Car/truck illustration


Needle-chuck Ninja
Hey guys and girls I have a picture of a couple of trucks used for underground mining a friend wants me to paint. The background isn't a problem but am curious as to where to start with the trucks. Do I start by rendering the trucks with a darker colour (black or sepia ) then come back with colour ? This is the reference pic I have any help would be greatly appreciated
Yes, I'd get in the darks in place using a paynes grey or a sepia. Check out some of the WIP or SBS for cars or engines, there are a couple there.
That is going to pop right off his head when it is cleared. Very cool stonework and diggers...
