Mercedes McLaren SLR - steps by Lizkay Mercedes McLaren SLR - steps by Lizkay
The steps behind my mixed media Mercedes McLaren SLR piece...

1. the sketch, done with 4H pencil on copy-paper
2. flat colors
3. grille, wheels and shading of the lights and the windows added
4. shading of the lacquer
5. lights and coloring of the sketch-lines done
6. light points, details and accents painted on, also fixed some other small details.
7. added two more color layers to make give the whole a mood of reflecting colors around the car.

... DONE

Photoshop CS2 + Cintiq

I usually get a few references before I start drawing. On the paper I start with lines for the perspective (which are still visible here) also lines that describe the most important parts of the car, front, windows, roof, other shapes etc. then I start to fill the gaps of these lines with the car's details which is what I use the references for ;)

:wave: hope that could help you a bit ;)
