Abstract:

Roaring into the mainstream consciousness with their rakish style and V-twin power, choppers have captured the public's fascination. Now, best-selling Motorbooks author and award-winning car designer Thom Taylor shows enthusiasts of all artistic levels how to draw these rolling heavy-metal sculptures, whether for fun or as concepts for their own dream bikes. After a brief history of the chopper, Taylor covers the selection of tools and equipment before explaining fundamentals like perspective, proportion, reflections, and shadows. With the building blocks for a successful drawing in place, Taylor goes on to selecting a color palette, finding your own technique, and adding people to your drawings. Also included are chapters on cartooning and the role computers can play in your art. In addition to Taylor's own work, How to Draw Choppers Like a Pro features art from several other well-known motorcycle artists-including Ed Newton, Dave Deal, Tom Fritz, and Keith Weesner-not to mention a foreword by the godfather of modern choppers, Arlen Ness.
