Car Drawings – Done the right way
By Lukas Niklasson
Drawing cars is like expericening the car as it was right infront of you. To me drawing a car usually gives me more insight of the details on the car that I would normally not notice from just looking at a picture.
Is it really so hard to do a nice Ferrari sketch or nice Porsche drawing for that matter? That is a question I get a lot. My answer is that only patience can make a good drawing. Because if you are not willing to spend many hours just getting the proportions of the sketch right, the shading right or the lights right the result will be not very impressive.
My best advise on how to improve your car drawings is simply to spend more time on them. For example if you are not fully satisfied with the front lights, don't just continue with the drawing and hoping that the lights will get better by some magical touch! No, look at the lights and don't give up on them until you are fully satisfied with them, then move on to the next part of the car drawing.
What you need to do is to look at the outward lines of the car, try to get a shape by simply trying to sketch a few lines. Then compare that to your reference car and simply fine tune the lines little by little without erasing the old lines.
Another advise is to not have the attitude of completing the drawing / sketch tonight, because this will just make you ruch the whole drawing and get you frustrated that it is taking longer than you expected.
Instead work an hour here and an hour there and sooner than you think you will have completed a great drawing of that favorite Porsche of yours!
