EDM Challenge #32 - Draw something metallic

Sam bought this at either an auction or a garage sale...I am not sure which. I think he intends to sell it on ebay...but it's not my kind of thing and I personally don't really care for it. It is a junk sculpture...I can tell the wheels are parts of pipes...the rest of it I am not sure about. The numbers have been etched into the metal with some kind of tool...very rough. I drew it with a very soft pencil...it's what I had on hand, and I don't like how it came out on this paper. The drawing looks very fuzzy to me. It was hard to get even tones when I was laying in the values because of the texture of the paper. I added in the rusty areas with my waterbrush and watercolor paint. Don't you think the figure in the car is kind of scary looking?

I think Arty is right--you captured the mood. Yup that driver is kind of creepy!

I like, I like very much this old aspect, of the passage of time.

You don't like it?! Wow..I love the softness of the line and the overall quality of the drawing! The driver is a little creepy, but I think that's overshadowed by the beautiful way you captured the subject!

I like the "texture" of the piece along with the drawing, Julie. Nice.
