I finally finished it! YAY! This is meant to be my entry to the KVIE Art Auction so I needed to have this done before this weekend so that I could turn it in. I'll be posting how the process was when I was working on this piece soon.

Über Cool!
I like the composition with the bus filling the page at an interesting angle. I really like the background that you have here. It gives the Microbus a nice context without distracting from the vehicle itself.
Your proportions are good, and you did a fine job on the extreme foreshortening. You did a really great job of capturing the lines and character of the VW Microbus.
You have a good range of values here with plenty of contrast. And good use of value changes and transitions to show the planes and contours of the body along with some great reflections.
It's a sterling piece of work! :clap:

I did my best to make it so that the vehicle was easily noticeable without making the colors muddy, which was difficult since the original color of the bus looks almost like a salmon color in the photo.

Yeah...i cannot remember now if that was salmon, or VW's version of coral. But either way, it is a difficult color for me as well. Keeps wanting to go pink on me! :wave:
