In the instruction presented on this page, the team of Drawcarz.com will show you how to draw a drag car – a car designed for drag racing.
For clarity of the drawing process, we decided to take an old muscle car from the middle of the 20th century. Such cars are very often used for drag racing. But of course, using the stages from this instruction on how to draw a drag car, you can draw any other car for drag racing.
How to Draw a Drag Car
Draw a long and flat body of the drag car with very light and smooth lines. The hood should be very long and the roof very low.
Depict the wheel arches and the lower edges of the front and rear bumpers with smooth and neat lines. The tops of the arches should point in different directions from the center.
Depict a window frame using a long, smooth line. Carefully correct the outline of the drag car with darker lines. Depict a door, a front bumper, and a small spoiler.
Using very smooth lines depict the tires and perfectly round rims inside them. The top of the wheels should be hidden under the fenders.
Get rid of all the auxiliary construction lines that were depicted by us in the first stages. Darken and sharpen your drawing with darker, crisper lines for a more voluminous and convincing look.
To correctly depict the pattern of the rims, first, depict the circles within the rims. Next, depict the spokes that diverge from the center to the edges.
Next, carefully depict the rest of the rims using additional lines. In the center, you can add bolt nuts to make the rims more detailed.
Depict the bottom of the drag car inside the arches. Draw long decorative lines on the side of the body. Depict a rectangle handle in the upper right part of the door.
To make the drag car drawing more voluminous and realistic, let’s add shadows. Start from the darkest areas and work your way up to the lighter ones. Do not forget to depict highlights on the windows.
You can further refine your drag car drawing by adding additional touches. Darken the necessary areas and make the transitions between light and shadow more contrast.
