How to Draw Reflections on Car Sketches eBook

Reflections ebook

Reflections ebook

To know how to draw reflections on your car sketches & illustrations is very important. Many of you use markers and colored pencils to apply those black shapes on side windows and windshields, however many of you make several mistakes which are really visible. The secret is to understand how a reflection behaves on a surface.

Start always from Basic Shapes and study how objects placed around, those basic shapes, reflect into each one of them, there you will have the first answer about how a reflection will display itself on a given surface.

My latest eBook REFLECTIONS tries to help with simple explanations and tutorials thanks also to Hakan Saracoglu’s car sketches donated to make this ebook a better one.

( Hakan Design Director at Chery Motors and ex student of mine at Art Center Europe back in 1992.)

The reason I made an Ebook on Car Drawing Basic Rules

There are several excellent books on Car Design drawing and few excellent Car Sketching guides we can buy online or in a bookstore. The reason I decided, last year, to make mine and sell it on-line “Car Design Sketching Tips” was because I wanted to make a reference sketching guide just and strictly on Car Sketching Basics. Illustrate  the most important exercises for any beginner, showing simple perspectives and moving to theory of reflections to learn and understand how we can master (with a lot of exercises) those marker lines and nice effects to make a body car look shiny or opaque. In my Ebook you will not find hot shot illustrations, you will find the A – B – C to start sketching cars correctly. It is made to help you when preparing for a design school entry portfolio interview, it can be of help during school, too.

My Ebook is short  because reduced to the essential and most of all to contain its price which is really cheap considering average prices on this type of subject. It must be cheap because many people contact me from countries with economical difficulties.
