LeMans Contender by Lyle462 LeMans Contender by Lyle462
With LeMans not too far away...I found some inspiration.
Pencil on 400 Strathmore (which makes things a bit more grainy).

Yes I saw that awhile back! I loved it. It was on the Speed Channel about 3-4 months ago.

I did too. Love the sound of the diesel. It seems odd not hearing a racing engine reving so tightly. Great technology to say the least.

Ha! I have no clue. I'm pretty busy so I had to draw in real small segments.

Particularly nice is how you depicted the reflective surface of the windshield. It's so real looking.

Thanks Zac. I really like the Strathmore 400 paper. It makes all the difference in the world. It's so much easier to achieve the deep dark tones.

I love the angle. I just wish I knew how you got so perfect with your cars.

Lyle462 Featured By Owner May 29, 2009
Thanks. These aren't the most difficult to draw as some might think. It's a big rectangle really. The main idea is just keeping the angles parallel. When I get the time I'd like to put together a step-by-step tutorial for the fun of it. Things would make more sense then. I'm not very good at explaining things.LOL

Pwnsome, i love the Peugeot (i love all LMPs with a roof), actually, you should draw the Pescarolo PlayStation 908 sometime when youre motivated, i find its livery even cooler. lol Great job as always!

Thanks. Oh yes...there's a bunch of those I'd love to draw. I have cd's full of ideas that's been sketched out. It's just a matter of finding the time ya' know.

Well...i see you keeping your edge! In particular i love the tonal ranges in these dark values throughout the car, and then you really punch them up in the glass and the tires! I also like the composition of this piece with the car at that angle...you really handled the foreshortening very well. It gives the car a great presence! And all those little lightening of the values over all those planes and contours! Yep...i'd say you got your mojo working again! :clap: :boogie: :clap:

:iconlyle462:
Lyle462 Featured By Owner May 29, 2009
LOL! I have to admit. With the way I handled the Bentley cartoon I said to myself, "Lyle , you're going to draw something with off angle wheels and a lot of spokes!" I have such a hard head. It's sort of like getting bucked off a horse. I wanted to get back on before I started doubting myself. Odd, yes but then I'm an odd person.HA
As always, I appreciate you noticing all those "little things." Sometimes I wonder why I draw them but when someone notices...that just makes it cool ya' know.

Yes, i know! I like putting them in as well and getting that reaction from a viewer once in a while!

I understand taxing yourself right away. Hey, it works! I often go back to something i know i can do well. Or i did...i am much better at catching myself now.

Anyhow...that LeMans Contender was spot on gorgeous! :wave:

Thanks. Well I don't know really. I watched a movie called "Truth in 24" about the Audi team. They are pretty awesome. I'm such a racing fan that I really don't have a favorite. I just hope for safe, clean racing and may the best team win.

Nice work. I love the LeMans protoype cars. There have been some real unique looking designs since they changed the rules. I still miss the McLaren F1.

Oh you and me both. I'm such a racing geek anyway! I know what you mean about the McF1. I know it's F-1 but I miss seeing Ayrton Senna. Man that was sad day for this guy when he crashed. What a driver!

Yeah me too, the F1 GTR longtail was sexy. Just like the CLK GTR, Porsche 911 GT1 and the Toyota GT One. :D I miss these days of racing a bit. 8(
