Still drawing at least one car sketch a day
Yeah, I’m still here! Life has been busy lately and I haven’t been drawing as much as I want, but I’m still making an effort to draw at least one car a day. That may seem like a rather rigid goal for someone so busy, but I’m trying to be as loose about it as possible. Basically, I don’t care how much time I spend on each sketch, nor do I car how well they turn out. All I want to do is make sure that my brain and hands stay in sync with one another, which will naturally help me to become a better artist. That’s one of the most important things I remember from design school – we were told (forced) to DRAW DRAW DRAW!!! It didn’t matter what the subject matter was – the key was to never stop practicing, and we all became better because of it.
Anyway, here are two recent car sketches of mine. I cannot claim these as my own designs. As a matter of fact, I blatantly copied some cool sketches I found on the internet. So…please, do not send me rude comments in attempts to call me out. I’m just trying to stay in practice, without trying to worry so much about design and aesthetics. I’ve been out of the automotive design world for so long now that I find myself getting hung up of form and surface, when all I really want to focus on right now is sketching technique.
Both sketches were created in Sketchbook Pro on a Wacom tablet. My line quality is getting better, don’t ya think?
