    Toned Car

    Toned Car

    A car I had to create for a manga I'm doing the art for. Screen toning is a pain in the arse, but it's very rewarding to see the printed product.

    Cool, reminds me a lot of Bubblegum Crisis

    My only critiques are the perspective, it looks a little skewed. Also the chrome texture needs a little work. For some inspiration take a look at Harald Belker's cars

    mostly good. Note that the hood etc. is significantly taller than the trunk's slope would imply. My point: the car would actually be leaned WAAAAAY back when driving.

    Also: pigeonpoop.

    great start

    Awesome. Thanks guys. It's my first time drawing a car so I'm aching for some detailed feedback.

    Threshold: I think I understand what you mean, but let me make sure. Are you saying that the hood on the car I've drawn is taller than the back slope, or that it should be?

    Thanks ^_^

    hi, i think its a really nice drawing for sure. my suggestions would be, to do something different with those wheels. they look like flowers at the moment, and are a bit distracting. maybe simplifying them.

    some of those highlights are looking like brushed metal. they are not the smooth,hot spot lights normally sceen on smooth metal surfaces.

    hmm, maybe its the lack of environmental reflectants?

    nice so far

    That's Screen Toning? It's not what I was expecting from the title. It looks more like it was coloured using a felt-tip pen. It's not that I'm saying you didn't use screen tone, it's just that that method of shading tends to lead to really dynamically shaded pieces - you REALLY have to think about where the shadows go. And this... isn't. The fact that you DID use the 'screen tone' method to shade it and it doesn't look like you did seems kind of, well, pointless. Work with your medium, not against it

    Theres some pretty solid linework here - bar some perspective issues - and some nice thick black lines that would take screen tone really well. If you REALLY did think about where the shadows were going, you'd put the shadow of the wheel arch on the wheels, which might solve Jabberwookie's crit too.

    Good start though, and you're chosen shading method is really good for doing chrome. You've just put the same tone more-or-less all over, which again sort of defeats the point.

    Push this one a bit further.

    Yeah, thanks man. It's really screen tone. I think the reason it can be mistaken is because you're looking at a shrunken digital version of it. Also, the tone in particular is dark and concentrated like a marker mark would be (which is common in Manga now-a-days). As far as the shading goes, I would be better off using gradient tones, but I only have flat tones. I got the darker shade by layering a second sheet over the tone.

    But yeah I'm just figuring out how to tone. This is my third time :p
