Glad it helped@ULYSSES
Pity its not a Mercedes Benz AMG SLS.
I've got one of those that I had to make for Formula One (safety car) and you'd have been welcome to use it.

When I've done it I've used a template of the different flat elevations of the vehicle, either by downloading one or having to make one if there isn't one.
There are sites where you can purchase them but sometimes you can get them for free through the manufacturers site but that's mostly for vans.
Try searching "(Vehicle model), sign writers template".

I was recently working with a similar effect but with photoshop, there's many ways to get the same effect.
I used a plug-in called Engraver 3 which gives you that bank note look.
I had a very quick play with an image and I got something close and I think it's be closer with some noise added.
I just made the lines horizontal rather than wavy as there's pretty much infinite settings.
You can also image trace it in AI if you want vectors.
It's a paid for plug-in but there's some tut's on how to do it manually (I think on Chris Spooners blog). Try searching for "Bank Note, Spoon Blog" or "Photoshop, lines, video, effect"?

@pongo81 - sounds like a great gift and as @scotty was saying, even the new bamboo's are great value, the one I have at work, although I don't use it, is pretty good!
I just ordered a 13inch cintiq hd, should arrive in the next couple of days, I'm pretty excited as I never really got used to the idea of drawing whilst not being able to see directly where the pen is.

@scotty nice one, always good to see work in situ! I wonder what it feels like to be in a "fight team"...
A new one for me. It's the A-League Finals series, a couple of great games last weekend. What started as a sketch turned into an impromptu portrait.

haha @scotty aw come on, surely you don't get THAT much sunlight do you?
Nice work @birdbeak decent job after 7 hours!
I have been trying to learn abit of animation myself, like TRex, keen to know more about After Effects. I know you can animate in Photoshop, have had a go at doing simple things in that.
For my show and tell, another football player. Franck Ribéry.
Edit: Franck Ribéry Zombie / White Walker.. that is

@Scotty That was only the first 7 hours of the course - the next 7 hours are next Monday! It's pretty easy to learn, I reckon you'd kill it.
A big part of learning the programs is that they force you to use terrible tutorials with hideous assets. It helps when you've already got your own style that you can animate, like you have.
I'd highly advise NOT going outside. We had Ivan Millat, you've got Jack the Ripper - there's also other reasons not to go outside that I won't even get into.
