In this lesson with instructor Charles Hu, you will explore drawing cars. Charles will analyze the proportions and the main components of a car, including the wheels. From there, he will demonstrate sketching classic and modern classic cars using an artist pen and markers.

This lesson belongs to the course Visual Development: Dynamic Sketching. In this 12-week course, Charles Hu will teach you the core fundamentals of dynamic sketching. You will learn to focus on gesture, shape, and structure while drawing various subjects. Charles will first introduce you to the materials needed for the course and give you basic drawing exercises that will help strengthen your hands’ muscle memory. From there, you will learn to manipulate organic, geometric shapes and add surface details. Charles will demonstrate drawing animal skeletons, marine animals, insects, landscapes, cars, and many more. In addition, you will explore sketching in colors using gouache. After this course, you will develop an ability to break down any 3D subject into a 2D structure, and from there, draw with confidence.

Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
