Great work! I do a lot of little caricatures with various coloured Sharpies. I can't imagine getting the kind of texture and tonal changes you do with them. I'm guessing this drawing is fairly large, so the line weight is relatively small in relation to the drawing? Did you do it in all black Sharpie?
That's cool. I need to buy more various colors myself. I'd love to do something like the McLaren in different colors. The drawing is around 11x17 inches. I have it filed away already and I'm too lazy to dig it out to measure. LOL It might be a little larger than that but it's an approximation.
Yes, I drew it all in black Sharpie. I used the fine tip for the obvious areas and the not so fine for the larger black areas. I had to be kind of quick about it though to avoid streaks. It did help drawing it on 100lb smooth bristol.
That makes sense! I only use the standard-sized Sharpies and draw on regular printer paper since they're just quick 15-minute caricatures and it would be expensive to use my good Strathmore bristol for them. It would be interesting to try a more serious drawing on "real" paper and with different types of Sharpie. You've got me intrigued!
I know what you mean about conserving paper. The good stuff is getting pretty expensive now. It's ironic how much difference the type of paper makes when you're going for something serious. I didn't realize how much difference it actually made until about four years ago. Before then all I used was 50lb Strathmore drawing paper. Good stuff but it fades to yellow pretty quickly.
Thank you for noticing. Stippling is something new for me and I've come to really enjoy it. I have several more stipple ideas lined up but for now I'm working on an old deco art poster. I had to go back to color for a bit just to keep in practice.
Some of the fine line art pens are great for color stippling if you are ever in the mood. It is a really cool way to blend colors without actualy mixing the colors together. Think pixels instead of actualy converging the colors. loads of fun! Your art Rocks! Would still love to see a Boeing China Clipper, Alfa Romeo 8C or Pagani Zonda R would be awesome too!
Any time. My favorite pen for drawing/stippling is a Stabillo marker. $.99 each and come in a bunch of colors, plus they DO NOT SMEAR! Try it, it's really cool. I'v tried to make them smear and it's almost imposible! Happy Stippling!
Thanks! Yep, I kind of went back and forth with stippling. I figured it would be easier to show depth.
It's a wild one already for sure! I have to take my hat off to Webber at China. I couldn't believe he climbed from 18th to 3rd. Crazy. Of course Lewis was his hard charging, steady self. The kid has a whole lot of maturity to say the least. Great driver!
It´just impossible. I don´t reach my mind how can somebody draw so so good. All your pictures are just amazingly are so correct and real. Just big WOW. I would be so happy, if I would reach to your skill level some day. Amazing...
