Here is my submission for the car. I struggled with the wheels but still enjoyed the lesson.  Thank you Nolan. Comments and critiques are gratefully received.   Patricia

 :heeha: Woohoo Patricia!!! Excellent job, and look at that emblem! You must have a magnifier bigger than mine!  :detective:    ;D

Gorgeous! I'll take one and I don't even care what colour it is!  :yippee:
Cheers, Val

 :thankyou: :thankyou:  Val and Mea for your lovely comments.  Val, I too would take one except that getting out of a low car as you age is becoming quite difficult, I would need a crane fixed to the roof to help me out.  :2funny: Strangely enough, I didn't use my magnifying glass this time, my eyesight must be improving.

beautiful Patricia :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I feel the highlights are a tad dark though, if you lighten them up again you will increase the contrast and make the car look even more shiny O0

 :thankyou:  Nolan, for your comments and suggestions which I shall do.


Nolan, I have just had a look at the original drawing I did and it is actually so much lighter than in the photograph.

Here's my effort - haven't done the shadow under the car yet... but was late and I needed some bed!

I did 'struggle' with the detail (or 'lack of detail... just showing hints') inside the car...it all looks very flat to me, and I went quite dark...

 :(

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  A good job Adrian, however, it is a bit too light, which could be the fault of your camera but if not, you need to darken your drawing in order to show the hi lights better which will also then make your car "pop". Wasn't as easy as it looks but then nothing is.     Patricia

It is a bit darker than it looks... this was the scanner mode I used I think (I normally just use the camera on my phone in natural light - seems to give a pretty accurate representation).

I probably will need to darken it more as well (shadow under the car needs doing anyway)... but not sure how to 'add the perception of detail' inside...

As for time... this took ages! - must be at least 4 hours so far!

Adrian,

Coming along nicely.  Agree that a darkening would really make it shine.
