Classic Cars (UK), December 2006

“Regardless of whether you intend to have a go yourself, this 143-page softback helps you understand why the best motoring art is so captivating and why so much of it just doesn’t look right.”

“Whether you’re a notebook doodler who wants to develop some skills, an expert illustrator looking to take it to the next level, or someone who doesn’t even own a pencil but loves excellent hot rod illustrations, How to Draw Cars Like a Pro is your book.”

American Car World (UK), September 2006

“Cracking artwork in there, both of actual chopper designs and some cartoon stuff, which emphasizes the fun aspect.”

“A boon for every stylist and budding enthusiast.”

5.0 out of 5 stars My 11 y/o loves it July 17 2007
By Husam J. Alnajjar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 11 y/o son is into drawing and into cars, so naturaly he started drawing cars, but he needed some help. I for one don't know what to do (not an artist), so I got this book for him, and so far the drawings he brings me are soooo much better. They are as good as the ones in the book, but it sure did give him a few pointers here and there. He loves looking at the tips, and hints in the book. All in all it made a difference to his drawings.

This book has strong techniques for a good foundation in car art. It includes some great information from the right equipment to buy, to the proper presentation. The basics are all covered including perspective, proportions, and light reflections/shadows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Feb. 11 2013
By inlinesix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I haven't read many automotive art books, but I can safely say that this is probably one of the better or best ones out there. The art is very nice and the explanations by the author are very easy to read and understand. The book is also partitioned into logical sections. Definitely a must for any aspiring automotive designer or enthusiast.

Many good references and lots of step-by-step looks into drawing, shading, and drawing tires-wheels with a chrome effect.. Well worth the money spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book Nov. 30 2012
By TheArtist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is a good resource if you are looking to get into automotive art. I do wish there were more specific step by step examples by Thom. There were many examples of other artists and styles, just would have like more from Thom. There are two great examples where Thom shows the artist how to go from start to finish.

Having said this, I quickly ramped up my ability to render automotive art. I see more chrome, reflections and other nuances within a car reflection than I ever have. Never imagined that I could produce chrome reflections through art. Thom does explain the principle fairly easy.

After my first 2 drawings, I actually had a request for a commissioned drawing!
