Car Commission (ink and colored pencil) – Completed!

I’ve been busy working on a commission over the last couple of months, and I just completed it. It’s a birthday present and represents the hobbies and interests of the recipient. The main features are two cars that the recipient has raced in the past and also two of his other hobbies. The drawing was done in pen and ink and colored pencil on Fabriano Artistico Extra White 140 lb hot press watercolor paper. The paper size was 12 X 18 inches and the drawing filled up most of that space.

It was a different sort of drawing for me to do and so it was fun to explore how to render the cars, include graphics for the hobbies and add color to the whole thing.

Now, onto a pen and ink house portrait – stay tuned!
