Your sketches are great. I wish I could do that. I mess around with pencil but have nowhere near your ability.

Maybe there is a market for combining car drawing and portraits. I mean, it seems to me that someone who had restored an old muscle car might well want a portrait of himself (or herself) WITH the car.

i believe drawing things like cars are quiet easy to do if you have the patience. its more of a technical thing rather than an artistic one, personally i have no artistic or creative ability. all i can do is copy what i see and my eyes differentiate well between levels of shade.

if you ever wanna try drawing cars kansas girl, try drawing a grid made up of 1cm squares on a print out of a car, do the same on your blank paper and then just copy each block onto you blank page, once you hav a decent outline and have the proportions looking good rub out the gridmarks and set to work on the shading by building layers of lead and using an earbud or scruntched up piece of paper to smooth out the lead in between layers. and dont be scared to lay the lead down thick where its needed.

best bet is to go with a pic of a car in a studio setting, tha way you dont have to worry aout all the reflections, and once you have you grid and outline sorted its always good to work the shading from a picture that has been converted to black and white.

sure thing so long as you dont mind using the watermarked version, i found someone using my art and claiming credit for it so i reported them and figured i better watermark them to stop anyone else claiming them as there own and trying to sell prints of them.

now i gots to go on the hunt for any more of my sketches that aint watermarked.

and thanks for all the nice comments, its the positive comments that keep me drawing.

not a bad start, if you could see my first 100 or so car sketches you would get an idea of how much practice it takes to make a car look something even remotly close to realistic.

i always enjoyed drawing from a young age but i believe anyone that wants to draw can and with enough practice you will be able to draw just about anything.

your choice for the piece you posted is perfect, by only drawing small sections of things you can better train your brain to notice every line and shape and shadow instead of drawing what your brain wants you to draw. when you sit down to sketch any car your brain already has an idea of what a car should look like, ignore what you think a car should look like and instead draw what it really looks like by breaking the image down into its most basic form.

and for car sketches blending and smoothing is a must, for tight areas scruntch up a scrap of paper and squeeze one end to a sharp point, for larger areas try using cotton swabs but always start gently.

all i use is pencil and cotton buds for blending, i start with a mechanical pencil. after im done i go back over the areas that need to be real dark with a 6b pencil. a kneedable putty eraser usually comes in handy too.

i guess if you wanna know all instruments then i also use a ruler to draw out a reference grid before i start the outline.
