    Thread: ... sketchfest ...

    1. 02-22-2007 01:36 PM #1
      i thought it would be good to start a thread about weekly sketches, art, paintings, graphics etc. the subject matter can be whatever you want. this is a good thing so people can share their work and motivate each other with comments, criticism etc. lets begin [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      yeah, i had the red mk2 (the red dragon, hence my username reddragongti). i'm on my 4th car since then (a mk1 gti and 3 bmws...). seems like i've lived almost a whole lifetime since then (and even could've/should've died once... ).
      anyway, let's see some sketches... here's one of mine from a couple months ago--

      took forever since i don't have a tablet, just pen sketch rendered w/ a mouse....

      awesome sketch joel
      the subtlety is real well executed in the shadows and reflections well done!!!
      also you captured the 911 proportions,
      which in my opinion is one of the toughest to get!

      what's your major? you should see matt sperling's sport quattro sketches from a few years ago. that guy's got skills to pay the bills.

      Here's my quick attempt at a less hardcore, more daily driver version at least.

      Not too happy with the shading and wheels, but I need some sleep. I'll probably redo it tomorrow.

      Start sketching shapes. Carry a sketchbook with you. Start playing with warm grey's/cool greys and a ball point pen. Don't use pencil. Don't play with a tablet until you can render by hand well enough to go to electronic. Don't get dependent on sketchbook pro/illustrator. paper is your friend.
      Oh, last suggestion, find one type of paper and keep using that paper. learn how manipulate the paper and ink to do what you want. Personally, i use layout bond or arjo wiggins marker paper.
      That's all I can help with. I still haven't gotten a grasp on the tablet, gotta start using it again. I guess I like prismacolors and ball point more than I like my wacom.

      Forgot one thing, observe everything. Observe how different materials reflect light, whether it's a glass sitting on the table or a car and it's body lines.

      ok, this isn't so much of a sketch as much as it is a full blown canson rendering, but it's all i've got online

      Nice work everyone.
      reddragongti, I feel your pain of rendering with a mouse.
      I did this for someone on another forum.
      He wanted a sketch for a drift car project sponsorship proposal.
