Chevrolet Corvette Art – In 1961, the rear of the car was completely redesigned with the addition of a “duck tail” with four round lights. The light treatment would continue for all following model year Corvettes. In 1962, the Chevrolet 283 cu in (4.64 L) Small-Block was enlarged to 327 cu in (5.36 L) and produced a maximum of 340 bhp (250 kW), making it the fastest of the C1 generation. 1962 was also the last year for the wrap around windshield, solid rear axle, and convertible-only body style. The trunk lid and exposed headlamps did not reappear for many decades.
The car was designed by Larry Shinoda with major inspiration from a previous concept design called the “Q Corvette,” which was created by Peter Brock and Chuck Pohlmann under the styling direction of Bill Mitchell. Earlier, Mitchell had sponsored a car known as the “Mitchell Sting Ray” in 1959 because Chevrolet no longer participated in factory racing. This vehicle had the largest impact on the styling of this generation, although it had no top and did not give away what the final version of the C2 would look like. The third inspiration was a Mako Shark Mitchell had caught while deep-sea fishing.
Corvette chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov never liked the split rear window because it blocked rear vision, but Mitchell thought it to be a key part of the entire design. Maximum power for 1963 was 360 bhp (270 kW) and was raised to 375 bhp (280 kW) in 1964. Options included electronic ignition, the breakerless magnetic pulse-triggered Delcotronic first offered on some 1963 Pontiac models.
Chevrolet Corvette C6 Art by E_Serrano
Vectorization of a great Chevrolet Corvette C6 wallpaper. Made with Adobe Illustrator using gradient mesh and blendings. I tried to achieve a photorrealistic result, so I payed a lot of attention to every element. I worked on it around 5 hours a day during 7 days. Don’t miss the tiny details and the provided closeups.

1965 Corvette In Oil Art by Storm53
1965 Chevrolet Corvette In Oil
Oil paint on gessoed board, 18X24, 247 hours
I did a drawing of the car on a piece of watercolor paper to establish my values, and to help me really see the subject before i started to paint it. I pretty much worked from the background to foreground on this all the way through.
I think my proportions are okay. I am happy with my palette choices, and i have a full range of values here. I was also happy with the way the background turned out. I originally shot this car in front of a restaurant, and wanted to paint it on a beach in sunny southern California. So i used a beach panorama i took in Santa Monica, and used a 1966 Corvette reference shot i took to see how the car would look without a building behind it. It all came out okay.
My biggest complaint is the time it took. I was wanting to be within two hundred hours, and overshot by a whole week! I just gott’a get faster at this. My other complaint was all the paint i threw away. I cannot seem to mix small enough amounts of paint and waste a lot of it that way. And there are still things i need to shore up in my paintings. Still plenty of room to learn and improve.
Comments and criticisms always welcome!

I am mostly happy with this. I wanted large areas to practice transitions between value changes, and got a bit more than i bargained for. My tones are smotchy, and the transitions are not as smooth as i want them to be.
The good news is that my proportions are close, and i did okay with the foreshortening. I got some nice curves with a number of my value changes on the contours of the body.
So i got some things to improve on, but i am happy with my progress so far with this second serious car drawing.

1962 Corvette Sketch
Mechanical and ebony pencils on 11X18 Canson sketch paper, time: one baseball game
This sketch clearly shows the grid pattern that i use when starting a sketch. The grid helps me layout the sketch so i can make it fit the drawing paper just as i want it to, and also keep the major parts of the car in proper proportion. This grid is made of one inch squares, but half inch squares or smaller can be used to draw small parts such as the wheels to shore up proportions in any area of a drawing where high attention to detail is required. This grid was drawn darker than usual so you can see it. If you use a grid, you want it lighter and easier to erase. The lightly drawn grid is erased as i go, or sometimes i will erase it entirely after my contour drawing is done.
Just a fun sketch that i did last night while watching Adam Wainright of the St. Louis Cardinals pitch a complete game, two hit shutout against the Milwaukee Brewers. Cardinals won 8 to 0.

C8 Corvette ZR1 Concept by ProlificPen
The Auto Show came to Cleveland this year again, which is the next stop after the world famous Detroit auto show. All of the amazing car designs (and a few lack luster ones) inspired me to diversify my portfolio. While I have geared my designs in the past for a more fictional use for the entertainment industry, I decided it is not a huge leap for me to cross over into real world vehicle application. One of my career heroes, Syd Mead did both fictional and real world designs to great success after all, and my great grandfather worked for GM in the good old days.
Car design is an amazingly nuanced and technical art form, I found out the hard way after a lot of painful trial and error. For me to even attempt to accurately paint a car properly required a lot of research. It helps to have a love of motor sports and to know how certain types of cars work from a mechanical standpoint. Lots of variables to consider with painting cars too, complex reflective and translucent surfaces, three dimensional circles! Gaaah! I did not take any technical courses in art school on car design to make matters more tricky, but we did learn how to render them in my training as a sequential artist. This illustration was done completely without the use of any 3D modeling software. like all my vehicles drawings, I use carefully drawn isometric perspective guide lines in Photoshop with a wacom graphics tablet and drop them out of the image afterwords.
Why did I chose to take on the Chevy Corvette first? Because I love a challenge. The Corvette has always held a venerable, almost mythical status here in the USA, (with the exception of Ford fans) and even has garnered a respect from auto fans in other parts of the world since it’s introduction in 1953. While the weight of it’s name may have waxed and waned over the years from generation to generation, and gained lots of amazing competition from foreign made sports cars, it always sets out to do what it set out to do. Be a super car without the super car price tag!
The C7 Corvette is slated to be unveiled soon by Chevy, amidst a lot of speculation as to what it may look like and how it will be different from a technical standpoint to the C6. I don’t expect it to look nearly as eccentric as the one featured in the recent Transformers film. The auto industry has a tendency to play it safe in terms of visual design, so often concept cars are much more eccentric than the production models. I attempted to try and adapt to that tendency with this piece.
This is meant to be the C8 version, so the next generation after next years, and this is meant to be the sportier ZR1 version also. Some of the tech I had in mind was a mid to rear mounted engine, for better balance. wether or not it would be a gasoline engine or some alternative fuel source is anyone’s guess and will depend highly on the cost of fuel near the year 2020. The body of the car is covered by an adaptive organic light emitting diode matrix, which allows the driver to change the color of the car in real time from the door-to-door touch screen and voice controlled computer console. The headlights and tail lights appear to vanish into the body of the car when they are turned off due to a new material that only lets light out but not in and has the same surface qualities as the body of the car. The suspension, handling, gear shift, and vehicle stability assist are all controlled by advanced computer systems.
