Inktober - Day 2

Yesterday's Inktober prompt was noisy. Firetrucks can be noisy. How hard can it be to draw a firetruck. Turns out it's a lot more complicated than I realized. I found a how-to here. Here's what the truck should look like.



And here's my crack at it. It's the first time I've drawn anything with guidelines and didn't know I was supposed to erase them so they are kind of dark. I should have used a straight-edge or ruler. Lines that don't shake are tough. I get why it helps to understand how a firetruck is put together to make the drawing process more understandable. Why does that line go there? Oh yeah, that metal supports this ladder. I think guidelines will help next time I take on something like the NASCAR car from day 1.

Thanks, I think some of what I learned here would have worked for the first car. I like this challenge.

Your version looks more firetrucky than the neat prototype, I think -- sort of lived-in.

It's done some work...and maybe needs a bit too. I think the ladders on mine look like something out of an Escher picture though. 8-)

You are givng yourself some tough challenges here! I actually like that you did it freehand, I think it gives it more character.

This was way harder than I thought it would be going into it. Seeing how they got the wheels to line up was pretty cool though.

Ohhh well done! This was always something I struggled with; neat and tidy straight lines when hand drawing!

They are something to work on. Maybe though they don't matter so much. I'll have to try some more pictures like this and see how they go.
