Think I bit off more I can chew on my new subject area....

This took me about 10 attempts. I followed one of Spencer Nugent's tutorials on youtube using a box to start with and drawing the wheels etc but although the persepctive on the box looked good, when I tried to apply the lines of the car to the box the whole think would begin to look skewed..

In the end I just did an overlay of another artists drawing to get the position and angle of the wheels, bonnet and roof and then added my own design to it...

nice, you are getting there. Don't be afraid to elongate the wheelbase a little more and pull the center point of the grille forward in space. It will give the entire design more volume and body.

ok thanks Michael, I will try that in my next sketch.

Right now I'm getting a little frustrated with my linework. I wish it was cleaner but I guess i'm a bit impatient with the learning curve.
