Freehand Sketching a Mercedes

Freehand Sketching a Mercedes

This Freehand sketch of  a Mercedes was created using a somewhat “dry” sharpie marker.  The dry marker is not completely saturated so it allows you to sort of fade out your lines and have a more dynamic look to your drawings. Dynamism in sketching can be characterized in several ways from thick to thin lines, high contrast areas, or a forced perspective.

Hope you enjoy the demo and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Sketch Notes:

1.  Sharpie Marker(dry)
2.  Laser Paper
3.  Layout the proportions first using a 2.5 length Wheel Base. Be sure to project the ellipses out in space
4.  Work quickly using fast and quick strokes.
5.  Try to use some reference photos to get a feel for the Mercedes design
