This is just a quick spaceship design for fun. They are themed off race cars.
AM Space Racer Aston Martin decides to join the space race
Final result after sitting and talking and painting for 2hrs
I start painting under the sketch. Place the sketch on the top layer on multiply. Then start painting under the sketch. I try to keep my sketch there so I can see the details still. then as I move along I start to eliminate the sketch.
I start to add in the dark and light values to define the different surfaces.
making the highlights stronger and darkening up the darker areas. Creating as much contrast as I can.
I start adding in reflections and to brighten up some of the race colors.
So this is the finished ship in all it's glory. I used Aston Martin race car photographs for reference to finish it up. That is partly why I put the British flag on it.
