Hi, I'm Dori Decamillis from Red Dot Gallery. Today, we're going to learn how to draw a moving car. Alright, for a moving car, I'm first going to draw a soft outline of the car, itself, not a whole lot of definition. And I won't need a whole lot of definition, really. A moving car in a drawing looks best, looks like it's moving, if it's blurry. But I do need some general features. Back window, get a little, few lights on the side. Now, what makes a moving car look moving, is to make it blurry. And to make the things that are around it, blurry. Especially, the things around it, because you're passing them by, really fast. They are going to look like a blur. We'll start with the car, itself, I want to give it a cast shadow underneath. And I'm just going to keep my lines pretty soft. To give it a sense of, not being able to see it real well. Since the car, the wheels are a dark shade, I can blur them up, slightly. Having the little lines, going out the back, is kind of a typical, generic way to do it. And you can do a little bit of that. Also, having lines, kind of, coming across it. Probably the best way though, is to have blurry objects in the background, that you're whizzing by. I don't really necessarily need to know, what they are. But as long as they have sort of a horizontal look to them. If you look at a picture of a car speeding by something, or anything, going fast. Or, if you move your camera really fast by something. You'll see, everything looks kind of, like this, a horizontal blur. You can even have this person sort of, disappearing into a blur. I want to darken up in a few places, just to make it a little more interesting, and a little easier to see. That's how you draw a moving car.
