A step by step tutorial for doing it the easy way.

This guide will also help you to develop those same car drawing skills, into any area you wish, not just to learn how to draw cars.

You can learn how to draw cars easy and accurately every time, getting positive results. Using these simple but effective methods of car drawing, you can get started right away, with your best foot forward.

You can get started without having to go through the tough love method of learning. All car drawing is about seeing and the methods on this page will teach you how to see This will be without the struggling that comes from trying to do too many tasks at the same time. Lets be fair, it can be hard enough anyway. Even if you know what you are doing it is still hard enough so lrts not make it harder.

Some basics about how to draw cars that you need to know if you don't already.

Talented artists.

  • The one thing shared by all so called talented artists is, a strong desire to want to draw.
  • To become good at drawing cars you need a strong desire to draw cars.
  • Making good drawings of cars, that are recognized as being good, is important.
  • The importance of making good drawings, is that it keeps you motivated, with a desire to draw more cars.
  • Below you will find all the tools to help you make good drawings of cars.


How to draw a car step by step.


  1. Learn to get your basic construction drawing accurate and you cars will always look good.
  2. Learn by starting with the most important part of any good car drawing, which is the basic construction.
  3. Try to only do your shading when you are sure the construction drawings of your cars are good.
  4. In almost every case draw lightly to build up your darker areas, from lightest to darkest, white to black is always best practice when learning how to draw cars.

Cheating.

Drawing cars is not an easy task that can be even more difficult if you are not sure what you are doing or what you are supposed to be doing. I am going to give you the building blocks you need to get started and put you on a good solid foundation for your future drawing projects. Cars are difficult to draw because they are liner and geometric, when designers do the finished drawings for cars they use very sophisticated design software on computers because every aspect needs to be exact.

Even before the advent of computer technology cars were drawn by people known as draftspeople, who produced a type of drawing known as a technical drawing. In these types of drawings every aspect of the drawing is created though measurement and calculation using geometry Technical drawing is geometry and as much about mathematics as it is about drawing, in fact it is more about mathematics than it is about drawing. That’s why I never had much of an interest in it as a budding artist. How wrong was I because later on in life I realized all drawing is technical and about measurement but that is another story for another day?

In order to make the task of drawing cars accessible to anyone without having to be a draftsperson or serious mathematician I am going to do this the easy way?

First let me tell you why I think I am qualified to give you this information.

I have been drawing for over 40 years and to a high standard for at least 30 years, I have academic qualifications in art and design, diplomas and degrees, I also have a qualification in teaching higher and further education as well as 14 years experience in working with groups as an educator and enabler. I have completed much work as an artist in the community where I live and sold most of my work in the process. Further to this I am very disappointed at the poor information people are passing off as valuable, just so they can squeeze a few pennies out of others, my information is good, reliable, practical and free, please enjoy.

The simplest easiest way to draw cars is to trace them.

The shock and horror of it, tracing is considered cheating by everyone except those who use it and the truth is all professional artists use it, if they say they don’t they are either mistaken or liars.

The benefits of tracing far out weigh the disadvantages that’s why professionals use it and also the reason why you can’t use it because lets be fair we can all trace pictures. It really doesn’t compare with wasting two or three hours of your time on constructing a drawing does it?

Surely it is better to waste a few weeks doing something the hard way than it is to only spend a day doing it by taking advantage of the tools developed to help and enable you to be more productive at a higher standard.

That is why designers do the drawings for cars using very sophisticated design software on computers because every aspect needs to be exact and they can do it in an instant by comparison because the software does it for them.

So who’s cheating?

I found some web sites where you can get some pictures of cars for tracing and more information by following the links at the end of this article plus a description on how to find great cars to draw.

Take a picture of the car you want to draw from a magazine, brochure, book, photograph or off the internet and you can enlarge it on your computer to the size you want or make it smaller depending on your requirements. This can also be done with a photocopy machine as well because they will also zoom in or out to increase or decrease the size of the image you want to transform for drawing.

To increase or decrease the size of your image you can use a free software called IrfanView.

Down load IrfanView for capturing and resizing images off the Net.

How to download IrfanView, Free Software.

IrfanView image capture and resizing for printing, IrfanView is free with many useful and different applications.

Finding a great car to draw easy.

