Monster trucks are specially fitted pickup trucks and SUVs used in competitions. Most monster trucks are twelve feet wide, twelve feet tall, and have sixty-six inch tires. Monster truck competitions usually feature a race and a freestyle event, in which the trucks jump over obstacles, do wheelies and flips, and crush other vehicles.
The appeal of monster trucks is not lost on the animation industry. Numerous children’s movies and series have featured monster truck characters, such as the 2006 Discovery Kids series Bigfoot Presents: Meteor and the Mighty Monster Trucks. In 2016, Paramount and Nickelodeon’s animated film Monster Trucks was released, featuring a truck inhabited by an actual monster.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Monster Truck
Begin by drawing a parallelogram – A rectangle in which the top line is shorter than the bottom line. This will form the truck’s windshield.
Extend a straight line downward from the end of the truck bed. From this line, draw a short, straight line parallel with the top of the truck bed, then another straight line extending downward. This outlines the back of the truck. To outline the bottom of the truck frame, complete with the wheel wells, draw a short, straight line, a curved line, and a straight line, followed by another curved line and straight line.
Draw the truck’s front bumper. Begin by drawing two long, parallel curved lines. Connect the lines using short, slightly curved lines. Add detail to the corner of the bumper using short curved lines.
Draw a smaller parallelogram within the windshield, and a smaller rectangle within the passenger window.
Draw a chevron pattern across the surface of each tire, giving the tires tread. To draw this pattern, extend two parallel lines diagonally from the side of the tire to its center. Connect parallel lines from the other side, on the opposite diagonal. Repeat this pattern across the surface of the tire.
Draw two small rectangles on the front of the truck to indicate headlights. Draw a larger rectangle between the headlights to form the grill.
Draw the axle between the front wheels. Begin with a circle. Extend parallel lines from the circle to the wheel. As needed, connect the lines using a short, curved line. Draw a curved line through the circle.
