Developer Journal Day Forty

In the middle of the last prologue background. The inks are done and I need to flat and color it. For this last background I needed a bunch of cars in various poses at a bird’s eye view. I’m good at drawing a lot of inanimate objects, but cars were never one of them. No matter how much practice I do, cars always are my weakest renders. Finding reference images is always a pain because most of them are magazine shots or side views. If you’re looking for any angles besides that, good luck.

However I’ve found a cheap and easy solution to that. Matchbox cars. You can actually get a huge variety of vehicles besides racing cars and they’re easy to store. With some Hot Wheels and macro photography, you can actually do a lot for both comics and games by posing the cars exactly as you need them.
