Norton Commando update - WIP

Hi all, this piece is being done at the request of a fellow work colleague after he had seen some of my other drawings. This is way out of my comfort zone, but I never shy away from a challenge. Any comments and or advice would be most welcome. I would ask about the background as the original picture looked like a washed out yellow. Should I lightly colour the background? or should it be left blank?

Re: Norton Commando WIP

Your off to a good start, I personaly would lightly shade the background, this will make the highlights of the chrome stand out more. Looking forward to seeing it completed. :)

Re: Norton Commando WIP

On a project like this i would recommend using stencils and ellipse templates,I would not consider this cheating either,hope this helps :D
And the best of luck.

Re: Norton Commando WIP

The question about an ellipse stencil was exactly what I asked about a year ago! I ended up buying one...BUT, realised that they're quite inflexible given that the ellipses are just one size and scaled up/down. In other words, using the stencil won't help when you want a thin ellipse or a really fat ellipse...as all the ellipses are just medium. Hope that makes sense! :mrgreen:

Norton Commando WIP - Update

Slow progress with this drawing as it is not something I am out of my comfort zone. However, I am enjoying the change of subject. I am working on the front tyre wall at the moment. Comments as usual are welcome.

Re: Norton Commando update - WIP

I would try to get the wheels to look a little more round. They look a bit lumpy right now. Other than that it looks great!
