Hello all

My brother spends alot of his free time drawing old F1 cars.

I think his quite good ....also spends at least 20 hours for each drawing.

I have his Ferrari 312 driven by Chris Amon here.......took him 50!! hours to draw it.

Very atmospheric, he's certainly talented. It's always nice to see good drawings rather than the usual photorealistic airbrush paintings!

A nice pencil study.
As a motorsport artist myself, I can vouch how tricky it is to get those spaghetti exhausts looking right!

Excellent sketch. Is that the 1967 car (V12 - 0003 or 0005)?

Welcome aboard, Klem! :clap: At least I'm not the lone Slovenian around here any more. :wave: :wave:

Magee: it is Chris Amon's Ferrari 312 from 1967 Monaco GP. Don't have an idea on SN though.

Beautiful! I like the shadowing and as mentioned earlier the exhausts. Can we see more examples?

Tnx for compliments... :blush:

Byrkus.....hello how are you......nice to hear from you :) ........this guy is
unbeliveable ...you show him a drawnig with only car on it and he tells you
in which race was it participating,where was pic taken,on what position was the car etc
......unbeliveable...

Andrew...yeah it was a lot of work for him...some erasing took place
till things looked OK.

Two more photos of Ferrari (i have no idea what chassis is it but everything
else Byrkus told)

That's really nice, Klem.
Thanks for sharing it with us!

(It's photographed under glass, isn't it? It took me quite a while to work out what the slightly surreal reflections were! Actually, it's faintly sinister until you realize what's going on!)

Yep....I was lazy and didnt bother taking the frames away so there is a little reflection.

This is his newest drawing Honda RA301 with John Surtess. Its big A3 size and one
that is he most proud of. Maybe someone could guess which race was this
car participating.

1968 Italian Grand Prix, prior to the famous accident with Amon.

I do hope there are some more - they're very good. :wave:

Here is another one of his collection. The famous Lotus49 with Jim Clark behind the whell.
If you look closely you can see a spark in his eyes :) Take a look at the details....

40 hours were spent on this drawing. Its 45x30 cm big.

Your Brother is an artist!

I hope he is preparing The Gilles Villeneuve and Airton Senna cars.

It'll be very exciting to see Airton and Gilles in these type of beautifull pictures

Thanks a lot to share them with us

Ciao from Italy

Drawings are even better looking on bigger scans...I have 8000x5000 scans of most of them...there you can see real details.....down part is they take soooo much time to do.

Villenueves Ferrari will be 60x40 size...that is only the car. He has a very detailed pic of the car so he can make each screw exactly as it was in real...but it will take 50hours min...

Here are some of his draws

some nice work. very nice actually. well well well above the usual standard that people seem happy to buy anyway. these would make great great prints. i imagine you could find ways to sell a lot of these. but sell schmell, they're just nice pictures. i'll risk being a pain in the arse and say i'd be interested in seeing more pictures in the future and seeing if he stretches things a bit, uses artistic license etc etc etc. what's there now is a fantastic base to start from. great pictures, thanks for sharing!

That are some very motivating words...tnx mate! Atm I dont really concetrate on selling prints. There is much thing still do....mostly some more great draws. Senna 1990 Mclaren in Monaco, Vilnueve 1979 overhead in Monaco,Ickx 1971 Ferrari will be drawn in next few months....all of them with even higher level of details then so far...

Btw...Im looking for highly detailed pictures and scans of any great historic F1 cars.

If anyone has great material and could share it with me I would appreciate alot.

Klem,

does your brother use only various coloured pencils for his great drawings? Or some other tools as well (coal comes to mind for monochrome drawings....)?
