Normally, I'm not a huge fan of modern large diameter alloy wheels on classic hot rods. BUT! This is art. Also, this is a rat rod. Individuality is one of the unifying features of the rat rod type.
Rat rod = someone tossed the rule book in the recycle bin.

Very true, I find that the large modern rims suite this Rat, and that they are black alloys make it even better. Chrome rims would have not looked that great - thanks for the look.

Yeah i was also gonna add that the whole drawing is sweet! How did you get your colored pencils to come of so smooth. I can't seem to get rid of the rough texture it leaves behind ,aye it's the surface or paper? Not sure haha thought I'd ask

Yip, texture of the paper does contribute to the smoothness of the pencil, on some spare paper try using some tissue or paper napkin to lightly rub over the colour pencil on the paper ( to blend ). Also if you use the colour shaving bits (from sharpening your pencil) with a paper napkin you'll get the same results

Okay sweet! I'm using Canson Marker Paper at the time. Should I try one on just a regular sheet of printer paper? I well try out those tips on the next few drawings. Thanks man!
