I decided to revisit ChoroQ to compare how much I have improved, and I really am happy with the results. I started out just scribbling and messing around in Paint Dot Net, a free image manipulation program that allows for basic image editing and drawing. And now, today, I'm drawing these artworks in Photoshop CC 2019, now that I can afford it. I'm so happy with how far I've come, and I've even prepared a really good comparison image:
I've incorporated new shading and lighting techniques over time, and my favourite has to be just selecting a round area and using a soft, white brush (see bonnet of latest drawing). I've spent my free time lately trying to do more, and decided to do two more vehicles to go with this van.
I still love drawing ChoroQ's and I've already gotten questions as to if commission these, or draw these for money. Summer job, maybe? Unrelated to this project itself but related to my improvement, I spent the later weekend drawing my Hot Wheels Chevy Lumina APV, with my character inside. I decided to try a simple background for it using reference pictures of an Arizona interstate, and I love how it came out.
