3 tips when you draw cartoon cars

  • Remember to let your curves flow or run naturally. If you are a beginner, try some practice curves on a piece of scrap paper before go into real drawing. This will allow you to get it eventually! Curve plays an important part when drawing cartoon cars, the quality of your curves defines the quality of a good cartoon car.
  • Draw lightly with your pencil when you start draft out the car so that when any matter happen, you can clean it up or erase any ugly unwanted lines easily.
  • To pimp out the car, or to give the wheel some thickness, you can first draw a small straight line that extends from the lowest part of the larger oval (outer line of the wheel). Next, draw a curve that matches the curve of that oval starting from the end of the straight line that you just made. The bigger gap between these 2 ovals, the thicker wheels it will carry out out for the car.

Well, cartoon cars drawn somehow come in all different shape and it is mostly depends on personal creativity, you can just use these example to start your own drawing, and then try experimenting with different shapes of your own imagination!
