Ferrari 458 Italia by Lmomjian Ferrari 458 Italia by Lmomjian
My website ---> www.facebook.com/pages/The-Art…

This drawing was an experiment for me.

My drawings typically take between 50 and 80 hours to complete.  As a young artist who is looking to sell his work, this is a problem because I cannot justify the kind of price for this amount of time.  My goal with this piece was to complete the drawing as fast as possible.  I finished this one in around 45 hours.

What's interesting is that the car only took around half the time - the rest was spent on the background.  In previous drawings I have drawn cars with a bland, showroom-style background (lmomjian.deviantart.com/art/Po…, but I am trying to move away from this simplicity and lack of interest.  Drawing a car is fine, but drawing it an environment gives the piece artistic quality.

To get the background, I took the car and transplanted it into a photo of a garage. Here are the two references I used:

I hope to sell this piece in the future.  If you are interested, let me know and I can give you a quote.

If it takes a very long time drawing backgrounds, can't you only draw backgrounds for a week or something so it becomes easy and then you can draw pictures a lot faster! 
Just an idea. I don't know if it works ^^'
