A number of guests have e-mailed me about posting tutorials on drawing vehicles. Since there are a million of them available on the Internet, I’ve gone and selected a choice few that illustrate the proper techniques needed to render your cars, trucks and specialty vehicles for use in your own comics. By following the steps within the tutorials, you’ll be adding some amazing looking vehicles alongside your characters.
These tutorials are done in traditional pencil and paper as well as digital with a Wacom tablet or a mouse. The process is basically the same.
