Nice! Love the bold lines in the black & yellow one.

Drawn with a tablet and stylus, maybe?
Yup. I used an old iPad and a fat, squishy-tipped stylus. I had to guess where the lines were going to be because it was so inaccurate. Fun though.

Made this over the last couple of days. Drawn in Illustrator with the pen and pencil tools, mostly using the mouse and keyboard, but also a little bit of Wacom tablet to block in the solid areas.

Love these old minibikes! This one is a '70s Suzuki.

This drawing is based on one of VESPAsfw3's amazing photos in another thread. Do you ride in the Winter?
The one one image struck me as very funny. VESPAsfw3 I hope it is okay that I used it as a reference.

Is that a graveyard beyond the fence? What a location for emergency repairs. Did you reanimate the scooter?

Thanks for the response guys. I am glad you all found it funny too. I don't draw that much, and while I do some leatherwork now and again, I don't make t-shirts so feel free to run with that idea.

@Ironworks your art is amazing in this thread, and "Vespa in repose" is a great way to put it.

yes it's a graveyard, one of only two and a half left in San Francisco. The shot was done as part of Bay Area: Scooter Photo Tag?

no scooter was harmed, just rested on it's side and zone system applied (as best it can with a small digital camera)

Ha, a new sub-genre of scooter art emerges! I would've bailed on drawing the underside of those fallen scooters - it's the hardest part to draw.

Scooters on their sides, scooters in ditches, scooters at graveyards. Portents of worse to come.

Where does it all lead I wonder?

I think they are kinda fun. Honestly, the hard part has been trying to figure out how to transition the colours to make shadows that look okay. The program on my iPad isn't very intuitive, but it was free so no complaints. I have been running them past my wife when trying to give them a personality with just a line or two.
Feels like I fell on it.

It is just called ArtStudio. My iOS can't update anymore, because my iPad, is old, but I can still run this one.

Edit:ArtStudio for iPad: draw and paint.

The opposite, I think.

Since making that sketch I've worked it through some more. It's almost done and I'll post it up later.

Be careful where you park a scooter, is all I'm saying.
