'65 Karmann Ghia by Boss429 '65 Karmann Ghia by Boss429
Forgive me, for it has been 12 months since my last drawing :)

Found pictures and a video of this '65 on the net and wanted to get it down in pencil. I've owned a '62 Ghia for a couple of years now and think they are such a great looking car.

A3 Bristol extra smooth paper.
H thru 9B pencils.
0.3-0.5mm mechanical pencils.
Putty eraser.
Cotton wool.

Oh my!
I like the composition with the car filling the picture plane at an interesting angle. The background gives the car a great context without distracting from the car.
Your proportions look great, and you did an excellent job on the foreshortening. You did a really nailed the lines and character of the Karmann Ghia.
You have a beautiful range of values here. And great display of technique in the use of value changes and transitions to show the planes and contours of the body.
What a gorgeous piece of automobile art!
It's a sterling piece of work! :clap:

Beautiful work and on Bristol as well! Soooo many hours of layering to build those dark values. You're an extremely patient person. My hat is off to you.:)
