No doubt it would be easier to use ink with a brush but other then that to cover large areas the faber-castell big brush pens are nice. I think they only make them in the gray scale though.

Vintage Auto

The usual suspects as far as medium, pen and ink with watercolor pencil and some Neocolor.

Drawing cars for me is kind of a love hate thing, now and then it goes pretty easy and I have fun with it which is the whole idea but more often it ends up with me wasting a lot of paper and repeatedly asking myself why the hell I am doing this. I can't even narrow it down to one thing unless its loss of brain cells. There may be a natural limit talentwise but thats not what I mean, one time it will be forgetting little things like drawing the headlights in (which I did this week and on a drawing that turned out pretty good, better then this one in fact) or other times its forgetting which direction my perspective is from one end of the thing to the other. Most often its the #$#(( tires. Tires aren't perfectly round of course unless your looking at them dead on and they aren't grounded. More often they are seen from an angle. I have those circle templates but try not to use them. Never mind all this, just bitching while I'm waiting for the upload to finish.

Anyway, the weather is discouraging, getting way too cool too early to suit me and somehow summer came and went and I didn't even notice

. Good the thing finished so I can stop complaining and post this, bye.
