How to Draw an Aston Martin, Aston Martin Virage

Step 1.

The first step is rather easy. All you have to do is draw out the outline guide of the body shape for the Aston Martin. This sort of looks like a oblong box.

Step 2.

Using the guide shape that you just drew, begin slowly sketching out the actual body of the car. The best place to start is at the roof, and then move your way down and around. You really can't use a ruler here because there is no sharp points or lines, is a rounded vehicle. If you want, you can draw out a box outline of the Aston Martin and then round off the edges as you go along.

Step 3.

As you can see you will start drawing out the windshield, and passenger side window. When that is one draw out the oblong shaped headlights and move to step four.

Step 4.

Draw the passenger door, and then begin sketching out the running boards under the door. Next, draw in the framing for the window, and then draw in passenger seat and the detailing on the fender which crosses onto the door. Don't forget to draw in the handle, as well as the keyhole.

Step 5.

I always draw in the wheels last so what we will do here first is draw out the detailing to the front of the Aston Martin. Start by sketching in the raised hood lines, and then draw in the front grill. Next, continue to sketch out the lining for the spoiler and bumper like so and then add some detailing to the grill plate.

Step 6.

Almost done guys. What you will do now is draw out the tires and rims lining inside of the wheels. Once that is done move to step eight which is also the last drawing step. When drawing out the tires, make sure to have the bottom of each wheel appear to be a little flat. This is done for realism. We all know that tires are not perfectly round when bolted to a car, the weight of the vehicle presses on each tire.

Step 7.

And finally, lets carefully sketch out the rims. These are spoked style rims and the easiest way to draw them out is to draw pie slice shapes all the way around. Start at a mid point and draw a star in the center of the rim. Work around the center so that each space gets drawn in evenly and accurately. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your new Aston Martin.

Step 8.

Here is what the new drawing looks like when you are all done. Now you can choose a shade to color in your brand new car with. It wasn't that hard to draw an Aston Martin, but from the image it sure does look hard.

Has anyone here heard of a luxury sports car named Aston Martian? Well, this vehicle came to my attention yesterday as I was looking through Yahoo News. There is a new line of 2012 Aston Martin’s that will be making headway soon. The Aston Martin was founded back in 1913 by two men, Robert Bamford, and Lionel Martin. The name of the car came from two concepts, the first being the name of a park that Lionel was familiar with called Aston Hill, and the second part of the vehicles name is of course the last name of Mr. Martin himself. When Lionel and Robert decided to go into business together they named their new company “Bamford & Martin”. Soon the two decided to start making their own cars and the first to be manufactured was the Aston Martin. The luxury car was developed by Lionel Martian himself and it was his idea to tale a four cylinder engine and put it in the body of a 1908 Isotta Fraschini. The very first Aston Martin came off the production line in March 1915. Unfortunately car production stopped because of WWI. Both men joined the service and everything was sold to Sopwith Aviation Company. Once the war was over Bramford & Martin started back up again and begun working right away. When Robert Bramford left in 1920, the company revamped and started producing the French Grand Prix. Domesticated Aston Martin’s that everyday people could enjoy started to be produced in 1950, and up to today there has been a total of eighteen different Aston Martin models that has been manufactured and they are; DB2 and DB2/4, DB Mark III, DB4/GT, DB4 GT Zagato, DB5, DB6, DBS and V8s, V8 Zagato, Virage/V8/Vantage, DB7/Vantage, DB7 Zagato, DB AR1, V12 Vanquish/S, DB9, V8/V12 Vantage, DBS V12, One-77, and Raptide. Of course there is also the 2011 and 2012 models that I still need to find names on, other than that, I think I said enough. I never told you that you would be learning "how to draw an Aston Martin", step by step. I think you will like this lesson because it’s on a car, and I haven’t done any tutorials lately based on a specific car. Thanks guys, and be sure to take your time and have a ruler and eraser handy before you even begin. As you draw out the Aston Martin I will ready more lessons that you can enjoy. Peace people!
