There are so many popular cars out there that collectors turn into limited series by altering the body style. One particular altering style that has become insanely popular is turning your car, truck, or SUV into a lowrider. Lowrider style is when car owners install a modified suspension system that allows the automobile sit extremely low to the ground. In some cases a hydraulic system will be installed to enable the car or truck to go up or down by remote control. Although any vehicle can be turned into a lowrider, classic cars from the 60’s, 50’s, 40’s are the original ones that are altered. Certain cars from the 50’s already had a low riding body structure so they would only be altered with a mild tweak. One of my favorite cars from the early years is the 1964 Chevy Impala. I know what your thinking, this vehicle is so typical and favorite to many people. I don’t like it because it’s popular, I like the model because it is super classic looking and I love big cars that have structural detail. Oh my god, I totally forgot to tell you guys what this lesson will be on. I am going to teach you "how to draw a lowrider" step by step. When people say lowrider, the “R” is often said sounding like an “A”. So instead of hearing the “r”, the word ends up sounding like “lowrida”. The lowrider style was originally brought to the attention of pop culture America by the Mexican-Americans that lived in Los Angeles, and they were commonly known as “Chicanos”. Before anyone knew it, “lowriding” became an urban culturing phenomenon throughout California. Anyways, I hope you guys will like this tutorial. I spent an awful long time sketching it out for all of you to enjoy. I have to depart for a sec but I will return with one more tutorial for you all. Have fun learning “how to draw a lowrider” step by step. Peace out and happy drawing.
