Porsche Drawing Tutorial by Michele Leonello

Car Sketch Tutorial by Michele Leonello

Dear friends,

today I have the pleasure to publish an excellent drawing tutorial done by designer & teacher Michele Leonello. The Porsche marker tutorial has everything right to show all the steps to start a good car sketch and end it up with some colors for a brilliant final result.

The first 3 drawings show the first 3 steps which are concentrated on : proportions, linework & tone value base (the light gray marker). It is the best way to block in the overall composition.

Now let’s see the last 3 and final drawings to discover the final result.

 

As you can see Michele added all value tones in Gray to show depth and volumes (surfaces), he also added the warm and cool values to show how surfaces turn to the light or in shadow, few extra details (tail lights and brakes) and some black to push the drawing in its contrast to make of it a punchy one.

At the end he refined the linework to make it crispy in some areas, final touch the white light spot with white guache on the glass which is also the focal point area.

I hope you enjoied it, now try to do it yourself and post on IG at #lucianobovereview I will give you a feedback.
