How to Draw a Race Car

Step 1.

In this first step you will start it by drawing out the guidelines and shapes the first being a narrow oval. From that you will add the rest of the guidelines that are sideways and slanted. You will also form the shape of the roof and windshield.

Step 2.

In this next step you will draw out the shape of the front of the car starting with the hood and wheel wells. Draw out the fender all the way down and then the shapes of the windows. Draw out the hint of the trunk.

Step 3.

Once the basic frame lining is done you will start adding the line art that will give it shape and texture. Draw the beginning line for the rear tire and then the frame for the window. There is an arched pin strip that is located in the front of the rear wheel well, and travels to the back.

Step 4.

Now that your frame is drawn out better than ever you will now add the guard bars that are inside of the race car. Add the shapes of the front head lights and fog lights and then start drawing out the numbered stencil that will read "48" and "LOWE'S". Add the shape of the fin on the trunk and then move to the next step.

Step 5.

Now you will draw out the circle shaped tires as well as the bolt holes. Finish the decal lines and the roof and hood detailing lines. Once that is done you are ready to move onto the next step.

Step 6.

Well yo have made it to your last drawing step and what you will do is draw out the decal letters on the hood that spell "LOWE'S". Add more detailing lines inside of the tires and then draw out the mesh that is on the drivers side window. You will finish off this drawing lesson by drawing out the rest of the definition lines as seen here and then erase all the guidelines and shapes.

Step 7.

Once you r finished your drawing should look like this. All you have to do now is color it in and your done. You have just learned how to draw a NASCAR race car step by step. I hope you had a butt load of fun, I will be back in a bit.
