Datsun 240 Z Mehta/Doughty 1971
This is a sketch of the Datsun (Nissan) 240 Z piloted by Mehta/Doughty at the 1971 Safari Rally.
It's very hard to get the proportions right when doing a perspective drawing of a car. So, I cheat a little by using a rolling ruler which enables me to transfer angles from the reference photo to my drawing paper and a proportional divider which enables me to transfer distances from the reference photo to my paper. Anybody that can sketch/draw without any tool whatsoever is a hero in my book and should be praised to no end.
