The history of Bigfoot starts in the mid 1970s. A fellow named Bob Chandler and his wife, where construction contractors that worked in St. Louis. Bob use to use his Ford F250 4x4 for work and play, and when I say play I mean he use to take the wife and kids out on the weekends and go off roading with the pickup truck. After giving the ol’ F250 a beating over the years it eventually broke down and needed repairs, but the problem was there was absolutely no auto parts store that was close by that they could get parts from. So the couple had an idea to open up their very own store that specialized in selling parts and spares for 4x4 trucks, they called it ‘Midwest Four Wheel Drive”. They continued to use their truck for work, but also for promotional purposes as well. They would try out new parts on the 4x4 which eventually lead the truck to increase in size and in performance. Over time the Ford F250 became some what of an attraction for the store, so in 1979 Bob and his wife used their truck to do pull stunts at the Denver car show. Then 1981 rolled around, and boy did they have something in mind that would change the whole concept of “Monster Trucks”. The couple decided it would be fun to drive over a row of scrap cars, amused and confident that they just developed something entirely different; they repeated the same stunt in a stadium show a few months later. Then the inevitable happened, the creation of car crushing Monster Trucks. In 1983, Bigfoot was sponsored by the Ford Motor Company which remains sponsored by them till this day. Over time a lot more Bigfoot’s have been built with one being Bigfoot #17 for use in the UK and in Europe. Many more years have past since then and now there are several monster trucks that exist, and they where all inspired by the king of them all. Family’s can now go and enjoy Monster Jam which is a bunch of monster trucks that do a show in a big stadium and crush tons of cars, jump make shift dirt ramps, and a whole lot more. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw Bigfoot. I wanted to sketch out the first of them all the original looking truck when it first started. The instructions are easy to follow, and I know you will have fun drawing Bigfoot.
