Default Caricature of my Bugeye

*Update 4/7 see post #67*


So I've been a fan of Huck Gee's, Love Craig Woida's, Scott Robertson's, & Daniel Simon's work to name a few. All these guys have a passion for both art and Cars. I too share this passion, but rarely get the time to express it. I've always wanted to try and do a painting of my car, but have never had the time to do it, that is until now (work has slowed down a bit)! I am using a good ole pencil & Photoshop as I don't have Illustrator.

So far I got bout 2 days in. Please be patient, as it will take several posts to finish this project. Enjoy!

Here is what my car looks like for those who don't know it.





So the first step for me is to come up with a drawing deciding on compostion, and asking myself what single angle would best represent my Rex?


Next I did initial blocking in and layed in photos of the SVN's (courtesy of Joe aka Wheeldude). I did this to give me a feel for general light source. Also ends up that there wasn't too much distortion in laying in the wheels and they seem to hold up.


Refining paint, trying to pull out distinctive shapes of the bugeye through light and shadow. This project has been particularly challenging as my car is metallic silver, so there's not a lot of high contrast gloss to give it an immediate "punch". It is a balance of working within the value range to give it some detail.


Here I start to pull out the line drawing so that the paint work does most of the defining of the shapes.


So here is some more refinements. Added the lights, and starting to paint in more to get rid of the pencil drawing: I'd say I'm about 75% done. Still got a lot to clean up and fill in!



Update 4/6

more refinement adding higher frequency reflections to paint, also cleaned up some areas that were mushy . . . still have more to fix, but here's where it's at:
