# How to Draw a Mack Truck

## Step 1.

Now, I had a hard time thinking how I should make the digital steps for this since it's the first time I draw a vehicle, let alone do a tutorial on it . But I remembered a sketching trick they taught us in college . You begin by drawing geometrical shapes in which the object you're drawing will fit , then you make smaller shapes and go into detail.

## Step 2.

Draw the outline of the truck inside the shapes .

## Step 3.

Finally draw the details inside the outline .

## Step 4.

Your sketch should look roughly like this .

## Step 5.

We're going to start from the top and go down. Begin by shading the top part (I have no idea what you call it) with a 2B pencil. Just a light grey.

## Step 6.

Blend everything with a brush (paint brush) or with a blending stump . After blending make a darker second layer with a 3B .

## Step 7.

Blend again and make a 3rd darker layer with a 4B , then make some details . So you need 3 different layers of grey in total. You may be asking , why didn't I use the 4B from the beginning ? Well simply because you have more control over your surface , you can balance the black/white/grey much more efficiently . Also everything looks cleaner and more smooth , especially if you're working on textured paper .

## Step 8.

The same thing applies to all the parts of the truck , 3 layers with blending in between . I only made 2 steps for each of the remaining parts because I saw no point explaining the same thing five times . The side of the truck has some reflections of the road , make the blurry .

## Step 9.

The bottom part is the reflection , which is black, same goes for the part under the mirror.

## Step 10.

Now make the first layer for the bottom part with the wheels .

## Step 11.

This is actually the SECOND LAYER . I got confused in the scanning process .

## Step 12.

This is the third layer on the bottom part and the first layer for the hood and windshield .

## Step 13.

Make the second and third layers along with the reflections .

## Step 14.

Now make the first layer on the bumper and front wheel .

## Step 15.

Add the rest of the layers and final details.

## Step 16.

Finally, draw a little shadow under the truck .