If you go to any search engine search page and look around the top you will see the word images, this is usually a link for doing images searches fro the web. Click on the word images and then think of a car you would like to draw. If you then write that into the search box on the page and press search it will produce an image search for the car you entered. You will be presented with hundreds of images of the car you would like to draw. More cars than you could probably draw in a year even with these simple methods I am going to show you. Please watch all the videos presented on this page as it is always good to watch others draw because it helps you to understand how it is done better yourself. Visual information is valuable, easily accessed and entertaining.

How to draw cars using tracing methods Part 1.

How to draw cars using tracing methods Part 2.

Everything you need to hand for learning how to draw a car.

For this example I am going to use a photograph of a Vauxhall Victor which is now a classic car because it is old. They don't make them anymore which is probably why it has some appeal to me plus I remember them as a child being something of awe.

I have printed the picture out onto A4 paper in gray scale so I can see the tonal values of the image better and since I am doing a drawing I do not need color to produce the end result.

Master tracing skills reveled.

How do I trace my image?

This is how to draw cars easy method one, I hold the printed image up to the light with the back of it facing me so as to be able to see it faintly through the paper. This is so I can mark out the area with a soft pencil this does not have to be completely accurate it is only a ruff guide.

Then I place the image face down onto a surface and where I have made the marks as a rough guide I then proceed to completely fill the area in with the graphite stick so there is no white of the paper showing. When I have completed this process my picture is ready to be traced onto the A3 drawing pad and this is how it works.

The graphite on the back of the image can be transferred onto the drawing pad when I redraw over the image, the pressure of the pencil drawing over the top produces faint lines by transferring the graphite onto the clean paper surface.

So to trace my image I then place it onto the A3 drawing pad and position it where I want it because this is not a compositional piece I place it in the center and fasten it down with blue tack in the corners so it doesn't move. If it does move when you are tracing the image it will spoil the construction drawing because the lines will not match or correspond with each other.

Then using the 0.5 technical drawing pencil I draw over the image following the lines trying to create as much detail as possible this needs to be done methodically so you don't forget where you are or what you have or haven't drawn. I always start by drawing the main outline first then the wheels and then adding the details like lights, windows, mirrors, trims, door handles, door lines and working downwards from the biggest to the smallest.

If you do lose your place and need to know where you are then it is possible to very carefully lift one side of the picture off so you can see the image underneath. Remember though you need to be careful because if it does not go back in the right spot it will ruin your drawing. When you are satisfied that you have done enough you can then remove the image to reveal what is underneath it is again best to do this by only removing one side first just in case you need to do more work on it. If you do miss things out don't worry because with having so much information already on the paper you will find it much easier to fill in any small details free hand later.

Now after doing this we have the basic construction that has been reproduced onto the pad, doing a drawing in this way makes life much easier because construction is everything. If you create a good drawing getting the construction right other mistakes will not be so apparent. How to draw cars as with any drawing means that if you get the construction wrong, then the end result will never look right. Then as you progress to do your shading and tonal modeling it will look even worse.

Lets take your skills further.

Now I expect that you don’t just want to be tracing cars for the rest of your life and although it is a great teaching method for getting you to look and actually see it will not enable you to develop your creative skills to make your own designs.

The next method will enable you to develop your skills further and become less restrained. If you have been experimenting and developing your skills with the tracing method you should now have feeling for drawing cars which will make this next method easier. Soon you will be feeling confident enough to push the boundaries further and risk being more experimental or creative.

My advice now would be after working hard drawing cars using the tracing method to move away from it and try using the grid method of drawing. Many artists use this method all their life once it is mastered and create some great pieces of art.

Drawing cars can be done by using a viewing grid take a look at the example below where I have taken the picture of a Vauxhall Victor and divided it into a grid by using lines. This was done using computer software but you can do it by using a ruler and measuring out the lines equally like in the example below, the grid will enable you to better find and define the areas you need to draw.

The real arts legend.

The humble pencil must be the real arts legend as much as charcoal is the god parent, it must have truly revolutionized drawing in it’s time and where would we be without it?

Hard pencils go from H, 2H and upwards to 9H the higher the number the harder they get.

Soft pencils go from B, 2B, and upwards to 9B the higher the number the softer they get.

In between these is the Hard Black or HB which is the most used pencil in the universe.

Lets get on with it.

These are the materials I am going to use to create my drawing.

A3 spiral bound drawing pad of fairly decent quality cartridge paper, this is twice as big as the picture I am going to draw because I always feel that I can crop a picture smaller but I can't ever make it bigger once it is completed. If I draw it onto a bigger piece of paper then I can if I want to add other images to it and form a composition because I have given myself the space around the drawing to be able to do that.

