A Week of Drawing Cars

This past week I’ve been participating in daily prompts on reddit’s SketchDaily.

1952 FordIt was car week and I started Monday with the 1950s Pickup Truck prompt. After a little Google search I picked a 1952 Ford F-1.

Exotic CarThe next day was Exotic/Super Sports Cars. I had no idea what car I picked until someone told me that it’s a modified car in the Bosozoku style.

Rat RodWednesday was Rat Rod day. Spent a little extra time on this sucker.

1949 OldsmobileNext day was all about the American Muscle Cars. Found out that the 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 was debatably the first.

Vintage Concept CarCar week concluded with Concept Cars. I went with a classic style concept car.

Left Hand SketchesYesterday was Non-dominant Hand Figure Studies. I spent about an hour sketching with my left hand and a mechanical pencil and then inked the sketches in. My right hand didn’t like sitting by the wayside. I kept unconsciously trying to switch hands. It’s a battle to resist years of training and habit.

Though I’ve never been a fan of drawing cars, these prompts have been great practice. They’re pushing my comfort boundaries. We’ll see how next week goes.
