We most often show you how to draw new cars, but here our team will show you how to draw a classic car.
In fact, the concept of a classic car is very flexible. This term can be used both for cars from the beginning of the 20th century and for cars from the end of the same century.
In this instruction, the team of Drawcarz.com will show you how to draw a classic car using the example of a mid-20th century Muscle Car.
How to Draw a Classic Car
First of all, create the outlines of the future classic car using very light, almost invisible lines. The body of the car must be very long and fairly flat.
Now draw the wheel arches and the bottom lines of the front and rear bumpers. Wheel arches should slope slightly from the center to the edges.
Now use smoother lines to correct the outlines of the body. In the same stage, depict the front bumper and headlight frame. Finish this stage by depicting the air intake on the hood.
Now depict the visible side part of the windshield. In the same stage, depict the frame of the side windows. When creating this detail, keep in mind that we are drawing a car in a coupe body.
Now draw a line at the back of the window frame. Depict a long door and a handle on it. In the same stage, depict the air intake next to the door and a light line above the rear arch.
A fairly simple stage in which we will depict a small rearview mirror in the front lower corner of the side window. By looking at your classic car drawing through a mirror, you can see all the mistakes and inaccuracies.
Now, be very careful to get rid of all construction lines. Use two perfect circles to create the front and rear wheels. Draw equally perfectly circular rims inside them.
Now let’s start drawing the details of the rims. Begin by carefully drawing the spokes inside the outer outline. These spokes should diverge evenly from the center to the edges.
Finish drawing the rims by adding the rest of the spokes. In the central part, you can draw round lug nut. This will make the rims more detailed and realistic.
To make the drawing of the classic car more voluminous and realistic, add shadows and highlights. You can add multiple layers of shadows to make the artwork more contrasting and three-dimensional.
