We really like these old cars, first of all, because they were not created by managers, but by real artists and engineers. They had a truly interesting and majestic look, which to this day attracts the eyes of people on the roads.
And today we want to show you how to draw an antique car precisely in order to remind you how interesting and stylish cars can be.
How to Draw an Antique Car
First of all, sketch out the outlines of the car, and place it on the paper. The car should be long and create a feeling of heaviness and solidity.
Now depict the windshield and rear window. Draw the frame of the side windows between them. The contours of all windows should be very rounded.
In the front part, depict the bumper and the visible side of the headlight. Draw a wheel arch next to the bumper. Classic cars were often built without rear wheel arches.
Now go to the back and draw the visible side of the taillight and the rear bumper. If it seems to you that the drawing is not quite even and proportional, then you can check it by looking at it through a mirror.
Separate the front glass from the rear by depicting the B-pillar. Next, draw a single long door. In the old days, more cars were made in the coupe body than in our time.
Now draw a long molding that runs through almost the entire side part of the car. In the back, draw decorative elements using a series of straight lines.
In the lower front corner of the window frame, depict a round antique rearview mirror. Draw the door handle on the right side of the door. Don’t forget to depict the line one the hood.
Get rid of all unnecessary construction lines from your antique car drawing. Next, draw a round front wheel and a rim inside. The wheel, as well as the rim, must have a perfectly round shape. Don’t forget to draw the visible part of the rear wheel.
Draw a series of lines within the rims, as shown in the example drawn by the artists of Drawcarz.com. In those days, wheels were more often equipped with similar hubcaps instead of spoked rims.
Now let’s add shadows starting from the darkest areas, i.e. the wheel arches. Then gradually move to lighter areas. Don’t forget to add highlights to the glass surfaces.
