Mercedes 190 SL by DominikScherrer Mercedes 190 SL by DominikScherrer
This drawing was a commission the car is a '62 Mercedes Benz 190 SL.
Done with markers, pastels, colored pencils and white gouache on A4 bristol smooth pad. The drawing was pretty hard to do because first I had a few problems to get the proportions right and it also was a challenge to draw the silver paint. 
But now I am really happy with the result.

Very cool. I like the style you did this in. It really makes it feel like traditional work from the 60's - 70's too. Very well done!

Very good! I like how you used cool and warm colors to color the car silver. Far too often, I see people draw silver cars using only shades of grey. I also like the slight exaggeration of varios parts of the car. This drawing is both photorealistic yet original, and That's what I like to see. Awesome job, and keep more drawings coming! :D

I really love the look of this!  I :heart: your technique.  Can you answer a couple questions??  Did you use copic markers?  Also, what brand of colored pencil do you use and where in the drawing did you use it -- to help blend the marker?  The shadow under the car?  I'm asking bc I'd love to be able to work with colored pencil and marker together in this way but I have no idea how to begin :/  Thanks!!!

Hey A. first I want to thank you for you nice feedback!
Now to your questions: I use shinhan thouch markers they are not as expensive as copics but I guess they are as good to use as them (i've never used copics so I can't really tell...). The brands of colored pencils I use are koh i noor polycolors and faber castell polychromos; for this piece I used the former ones. The colored pencils were just used for a few strokes for example little chrome indications at the wheels or so. 
The pastels took over a bigger part of the whole drawing. I used them for the chrome indications, for the windshield and also for making the colors of the paint smoother and blending the marker work. I hope I could help you but if you have further questions don't hesitate to contact me! 
Cheers
Dominik

Thanks so much for the detailed answer.  I look forward to trying some of your methods eventually.  Especially the pastels, I've never used them before and I would never think of using them to help "blend" marker...it's a great idea.  Thanks again :hug:
