Here's another not-quite-new one that I just redid, an old one of Doc that definitely needed revising:

Whoah, very, very excellent work there lennonluvr. You have an impeccable talent for light and shading, keep up the good work! You should try to do a sunset or something, kinda like that paradise falls concept art for Up with the gang standing together on a rock in front of the falls. Could be Cars related too, with Lightning and Sally. I think you could really pull off a pic with some great lighting.

How long did that take you to draw? I'm gonna guess 8 hours or so

That drawing of Doc is 'Hudson Hornet Fabulous'! You must have had a lot of practice! Did you take art classes or was it mostly self-learnt? Cos' the lines, the reflective details (like the chrome bumpers, hubcaps, headlights, body panels), smudging, shading, everything is amazing. Very professional.

I'll have a look at your other work, I think you're a really talented Cars fan artist.

That's my favourite concept art I've seen so far. :)

Thank you muchly everybody!

ffdude- My main focus here was just redoing what I had done before, hence, no background. It took me about 6 hours, maybe 7.

driveintheatre- I took art classes for 4 years in high school and I took a drawing class in college, but I'll tell ya, I learned the most actually from this "How to draw real people" book i have. Sometimes those books dont really do much, but this one was very helpful. So I took what I learned from that book and just applied it to every piece of realism I do.

I remember the original one of the recently updated Doc piece, and I have to say that you've made some great improvements! The shading, as others have said, is great and it truly does look just like him. The only constructive criticism I can offer is that the wheel that's turned and facing outwards in the centre of the piece doesn't look perfectly round, as though it has a kink, but that's a tiny detail and everything else is perfect. Great work, lennonluvr9! :D

really? *looks* yeah I see it now that it's been pointed out to me :wink: I'm not a big fan of that wheel either to be honest. Not cuz of the shape, but I dont like the way I shaded it. But as long as I dont focus on that and look at the drawing as a whole, it looks okay to me. :) I sometimes have a tendency to just look at my mistakes.

Quite ironic, really, that the greatest teacher was a silent one. :lol: May I have the name of author and a possible cover image? Sounds interesting to me. :)

yeah my actual art teachers were not always the most helpful or encouraging people I've dealt with.

I found on Amazon the exact book I have (I wasnt sure if I still had it or not! I havent looked at it in years...):
http://www.amazon.com/Draw-Real-People-Discover-Drawing/dp/0891346570/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1249827580&sr=1-1

Of course I've adapted some of the author's instructions to better suit my style and needs, but the basic ideas I mainly got from this.

Done a Pixar one for the first time in months. Another Doc Hudson. :) This was of a scene I always had been wanting to draw, but I only got around to doing it now:

Turn Right to go Left

This one is another re-do that I probably should have done last year. In any case, here's 'the new, improved, Lightning McQueen':
