Old car by francoclun Old car by francoclun
is tedious to say the same thing all the time, but this is my last effort. At this point each drawing is a struggle and a satisfaction. I'm happy with the result, although it is still below expectations. I needed to draw something different from portraits, a new challenge that would allow me to learn something new. This drawing was perfect for this purpose. So many different textures and a very high level of detail are a fun test.

The inspiration came from the beautiful drawings of cars I have seen on Deviantart, but, of course, I wanted to do things in my way. Here is my car, which also contains the human element. Not really a supercar but a car full of charm
The original photo reference is made by Wayman (thanks, my friend) and you can found it here: [link]

Approximately 110 working hours (two months)
Pencil on Fabriano watercolor paper artistico (300 gr)
size A3

Hope you like it
Thanks in advance for the faves and the watch

Old car by *francoclun is an amazingly detailed pencil drawing in which the time and effort poured into the piece really shows.

Grazie mille. Certo, hai il mio permesso, ma forse sarebbe meglio che tu provassi a disegnare direttamente dall'originale, ma è una tua scelta. Buona giornata :-)

Many people when criticize my drawings say the opposite: why wasting 100 hours when a camera does the same job in a few seconds? Thanks a lot for the kind words :D
