How to Draw Cars

There may be many reasons why you would like to learn how to draw cars. For example, you want to give your car loving uncle an extraordinary birthday present by giving him a self-made car drawing, or you have to learn how to draw cars for your studies or work. Anyhow, you'll learn a few important steps in this article.

There are many varieties of cars you can draw. Learning how to draw cars can be fun and challenging for every level of artist. You start with a few basic shapes and color with crayon or pencil. What you want to do is to create the most detailed and accurate model-specific rendering of the car, and have it actually looking like a car. It is important hat you remember to use pencil on paper, and have an eraser handy to remove extra lines or marks later.

When learning you need to have a picture for reference. You can choose how to draw a car with different photographs but it certainly helps to have a point of reference, as imagination or memory will only help you so far. Use different pictures of cars and try to copy them. Do it again and again until you're happy, and start on another one.

To start out you only need to have a basic understanding of geometric shapes. With this little bit of knowledge and understanding you can easily learn how to draw a car of any make or model. Perhaps you want to draw a car that is shaped like a sedan. A sedan is a four-door passenger car that seats five people and features a nice, roomy trunk so learning to draw a car shaped like a sedan is typical. It is one of the easiest cars to draw when you are first starting out.

To learn how to draw cars like this you need to begin with a simple, long rectangle. Next, learn to draw a smaller rectangle on top of the long one for the car. Now, to learn to draw a car you can combine the two shapes by adding a long curving line over the rectangles using them as your guide. You have just learned to draw the top of the car. To learn how to draw cards of different styles or models of cars, you can adapt this line.

You might find it helpful to draw squares and lines to help you keep everything in the right dimension. For older cars a lesson is that these will be squares and rectangles with sharper edges. For newer cars the lesson is the shapes will be curved, rounded and angled more. Don't worry over perfect-looking lines at this point, the goal is to get the basic shape and proportion.

Once you have the basic sketch down you'll want to erase the helping lines, and get more into detail. Repeat these steps over and over to get better and better.
