Having said this, I quickly ramped up my ability to render automotive art. I see more chrome, reflections and other nuances within a car reflection than I ever have. Never imagined that I could produce chrome reflections through art. Thom does explain the principle fairly easy.
After my first 2 drawings, I actually had a request for a commissioned drawing!
This book is excellent, and the artist does a great job in it. This is a book for people with a back ground or at least an advanced level of understanding of what the book covers. The book says "how to draw cars like a pro", a lot of people think that means it goes from basic level drawing, to advanced level. No it starts out at pro level, just like the title suggest. That's not a bad thing, people like me don't think sometimes when we order books.
