This must be one of the coolest tutorials. This one is about how to draw a Ferrari 458 step by step, and of course, Ferraris are notoriously cool. They are THE dream car, THE supercar. After this, you’ll be able to say you know how to draw a Ferrari.
We obviously must start at the beginning. Draw the wheels. The wheelbase is medium size. Too long and the car would not be too good through corners.
Again, this step is a little tricky. Pay a lot of attention to the shape of the car. It’s not a generic shape, this is a real car. You can use pictures for reference. The waistline is very low . At the back, as always, it looks higher. The overhang is very short at the rear a medium at the front. Draw also the far side wheels.
The third step is to draw the cabin. It is a long smooth curved line. Unlike the last tutorial (the Lamborghini drawing) this cabin is a bit more conventional. Not too low, not too flat.
The fourth step is to draw the windows and the door. These are also a bit different. The glass surface is bigger in the Ferrari. This gives more visibility. And this fact can also mean that the cabin is more spacious than in the lambo. But it’s still a sports car so don’t get your hopes high.
Now for the more exciting steps. In the fifth step, we’ll draw The front grill, the headlights and some detail lines on the side.
The grill is very easy to draw. It is basically a very long upside-down trapezoid. The lights aren’t so easy, but not hard. Just pay attention to its particular shape. Again, use reference pictures if you can. Lastly, the side detail is just a line on the door and it extends a little to the front of the car, just beside the headlights.
The details are the most fun thing to draw. Draw the rims, the side mirrors, the door handle, some extra detail on the lower part of the car –like if it was an air intake, but it isn’t-, a pseudo-Ferrari logo on the grill and the hood. This last thing is the hardest part of this Ferrari drawing. I know I usually don’t draw the hood but this is a very distinctive part of this car that it cannot be missing. So be very careful. The last thing is to draw an air vent rig next to the headlights, in front of the wheels.
This is how to draw a Ferrari 458 Italia. A very cool car, and very cool drawing.
