Talking Lotus Exige 2005 Just Finished!

As I promised about two hours ago.

Ref Pic: http://www.fast-autos.net/lotus/05exige.html

Mine:


What do you think?

p.s. I didn't trace it KustmAce! like the freehand TVR I did which you wrongly thought was traced.

I think it looks excellent.
Your freehand skills are awesome.

How large is the car rendering?

I would just make it darker like Quarter_mile said and add more ranges (pencil shades) esp. on the body.

Re: Lotus Exige 2005 Just Finished!

Thanks.

On a 1024 by 768 resolution monitor, It's exactly the same size as the original. My TVR was probably twice that. I'll try doing what you two said.

For my next project I'm thinking of doing a Caterham R500 Evolution. Ref Pic: http://www.fast-autos.net/caterham/r500evo.html

I think I might spend a little longer on this as there is alot more detail and reflections.

Nice job man. I can not stand drawing something smaller than 12x18, even then I dont like that.

Re: Lotus Exige 2005 Just Finished!

it may LOOK like you're tracing, but it's hard to tell because the size of your drawing may just be close to the same size of the ref. I personally dont think you traced. but, I think the same thing as the others....darker

i honestly dont car if you trace your cars but please dont try to deny it.

i didn't stretch or distort any of the pictures so they would fit i anly resized it in proportion. looks pretty close to me




tracing isn't a bad thing (to me).

sorry if you honestly didn't trace it but it just seems too close.

Re: Lotus Exige 2005 Just Finished!

Bloody hell did I get it that close?

No I didn't trace. I just measured out the length between the wheels and things like where the number plate start.

There are some things out like the spoiler and the letters on the number plate, and the right head light, which would be perfect if I had traced it.

Anyway, look at Stufbyalex's detailed outlines, their much more detailed than mine and are probably perfect aswell, and he doesn't trace.

It's just he spends longer on his drawings.
