Sketching feet is what helped me with footwear proportions the most and was recommended to me by both Yo and Dwayne Edwards. Also, I think adding in a ground line is going to help especially in profile view.

Nice work

Time for an update.

The B&O sketch made me realize that I need much more work with ellipses and exploded view sketches! Any tips on effective ways to practice exploded view? (other than practice practice practice)

Love sketching cars when it comes to practicing line work, lighting, etc.

Tried two different approaches with this Bentley. 1) colour blocking 2) line sketch

I prefer the line sketch, but maybe it's because it looks more loose than the colour blocking one.

Things to work on: WHEELS and its details. I'm too slow at it.

Having fun here with Bentley inspired sketches. :lol: It looks like a light saber from Star Wars.

I could have continued this further by sketching how it would come out, etc etc, but I'm choosing to move on.

I really love the animal sketches. How long did those take you? Did you make them with a drawing tablet?

Thanks!

Each animal would take approximately 15-30mins depending on the level of detail I wanted to have. I use a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet for all my digital sketches.
