Icarus was a test pilot


I forgot about Inktober until I saw amberdreams' post about it. I like the prompts. Last year, I found something for Drawloween so everything was monsters and pumpkins. These look like there's a chance to branch out a little further.

Here's the prompt list.

Today's prompt was Fast. I'm still getting the hang of perspective and drawing from a reference so I snagged a photo of a race car for some practice. When I was in high school in the mid-80s, I liked to watch NASCAR racing on TV, mostly because I wanted to get in a fast car and head out for places unknown. I haven't kept up with NASCAR for quite a few years and most of the guys who were driving then are long since retired. There were a couple of drivers I liked just because of their names. One was Cale Yarborough. Here's one of his cars from back then.

Here's my attempt to draw it. I've got a long way to go but it was fun. It's amazing what you notice when you are trying to draw from a reference. Cars were so boxy and square back then. I love the planning on the placement of the Hardee's logo. Our town was small enough that Hardee's was the only fast food for miles around until I was almost done with high school and our town got a McDonald's and a Burger King.
