To draw cars, lay out each essential component of an automobile, exaggerate the features to make it more of a cartoon, and add smaller details to make a complete drawing.

Hi, Joel Hickerson, grindog.com. Today we're going to learn how to draw cars. First thing, I'm a cartoonist so I'm going to draw a cartoon car. So I'll start with the road, a plane for the road. To do the old wacky cartoon car, I'm going to start with a tire, a big tire in the back and then a little tire at the front, and not just a perfect circle but maybe an angled circle to kind of give it a little bit of motion. Alright, then do the bottom of the car and bring it out to the front where there's an arc line at the bottom. And again this is very exaggerated. So don't worry about convention, just draw this car however you would want to come down to it. And this is the old classic where the guy is actually poking out of the car a little bit. And we'll have his hands on the steering wheel. And maybe we'll cut a way to the door. And I draw my line lightly because I'm going to draw a lot of lines and when I'm done I'm going to come back and erase the lines that I don't want to keep. So, we'll draw the guy driving his car in there, come up with the engine. Keep it simple. And we do some side pipes too. Remember the basic car elements like you've got headlights, and tail lights. You could get complicated and actually give the car a face if you really wanted to. The main exaggerated would be for instance, might be the front wheel so much smaller than the back wheel. Come back and erase the construction lines. Like I said, if you draw them light enough it's pretty easy to come back and get them out of the main picture. And that's how you draw cars.
