Two of my most recent car sketches
Things have been really busy recently, but I’m still making every effort to sketch at least 10 minutes every day. “Making an effort” doesn’t necessarily mean that I actually do a sketch or two…it just means that I try to find the time every day to do it. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don’t. Whatever.
Anyway, here are two of my most recent car drawings. Both are just really fast and loose design studies in two different perspectives – different cars though. I actually prefer drawing side profiles (maybe because it’s easier!), but I do force myself to pick a different perspective for each drawing that I do. My line quality is getting better – though still not where I want it to be. But that’s not my biggest concern right now. Design is where I feel I’m the weakest! Yeah, I tend to draw the same shapes and forms over and over again, and from this point forward I’m going to try and stop doing that. It’s hard. I really envy really creative people that can pull great design out of their head over and over again.
I’d also like to spend more time working on the little details. Things like engine parts, wheels, part lines, and headlights – you know…the stuff that makes a car a car! But my limited time (combined with my short attention span) makes that stuff difficult to do.
