I’m not really sure what the issue was with this car drawing, but I had to sketch it three times before I could get the perspective correct. I had no intention of spending so long on it, but it took me about a week to get it looking right…and that’s just too darn long to spend on one illustration! I liked the design though, so that’s really the only reason I stuck with it until I got the perspective halfway decent. It’s still not perfect, but it is what it is.
Anyway, I really (really) like dark wheels on cars so I wanted to try doing that in this rendering. I think they turned out all right, though the design of those rims are a little bit overly simplistic. That’s one thing I need to work on as I continue drawing cars – my designs are a bit too safe and rigid and I believe it would be in my best interest to loosen up a bit.
