Has anyone here heard of a luxury sports car named Aston Martian? Well, this vehicle came to my attention yesterday as I was looking through Yahoo News. There is a new line of 2012 Aston Martin’s that will be making headway soon. The Aston Martin was founded back in 1913 by two men, Robert Bamford, and Lionel Martin. The name of the car came from two concepts, the first being the name of a park that Lionel was familiar with called Aston Hill, and the second part of the vehicles name is of course the last name of Mr. Martin himself. When Lionel and Robert decided to go into business together they named their new company “Bamford & Martin”. Soon the two decided to start making their own cars and the first to be manufactured was the Aston Martin. The luxury car was developed by Lionel Martian himself and it was his idea to tale a four cylinder engine and put it in the body of a 1908 Isotta Fraschini. The very first Aston Martin came off the production line in March 1915. Unfortunately car production stopped because of WWI. Both men joined the service and everything was sold to Sopwith Aviation Company. Once the war was over Bramford & Martin started back up again and begun working right away. When Robert Bramford left in 1920, the company revamped and started producing the French Grand Prix. Domesticated Aston Martin’s that everyday people could enjoy started to be produced in 1950, and up to today there has been a total of eighteen different Aston Martin models that has been manufactured and they are; DB2 and DB2/4, DB Mark III, DB4/GT, DB4 GT Zagato, DB5, DB6, DBS and V8s, V8 Zagato, Virage/V8/Vantage, DB7/Vantage, DB7 Zagato, DB AR1, V12 Vanquish/S, DB9, V8/V12 Vantage, DBS V12, One-77, and Raptide. Of course there is also the 2011 and 2012 models that I still need to find names on, other than that, I think I said enough. I never told you that you would be learning "how to draw an Aston Martin", step by step. I think you will like this lesson because it’s on a car, and I haven’t done any tutorials lately based on a specific car. Thanks guys, and be sure to take your time and have a ruler and eraser handy before you even begin. As you draw out the Aston Martin I will ready more lessons that you can enjoy. Peace people!