The other tools are a soft black pencil known as a 2B pencil the one I always use for drafting is a 0.5 technical drawing pencil that has very thin fine graphite sticks inserted inside it that feed out of the end when you press the button on the top. I use this pencil because it is always sharp and can produce a very fine line without scouring the paper caused by pressing too hard if you do press too hard it brakes the graphite stick because it is very soft. I also use traditional 4B and 6B pencils because you can create very dark tones almost black with them and Very light tones by softly stroking the paper with them, practice a little with these pencils and you will realize what I mean.

I also use graphite sticks that are large pieces of graphite that can be used to cover large areas of paper with little effort.

The grid method.

Using this grid method means that in the future you will be able to scale your drawings to any size bigger or smaller depending on the size of drawing you want. Measure the size of your picture and then divide or multiply the number to make your picture bigger or smaller. Measure the length and height of your picture, so for example if it is 24cm wide and 18cm high then you can divided it by six giving you 12 squares in your grid. That’s four squares along the width and three along the height this might be easier to understand by looking at the picture below that I have started. A word of advice the more squares you have the easier it will be to construct your drawing because you will have more points of reference I would advise you to use 3cm squares not 6cm like I have making it 24 squares in total.

Grid reference.

Now what you do is work out where lines cross your grid lines to give you reference points to be able to work out where the different lines and marks go because you are using a grid the area you are working in is lot smaller. This makes it easier because it enables you to keep things in proportion and not have to think to hard about perspective. In the above picture notice how I have started by doing the front of the car and very little of the rest so I can do the detail square by square until it is complete. Don’t worry too much if the first couple of attempts don’t work out as well as you would like they will with a little practice and you will soon get quite competent at doing this. Below you will find some pictures of my progress using this method of construction.

Draw anything.

Master this grid method and you will soon be able to draw a car or anything else, not just cars to any size you want. Some people make them selves a viewing grid out of clear plastic sheeting with lines drawn onto it so they can place it in front of them to draw anything anywhere, landscapes, people, buildings or objects just about anything.

The fact is all drawing is about measurement, how you do that measuring is completely up to you. You can do it the hard way or an easier way. The hard way is trying to draw freehand thinking you can just draw by looking. The hard way is not understanding that all drawing is measuring, how you do it is up to you. Yes I said the same thing twice because it's true.

Finally I have created a picture that is a combination of three methods.

1. I have traced the main body of the car without the wheels and top half of the roof.

2. I have drawn in the wheels from an earlier picture of the corvette and made them fit the body but lowered it so it is nearer the ground also lowered the roof to make the car look longer. This is very much like using the grid method because the tracing has given me reference points to work from.

3. I have combined all the information gathered and made a mash up thus creating my very own unique car from the learning I have acquired whilst putting this information together.

I hope this gives you the insight, enthusiasm and knowledge to now create your own mash up and develop your drawing skills.

Thank you for your time and I wish you much success and enjoyment.

Just a little bit about car tires and wheels.

Below you will find a short video about finding good visual information in the pictures you want to use as examples to draw cars from, so as to be more able to draw tires and wheels that look realistic. The question was asked how to you get your tires to look that good, so I made this short video to try to explain that your drawing will only be as good as the information you have to copy from, the better the picture the better your information and end drawing. When you have drawn a number of different tires and wheels you will have also built up a visual understanding of how to make them look good, along with a visual memory that will inform your future drawings. The video gives an example of the detail you need to be looking for when wanting to be more able to draw wheels and tires that look that good.

The harder you look, the more information you will find, in the example video below you will see how, and also be told how to identify that information, with good detailed information in the picture you would like to draw you will find it much easier to create realistic tires and wheels that look that good, as well as realistic drawings.

Hi Collegemoneyguy,

It’s a win, win, win for us all even making Hubs can be considered artistic.

I like the word brilliant it makes me feel like the effort was well worth it plus that's the beauty of art, you get a buzz out of doing the drawing then as a bonus others get something from it as well.

Thank you, Gareth.

Get this, I don't like cars either but I do like

the look of them plus I can draw anything, any

size or any shape and just like you there was a

time when I couldn't ...

So I made sure I could.

If you can't trace cars then you must be

blind or have some serious disablement and

if so then please accept my best regards

because I have a few of them as well.

