American Style by DiRi American Style by DiRi
Ok, now this drawing got me to my drawing limits, and I thought I would never get this one done. This was my toughest drawing ever! And though it sometimes was fun to draw, and this was a whole new experience, I think I won't draw cars anymore in the near futur...

Hope you all like it.

Original size: 55x75cm (22x30")
Technique: charcoal and pencils
Time: 150 hours

I feel the same about motorcycles.

The result of your labours is fantastic though.

I am still in Peru. Just three more days. Stopping by at my brothers place in New York on the way back, how long I stay there depends on the bloody vulcano.

Yay! Mustang!
I like the composition with the car filling the page.
Your proportions are spot on. You did a really good job of capturing the lines and character of this iconic car.
You have a beautiful range of values here.
And good use of value changes to show the planes and contours of the car body.
I hope you don't stop drawing cars as you are very good at it. Leave out the women, and it will be easier!
It's a very good piece of work! :clap:

Der Mustang ist wirklich klasse geworden, aber ich sehe bei der schönen Dame das dich da der Wille verlassen hat. Speziell im Gesicht. Ist immer ahrt an so etwas dran zu bleiben.

haste vollkommen Recht. Problem war einfach, dass ich den Mustang zuerst gezeichnet hatte, und beiim Zeichnen der Dame wurde das Bild (trotz mehrfacher Fixierung), immer verschmierter... und da ist mir dann die Lust vergangen.

Ober das Gesicht ist eigentlichg ganz gut (für die Größe: ca. 2Euro Stück), denn ihre Kinder haben sie sofort erkannt :-) Nur mit Ihrem Körper selber bin ich net zufrieden... aber sie wollte es so...

Oha das ist wirklich klein. Bin ned so ein fan vom zeichnen so kleiner Gesichter. Das steht mir noch bei meiner Transformers zeichnung bevor.

Ja Ok der Körper wirkt ein wenig klein im Vergleich zu Auto. Das wäre jetzt so das einzige was mich stören würde. Naja häng dich nicht so sehr dran auf. Das verwirrt nur ;).

ne... ich häng mich schon net auf ;-)

Habe mit dem Bild wirklich ne neue Erfahrung gemacht, die ich sicherlich noch weiter vertiefen möchte (irgendwann einmal), und jetzt kommt erstmal noch ein Auftrag, wo ich wieder in meiner Größe zeichnen kann :-)

okay, it's just the way the leg goes up to her but, looks a bit odd to me, but then you'll see that when someone sits like that it does look like that ^^'

I stopped counting, maybe it has been even more hours... and I was totally impatient the last couple of hours, that's why the result doesn't satisfy my 100%

Hi Dirk,

Wow man, I love all the detail in grill, the headlights, beautiful rendering of the glossy paint job. You did an excellent job on the car. Now, I am going to go out on a limb here at the risk of pissing off you and your loyal fans. I am concerned about the girl on the hood. It almost looks to me like you might have rushed her as there are some issues with the appearance of her face. Don't get me wrong here, I am a huge fan of your work and really admire your skill and technique with the pencil.....I just see a problem with how you have represented her face.

I hope you are not offended by my comment and if you are, I didn't mean anything malicious by my comment.

Hey Craig,
no worries about the critique, if I don't get any, I won't be able to improve my skills. And you are totally right, I really rushed the girl on the hood, because I had major problem with smudgins all over the drawing, even though I fixated it. And I didn't want to ruin the rest of the car. So now I now, what to draw first next time, it was a big mistake to draw the car first... well, it ws my first car drawing ;-)
