First Post - Corvette & McLaren

Hey all,

3 months ago i just found out that i'm not that bad in drawing. So i decided to give it a try and i'm having a lot of fun with it! But i still have a lot to improve and i'm standing in front of some problems, for example shading. The corvette was my first drawing (i didnt know much about techniques) i tryed to shade with blending stumps and i think i destroyed the paper so it doesnt look that good anymore. I think he mclaren looks a lot better, i didnt press too hard with my blending stumps but it still doesnt look perfect. Maybe you could give me some piece of advice how i could improve for example my shading skills!

in the end: i didnt look at the details drawing the corvette, so especially the wheels dont look that good. i tryed to change that with my other drawing and spent a lot more time for my mclaren. but i still think i see a certain improvement concerning those two drawings :)

so here we go:

critics are welcome, and sorry for my bad english. im from germany :mrgreen:

They look good. You might want to purchase some ellipses guides for drawing the tires, and other oval shapes.

Like Phan-Tom said, the tires look a tad hinky...but apart from that they both look awfully good to me.
Especially like the McLaren, and I'm not even a car guy. Nice work, Max.J.

max,they're not bad,as you said..work on the shading,use material or dry cotton face wipes instead of tortillions,use the tortillions for up-close work(when things border-line and you need more accuracy) Apart from that..nice work :D

They look pretty good. The McLaren turned out really well.
There's only two things that get me a little bit on the two:
-Your wheels [Sorry for being the eighteen thousandth person to point them out... circles are hard for some people, I understand!]
-On the corvette, I noticed the top line on the rear quarter panel doesn't quite have the corvette curve needed to make it flow. It's a bit... straight.

I kind of feel like a hypocrite for posting this; I am not bashing them by any means, because I am just learning cars... and not doing as well as you!

like the pictures,,proportion-wise are very good,,nice shapes,,only thing i would say is that i would make dark spots even more darker so it would give more depth,,other than that look great
