ok, first time here - been lurking around quite a bit but with some very nice nudging from other members on this site, I decided to give this forum a try.

Here is my first car, from a photo reference (omg I was standing next to it with my HS grad robe on!) my beloved 69 vw bug:

40 minutes, to the second! i timed myself :D

here's my take on the idea(i thought i'd go for the lateral thinking interpretation before anyone else get in there!)
using painter and taking about 35 mins approx...

my ''first'' car^^ I don't have one, and I'm still too young to get one, so I thought I'd draw the one I want! :thumbsup:

Oh the naiveity... It lasted about 2 months. I drew a comic to illustrate it in the end (here) (http://www.angelfire.com/comics/mthotd/HotD_21902.jpg).

Haha, you know which topic we had exactly one year ago (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=230062)?

Well I guess "my first car" has its first birthday, congratulations. ;)

Is there some reason my image is not showing up on its own? Do we have to use photobucket or is image shack acceptable?

My first car was a screamingly-awful orange 1974 Datsun station wagon that I only drove long enough to figure out I couldn't afford the insurance. :p

36 minutes. Wacom Graphire 4x5; Painter IX: used Acrylic, coloured pencils, and blender.

Hah nice Topic this is my early 80's Honda Civic 1983 or somthing I can't exactly remember I bought it for $500 and it was great! it actually had this rediculous paint job, green in the front, all yellow with two black racing stripes...lol...it looked like a commet! Her name was BEE-BEE...may she rest in peaces. 40min Painter. Drawn from memory.

Very perceptive. I'm sure Roberto will fix it once he finally notices. Today's sketch is rather sparse so far, isn't it? "My Pet" was a grand success as was that avatar war. I guess it's just whether people are enthusiastic about the topic or not. Or if it's a holiday...

Yes, I was figuring there would be more entries.

I just joined, so I missed the avatar war. (Just got my tablet and Painter IX last weekend.)

P.S. love your "lemon car." :)

Nice! Well good luck breaking it in. I look back on my first experiments in digital art and shudder. Not that I was a bad artist, but my skills didn't transfer directly to computer at first. One thing one of my art professors taught me that I've been grateful to her for is to never begin with a white canvas, and to never work at 100% opacity. It was good advice...though there are always exceptions ;)

Paint, paint, and paint. Refine your techniques and figure out what works and what doesn't. My personal favorite tools are oils at the moment and the "Just add water" blending tool is the best. Tons better than Photoshop's smudge finger tool. Try out all the brushes though. Find the kinds that best suit your tastes and have at it.

This speed paint post is a good excercise for everyone. I am still working on my own techniques and figuring out whether I'm a cartoonist or a realist.

Definitely sounds like good advice - if you've seen my few entries (all three of them!), you'll know that I haven't trained myself to work on the canvas before working on my "subject," but I really have been thinking about it. :p (Actually, I did make the yellow splotch background above before creating the Datsun.)

I have to say that, being a lefty who never used a lefty mouse, being able to move to a pen is really nice. (It's also kind of funny - I find myself guarding constantly against "smudging" my work with my hand! It's certainly an adjustment.) But I don't have nearly as much control with the tablet as with real media - in large part, I suppose, due to the extra hand-eye coordination (not to mention mental connect) required to draw on a tablet and see it on the screen. But I can't afford a Cintiq just now... :p

Part of the problem for me is that I had no art training other than in school - last bit was in Grade 8 or so, I think (more decades ago than I care to admit). I've always been a doodler / sketcher, but never did much with full colour in traditional media (other than coloured pencils, and occasionally felt pens - which really is still sketching). I did do some oil painting for a few months many years ago, but it really didn't amount to much.

Consequently, I'm pretty much utterly inadequate in the use of light and colour. Hopefully, practice and study will help rectify that. (I recently bought a pile of reading material, tho it's angle is more "design" as opposed to "art.")

This speed paint post is a good excercise for everyone. I am still working on my own techniques and figuring out whether I'm a cartoonist or a realist.
Heh. I like doing both too, although I'm not particularly good at either.

Anyway, I'd better stop. I plead guilty of dragging the thread off-topic. (My excuse is that it's not very active!) :D

Here is mine 35min,
It is not my car, because I havenīt real car, only some toys :D
Also I havenīt driver's licence yet. But It could be great have something like this.
I hope that it looks like Porsche Cayenne, because I donīt use any ref.
I like this car very much and I hope that once I will have one.

30min: Pencil, Pen, Makers
5min: Photoshop

I don't know whether it looks like the Porsche (never seen one), but very nice, rawwad! Reminds me of the concept drawings the automakers show the public - just the slightest hint of caricature to give an extra feeling of power and ingenuity.

I decided to post my first car - which i painted with Photoshop in this life. And steps of this process - i used Photoshop 6 and several MONTHS for that ;) so funny now - to see how it was:

You fitted the words "Porsche Cayenne" into the same sentences as "looks great" ;)

rawwad, your style rocks and your Porsche Cayenne looks better than the real thing. But I imagine your first car will be this (http://www.ccpc.net/~jaho/images/jmp/shrike3.jpg). :p
