steelcity6 I went to the art institute ..Ive been drawing since an early age. I consider myself resonably talented .What I noticed is at my job (typesetter for printer)I dont really draw anymore the computer does all the work. I recently started sketching again .The one thing I can say is Practice,Practice ,Practice.

Note that I said instructor, not teacher, I don't think you can teach "art" you can only instruct in the techiques used to create it. That is where to "born to" comes in. As for drawing the best thing is to draw, a lot. I don't have it at hand but there is a great set of advice from a great artist that basically says draw all the time. Sketch and then refine over and over. You don't need special markers or tools until you need them if you get what I'm saying... they are for finished work. You might also notice that Foose uses a lot templates to get perfect ovals for tires and wheels, masking papers to stop the marker line from going too far, and over lays for the airbrushing and highlighting. But above all else draw. If it is any help look at the concept illustrations on the other shows, the guy who works for Barry white isn't nearly as good, and alot of the others are more cartoony. I don't knock cartoons I published a few.
I agree with all the above when iit comes to different levels, any one could be a tattoo artist since it's basically a template, but when someone comes in and asks for a freehand, then your stuck, I was already drawing well at age 8 and other than injuries to my hands, I could probably still do it just as well if not better than when computers started taking over. I've had many published and sold works but would never consider myself a pro or even a novice at this when my jaw drops at some peoples works.

What is extremely funny is when 46highboypu and others say that you create your own style which is totally true and when instructed well, you will have your own style. I remember failing art in almost every grade because they actually wanted me to just copy anothers style, which I don't personally like. Then they shoved painting barns, but it was a painting we were copying, lol.

It's always a good start to follow someones lead, but then move on as you see fit.

BadtotheBone03 Chip foose was drawing at a young age and discovered his talent then. When he was a kid he didnt want toys for christmas he wanted art supplies. He then also went to the 2ND transportation Design school in the U.S. (art center in california). I am attending the College for Creative Studies. Its the newly number 1 art school in the U.S. If you want to be a good artist like chip foose it takes alot of time and hard work. You should just go look at hot rods or whatever you want to draw and just draw them over and over. That way when your looking at the picture you see more in it. Once you have drawn that picture atleast 10 times it will look amazing to you. The kinds of things you should also practice is foundation arts such as still lifes, contours and things like that. Once you have picked most of those things up, introduce yourself into different medias such as painting, photoshop, and alias. Chip Foose uses prismacolor markers. If I were you I would use copic markers for your greys which are cool greys and warm greys. For color markers I would choose the AD markers, there nice and juicy and look great. A whole set of these will average out to about 500 dollars. But if you get on ebay or something you can buy copics whole set with the colors and then buy the greys in another set for about 400. After you have completed this you can start to practice and after about 4 years of practice you would be quite accomplished.

tfeverfred He uses the same markers you would find in a GOOD art supply store. I don't remember the brand. I have seen glimpses of the name on his show. They look like Prismacolor brand. I have used them and they are great.

I have seen Chip Work in person, and can tell you what he does in a few sec's with a maker or pen, it takes other very good car designers days and sometimes weeks to put down.
I think that type of talent cant be learned but you are born with it . like all the great artists in time most are not really
appreciated until they are gone. Chip is truly one of the greats.

Zumo I use Illustrator. I am creating a line of T shirts that I will be selling off of my site. The 67 truck will be the first but it will be Black like the Duece with the logo and all added as well.

Art Center

Foose is an Art Center graduate I believe. It's the top school for transportation as far as design, concept, etc. I didn't have the bucks or talent to get in there 35 years ago so went to the University of Cincinnati to learn product design after I already knew the basics of drawing. Drawing automobiles or anything else for that matter can be taught if you are willing to learn. Lots of hours of practice are required to get anywhere near "good". The talented ones just seem to be able to picture what they want and draw it once they learn what "their" technique is.
Today the big difference is computer aided design or CAD for short. Most schools that are decent at teaching design (and some that aren't) have the latest CAD equipment so you can create realistic concept art that looks like a photo of a real car. You can also play with it and simulate drawing styles and media as well. Foose has said he likes to sketch his designs and so do I. I'm not nearly as good as he is for quickly putting ideas down on paper that have such a good composition or style. He traces the basic car with pencil before using the markers to color it. That is what increases the speed. That's also what gets you a job in design or any illustrative field is the speed and quality of the thing you are creating.
If you just want to learn how to draw cars find a local art school or art program to begin learning the basics of how to draw, color, render with different media, etc. Drawing the cars will be up to you once you've learned the "process" of art creation. Good luck!

pigjamelectric I just thought that some of you might like to see Christian Denayer's artwork. I grew up reading comic books with his stuff.

Excellent Link

Thom Taylor has excellent work in this book. You can go inside the book at the link given and see one of the examples. This is the best way to gain knowledge. Practice and don't be discouraged. When doing the outline, get that right before starting the detail. If you start with the detail and then find out something is wrong with the outline you will be too discouraged to fix it or you won't bother to fix it and it will plague you every time you look at it.

Led Sled You might want to check out this book. My bookstore here doesn't carry it, so I can't personally recommend it, but Thom Taylor was a very influential designer back in the day, doing work for Boyd Coddington, such as CadZZilla and the like. Here's the link,

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...59312?v=glance

As for developing an artistic talent, you just gotta practice. I do believe that you are somewhat born with it, but if you keep practicing and reading up on different techniques, you can't help but get better! Good Luck,
-Colin
