So is it best to draw the different shaded lines up to each other, and blend or to leave a bit of a gap to blend them? Hope that sentence made sense.. it did in my brain, but doesn't seem to make sense in words!
no blend them, and be smooth with them...
start with some boxes in perspective for practice....

I'll get to work on some renderings as soon as I get those prismacolors.

As far as markers wise - prismacolor is definitely the cheapest. Certain grays seem to have jumps between percentages. Other markers include Chartpack which seems to have a warmer color scheme even in cool grays. My favorite is definitely Copic, which is pricey but the best in my opinion.

Copics are 4-5 Dollars US depending on where you get it. If you buy online and do decide to buy a set, my suggestion is to get the 72C set for colors and the 12 set for Grayscale which includes refills.

I disagree with your idea to use grays before color.

Everyone who loves art usually knows how to shade accordingly...

If he's looking for some good effects, buy a cheap pack of Crayola watercolor markers, and some thick industrial carboard, and just test out there effects using water and a paint brush. The blend is simple and extremely effective.

I don't post alot of color on here, but you can see in this picture that watercolor markers can create a beautiful effect:

This was a sketch I was working on.



The style is up to date, and certainly looks professional.

Go for something like this, and guaranteed you'll love it.

Steve.

I disagree with this completely, not everyone that loves art can shade "accordingly", you may see how to shade but that doesn't mean you know how to shade...

Markers take time to get use to,

I've been told many times, by artists, industrial design students and professionals alike to use grays before jumping into bright vivid colors...

I don't know about water colors, but IMO if your just starting out coloring, use markers before moving to any other medium (that includes water color which itself is very tricky to use)

A good artist can do these things naturally. To be a car designer one needs to be artistically gifted. Its just jow it is. Some take a few minutes to et something right, others take years. Your either able to do it easily or you find it difficult. Now i dont think you need to start with grays, whats the difference? Is it maybe just percieved that color is harder than grayscale. I went straight into colour. That Mazda RX-Nagare was the first proper marker sketch I have done and I started with colour. Didnt turn out bad at all.