This is a truly impressive and informative hubpage. Had I not read Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain I could have learned everything right here for free. Not that I regret reading Betty Edward's book. This hubpage is a wonderful complement to her book. I use a combination of tracing and grid work to do my best work.


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 5 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi R C Bonay,

Thank you for your comment, many artists use tracing and grid reference methods of construction but drawing is more than just construction it is also about form and use of marks that is why I commented on your pictures.

These other elements such as form and mark making are not easily accomplished if at all by using tracing or grid reference methods.

Drawing anything is also about seeing the shape as a 3dimentional object/form and being able to covey that form to the onlooker. This is enabling you to exercise and develop use of the creative muscle, metaphorically speaking because the brain is not a muscle.

Thank you, Gareth.

Hey Gareth, this is a fantastic hub I did not realise what you was getting at in the beginning so came back a few days later when the penny dropped but what I think you are trying to say is all the professionals cheat but just don’t tell us.

I don’t know if I would go as far as saying that people cheat because I think in most cases people just draw cars or pictures and unless somebody asks how it was drawn then nobody actually tells them. I think most people see others on TV or in pictures drawing free hand and just assume that all drawing is done in that way so don’t really ask how it is done. The cheating happens when they don’t tell others the truth but the truth is most people don’t ask how you did the drawing and therefor those using easier methods don’t have to lie because we make our own assumptions.

So what I am saying is people have a general misconception of how pictures are made in the first place and so don’t really know what methods professionals use to draw cars. The end result is people end up cheating themselves because they don’t really know the methods used by professional’s and just assume that all drawing is done free hand making drawing cars much harder than it needs to be.

Thank you for the comment and I hope this is not too long winded, Gareth.

hii im a girl i dont like cars i like to draw cartoons but i couldnt i could only if i see it frm my laptop and copy so plz could you give me tips of how could i draw using my imagination


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 5 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

HI marioom,

If someone was to draw cars regularly using the methods on this page it would not be long and they would soon be able to draw them without looking.  They would soon know how car drawings worked because they would have drawn them a number of times and the same applies to drawing anything including cartoons. If you practice your drawing skills you get better at it if you practice using your imagination then you will get better at that also.

Thanks, Gareth.


Tine 5 years ago

Hey, i thought this was very imformative, though i already knew most of these methods it helped me. I am a teen girl, and am absolutely in love with cars,(kind of odd for a girl) especially muscle cars ('67 Chevy Impala or a '68 Camaro) Thanks for this, it really helped me out!

WOW dude these pictures are awesome man!! Nice. What's the best angle for a wagon design? Like in a graphical sense? I've got the kit, just need a push in the right direction if you can help me out man.


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 5 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Bradders,

I would say that only you could know the best angle and I am not trying to give a smart answer to your question in saying this because it is matter of taste yours not mine.

I will say that if you want good ideas then take a look at how manufactures present their machines because they spend a great deal of money trying to get the very best presentation pictures to sell their goods.

I will also allow myself to say that I like low angles that covey the idea that something is big because you are seemingly looking up at it.

Thank you for the praise, Gareth.


Bradders 5 years ago

Hey dude, Brad again man. I've tried the whole looking up at it angle and I'm happier with the results. I showed my sketches to some buds and they disagreed man but I like em and thats what matters to me dude. So big up yourself Gareth you helped me out bro, thanks man.


Mittens 5 years ago

WOW!! Excellent hub!! It has really helped thanks for taking the time and effort to make it!! The only problem I have with drawing really is that I'm very slow, it takes me ages to draw somthing good, and then because iv'e took so long with it I get bored... Is there any way I could draw faster and still maintain my standards?


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 5 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Brad, to be perfectly honest I am gutted because I cannot see what you are talking about and would love to see your work, in fact it would be great if everybody had an opportunity to see it.

Perhaps you should think about building your own Hubpage and showing your work to the world as for those who disagree ask them why because you can learn a great deal from the opinions others even when they are in disagreement.

I always think that success is a journey not a destination with no education ever being neutral so you have to do things for yourself to get the best rewards, keep at it and learn thy self.

I am so, so glad I am useful so thank you again, Gareth.  


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 5 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Mittens,

The obvious answer to this question is simply practice more.

You might be better practicing by drawing things that are not going to take so long to complete because by now you should have good idea about what will take a long time and what won’t.

If you practice by drawing less complicated stuff you will still get better but not take so long to complete your drawings and thus not get so bored.

