Monster trucks are powerful automotive behemoths. These terrifying creatures of steel, rubber and smoke barrel across dirt arenas and crush regular sized cars beneath their monstrous wheels. Creating an illustration of a monster truck can be an activity for any person who is a fan of these gigantic trucks. Like most automotive illustrations, a drawing of a monster truck can be created with a few simple geometric shapes that are placed together to create a simple framework.
Things You'll Need
- Black ink pen
- Kneaded eraser
Draw a large, long rectangle to create the body of the monster truck. Create the large characteristic wheels of the monster truck with two large circles under the left and right side of the body of the truck. Add two smaller circles inside the wheels. Place these one inside the other.
Draw the cab of the monster truck with square shape coming up from the middle top of the truck body. Add a triangle to the left side of the square. Draw a curved line on the body of the truck just above each wheel. Add a small square shape for the truck bumper to the bottom right corner of the truck. Add the door handle with a small rectangle just below the bottom right corner of the cab. Create the headlights with a rectangle attached to the left side of the body of the car.
Create the doors on the monster truck with a vertical line coming down from the bottom left corner of the triangle shape on the cab. Add another vertical line coming down from the bottom right side of the cab and continuing down across the body. Add a small horizontal line in between the two wheels. Create the side view mirror with a small square shape at the bottom left corner of the cab.
Ink the monster truck illustration with your black ink pen. Let the ink on illustration dry and carefully erase your pencil strokes.
Tips & Warnings
- Use a compass or an overturned coffee cup to create the wheels
- Be sure to hold the illustration down firmly as you erase the pencil lines so that you do not accidentally crumble or fold the paper.
