Unused or failed designs ready for abuse!

  1. Thanks, Jazu.

    Regarding that last paragraph, I couldn't agree more! After drawing a car based off of a picture in front of you and then scanning yours in and comparing the two, it's incredible how much my drawings can be off. I think I've learned my lesson now and whenever I am about to pen/finalise something, I'll scan it in first.
  2. Some more.
  3. Jazu, lookin' good. I'd like to learn how to color/shade cars.. it's one thing I just can't do! Any method you use to determine lighting/reflections/shading? I've never been able to get this right.

    One tip I have (from one artist to another) is to use bolder lines. The red Ferrari looks great, however I can sense the hesitancy. Go nuts with your strokes, it firms things up and makes the design more appealing.

    Nice work.
  4. Okay some more of this stuff. Few photoshop works also.

    I´m seemingly getting a lot of critique about my lines... It is true that they are hesitant usually... And I dont know why. I´m very sensitive drawer (Very light touch) so i need to use a strong pen to get good lines, and lots of space for my hand movements. Most usually I dont have neither of those, though. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Practice will help in this, I know I´m having seasons when I´m draving firmer than usual and sometimes the complete opposite.

    Anyways, for what comes to how I make a basic lighting to a car... well, usually you hear people to talk about 1 - 2 - 3 box lighting... but that is just the basics. When making stuff with markers, I always start with light colors, and use 2 - 4 different tones to make the lighting. Cold tones on top to mimic the sky-blue and warm tones to the bottom parts to simulate earth reflection. Otherwise, what comes to reflections... well one learns a lot by watching either cars or simpler objects with reflective surface.

    The reflections are most easily spotted on dark-coloured cars and especially on metallic painted ones. This is becoming too long post, I will explain more if the need arises.

    But anyways here are the drawings.
  5. Oh yeah, few other things I could show at the same time, two 3d models.

    I don´t need to tell you guys which cars these are, they (hopefully) are recognizable.

    And as you can see the other one is not yet finished.

  6. this is the second thing i've done with photoshop, i was going for the blue xenon light effect but kinda stuffed it up, and wasnt painting on a new layer so i couldnt just undo <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