I can’t help thinking that your real boredom is impatience and knowing that you can draw it but can’t be bothered to prove it which might mean you’re doomed, ha, ha, just joking it probably means you are pushing yourself too hard.

Try drawing stuff that is quicker to complete and relax a bit you can drive yourself too hard you know and sometimes burn yourself out through doing it then you don’t do anything perhaps until your bored of not drawing.

Thank you, Gareth.

Nice Hub

I do a lot of drawing myself. I've never traced anything, well recently. As a kid of course I used to.

I have used a grid, although I get tired of erasing the lines afterwards. A grid is a good way to enlarge or make a drawing smaller in scale.

Another way to get exactness, other than tracing is to use another device. It's called a pair of scissors!

That's right, just take some good scissors and cut the object out from the page. Then lay it on top of your drawing paper and gently trace around it...GENTLY!

You can even take it further and cut out other things. Like in cars for example, you can cut out the wheel wells, then the doors, windshield and etc. Once you have a guideline on the paper the real artwork comes in.

I don't think any of this is cheating. I personally can take the time, measuring and get everything in proportion, but some detailed drawings take a lot of time. Time is money, right!

Check out some of my hubs on drawing when you get a chance.

Thanks

Jeff


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 5 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Jeff,

Nice info, more variety the better I say, what a duller planet it would be if everything was the same. I only ever remember using a grid to draw the picture of the Vauxhall Victor as an illustration for this hub I don't use them usually but I have in the past I just don't remember when.

The scissor method will enable smiler learning or rather it will help to look at detail and shapes a bit like the tracing will, it is an interesting extra exercise to further enable better comprehension. I personally think your cheating yourself if you don't try these ways because they enable greater awareness to detail and the value of it.

Yes they teach children to trace but the problem is do they really comprehend or are they enjoying themselves so much in the doing to really understand or take much notice?

Time is money yes if you have a dead line to meet or need to feed yourself and family, too right but I am sure it is worth far more and isn't that the point, learn to draw my friend, learn to draw. Learn to see further than the end of you nose please.

I ran over to your hubs and found some great drawings, interesting info, thank you very much, Gareth.

Also a big hi to tabb,

I am happy it was really useful and thank you for the acknowledgment, Gareth.

I need to say, this night I went through few of your hub's and read a lot of comments and you answers to them ...the way you commit yourself to us(learners) it just sooo motivating :D

I know that you are spending a lot of time here.. helping others,showing them the right path of understanding that we create our talent for drawing, or any other talent...when you say like "wow that guy really has talent" ... a lot of people take it the wrong way...like that he was born knowing to for example: draw well , but he wasn't ,even if he has photographic memory still he had to practice.

You are helping people to understand that they are all talented in there own way,But they just need to practice :)

Or that is at least what you pointed out to me :]

Thank you Gareth !

Best Regards Marko


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 4 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi heart4theword, thank you for your comment.

Hi Maxwell Fisher you might have said that a little better than I did, thanks.

Hi Isaiah O'Neal,

How do I start drawing?

The answer to this question must be that first you must have the desire to want to do some drawing.

You must also obtain the equipment to be able to do some drawing and finally you must decide what it is you want to draw. This comes in no particular order really but you mast have all three in place before you can start drawing.

Then you need to hold the drawing tool and start making marks on the paper so as to resemble what it is you want to draw, if you just want to draw then you can make patterns, dashes, lines, dots, circles, squares, triangles, cubes or letters perhaps. If you want to draw a subject that is recognizable then you might want to draw sheep, dogs, cows, people, faces, places, buildings or combinations of these you are the sole decision maker and it is completely up to you.

You can follow any method you want and my advice is trying them all over a time but if you want to improve quickly then learn to trace pictures first.

Trace pictures to improve you’re drawing quickly.

Tracing pictures and learn to draw faster and easier.

oliviababie 4 years ago

wow i like your drawings so much! i really hope one day i could be as good as you!! but could you tell me how old were you when you first scetched your first car that was good? because im 12 and i LOVE art and drawing, painting, scetching ect and i dont think im very good.


