Drawing cars is very different from drawing humans. The proportions are quite different and if you don’t own a car, and don’t care about cars, you’ve probably never had a good look at a car.
This is my first, very naive version of a Dodge Stratus, the first example from the book “Draw Cars” by Doug DuBosque. It is because DuBosque’s tutorial is so easy to follow that the drawing actually resembles a car.
Nevertheless, it is too short. Obviously, measuring the distance between the wheels in the number of wheel diameters is key.
I’m excited about this, because it forces me to draw with more precision. I tend to judge proportions badly, while I believe that is one of the most important parts of setting up a sketch. My hope is that drawing cars will improve my skills and help me to draw humans with more refinement than I currently do.
That is all.
