How to Draw Cars Like a Pro, 2nd Edition

When my husband and I first met, he was an avid car artist. He loved to spend time drawing cars of all different makes and models, and they always appeared to precise and perfect. As a more organic artist who drew mostly people or anthropomorphic animals (and a wide range between the two, depending upon which comics I was interested in at the time), I couldn’t get how he could get the angles and lines so well. It turns out that he had a secret—car drawing manuals.

How to Draw Cars Like a Pro is one such book. It is filled with plenty of how-to descriptions about how to draw the perfect car, and dozens of examples of how car drawings should appear. The paperback book is widely considered a helpful and effective tool to use when cartooning, drawing real life cars, or doing caricatures in between. You get to really know the body and style of the basic car model while you doodle, learning how to really draw the classics and build upon them in your art. 200 examples from the best artists in the industry are also provided for quick reference.

You can get a copy of this book at Amazon.com for $14.89.
