nice start here. are these your own designs? and some crits. first do get a sketchpad or a proper sketchbook. they don't cost that much. and try to work on a bigger scale 'cos the more you zoom, the thicker the lines are and that gives the drawins a messy look. I also notice that you make the lines by first making them smoothly many times and then you try to form a one solid line (that also makes the lines messy). try to get away from that and make the lines more cleaner. it gives you confidence and a nicer look on your cars.
hope this is useful.
oh and you don't get too much sympathy if you have a deviantart link on your signature...
so drawdrawdrawdrawdraw and draw some more..

the designs are great. I'd love to see some color added. The graph paper hurts a lot of your pictures. I used to draw so much on line paper in school, but it really is better to just bring some cheap blank printer paper and draw on that.

Yeah.. Thanks for the comment
hmmm... i dont really like to color my sketches... always when i try.. they get pretty messy and they suck a LOT!
yea... a blank paper would make the difference but the thing is that usually im drawing these at the super booooring lessons at school.. and all i have where to draw.. is my notebook as you can see in some of those...
but hey!.,.. Thanks for the comment and the tips!

hey man. nice stuff. I was into drawing cars for a while also... n e way, as another person said before me, you should work on the cleanliness of your lines. one thing you could do which I did at first was draw it all sketchy and jaggedy till i got the form just how I liked it, then you can trace it with another peice of paper. trace only the lines needed. And you could continue the process till you have a bunch of layers and the car just how you like it. hope it helps....
FIRST SKETCHBOOK!!! TAKE A LOOK!!! or you will be poked in thine eye.

Very Cool sketches. But like EVERYBODY before said to you, Get some clean
paper and dont draw that small.. it gives a "messy" look.

Ill try to do better from now on...

Nice start, keep posting, but one thing, dont press that much on paper. Always draw lightly, its way easier and you can work much better on the lines.

welcome to CA. think your cars are a way to start, but i think you ned practice. they are rather rough and undefined, and as you get into the details, things get blotted from the graphite use. i know i know, there just sketches, but i perasonally would like to see the next step here. i suggest to take these designes of yours to ink, draw them at a much larger scale, and then do the detail. it would also be a good thing to considar some marker/color ink work and give of some flare. all in all, some interesting car designs.

Azieira: Hi! Thanks for the comment
hmm... i might try that.... hmm... but how do i resize them to a larger scale? my printer is broken now... and by hand those are very hard to re-draw...
oh well.... i think ill invent something...

i tried to be a little more clean on this one...
i like the design.. but im not so sure about the "where things are"-thingie.. i mean some part is in slightly different position that the one on the other side...

The Eagle and Classic 1 are some really nice designs. It's realy good to see the pics so big and clear now too. It'd be interesting to see orthographic views of some of these cars (IE front, side, top views). They would make some pretty sweet 3D models as well. Great work man, keep it up.
