    thanks, i think it looks better in real life, i had to take a pic of the drawing( dont have a scanner) so it always looks a bit strange on computers.

    You truly know how to play with the light-effects. What do you use? Just pencil?

    There is something to be said for some details in the overall shape, but like you said, thats probably down to the pic being a photo, not the actual drawing.

    I suspect with al the PM´s you´ll be getting, you´ll be able to buy your very own Ferrari soon.

    PS.
    Do you do colour?

    Lukas, I love your style and how you render the cars, and how you draw backgrounds which I never do. The only problem is the front wheel as mentioned before which was probably just from the camera.
    Here is an Enzo I drew a few weeks back. I can never great a good photo of my pictures either, but this is the best I could get

    Nice!

    Just add a little more contrast round the frontwheel.

    Thanks everyone.
    Lukas, it took me a few hours each day for around a week. It looks much more detailed and darker in person. I made sure it looked really good because Im giving it to an actual Enzo owner

    Never in a million years... i occasionally try my hand at people but it comes nowhere close to the level of difficulty that drawing cars is on... and don't ever let anyone tell you different... College grant applications, calculus and drawing cars are the three hardest things in the world... and i think i could deal with the first two... You have some seriously solid talent... i hope you're in an art school or do something professionally, related to art...

    Yeah, the basic outline is the hardest, but after that figuring out where to shade is easier.

    NNO- You should atleast TRY to draw one. I saw the portrait you did of Mr. Ferrari and it looked excellent

    Very good Lukas.

    If I were to be very critical, I'd say the background lets it down (the car iis truly superb.

    I'd probably have been inclined to leave the background pure white with just shading under the car.

    Great picture though.

    IMO, the background shouldnt be as good as the car since the main focus is the car

    Being that i've taken many an NNO picture and erased EVERYTHING save the background, i think the background on this works... The whole picture looks realistic given the background... The car is not cartoonish or unrealistic, but it's in a very unusual background; that's the first thing that brings out the car... The second is the the difference in textures - the car being metal and glass and plastic and the mountains being igneous metamorphic and sedimentary :) ... Anyway, Lukas did such a good job in showing the difference between the texture of the car and texture of the background with his shading that the picture looks like a carbon copy rendering of an actual photo... Very impressive...


    ETW, i HAVE tried to draw cars... LOL... Many times... The last two i tried to draw were an NNO and 0808 - Jim Spiro's 1960's 330 TRI/LM... No dice... Oh, and i've tried to draw a car in the background of a picture of Enzo, himself, but to no avail... i literally couldn't draw a car to save my life... :)

    ...of course, the BIGGER problem Lukas could run into is if an NNO decides to pull up next to the car he's rendered... :)

    ...ok, ok, maybe the color of the NNO next to the black and white Boxer is unfair - the NNO has the obvious advantage just because it's an NNO...! :D So let's take away the color and make it fair... :)
