Using tonal variations of the background a textured brush is used to form the rear of the truck cab. Since the light source has been decided some is cast onto the ground and onto the wheel detail.
Having decided that this proposal needs even more attitude, some aggressive graphics are put in which will also contain the headlamps. Some more appropriately scaled wheels and arches are roughed in.
Taking a flat, textured custom brush more definition is added. A more solid shadow grounds the vehicle and helps decide on the direction of the primary light source. Black airbrush is applied on an overlay layer in the areas that will be dark from now on.
Some more volumes are added to the front and a colour overlay is added with pale yellow and blue. It is often useful to render your design as back-lit because this will produce strong highlights and reflections on the silhouette of the vehicle.
The idea for the main volume is quickly applied onto a gradient background. Starting with a full background gives a mid-tone which can be darkened and lightened gradually, giving more control. A couple of quick masks are used for glass and grille areas.
