'Sketchy'...

Post by Dragonkarr » Sat 26 Jan 2013, 15:10

Well, it is!

I recently began sketching again (I've neglected my pencils terribly) and thought I'd share a few. Some have already gone to new homes, and others are ready to go. Also halfway through my latest one (it'll serve as payment for some Hot Wheels and collector's cards :lol: ).

I don't use the PC at all, just plain old skool pencil to sketchpad :mrgreen:

For starters:

'85 Mercedes Benz (for DC)

Mk1 Lotus Cortina (also going to DC)

Very nice Karien!

I like your attention to the details that 'make' the car.
