Special thanks to Terry Smith for allowing me to draw a pencil version of his wonderful digital creation of this classic racer.

Simply WOW! Your work with pencil is awesome!

How long it takes to draw something like that? Also what format it is?

Thank you. This one took about two weeks, drawing 3 hours per evening. I drew it on Strathmore 400 (80lb) paper and the size is approx 11x17 inches.

Thank you. I can't believe it took me this long to draw such a successful racing machine. Must have been that "Can't see the forest for the trees" thing.LOL

Oh my goodness!
I like the composition with the car filling the picture plane at an interesting angle.
Yes, i know...it's not your composition. But you are the one who has used your value changes to bring this beauty forward towards the viewer from off of the page.
Once again your proportions are spot on, and you absolutely nailed the foreshortening. Again, it just about jumps off the page! You also nailed the lines and character of the Porsche 917.
You have a gorgeous full range of values here. Your technique in the use of value changes to show the planes and contours of the body is top drawer. I have no idea which passage of value changes i like the best!
Certainly the treatment of the window glass over the interior should be mentioned...instantly believable. And those headlamp assemblies are exquisite!
It's a beautiful piece of automotive art work, Lyle!
And it's a very strong piece of work, too! :clap:

I appreciate that Dan. When I ran across this I was instantly motivated. What was originally on the board was immediately shelved. I've learned that inspiration really helps when it comes to art. Well, I guess it helps with just about anything when you get down to it.

I know what you mean. If we are going to put a lot of time into a piece, then we really need to be engaged, enthusiastic about it. It helps so much! :)
