okay, the series 6 touring has actually been out since march 2004, but i was expirimenting with pen and decided to draw the 645 touring (a shannon series 6 wagon with a V8 engine, in other words), since i don't have any good drawings of that car. so anyway, this is my first time doing a "good" (aka not a doodle in school, which is rarely done in pencil) car drawing in pen, and i'm satisfied with the results. the drawing ended up looking alot like ones domino has drawn, which was accidental but good i suppose, seeing as he's a brilliant artist (his Vision CL drawing <I>was</I> my inspiration for the background, though). also, there's a water smudge/stain/something right under the bottom-right corner of the right half of the grille, and i'm not entirely sure how it got there, but i know it's not a shading screw-up. anyway, here you are:<p><IMG SRC="http://img336.imageshack.us/img336/6867/shannon645touring4na.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

SV, I love your drawings, they have such a nice style! The work on the shading is impressive, and proportions are spot on. You have improved a huge amount. Please keep them coming! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I'd like to see a sketch in a little different angle though, but this is fine too <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

thanks for the comments <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/banana.gif" BORDER="0"> and i have a question: how do you shrink a picture after you scan it on microsoft paint without lowering the resolution, or is it even possible? because i scanned this drawing at 200 dpi, but when i shrank it in paint and saved it, microsoft paint automatically lowers the resolution to the 96 dpi you see here, which, believe me, looks alot worse. is there any other way to shrink a picture without lowering the resolution? i've tried shirnking it with the scanning program, which just makes it blurry, and paint shop pro doesn't let me shrink it anymore.

I can't say I'm familiar with resizing in Paint. Usually I just resize my images through photoshop, though it does seem that you should be able to scan it at a smaller size... usually it asks what size (25%, 50%, 100%, 150%, etc...) you want to scan the image... is that what you tried? Through the scanning utility it shouldn't come out blurry, especially if there's a function to choose the resolution. <p>I dunno, that probably doesn't help, but I'm not great with computers, myself... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0">

SV, I meant you can send them in NEXT time before you post because I could've taken this pic from this thread, But it's ok. As I didn't know what size you wanted it, I did it 900 wide, but I've got a 1024 width version too and if you wanted it smaller, just tell me the size and I'll fix it for you. Anyway here's the 900 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img116.imageshack.us/img116/9858/shannon645bysv9002rz.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>Remember whenever you need me to resize a pic for you, don't hesitate to email me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

the side looks lifted off a 5er, and the windshield is too big.<p>but i love the way you make your drawings so lifelike, the shading impressive.

thanks for the compliments/crits <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> knihc: do you mean the windshield is too wide or too tall? i think it's both; i was mainly expirementing with new sketching techniques and wasn't really paying too much attention to perspective, but after i finished i realized i made the A-pillar way too thin and the windshield seems too tall as well (it seems like i do that alot, doesn't it?). i was a little inspired by the 5er when i drew the original side view drawing (of the sedan, the wagon is about 6 months newer) two years ago, but mainly with the crease along the side; i didn't mean to copy or anything. anyway, thanks for the comments knihc and hornbag, and the size is fine superfresa <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0">

i think it is too wide, as if the windshield were slanted towards the left.<p>and, yes, the side creases were what reminded me of the 5er, coupled with very 5er door handles :)

the windshield is supposed to be a little narrower than the front. it's further back than the front is so, perspective wise, it should be smaller.<p>also, the windshield is also slightly curved, so that cuts length a bit too.

Hey bro. Once again, you have awesome design skills. Maybe you could design a car for me. I really like your artwork, alot. It looks like you put an awesome amount of time into your drawings. They really do look flawless.
