Car Pencil Sketching Tutorial
Key points to remember
in this video, we see how we should do to obtain a real good car pencil sketch.
This is a classical Prismacolor black sketch done with care and discipline, starting from a white clean paper pad the designer starts figuring out the good perspective and proportions for his car sketch. Later he will work his line drawing to see the car, then it is the time to work out the line drawing quality with stronger lines to give depth to his drawing, at the end adding design details.
Once this is done we can start adding the shading with our soft black Prismacolor, it is important to have a good control of pencil strokes and lines to make a good shading effect, the 3D depth is given thanks to this technique.
Shading the sketch is a bit like modeling it! So when, with our pencil, we apply the shadows we must be careful how we do it. The objective is to sketch and shade the sections of our car according to the light and shadows rules.
Watch the video and enjoy.
