Learning How To Draw Cars

By Owen Jones

Do you like drawing or painting? If so, have you ever thought around drawing or painting cars? You might even get able to create some money out of it. Young drivers love their first car and older drivers love their flashy cars. You could sketch their cars but sell the sketches to them or offer to make a painting from your sketch.

The good thing around drawing cars is that when they are still, they are perfectly still but they do not change their outline or colour like humans transform their expressions, stances and clothes. In fact, it would get pretty simple to compile a collection of sketches of fairly exotic cars too - cars that most crowd could never even hope to own.

So, how would you go about doing that? Well, the first thing to do is make a decision which sort of cars or vehicles you want to draw. That normally equates to the kind of cars that you find beautiful. You might like vintage, classic, sports or racing cars. Or drag or Formula One or luxury cars or any other type.

Granted some of these sorts of cars are not easy to see unless you live in a big city, yet you may find a manner around that. You may become able to produce some fantastic drawings from decent photos, videos, manufacturers' advertisements or Internet promotions.

The thing that you have to do, by whichever means you have accessible to you, is familiarize yourself with your issue. Merely as early painters used to become involved with autopsies in order to understand the underlying bone and muscle structure, so ought to the aspirant drawer of cars study the basic structure of cars.

All cars are basically the same, just as all humans are in essence the same, yet every body is different and every make of car is different as well. Begin with the general and work your way towards the precise. In other words, familiarize yourself with the fundamentals of cars and then the particulars of the model that you want to draw.

If you are already an experienced sketcher, I do not want to tell you how to suck eggs, but if you are just starting out, I would like to give you some tips.

Make your initial sketches fairly simple. Begin by drawing fundamental shapes: most cars are oblong with squarish side windows and oval front and back windows. Once you have a basic shape, you can start trying to add some details.

Do not become worried around going more than your initial lines in order to create the shapes more realistic. When you start, your car might look as if it is emerging from a fog, and the next time you draw a car, the lines will be better yet more accurate from the begin.

The key thing is not to become worried about making mistakes and only listen to critics who have tried drawing themselves.
