When you know what you’re doing, you can have a great drawing.”
So here is my first sketch. I know what I’m doing with this car. It’s simple and functional. The main feature is that I’m drawing a classic car in real time.
The main features here are the windows, side windows, and headlights. The car has a wide, wide windshield, but it’s a three-door car; therefore its windshield area and its side windows are different. The windows are angled, so they face the driver. The side windows are round and wide.
The side windows should be bigger than the main windows, so I drew them in that way to make them large enough to use full-size drawing software, like AutoCAD.
I chose to draw the front end of the car with the windows all the way up, because that’s what the photographer is going to see.
For the side windows, I drew them down, but my friend, Paul, pointed out that this means you can also draw them as straight up and down as you want. We have a few other photos here that show the front end and the side as they are.
When the car is upright, it should look like this.
Paul made me think that he had to make the cars taller; however, when he saw what I had drawn he said, “You can just make them taller than that on purpose, if that’s what is needed.” But it is easier for me to draw tall cars.
I like the look of the hood. I’m sure it’s difficult to do all of the hoods I’ve drawn. But I’ve made sure that everything is visible and that there is nothing under the front hood.
I knew the hood was going to be my first challenge. I wanted it so big that the passenger side would have a window that was going to completely block a camera from the front.
It was hard to see where to draw the windows: The headlamps are too far back on the car, the side windows are slightly out of focus, the side windows are too close to the ground, and the windshield is too wide to make it work. But I was able to draw them all in a way that makes them clear when the car is upright and makes them fit together properly.
To make sure that I got them looking good, I had Paul cut them in all different ways. I was able to find a particular shape
