How to draw a car, tutorial by Fabio Ferrante
sometime ago I asked a good friend of mine to prepare a cool drawing tutorial for my posts on my blog and here on Hubpages...with surprise yesterday Fabio Ferrante (an Italian young designer) sent me an email with his tutorial made for me and I am happy to publish it for you hoping that it can be of help.
This is a 9 steps tutorial about how to draw and illustrate a car from 3/4 rear top perspective, 9 steps you should see with attention to understand them and try to replicate to exercise at home (you could save the images or print them to work by free hand...).
The milestones are :
-good perspective and wheels ellipses
-good reflections lines that we will color later
-good quality in applying the color (the blue) and mixing it with the white for volume shaping
-good shadows and well set background (gives value to your illustrated car)
-good highlights for shiny and focal point effect
So here we go with the final step 9 in which we can see the final illustration, Fabio at the end got a good rendering with a nice background and a punchy car shadow. The overall result is pretty good, I find some details really well done such as the wheels and rims or the side body sections.
I hope that you liked it and that it can put you in the mood to try your design in the same perspective.
