Wow that shine on the car realy stands out, makes it look like a sort of HDR picture:D
But ofcourse I know you better, and know it's a cool piece of art that looks photorealistic^^
Nice work Lyle!:D:D

you're the master of smooth value changes. i can barely make a tiny chrome side pipe look like anything other than a bit of pipe with stripes painted on it, can't imagine a whole chrome car

on another note, i wish they'd drop the chrome and go back to papaya orange

Thanks a lot. Honestly, it's from time spent with cotton swabs and tissue. A lot of time yes, but still...you could do it too. I know what you mean about the orange!

the problem i have with smudging to achieve gradients is that i'll undo all the work with my hand when i move to another area, and also i mostly work with ball point pens which smudge easily for about 3 seconds and then don't smudge at all

:iconlyle462:
Lyle462 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012
Oh,I see. Yes, ballpoint pen would cause you to be careful. I can see that. When I use pencil I put scratch paper underneath my hand as I work but that wouldn't help much with pen.

Oh my! This is so well done!
You, Sir, are the all time champion of gradations!
And you have so many of them! It looks as if i could run my hand down the contours of that McLaren!
And of course, you always combine that multitude of gradations with such clean crisp edges where needed!
I love that highlight along the edge of the cockpit! Your attention to detail never wavers!
Another gem of a piece of automotive artwork! :clap:

Thanks so much Dan. I thought long and hard about drawing this particular car. The actual car is very shiny. Almost chrome looking. That being the case, I was a bit gun shy. I appreciate you looking at the details.:)

He then commented... "Did he do Vettel? Cuz if he does, he's not on my favorite list anymore". I may have tainted him with my F1 bias ;)