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 4 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi oliviababie,

I do not want to shatter yours or anyone's illusions but I only started drawing cars when I built this page at 47 years of age. When I was 12 I liked motor bikes, Marvel comic heroes, Conan, Hulk, Spiderman, Dare Devil, Doctor Strange and girls, these are what I was drawing. I have been drawing all my life because I too LOVE art and drawing, painting, sketching etc, I think that is most important, where as good has nothing to do with it. You, me and many others think my car drawings are good but my dad thinks they are rubbish, he tells me I should draw birds or dogs, proper drawings because that's what he likes. Getting from being not very good to being good comes quite quickly it seems and can happen in weeks depending on how much drawing you do. Then trying to get even better still becomes much more difficult because your understanding becomes more refined and smaller more detailed. You can spend hours doing the best drawing you have ever done and nobody else seems to realize how good it is because they do not see like you do, you are refining your observation skills but they are not. The best way to get better is to find others who like drawing and learn from each other because often they are the only people who realize how good your drawing is, every one else seems to just see pictures. The problems you are expressing seem to hound us all, mostly because we work in isolation on our own inside our own heads so the best way out of that is to find others. My best advice for getting better is to draw difficult stuff to challenge and push yourself, draw things that seem impossible. Glass and water are very difficult to capture yet they are also most uninteresting to most people yet very interesting when you look hard into them. I hope this helps but if it doesn’t keep at it and keep finding questions to ask because that helps you to think deeper about what you are trying to do.

All the very best, thank you, Gareth.

Hello Gareth, nice hub to get people on their feet with the grid and trace idea, I trace sometimes cars or things that I really like, but not with the grid, I just look at the picture and draw it, I love designing my own cars, and I'm not cheating at all when I design cars or anything new or whatever,and I'm not a liar when I say that. I never had art classes in my life, just one tip when I was 9-10 years old, from a very wise man and dear friend who I considered my grandfather, that changed everything I new about drawing in my life.

For the rest a taught myself, I am planning on openning a hub that will show that tip, just because I love drawing so much and share that tip with the world.

Hi there,

I don't particularly have a favourite car to draw but I do seem to have drawn the Austin Healey 3000 Mk III more than once. My favourite to look at or most desirable are the 1960's Ford Mustang Shelby GT's which I found very interesting. I also discovered that another British car which I am fond of is the Ford Capri 1970's and is actually based on the Shelby GT's of the 60's.

Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 3 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi j425,

Perhaps you are setting your standards too high and perhaps you need to be just a little less desperate to impress others. My dad always used to say to me that more hast equals less speed meaning that trying to do something too quickly usually results in it not being done well and ending up having to do it again. Take your time and think carefully about what you are doing. To get a true evaluation of your drawings is not always easy as in my experience many people are often keen to criticize even when they don't really know what they are talking about. I hope you don't give up but learn to give it time instead.

Thanks, Gareth.

Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 3 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Hamza Mehmood,

You can take a copy of this any time you want but there isn't much point because it is not going anywhere fast and will be around for a long time to come, it will also change some, as it does.

The page was a challenge and took me about 3 days but it has changed since. The idea for this page was given to me because it was a challenge although I have been drawing all my life as far back as I can remember so that helps a great deal. I am 50 and I have been drawing since I was 5, I have had 45 years practice so if it wasn't awesome to some people then I would need to have a big chat with myself I think.

I am from Wrexham North Wales quite a way from Bradford but not too far I have been to the city a couple of times

and Bradford Uni has a highly recommended arts department. So highly recommended that I recommend you go there if only to take a look around, even if you have been before because you will find lots of cool, wild imagination.

Thanks for the opportunity and compliments, Gareth.

I dont think you mention what kind of markers you use, could you please give me the name of the brand and type. THANKS A GIFFEEE


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 3 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Kaaabooom,

The markers I used where touch markers and you can find out more about them and using them at another hubpage:

http://garethpritchard.hubpages.com/hub/Drawing-ca...

The reason I did not put them into this page was because when I created the page I had not used any markers they have only been used since creating it.

Thanks for pointing that out and thanks for making the comment.

Gareth.

hey gareth!

love your drawings. do u look at pictures or do u draw out of memory, and if u do use your memory, then how do you do it, i am pretty much tired of going on the internet to get images of cars i wanna draw. i would like to know how to draw out of memory, please respond.

hi how can i be a better drawer/


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 3 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hey J-man thanks for the approval, cool, as for the questions, I draw from pictures most of the time and the part about drawing from memory is a big answer but not one I would like to answer in a comment on how to draw cars easy. I have been asked this many times so I think it deserves a hub of it's own. Please see this hub: http://garethpritchard.hubpages.com/hub/Drawing-fr...

