'58 Buick Limited by Melissas-Artwork '58 Buick Limited by Melissas-Artwork
Something else I've often considered drawing... a classic car. So I finally found one, a '58 Buick Limited.
For anything else you'd like to know about this car, and more pictures of it go here: www.ev1.pair.com/buick/buick_1…

I simply added some contrast and changed a few details (especially the background, lol).

Edit - Updated with a better file (and watermark now, sorry) and it is now available as a print.

A4
HB pencil

:wow: wauuw, the shading is so even! And the highlights are wonderful! I really adds another dimension to the drawing! Normally, drawings of vehicles easily become 'just cars', but this has a great amount of detail! :)

Now that's just a blissful sight to see. You handled the chrome and the perspective exceedingly well...


(I can see why you chose this car as a subject. Overall, it's lines remind me of the four-door DeSoto Fireflight, which is my favorite car ever produced.)

It's funny, when I show this picture to people I get a lot of different responses about what kind of car it is. Even people that know a lot about old cars have a hard time figuring it out. Only one person knew it was a Buick, and that was by looking at the hubcaps.:O_o:
