Had it not been for your sig at the bottom of the car, this could pass as a B&W photograph - This is the most amazing shading work I have ever seen... You simply rock Tin!!

thanks guys.

think im gonna try and do a few more nascar pics. i've been drawing cars for about a year now and haven't sold any so i figured im in kentucky and rednecks love nascar so maybe ill be able to sell some.

only problem now is i dont know how much to try and sell the originals for, i dont want too little cos they take along time to draw, but at the same time i dont wanna offend people by asking too much. i've been looking at a few different artists websites and they are asking in the region of $800 US for similar sketches, dont know if they manage to sell them for that much and i think thats a bit pricey, ill probably shoot for around $100.

The only way would be to ask the artist as a customer and getting to the lowest price he is willing to sell and then you have the exact pricing!

These nascar sketches take forever to draw.

take a car for example dont look at your reference as a car, ignore the whole picture you have to get over what your brain pre concieves a car to be and let your eyes re-discover it. that is why the grid method is so helpfull it alows you to concentrate on one area at a time and gradually build up to a shape you will then recognize when you step back and look at the paper as a whole. when you shade build up the shading rather than laying it down thick, start with a light spread of lead then build it up until you are happy with the way it looks, you have to also look at different shaded areas that are the same tone and make sure you have drawn them the same, for instance a medium gray shade in a darker area will look lighter to you than the same medium shade in a lighter area of the car but you have to make them match.

basically forget what you think you know about how a car looks and copy what you see rather than what you think you see,

hope that helps you, keep it up and what day you will get there.

i cant draw i can copy and shade but ask me to draw a car from memory and it will look like a 2 year olds scribble
This was very useful information. thank you. it explains why my attempts at portraits come out as caricatures.
have not used a pencil/brush in years. time constraints have made me take the easy way out and shift to photography and photoshop. this thread is inspirational!
