    I'm not feeling well.........

    Tried to differenciate myself with a new angle and new curves and such. I used TorRed's Corvair Sketch as an Underlay, and came up with this.

    It's a Pontiac G5.

    I know. The Wheel is a bit off.

    It's a nice improvement and a change from your normal work. But for perspective's like this there are rules, rules about proportion, the angle of the ellipses for the wheels, the vanishing points and all that. Drawings in this perspective can't just come out of the pencil and look correct, the rules must be followed.

    By overlaying I believe you are getting a feel for this perspective, which is good, but the next step would be learning how to draw that way independently, and to do so you must learn the rules first.

    Would there be one or two vanishing points?

    From this perspective you probably only need one vanishing point. Note how TorRed lays down his guidelines first, even the brickwork groundcover acts as a perspective guide. Wouldn't hurt to do a light outline sketch and then rule in some vanishing point lines like TorRed does over the windows, hood etc.

    BTW do you have a set of French Curves and Ellipses?

    There will be only one vanishing point, that's the one moving away from the sides and outlining the lines for the windshield, hood, headlight location etc... (i.e. towards the horizon line)

    This is very crucial for a correct drawing. Guidelines are key, and the drawing can be drawn easier if you already have the design ready (i.e. from doodles or something). That way you just have to locate where everything should correctly go rather than design and sketch at the same time, which can be very frustrating.

    Anyways I really like how Torred's inspiring yet another generation of new designers and sketchers! I was just like you a long time ago, staring at his sketches in awe and wondering if such amazingness was even possible. I still do that today, but I think it is possible.