I always like the Ford Capri and the Mustang.

Thanks, Gareth.

Hi boob41,

You are so right, learning how to draw can be achieved quite quickly and easily but getting good at it, and drawing from memory or trying to draw from imagination do not come quickly.

thax savvife but your stuff that you do is to hard for me becuse im only 13


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 2 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hey Noah,

13 is really good age to be pushing your boundaries and to say something is too hard, will always make it too hard, give it a try and it might not be. If you try you will succeed in not accepting that it is too hard and that will be a success in its self.

All the very best with your drawing and hope you just try things instead of thinking they are too hard because they often aren't.

Lots of success to you, thanks for making a comment, Gareth.

I just want to tell you about that. maybe I'm going to change some stuff in it.

I am very happy for you to do so, and all the very best with your drawing, it would be nice if we could see it when you have finished but no problem if you don't have the means to do so.

Thanks for asking, Gareth.

zone 2 years ago

thanks for the information. Could you teach how to shade the human figure using this method?


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 2 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Zone,

good question.

I personally have never had any problems with shading so because of that have never looked at it in the same detail, I am not devaluing shading it has great value but it just doesn't seem as important to me. Drawings to me don't even need shading if you can construct your figure well because the lines on their own create the illusion to me personally. Well placed lines can suggest so much, I purposely left the shading out of this because I felt it important to teach people about construction as I feel it is the most difficult part of drawing.

I feel that if you get your construction wrong it will never look good, where as like I have said, you don't even need shading if the outline and construction is good. The other reason I left it out was to encourage self development and experimentation, to give people a method where by they can make accurate drawings, giving them a strong foundation to practice and experiment with shading by their selves.

As for the human figure it to has more to do with construction than shading, you see many people trying to hide their poor construction drawing by masking it with shading but it rarely works and often end up with a messy drawing. The best way to understand shading is to only do shading, practice shading on blank tracings and get some photographic references of the figure. Trace them and then devote your time to practicing your shading without the pressure of having to do the construction. Doing drawing in this way will still help you to develop and strengthen your visual memory but you will be doing it in a less difficult way.

If I was to show you a way of doing this with shading as well, would you actually be doing any drawing that's the question I have. If you want to do that then my advice would be to take up photography, you will get much more pleasure and reward from it than you will from completely tracing images because then it is not drawing, it is a form of printing and will be too uniform, and wooden.

Nothing in this world worth having, ever comes easy, if it does then it doesn't feel like it is worth very much.

Thanks for the opportunity, Gareth.

Oh yes, I forgot to say that the Vauxhall Victor was the first car I had after passing my driving test. Two-tone blue and grey. A modern looking car in those days. The next Victor I had was a 101 Estate after a few Hillmans in between.. :-)


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 2 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Derek,

I have never owned one myself because I don't drive but I do remember them and yes I thought they looked great and still do. I had a look at your blog and was pleasantly surprised to find places I am a little familiar with, Cardiff, Merthyr and Snowdon. You might be interested in another Hub I made which has a nice picture of part of Snowdonia and a video of a painting again of the Snowdonia Mountain range, I am not trying to be pushy but I do think you might like these. The Hub is called (I had another play with your rainbow) I won't put it here as a link because comments are not for promoting Hubs.

Thank you again for your info about the Victor, your comment and your time, Gareth.

I have drawn a sketch of Lamborghini Murcielago i have shaded thewindows and the underneath of the car my linesa are quite dark and i was wondering if you could help with the inner bit of the wheels and the backgroung


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 2 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi Bob, I would love to try but I don't really understand what you are saying, by inner bit are you talking about the wheels themselves, not the tires?

When you are talking about the backgroung do you mean back ground and is that the back ground to the car or the wheels? Plus without being able to see what you are talking about it is so difficult to make any recommendations.

Thanks, Gareth.

Hi Insect Artist,"Don't you think that half the job is having a passion in a subject?" I agree with this statement completely and would go as far as to say that having a passion for drawing is the so called talent needed to do it. Thanks for taking a look and commenting, Gareth.


akhil 2 years ago

this site truely awesome . it has everything what i needed to sketch cars. can you also recommend me some books about sketching cars ?


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 2 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi akhil,

Thanks for a great comment and to be honest I wrote this page, and others because I could not find any books, that where really teaching any more, than the information on my pages.

