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.

As you can see Alan starts from a free-hand simple sketch that already has the right proportions, perspective, line quality and composition on the page. The wheels are very well done following the perspective.
What really is strong in this illustration is the control of its Focal Point (front wheel/hood/ground) with the light effect which is driving our attention to it first before admiring the rest of the illustration. Reading from left to right.
The balance between the light and shadow is perfect and the color treatment, too.
Today I would like to show one of my tutorial about how to use chalk and pastels to illustrate a car sketch, I tell everything in the video so….enjoy!
