The modern automobile was invented in the late 1800s. Ever since, the car has been a beloved part of our technological culture.

It wasn’t long before cartoonists were personifying cars and other vehicles by giving them eyes, mouths, and personalities of their own. This type of image has become increasingly popular since the release of Disney’s feature film Cars in 2006.

Would you like to be able to draw your very own cute cartoon car? Now you can, using this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

All you will need to draw a cartoon car is a piece of paper and a pencil, pen, or marker. You may also want to have some crayons, colored pencils, or markers handy to color your finished drawing.

As you follow the step-by-step drawing guide, you will notice that each step is accompanied by an illustration. In the picture, new lines added in that step are highlighted in blue. Sketch lightly at first, as you will likely need to erase some of your early lines before you finish the drawing.

It’s time to put the pedal to the medal and draw a cartoon car. Gentlemen, start your engines…ready, set, go!
