Well Craig, I tried your step by step with a new picture. Worked out good.

I drew 51 Mercury. After scanning the inked picture, I noticed the girl looked like she had two left feet.

I tried to fix it in photoshop. Took me a good half hour after several attempts. Looked like she had a club foot at one point.

Man inking is hard. I don't know how you do it Malc. Wish I could get my lines that smooth.

1. The picture I based this on
2. The outline
3. The Photoshop.

That is much tidier. The lines dont have the fuzzies anymore and the colours fill the areas you want filled.

As for the lines, that comes with practice. I dont know about Malc but I have been hand drawing cars for nearly 30 years and I still struggle at times.

Patience, a steady hand, and practice, practice, practice, is what it takes.

Try different styles, try full on cartoons and try things besides cars, one of the hardest thigs to get right is people and animals IMHO as there are absolutely no straight ilnes and proportion is critical.

Keep it up you are doing good work and just need to do more.

Regards

Craig

Thanks, I appreciate your comments.

I love to draw but to spend so much time practicing at my ripe old age, I feel like I need a purpose. I'd like to eventally create a comic book but I'm not quite sure how to go about it. Plus I haven't come up with a storyline with a hook. Gotta find a writer....

For now I'll just keep practicing.

Good luck with the catoon idea.

I have often pondered the same thing.

To get good smooth lines etc. you need a set of ellipse templates and some french curves Those ellipse templates are the ones you see Chip Foose using.
These aids though are for serious drafting, for your type of art work should train yourself to do it freehand.

You know I bought a set of french curves and have not used them LOL

I find them cumbersome to use and prefer freehand.

I cut a ring out of cardboard and used it to elevate the curve or elipse off the work surface.This allows you to move the curve or elipse without smudging the line you have just drawn.
One of the large elipse or circle templates will also get the job done.

Not a bad idea Malc, smudging wasnt the problem though, just the use of the curves in general. I also have one of those elipse stencils which I use on rare occasions.
