle cars but wanted some feedback from the people who know how they should really look. its all good and well people who draw saying thats great but they know art not cars so i would like any critisism that anyone has to offer, and basically i wanna find out if its worth me moving away from portraits in the direction of car drawing or should i stick with the portraits.








the last one was just for fun, 69 charger with lowered roof, rounded rear end, flarred arches and tribal graphics, i know the rear wheel would never really fit its arch, i screwed up and by the time i realise it was too late to change it.

well thanks in advance
lemme know what you think.

portraits ?

Well, I haven't seen your portraits. I really like the sketches. I use to own a 72 Chevelle. Nice job on that and all of your work is awesome.

Thought they were pretty cool. Dont much care for what you did with the charger. It seems the roofline is a little off and im not feeling the flares or tribal stuff but all the work is good quality.

I did one for a final in an art class a while back of a 427 AC/Shelby cobra I wish I had a scanner big enough for it so I could post it.

I hate drawing cars though, it takes me a while to get all the lines right in anything but a straight on or profile vew. I cant get foreshortening down on a car.

not a bad idea but right now im backlogged, got 3 portraits commisions. then i got 3 paintings to do on an old ass mill saw (dont know how im gonna pull that off cos the only time i ever pick up a paintbrush is for decorating my house) then a couple car commisions. then hopefully ill get around to some requests so long as more paid comissions dont pop up.

commiisions are great for the cash but i find i cant draw as well when im under the pressure of a deadline and i get nervouse that the customer wont be happy with the finnished article
