Some people especially men have a passion for cars. From childhood these men have a fascination for cars. They like to buy toy cars which resemble the original models and also they love to draw cars. But drawing cars may not be as easy as you think. Most people have the idea of a car on their head but when they try to sketch that out on paper they face many difficulties.
To draw a car first of all you need a drawing space (a table top which is plain and empty) and then you need a drawing paper, pencil and an eraser. If you do not have the picture of the car clearly in your head then you can take the help of a reference picture or the model of an original car in front of you as reference.
Then after having a thorough look at the model of the car, keep it aside and start drawing few lines trying to make the overall shape of the car. You do not have to go for the details at once, just the outer shape of the car will do. Do not try to start from somewhere and do the details of that part and then move to the next part. I can guarantee you that that process will totally hamper your drawing. With every art form, you first have to make the foundation and then slowly and step by step the details. So you should follow the same technique in case of drawing a car.
After drawing the lines you should go on to add different shapes like circles and rectangles that will represent the wheels and the doors and windows. Do not try to draw the wheels directly without drawing the shapes as that will only spoil your drawing. Though it may seem easy to draw the wheels, it is quite difficult.
After you have finished drawing the shapes you can now fill in the details. You draw the doors and windows, the door knobs, the headlights and stuff like that. Then you can start with the shading part. After that you should do the final detailing and touch ups. After that you car will be ready.
