Quick sketch of a 1988 Ford Mustang GT
Yeah, it’s been a long time since my last update. But I’m still here drawing cars whenever I get a chance! I have to be honest though – I haven’t really had much of a chance for the past few months with work and real life eating up all my free time. I’ve been so busy that any time I found myself with enough time to sit down and draw a car, I just didn’t have the energy to do so. So I basically just sketched and doodled a lot, trying to ensure that I don’t lose practice.
With that said, I haven’t drawn much of anything since last July that I feel is worthy of posting to this blog. But I’m having the itch to start drawing with vigor again, and here is my first attempt.
It’s a sketch of a slightly modified 1988 Ford Mustang GT (wide tires plus aftermarket hood), and my goal was to sit down and draw this from start to finish in one fast session. Hey – like I said, I don’t have much free time these days so I wanted to take advantage of the several hours I had to spare. This drawing only took about an hour to do, which surprised me due to the fact that drawing real cars takes a bit of extra time to make sure the proportions are correct. Is this drawing perfect? No. And I don’t care. I just wanted to draw a Mustang darn it, in a loose but stylistic way.
Just like all my other automotive art, this was done on a Wacom Graphire 4 drawing tablet using SketchBook Pro.
