When drawing a Honda Civic, it help to think of drawing the car in shapes, as opposed to one overwhelming object. Learn about drawing hoods, wheel wells and more with help from an award-winning artist and grant recipient in this free video on drawing a Honda Civic.
Hello I am Jacklyn Laflamme from jacklynlaflamme.com. In this clip, we are going to learn how to draw a Honda Civic. So we are going to start here with the hood of the car, and just draw a few basic guidelines to start. And we are going to draw a line coming down. And we are going to just go back up here to the windshield just, it is almost like drawing rectangles. If you think about drawing just in different shapes it is not quite as overwhelming of having to think of drawing the whole entire car. Sometimes you draw just to try and look and separate the different shapes. So now we are going to go back here we are going to put in the tires. Because it is in perspective it is not necessarily going to be a circle. We are going to do an oval shape back here for this back tire, and then we are going to draw in a little bit of the perspective. And we are going to have a line coming here for the bottom of the car, and it is just going to come right in like this. We're going to continue this line to create the wheel well back here. And we are going to come in and do the front tire, again we are not going to do a complete circle, because we are not going to see that much of the tire. We are going to come around here, and we are going to flip around, and do one continuous line that is going to create the wheel well, and the fender coming down in the front of the car. I'm just going to do a line going back into here, and we will just do one more line coming around here to create the front of the fender here. And in here we are going to come again like I said just think of it as different shapes. I'm going to do a rectangle, and just fill it in, and that is going to become the front grill. Now we are going to start joining these lines here on the hood, and we are going to just put a couple of little kind of odd shapes in here to create the headlamps on the front of the car. Again just fill in these headlamps, and we are going to bring a line back here, a couple of lines down here to create the doors, and we are just going to put one more shape back here to create the windows. A couple of little lines coming down just to create a little bit of detail on the hood, a few little lines here to create the glass, and really quickly we are just going to add in then some lines to finish out these tires. And before you know it with a few simple shapes you have a Honda Civic. Thank you very much, this is Jacklyn Laflamme.
