    Thought I'd share

    Ok so I'm flipping through an old car mag, and I get to a picture of a red Pontiac Wave. So never having actually drawn a real car, I thought I'd give it a whirl. Therefore I used the pic as a reference (though it was in a completely different perspective) and drew this! Obviously some things are off like perhaps the proportions:



    It was the most fun I've ever had drawing a car!

    Here's my first marker render ever, now this is going to suck big time because I've never done this before and I only had a red Crayola marker and color pencil to work with. But nonetheless, here it is:



    I touched it up a bit in photoshop and since I didn't have a grey marker I didn't do the rims! And the 3 series is one of my fav cars (keeping with the theme of drawing real cars).

    Nice job Burns.
    Very clearly anthopomorphic - headlight eyes, grille nose, under carriage skirt - teeth, etc...
    Well proportioned.
    Certainly sportier than the real-life product.

    Good job on both! It seems like a marker drawing would be tough because of the delicate pressure needed to give anything other than full strength. You definately make it look easy.

    You did a great job considering what you had to work with. I think that the 2004+ 330Ci's are one of my favorite vehicles...

    The Wave looks better than the real thing.
