the car

after drawing only animals, i decided to draw a car. this was my first time drawing one and using my proportional divider to draw it to scale. it took about 3 hours to do the sketch and about 10.5 hours from start to finish. most of it was done the same day!!

i can say that i am very happy with this one because i can stop looking at it if anyone has ever seen "Roadkill" on youtube, you will recognize this a the dodge 'superbee'

more to come too... right now i am drawing a truck. despite the fact that is is a lot of intricate work, i actually really enjoy doing this. once the sketch is done, you just color it in [i can see a lot of you rolling your eyes and sarcastically saying "yeah, just color it in...yep hmm-mmm]

3 hours of work here.. who would have thunk it?

i wish i hade more colors to work with!

ready to drive off the page...

I'm impressed! I was impressed by the 3rd pic with you getting the tire rims shining and the 4th pics with the shadowing under the car. Pat yourself on the back there girl you have really come a long way!

Good luck with the truck.

I hope you don't take this the wrong way at all, but I think your art is improving rapidly and really well too I would be very proud to call that mine!