Take a look under the video on this page, (How to draw a car, Ford Mustang, Shelby, GT500, Hot Rod, 2012.) and you will find more useful links to information about drawing cars.

I would not like to recommend any books, only to say don't by down loadable books off line, have a look at second hand books off Amazon, don't pay more than ten dollars.

Ask questions about things you would like to know about and try to resist asking people to recommend anything online, that you will have to buy because in many cases people will only try to make money out of you rather than providing you with valuable information. There's always enough for need but never enough for greed.

Hope this helps thanks, Gareth.

carfreak 2 years ago

hey Gareth,

I love drawing and designing new cars, even though I/m only thirteen, and I'm a Batman fan. i have always wanted to design the future batmobile, but I didn't know who to talk to. Ever since I read this hub, I realized that my prayers have been answered. I wanted to ask you for tips for designing the new batmobile. Please do reply. Thanks.


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 2 years ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hey carfreak, thanks for the confidence you have in me, first off I agree Batman needs a new car, those tumbler, Lamborghini tank things are awful, I am sure Batman should have better than that. I would first do some research on bats, real bats, there must be some unusual things about certain types of bats that you can use or adopt. I would be looking for uniqueness I would also do some searching for futuristic car designs a good place to start would an image search in the search engines. I did a quick search in Goggle and found a ton of ideas, do that and then report back with some of your ideas please.

Thanks and all the best, Gareth.


lambofan 22 months ago

hi there i wanna know how to draw a modern interpretations of an old classic(Ex. Jaguar E type, ford mustang, audi quattro, chevy camaro, dodge charger, etc). If you have any tips, please tell me. btw, i love ur techniques!!!


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 22 months ago from North Wales Hub Author

Hi lambofan, if you look at the transformation of cars over a number of years you will find in most instances that they don't change greatly from one year to the next. It seems to me that the car manufacturers only make subtle changes every year or two, you might see a big change after ten years, from say 196o to 1970 but not usually after only two years. The way to do this would be to do it the same way, take the standard car then add or take something away or change it slightly, then do it again and again, ten or fifteen times adding or taking bits away or both. The car manufactures also make it their business to find out what the buying public like, so cars change according to the changing tastes of the culture in which they exist. It also seems to me that modern cars are less ornate than the older versions but they all seem to keep the basic shape. Modern cars don't seem to have as much chrome on them and bumper bars seem to have disappeared but I can't show you what I mean because I do not have enough drawings or photographs of year on year versions. The best way to see this is with image searches for different yearly models and look closely for the changes. If you look and intentionally take notice of this stuff it will stick, giving you ideas as well as helping your learning by just looking closely but it will take time , and not really happen over night. You will have to work at it but the work will help you develop your skills in many ways over time. One thing I am sure of, is if you did this and presented your work as a portfolio for getting onto a college coarse they would love it because it is the design process of developmental change.

I hope this is helpful, thanks, Gareth.


iluvcarsalot 22 months ago

Hey there Gareth,

I just love your post. It seems that you love and know what you are doing. Btw, I have a lot of trouble drawing cars. I always get the details right, such as grille, lights, rims, etc. But, I after finishing it, I realize that the proportions of some parts of the car(such as the hood, the front end, the mirrors, windows, side quarter panels, etc.), are all wrong and then it starts to look like a cartoon-like car. HEEELLPP!!!!


Gareth Pritchard profile image

Gareth Pritchard 22 months ago from North Wales Hub Author

It is difficult to say without seeing what you are talking about but I think a big problem for people in the beginning is focusing too much in one area. Without comparing it and standing back to take a look at it from a little bit of a distance, you end up focusing too much in one area. Do a little bit then take a look and compare it with other features on your drawing and the subject matter of the drawing, meaning what you are copying from. If you are not copying then sorry you are screwed mate, just joking, ha, ha.

Look at the whole drawing at a distance and don't spend too much time in one area, do a bit on one side then on the other. A bit on the top then on the bottom, working around your drawing keeping it well balanced and always stopping to take another look at it from a distance. It will slow you down and give you more chance of seeing where you are going wrong hopefully before you get it wrong.

Thanks for the comment and if you feel you need more help just ask again, to question is healthy.

Thanks, Gareth.

Hi ilikegames, learning how to draw many different things especially in the early stages of developing your drawing abilities can't really be a bad thing as it will give you more experience of recreating different shapes. It will help you're drawing a lot to draw lots of variation especially in the beginning. Thanks for the comment, Gareth.
