View Full Version : Harley Davidson Road King

This is my son-in-law's 1998 Harley Davidson Road King with ape hangers.

This drawing came out a lot better than I expected. This was done with pencil on white Cel. The paint and chrome was done with chalk then blurred with the palette knife. The chalk on Cel is like a mini super fast air brush that has a lot of control. The seat has a nice leather shine using this method with very little blur.

I used the ruler tool to measure dimensions and angles on a reference photo to hold a high precision (mechanical drawing method). All parts of this drawing were done freehand, except for ruler stencil tool for straight edges and the oval stencils used to establish the basic curves for the tires only.

White Cel is a must when doing fine lines and paint requiring sharp control. White Cel is 100% Opacity, 0% Metallic,0% Roughness, & 0% Grain Size.

The text feature of ArtRage works GREAT!!!!

Excellent work :) I use cell with chalk when I draw flowers, it is wonderful for blending and great for getting an opaque feel to petals :p:D
