How to Draw Cars: Things to Think About When Drawing Cool Cars

Aug 9, 2008
Learning how to draw cars isn't as difficult as you think it is. In fact, it's not difficult at all. All you need is a little practice, and a few pointers to get you going. With practice and the right guidelines anyone can master drawing cool cars. And as you're reading this article, I'm betting you want to learn how to draw cool cars.

Obviously, the first thing you need is a piece of paper. Next thing you need is a good pencil. Now it's important to know one thing. Awesome drawing supplies WILL NOT make you an awesome artist, though it doesn't hurt having a good pencil to work with. A good pencil, a piece of paper, plus a will to really get this down is all you need. Keep practicing every day, and keep everything you draw. After drawing for only 10 days, go back and look at your previous drawings. Studying them will give you the motivation you need to keep on going.

An important thing to think about is your enviroment where you're drawing. To draw at your best, you need to be comfortable where you're at. You also need a good surface to draw on. Whatever you do draw on, you have to make sure it doesn't wobble, and that it's level.

The actual drawing process is easy. Start out with the basic shape of the car. If it helps, draw squares and circels to help you out. You can always remove them later. Do not focus on the little details too early. That is a mistake most beginners make. If you made a square, start in the square with drawing the basic shape of the car. Don't be too hard with the pencil, as you might want to erase the lines and make everything perfect later. The best thing to to is probably to draw so that you barely see it, and make everything more visible later on. When doing that you won't have to start over when making a mistake.

When you have the basic shape of the car as you want it, you should work on the wheels. Should they stand out compared to the rest of the car? Should it be more subtle? Start out with a complete circle, and then remove the part that is under the car. When you have the basic shape of the wheel ready, go on to the next part. I'll say it again, save the details for later. You want to make everything to fit togheter, and you should have that clear before moving on to the details.

The lessons in this article should be clear; Do the basics first, be comfortable as you're drawing, use the right equipment.
