How to Draw a Garbage Truck
To draw a garbage truck, you first need to imagine it in the form of simple geometric shapes. First, depict the cab and large cargo area using simple, straight lines. Try drawing all these lines without a ruler.
Now use straight lines to depict the cab. Make the corners rounded. Next, use a curved line to draw the wheel arch. Draw a bumper in the front.
Use a pair of curved lines to depict an arch below the cab. Then go to the cargo area and depict complex straight lines like in the example below.
Draw a large window on the cab. After that depict straight decorative lines on the back of the cab. Also, create a couple of long horizontal lines on the cargo area.
Carefully get rid of all construction lines. Then depict the wheels that should be perfectly round. Complete the stage by depicting the rims inside the wheels.
Depict small circles in the center of the rims. Then depict smaller circles around the center circles. These circles must be the same size.
Get rid of all unnecessary construction lines and make in the final finishing touches. Also, you can try adding shadows and highlights to make the garbage truck drawing look more voluminous.
So, these were seven fairly simple stages on how to draw a trash truck. To give the artwork a more realistic and lively look, try coloring it and adding some inscriptions on the body.
