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
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
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.

Creating the feeling of emotion and movement in your work is a key
element to getting your designs chosen. In this tutorial Miles shows us his
methods for creating a loose, dynamic fine art style to his drawings.
