Daily Drawing Challenge: Day 26 - Antique [Volkswagen Beetle]

in hive-174301 •  14 days ago 

Hello everyone! Greetings to you all.

Today, I present to you my new pen drawing for the daily drawing challenge day 26.

I've been looking out for old stuffs that is still valuable for some people and I eventually stumble upon this one which suits today's theme "Antique".


Do you remember this car? How valuable it was back then in the 20th century. The simplicity of this car, its rugged design and low cost of purchasing it made it popular worldwide. It also has a seal underneath the body which can be used to run in the water for a long time which made it bouyant.

It was also used back then to provide low-cost transportation for the masses back then. This went on to become the best-selling vehicle in history. Source

Over the years, this model has been developed and update to look more standard and sophisticated.

Till date, some peole find the iconic olden days Volkswagen Beetle a classical and valuable treasure that they wouldn't wanna let go any time soon.

The drawing was done with a blue ballpoint pen on a cardboard paper. Below are my steps:

Firtly, I made outline sketches to bring out the shape of the car

Thereafter, I started building forms by adding shades using hatching and cross hatching

Here is the final work

#DDC is a 30-day drawing challenge that was brought up to enable us enhance our creativity, have daily goals, improve our engagement and get to link up with our fellow artist.

Awesome sketch. Upvoted. You should share this in @planetauto community somehow.


Thanks for the recommendation.

That is great! I was thinking how many pens do you use in a month 🙈

Haha😂 I don't even care to count them. Maybe I should start now!

😅 If you do tell me, I would like to know 😁

Haha, all right. I will.👍😆

What a wonderful incentive for artists. And yes, I remember the Beetle. Almost convinced my parents to purchase one. But too many bodies wouldn't work to fit inside. My favorite color was yellow. Loud and could see it coming a mile away.

Your portrayal of the antique Bug is awesome. Keep up the good work.

Thank you dear. Yeah, it contains only a few people. I wish they bought it, you guys would have definitely enjoyed it. My favourite color was and has always been blue!

yep, we would, but with 7 children and 2 adults....it would have been a tight fit for family travel don't you think?

Ahh, I get that now. Some would have forfeited the space for others to sit comfortably.

Wow , Good to see you with something different this time.

Thanks buddy.
