How to Draw a Dump Truck
Let’s start the instruction on how to draw a dump truck by depicting the basic outlines using straight and rough lines. Here you need to depict the cabin and the cargo part.
Use clear and dark lines to depict the details of the upper part of the cab. In the same stage, detail the outlines of the cargo part.
Draw a window at the top of the cab. After that, next to the cab, depict an air cleaner. Use long, straight, and clear lines to draw the wheel arch.
Use long, straight lines to depict a pattern on the side of the cargo part. To check proportionality, look at the truck drawing through a mirror.
Using straight and crisp lines, depict the details as in the example from the artist of Drawcarz.com. To check the proportionality of the truck drawing, you can move it away from you or turn it upside down.
With the help of an eraser, get rid of construction lines in the artwork. Draw tires and rims inside them as large circles of the perfectly round shape.
Draw the rims inside the wheels in the shape of simple circles. Next, depict the details as shown in the example drawn by Drawcarz.com below.
Get rid of any remaining construction lines and add the necessary finishing touches. In addition, you can add shadows to make the truck drawing more realistic.
