The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Draw a circle for the car's front tire. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a lid.
Step 2: To the left, make a small mark to determine how long you want your car to be. Now draw a horizontal line from the tire to the mark for the bottom part of the car. Use a ruler or any straight edge if you want a perfectly straight line.
Step 3: On the right, draw another circle for the car's rear tire. Use the four-marks method again to draw this circle. Keep the tires at the same level. If you traced a circular object for the front tire, trace that same object for the rear tire.
Step 4: Inside each tire, draw a smaller circle for the car's hubcaps. You can trace a small, circular object for the hubcaps too. Make sure to position the object directly in the center.
Step 5: Draw an arc around the top part of the front tire for the edge of the car's front fender. Follow the path of the tire as you draw the arc. Sketch lightly and only darken the line when you get the shape right.
Step 6: Draw another arc around the rear tire for the bottom edge of the car's rear fender. Make this arc the same size as the front one. Follow the path of the tire as you draw it.
Step 7: To the left of the front tire, draw a small shape for the car's front bumper. The shape of the bumper should be similar to a square with curved sides and a shorter bottom edge.
Step 8: Above the bumper, draw a line that curves to the right for the car's hood. This line should stop at about the right edge of the front tire.
Step 9: To the right of the rear tire, draw another square-like shape for the car's rear bumper. The rear bumper should have rounder edges. Te bottom edge should slope a bit.
Step 10: Above the rear bumper, draw a line that goes up the curves to the left for the car's trunk.
Step 11: Above the line for the hood, draw a sloping line for the car's windshield. Above the line for the trunk, draw a line that slopes less than the windshield for the rear glass. Connect both sloping lines with a horizontal line at the top to create the roof of the car.
Step 12: Above the front bumper, draw a triangular shape with a vertical line through the middle for the car's headlight.
Step 13: To the right of the windshield, draw a big trapezoid for the driver's side window. The left and top sides of this shape should be parallel to the edges of the car's windshield and roof.
Step 14: To the right, draw another trapezoid for the rear window of the car. The bottoms of the windows shouldn't stretch too far down, as this is where the car doors would be.
Step 15: On the lower, left corner of the front window, draw a small, curved shape with a line across it for the side mirror. On the lower, right side of each window, draw a small, rectangular shape for the car door handles.
Step 16: Above the rear bumper, draw a curved shape with horizontal line through it for the car's tail light.
Step 17: Using a pen or marker, carefully draw over the lines to make your car drawing permanent. After the ink dries, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your car drawing using colored pencils, markers or crayons! Color your car any way you'd like. For this look, use blue for the main body. Use dark blue for the section above the tires and for the door handles. Use gray for the bumpers and hubcaps. Color the windows light blue but leave a few streaks blank for reflection. Use black for the tires. Use yellow-orange and red for the lights. Don't forget to pause the video to draw at your own pace.
