Cars are so cool and I just love drawing them (sometimes). For my next tutorial I will be showing you "how to draw a corvette", step by step. The corvette is a sports car that has been twinkling in the eyes of thousands of people since the very first model of a corvette hit dealership parking lots back in 1953. The body style of the Chevrolet Corvette always stayed the same over the years. I mean if you think about it the only thing that changes is the shape of the car to keep up to date with the changing years. Corvettes come in either a two door coupe or a two door convertible frame style. The infamous arched front fenders that we have associated this sports cars name with were only made in the late sixties to early eighties. I have drawn a 1979 corvette because I wanted the picture of the car to match the mental image we have of the Corvette. Believe it or not, the vett, used to have chrome bumpers and deep headlight wells that is commonly seen on some old muscle cars. I guess back then that was the basic style for any new sports car creation. I myself think that the older models are the best looking. When the production and introduction of the General Motors or GM vehicle was put in the market, it was the only sports car in America that was built with only two seats. It would take decades before another sports car was manufactured to challenge the uniqueness of the Corvette. Did you know that the design of the corvette was created by a gentleman named Harley Earl? It’s true, Harley Earl was a guy that loved sports cars and because of that GM hired Earl to design Americas first two seat sports car to compete with the Nash-Healy which was an expensive British made vehicle that was sold to Americans back in the fifties. An interesting fact about the Nash-Healy is that it was the first sports car made since the Great Depression. The corvette was the car made from fiberglass and the car lacked expectations in the first productions of the model. It lacked so much that the Corvette had no way of standing out alongside the British and Italian sports cars of the day. This sports car was on its way to becoming a footnote in automotive history. The immediate decision to redesign and reproduce the corvette was made when a man named Zora Arkus-Duntov joined the engineering department of GM’s facility. He changed the cars design so much; he was labeled the “Father of the Corvette”. The new and improved Vett now had a V-8 engine with phenomenal performance that stood up against the other two seated sports cars manufactured in Italy and in Britain. This tutorial will show you how to draw a Corvette car step by step. When you are done you can color your car any shade you like to match the mental image of your dream vehicle. I shall return again my friends with more drawing fun.
