How to Draw a Car — Let’s get started!
Draw two small circles on the lower portion of your paper. This will be the inner outline of your car wheels.
Don’t worry if you can freehand a perfect circle shape! You can always use a compass, a drawing tool that helps you draw a flawless circle quickly and easily.
Step 2 — Draw the Wheels of the Car
Draw another two circles surrounding the small circles we drew in the previous step.
Once you’ve finished drawing the circle shapes, it should look like a pair of wheels, as shown in the illustration. The wheels should also be about an inch apart.
Step 3 — Attach the Bumpers to the Wheels
Draw a long, narrow rectangular shape connecting both wheels. The bumper will serve as the foundation of the car so make sure to make it as long as you want your car to be.
Step 4 — Outline the Body of the Car
Right above the bumper, structure the outline of the car’s body by drawing downward curved lines extending all the way to the other end of the bumper.
The outline consists of two downward curved lines: one small curved line for the hood connected to a relatively bigger curved line to form the roof of the car,
Step 5 — Draw the Front Door Window
On the left side of the roof, draw a curved line following the outline of the roof. Then, connect both ends of the curved line with a left-facing 90-degree angle line.
Step 6 — Next, Draw the Rear Door Window
Repeat the previous step on the other side of the car to create two even and proportion car windows. The front window must be slightly bigger than the rear window.
Step 7 — Then, Outline the Front Door
Create the front door by drawing a square shape with curved corners right underneath the front window. Keep in mind that the front window and the front door should be aligned and even.
Step 8 — Draw the Lights and the Door Handle
Now, it’s time to add details on the car to make it appear more realistic.
Start by drawing half circle shapes on both ends of the car to create the headlight and taillight. The lights should be located just right above the bumper of the car.
Step 9 — Add Patterns on the Car Windows
Car windows are typically reflective, thus resulting in visible diagonal patterns. Draw multiple parallel diagonal lines on each car window to create the illusion of a “reflection”.
Now that you have successfully drawn a car, it’s time to the most exciting part—coloring your awesome car drawing! Go ahead and pick the colors to make your car vibrant and colorful!
Cars come in a wide range of designs and exist in every color. So, if you have a favorite color, there’s most probably a car with that color.
