It’s the turn of a very special car, one that would appear no to be apt for what it does really well: Lap times.
Let’s draw a Dodge Viper ACR.
This car shocked the super car world at the time because it was so good for driving on a race track. No one expected it to be so because it’s a Viper. Vipers are sketchy to drive, unstable and tail happy. But it came out beating hypercars way more expensive an sophisticated. Cars like the Mclaren P1 and Porsche 918. Suffice to say that this thing has more lap records than any other production automobile.
Okay then. First of all I have to say that this drawing will require a lot of patience from your part, it’s very elaborate because of all the details it has. Things like wings, spoilers and intakes. Here we go…
Now draw the body and the far side wheels. Complete also the wheels closer to you. This step is usually done on a latter stage but for this car we’ll do it here. You’ll understand why in a moment…
The next step is to draw the cabin. This car has a very small one compared to the average. Draw also the side vent and the exhaust exit just in front of the rear tire. Side exhaust pipes are a very cool feature, you can make any car cool by adding this.
It’s time to draw the windshield and side window. At the front draw the headlights, the outer shape of the grill and a line above the first one to give some form to the hood. It’s curvy.
As mentioned before, this car has a lot going on, this is why we drew the far side wheels early on. We continue then by drawing the side mirrors, the door panel and a HUUUUUUGE wing at the back. This is one of the aero resources that allow it to go through corners faster than most cars.
Almost done. Here we draw the elements that complement the headlight (lamp and “L.E.D.” edge), air vent on top of the front wheel; this let’s air out and reduces pressure inside the wheel well which can cause the front to lift (not good). Draw the cross-themed detail inside the grill, it’s a Dodge thing. Finally ad an air intake on top of the grill and another beside it, under the headlight.
Yesss! The last step! After this we’ll be done for good.
Draw some air vents on the hood, these go on both sides of the hood’s intake. Draw the rims spokes, you can make your own design if you want. Draw the side exhaust tipt too, you know… the one next to the rear tire. Lastly draw a couple of small wings at the front next to the wheels and draw a front splitter and it’s support rods.
If you made it to the end YOU ARE A LEGEND!!!
I think this is the hardest drawing yet. It requires effort and patience. The full race car-spec aero configuration on this car makes it hard to draw.
I hope you enjoyed it.
Was it hard to you?
