How to Draw a Concrete Truck
First of all, depict the silhouette of the cab and the long cargo section. You can use a ruler for this stage, but it’s best to try without it.
Use smooth, curved lines to depict an arch at the bottom of the cabin. In the front part, depict a vertically elongated headlight. Now go up a little higher and depict a window.
Carefully depict the visible side part of the windshield. Next, use straight lines to depict the door. Draw the handle below the window as a small horizontal rectangle.
On the rear of the cargo area, depict a huge rotating drum of a cement mixer. By the way, to check the proportionality of this detail and the truck drawing as a whole, look at it through a mirror.
Now move to the back of the truck and depict the details you see in the drawing from the artists of Drawcarz.com. Use very smooth lines in this stage.
Now let’s add details to the concrete mixer. By the way, you can also check the proportionality of your truck drawing if you move away from it or turn it upside down.
Carefully depict four perfectly round wheels. After that depict four equally perfectly round rims inside them. The rear two wheels should be closer to each other than the rest.
Draw small circles in the center of the rims. After that depict small circles around each rim, equally spaced apart. Try to keep all circles the same size.
Remove any remaining unnecessary construction lines from the concrete truck drawing. In addition, add the necessary dark lines to make the art more voluminous and convincing.
Add shadows and highlights to make the concrete truck drawing more realistic and voluminous. In addition, you can add colors and some details and inscriptions.
