Auto Design Instruction: Canson Mi-Teintes - These images are drawn during class as instructional demos for transportation design students and further touched up afterward.

  • Gorgeous!! Alfa did a lightweight racer which I think was called the Disco-Modulo, your design is reminiscent of that car.

    13 years ago

  • Thanks Gary, I'll check the Alfa out.

    13 years ago

  • I'm really encouraged to see top designers still using the traditional artworking skills - fantastic work Joaquin.

    13 years ago

  • Thanks Gary, I like to see traditional techniques too. I drew these images during class to show beginning design students the tools and techniques they can immediately apply with traditional mediums. But, for my professional work I do use modern mediums.

    13 years ago

  • Just beautiful Joaquin! Oh, and the alfa that I was thinking of was the "Disco Volante" - check it out. http://www.supercars.net/Pics?viewCarPic=y&source=carGal&carID=31&pgID=1&pID=740505

    12 years ago

  • M. Allexander, I used Chartpack AD markers. I'm not much of a pure marker render. I keep the marker work minimal, just applying for reflections and shadow. Than I do main coloring with pastel. This is for shiny things like cars.

  • it just amazing... The concept and its presentation, both are superb. I would like to use the same perspective angle for one of my sketches...

    12 years ago

  • Thanks for your complements Roshan & Ajay: I can't take full credit. This was a class demo and I roughly based the design on my pupil Shamir Ballard's sketch. Ajay, its a vary simple view: 1 point perspective. I have the students do this simple view as a first step into other perspective angels.

    12 years ago

  • ''No. I was trying to emulate the 60s gentleman sports car driver.'' very very cool..so would you share with us, how you created such emotion on a quick sketch ?

    12 years ago

  • Alp, That era of gentleman driver of a lithe Italian or British sports car driving through the countryside is the romantic image of cars that I love so was a natural emotion to convey. I may not so quickly capture something that I don't hold dear.

    12 years ago

    12 years ago

  • Thanks for your interest Xiangang. This one is done on Too PM pad with AD markers pastels and color pencil. Than finished off with swash of Photoshop brush over the window and core line only to bring a bit more saturation to the pastel that's there already.

    12 years ago

  • 1] Lay down pencil sketch 2] ad marker start light, for reflections shadows and bit of interior detail 3] with knife scrape gray pastel dust onto the side & smooth out with cotton pad to modulate main body core form; repeat with cool color of sky reflection on upper body cores and with ground tone on lower body for ground reflection 4] with needed erasure bring out contour 5] finish off by defining details & cut-lines with color pencils 6] ad highlights with gouache or in this case PS.
