Sharpie Art n' Shadows by PinstripeChris Sharpie Art n' Shadows by PinstripeChris
Here's a quick piece I did last night in just under an hour for practice on 30"x15" paper. When I got home today and looked at it for a minute I thought I could make it a little bit better by adding some airbrushed drop shadows. A little airbrushing later and the piece is much more interesting :)

Thank you very much! The title "Sharpie Art" on most of my work literally means I use Sharpie markers to create these. I have had a TON of practice doing this type of artwork on many kinds of surfaces, such as 6 cars. I also have a background in traditional pinstriping and airbrushing. With that being said I can tell you that the faster you make your lines (with marker, airbrush or paintbrush), the cleaner and smoother they will come out. This whole piece was done in about an hour and is all done freehand and with no plan- I start in a random place with an idea and just build on it. This also helps with the speed which will help with the sharp lines. Still though, if you look closely you can see some imperfections :) but I feel this helps viewers to see its not a sticker, or a digital graphic. Lastly, the airbrushing was done with an Iwata Eclipse (not digitally) filled with a very transparent acrylic black so I could build up the shadow tone slowly and with more control. Careful placement of any shadow will make a difference in how something looks. If you have any other questions- feel free to ask!

Also, I have a time lapse of me doing one of these pieces on my website, here's a direct link:

The video is HD w/sound, so you can watch it full screen to see more :)
And there are videos/pics of the cars I've done as well

Thanks!
