Drawing cars, version 0.0.2

29 Oct

It is somewhat resembling a Dodge Stratus, but, boy, what I had to change and modify to get to this result.

Of course, the drawing isn’t finished. I just need to do some more versions, until I can get to this stage without too much problems, and then go beyond it.

That is all.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 24

29 Oct

I wondered what Bob Weiner would look like if he were a car.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 24

This fan art is made to help sell an excellent comic book, published as a collected trade of the web comic PC Weenies by Krishna Sadasivam. The comic book is called Rebootus Maximus.

As I’m not that good at drawing cars yet, you might think that I used some tricks to create this image. And you would be right. After giving enough contrast to the image with Levels and drawing with white and black, I used the paint artistic filter of GIMP to give it a painterly look and feel. It disguises many of the little mistakes I made.

That is all.

Drawing cars, version 0.0.1

29 Oct

Drawing cars is very different from drawing humans. The proportions are quite different and if you don’t own a car, and don’t care about cars, you’ve probably never had a good look at a car.

Drawing cars, version 0.0.1This is my first, very naive version of a Dodge Stratus, the first example from the book “Draw Cars” by Doug DuBosque. It is because DuBosque’s tutorial is so easy to follow that the drawing actually resembles a car.

Nevertheless, it is too short. Obviously, measuring the distance between the wheels in the number of wheel diameters is key.

I’m excited about this, because it forces me to draw with more precision. I tend to judge proportions badly, while I believe that is one of the most important parts of setting up a sketch. My hope is that drawing cars will improve my skills and help me to draw humans with more refinement than I currently do.

That is all.
