The apple apparently didn't fall far from the tree. Ask your dad what age he quit drawing on his car (or maybe he still does, haha). Post a close up of the part to the left of the radio.

No, on your dash, just to the left of your radio "on" knob. The second pic in your original post. I'd post your thumbnail here, but can't figure out how.

I'm just in awe of your use of light and shadows in this part of the dash.

This is really cool, man! Although I'm sixteen and wouldn't dare confusing my art skills with my BMW (lol), this looks great! First E46 with the "BMW Individual" package?

If you can do this with a silver sharpie and piece of plastic, what can you do with oil, brush, and canvas?

I thought it was going to look stupid as hell until I saw the pics. I must say you are really talented. It's not something I'd do to my car, but it is really unique and pretty freakin cool!

Wow. Stick with it. Figure out how to get paid to do this, and you'll never have to work a day in your life.

While I do love drawing and art, if I was gonna go into something creative as a profession it would involve music. My dads the real artist in the family. I'm more into playing guitar as my passion and art as my hobby

Thanks! Its exactly like learning how to drive a manual. The first few times you will be cursing and screaming at how you can get it but then once you learn you will never forget and it becomes natural. Once you train your fingers to play, you will just keep progressing and never forget !
