Ironfoot: Very, very classy. Will be looking this one up, among a few others.

I just wanna resurrect this thread to give a solid “Thank you”. Almost 3 years ago I was browsing through the forum when the name of this thread caught my eye. Then the thought crossed my mind that I should draw a Vespa, or st least the logo, on an Etch A Sketch. That was exactly the little 🔥 I needed to pick up my all but forgotten artistic ambitions. Happy to say that I haven’t put the Etch a Sketch down since. In fact, I’m paying for my new (well, to me) 2015 GTS Super with the money from the sale of my 3 most recent drawings. (One of which was commissioned by Warner Music UK and purchased by none other than Muse’s Matt Bellamy- I’m having it sent off to the other side of the pond on Monday.) So again, thank you all for the inspiration to get my butt drawing again. Not to mention the quality of the work here is absolutely stunning.

And thank you for helping me fill one of my kids stockings. Will demand an etch-a-scooter from her to post.

This is a great thread with so many great sketches and drawings. Ironfoot, I’m assuming your are a professional illustrator/artist?

I'm aiming towards freelance illustration work, coming off the back of years as a general graphics worker. The stuff I've posted in this thread has mostly been exercises and personal projects. Some has evolved into merch for DoubleGood.co.uk

But the thread's open to all-comers: old hands and newbies and everyone inbetween. Variety is what makes it tick along, and we never get tired of looking at pictures of scooters, right?

Here's a couple I haven't posted here yet...

Nuns on scooters are still a thing:

ok, last one!

This is another portfolio piece. Beginning with a rough sketch, then re-drawing in vector art, and finally working over in traditional style lineart.



It became a badge at first. Focussing on just the rider and the handlebars...




More recently I got around to extending the main illustration. I finished up the scene in full linework, adding the scooter, road and landscape. Turned out pretty good.

”Pretty good” indeed!

Thanks! Sometimes I've been staring at these for so long it becomes difficult to get a fix on how well they turned out.

This one is quite recent. I'll get a better handle on it after I've left it alone for a while.
