Automotive Line Drawings

Portfolio of B&W or color lineart and technical line drawings.

technical line drawing of car

This portfolio page contains line art diagrams and technical images and illustrations that were done as vector lineart in Adobe Illustrator, or as pen-and-ink using a rapidograph on cold-press illustration board or vellum. Line illustrations are typically used at a smaller reproduction size, when clarity and simplicity is important, and they are usually done as B&W or 2-color artwork. Form is added to these images by alternating line-weight to give dimension and depth to the subject. A technical line drawing illustration is especially well suited for use as an icon or spot image of products, simple machinery or single components. To see how these line illustrations are created please check out our latest perspective drawing and vector line drawing tutorials.
