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.
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!

Draw a short curved line downwards from where the original lines connect. On the other side, draw a longer, more rounded curved line from the corresponding point.
Add details to the windows by drawing two curved, parallel lines across each. When complete, this will look like reflections on the windows.
Give the tires some dimensions. Do this by drawing a curved line to the right of each tire. This produces a three dimensional effect. Also, draw the rear bumper using a short, curved line.
Add detail to the body of the car. Draw two curved lines extending from the front windshield to outline the hood. Draw two more curved lines extending downward from the left window to outline the door, and draw a teardrop shape for the door handle. Draw curves around each of the wheels.
Draw a smaller circle within each circle. Add depth to the bumper using a long, horizontal curved line and a short, vertical curved line.
Within each eye circle, draw two more circles. Shade the innermost circle. Draw two curved lines within the mouth, one on top and one on the bottom. Shade between these lines.
