Ford F100 Sketch

More marks on the page…

The subject of this sketch was previously featured as a  photography post.  Some of you may remember The Green and Grungy Monster that I published a few months ago.  At the time of posting the original photography, one of my longtime followers suggested that it would make a good drawing and I agreed.

So in an effort to try something different I sketched my favorite shot of this old pickup.  To me, the styling on the front of this truck is what makes it an interesting subject.

I must admit that sketching a man-made object, for me at least, is more difficult than sketching a portrait or a natural object.  In my opinon, a portrait or natural object can be more forgiving as far as geometry, symmetry, or straight lines are concerned.  When sketching an automobile or structure you have to be very aware of symmetry, perspective, etc.  If not, a sketch can turn to rubbish in a hurry!

I’ll stop rambling…and just present the sketch.

  1. Ha! Before I read the comments I was going to say that it reminded me of Christine even though it’s obviously a totally different vehicle.

    And yes, I remember the monster. As you know I’m a bit of a petrolhead, you’ve just reminded me to finish off a sketch which I’m basing on one of my earlier photos long before I tried drawing anything. Watch this space… 😉
