5 Steps to Sketch a Car with Markers

Step 6 - As a final touch, we go over the sketch once more with a pen just to tighten up those lines. The markers might have blurred some lines that we want to sharpen up again. After that, we're finished!

Here’s my easy process and basic steps on how to sketch a car with markers. It’s pretty straight forward and I use these steps on most of my sketches, whether it be products or cars. I hope you find it useful!
