    just thought id try a 3rd time since i got no comments.. this took about a month to do - pencils on foamcore. btw its being framed right now so its too late to fix anything :p
    i like the shine on the light at the top left probably best part of the picture.. on the rear axle differential (detail) i pushed in too hard with the brown pencil, as you can see it has pushed on to the foamcore, oh well, thx

    Interesting study, it looks like it took a lot of work.

    Might try illustration board someday, it will solve that pushing in problem.

    Also, for color pencils try mixing prismacolors and verithins on a smoother tooth illustration board. That combination and a gentle touch, will give ya those smooth gradations you are trying to achieve.

    wow, very in depth study of this car's mechanicals. You need to watch your ellipses a little -- I'm particularly noticing this in the rear differential.

    it would be neat to see technical illustrations like this if they were desiged with a strong overall composition.

    good stuff!

    That's cool. I could see my dad putting that in his garage, but only if it were GM or Chevy parts only.

    thanks r brown, bwkeough, bluemech, andres pad for your comments. yeah i did the drawing freehand without any tech drawing equipment so thats why some of the ovals are a bit off. the detail i was most annoyed with actually is the suspension (just above right of the car in the middle) where you can see the part through the tyre, i really shouldve shaded the whole tyre in it looks dodgy..
    btw what are prismacolours and verithins? - maybe you use different terms in america, like how what we call lead pencils (9B-9H) seems to be called graphite over there??

    Heya cfitzart,

    Here are examples of verithin and prisma soft lead. (the name just refers to the brand type)

    verithins
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

    prisma soft lead
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...121280010&rd=1


    The soft lead are excellent for shading and draw very smooth. They have a wide lead, so if you hold the pencil sideways (very lightly) you can get a very smooth gradation. The verithins are the hard leaded compliment to the prisma soft lead. Use verithins for outlines and fine detail work. Because they are harder, they do not need to be sharpened as often as the soft leads.

    I am sure there are similar products in your area. The reason I suggest them is that I can see some small strokes in your drawing. My thought is that if your going to devote that much time it might be worth it to get a pencil that can give you a softer gradation.
