I have had a little break from the human face and wanted to draw something more mechanical. So I have stored a few pictures for inspiration and I found an Aston Martin to draw.
One thing I have found with art that is useful is to start with a basic shape and then modify to bring you to the finished shape you want to achieve. I found that useful here.
First I created the lineage:
Once I had this sorted I could work on the hard part – the shading. This is where i find pencil a bit limiting If I was after a perfect shade over a large area it’s hard to get, this is clear in the grille part of the sketch.
But overall I’m quite happy with this, using the pencil and rough lines gives the depth and the illusion of shine to parts of the car.
So I might have a go at a few more cars or mechanical things. What do you think?
More faces to come soon I hope!
