Time needed: 1 hour
How to Draw a Dump Truck
- Sketch the outlines of the cab and dump body.
Clear lines must be used here. If you want your skill in creating smooth and crisp lines to improve, then this is just the perfect exercise for you.
- Detail the cab.
First, draw the window using short lines as in my example. Next, draw a line separating the top of the cabin from the bottom.
- Detail the front part of the truck.
Create the outlines of the door and the front part of the front arch. Don’t forget to add the handle. Next, add the air intake grille with a series of straight and short horizontal lines.
- Complete the front arch.
To do this, use really simple lines as in my example. In addition, draw rectangular parts that will make your dump truck look more convincing and realistic.
- Finish detailing the front of the truck.
Finish detailing the front of the truck. Using clear lines (yes, almost the entire guide consists of such lines) draw the stairs and railings. Without these parts, the driver simply cannot get into this giant car.
- Detail the dump body.
Do this with long, clear lines. These strips are called stiffeners and help keep the dump body stronger. Don’t forget to add details at the bottom.
- Draw the wheels.
These are probably the largest wheels that have ever appeared on the pages of Drawingcars.net. Try to make them look as round as possible, and don’t forget about the tread pattern.
- Draw the rims.
As you can see, this part of the truck is made up of a large number of circular lines located within each other. Try to keep the rims pattern proportional and symmetrical.
- Add some finishing touches.
Erase all unnecessary guidelines if any, and add missing details. For example, we added elements of the rear suspension.
- Add some shadows.
Without shadows and highlights, your dump truck drawing will look too flat and unrealistic. To add shadows, use dense hatching like in my example.
