1962 Corvette Sketch by Daniel-Storm 1962 Corvette Sketch by Daniel-Storm
1962 Corvette Sketch
Mechanical and ebony pencils on 11X18 Canson sketch paper, time: one baseball game

This sketch is for :iconlpagan401: , and is taken from his wonderful gallery with his permission. [link]

This sketch clearly shows the grid pattern that i use when starting a sketch. The grid helps me layout the sketch so i can make it fit the drawing paper just as i want it to, and also keep the major parts of the car in proper proportion. This grid is made of one inch squares, but half inch squares or smaller can be used to draw small parts such as the wheels to shore up proportions in any area of a drawing where high attention to detail is required. This grid was drawn darker than usual so you can see it. If you use a grid, you want it lighter and easier to erase. The lightly drawn grid is erased as i go, or sometimes i will erase it entirely after my contour drawing is done.

Just a fun sketch that i did last night while watching Adam Wainright of the St. Louis Cardinals pitch a complete game, two hit shutout against the Milwaukee Brewers. Cardinals won 8 to 0.

This is a beautiful sketch. I'm doing a painting of a similar corvette for my art class and was frantically looking around trying to find some good sketches to reference the line quality of. Yours is perfect. I hope you dont mind :)

Corvettes are probably my favorite cars, hands down. They are such gorgeous cars, on the inside and out. For being just a sketch, this is incredibly detailed. I love it.

Also, the Cardinals rock. :horns:

thanks for the tips in descrip. I'd like to draw some cars but everytime I try they turn out wonky. I'm not very used to drawing more 'angular' things or stuff that has to line up perfectley to look right, so I will try the grid idea.

oh i see, can't believe i forgot about a grid. i was using this back in high school art 1 to draw my cars. draw whatever you see in the little squares yep yep. really like your shadow details, tricky business with all that light going every which way.
