Today, we will dive into the world of big wheels. Yes, that’s true! Today, we’ll learn how to draw a monster truck. Before we start drawing, let us tell you some cool facts.
Do you know that the wheels of a monster truck can be as big as a normal car? A monster truck is as big as two big elephants. You must be wondering why they are so big. The answer is simple. A monster truck goes over big rocks easily and is used for adventurous rides.
So get ready as we’re about to go on a ride.

How to Draw a monster truck
Now is the time to go on a ride on a monster truck and explore nature. This guide aims to assist you in drawing by providing really effective steps. So buckle up and enjoy the process.
Step 1: Draw the baseline
The baseline supports the entire weight of the monster truck. We’ll draw a horizontal rectangle in the middle of the paper to draw the baseline. The corners of the rectangle must be curved. The curved corners reflect an artistic touch.
Step 2: Draw the body
To draw the body, we’ll draw a rectangle on top of the baseline of the monster truck. This rectangle represents the body of the monster truck.
To add a bit of flair, gently curve the top left corner of the rectangle. The top right corner will be pointy. The body shouldn’t be longer than the baseline of the monster truck. If it gets longer, erase it and draw it again.
Step 3: Draw the cabin
The cabin is the uppermost portion of the monster truck. To draw the cabin, we need to draw a slanted rectangular structure.
To begin with, we will draw a slanted line on top of the truck’s body near the left side. At the point where the slanted line ends, we will draw a straight horizontal line parallel to the truck’s body. We’re almost there.
Now, draw a vertical line that joins the horizontal line to the body of the truck. These three lines altogether make a closed structure. This closed structure is the cabin of the monster truck.
Draw similar lines inside this closed structure, as shown in the image. These lines provide more thickness and strength to the cabin. Our cabin is all set.
Step 4: Draw lights
Like other vehicles, a monster truck also has lights in the front and back.
We will draw a semicircle on the front side of the truck body to draw the front lights. The semicircle looks like a tennis ball that is cut in half.
We will draw a small vertical rectangle for the backlights on the back of the truck’s body.
Step 5: Draw the back bar
The back bar is present behind the cabin of the truck. This back bar has space for the people to enjoy the scenes standing at the back of the truck. We will draw three rectangles to make the back bar.
We’ll begin by drawing a horizontal rectangle right behind the cabin of the truck. The length of this rectangle is greater than the cabin. The upper part of the rectangle must be rounded.
Starting from the base of the first rectangle, we’ll draw the second rectangle along the length of the truck’s body.
To complete the back bar, we’ll make the last rectangle that is slanted, as shown in the image.
Step 6: Draw wheels
The wheels of a monster truck are way bigger than a normal vehicle. No wonder it is named as a monster truck.
We have to draw the front and the back wheels. It is obvious that wheels are round, but how to make a round shape?
We will mark a dot under the bottom left side of the baseline. This dot will be the center of the circle. From this dot, we will mark four more dots (top, bottom, right, and left) at the same distance from the center dot. Now, gently connect all four dots with each other by making smooth curves. Once we’re done with this, our circle will be ready.
If this seems difficult, we can also use any round lid to serve this purpose. Inside this circle, we will draw another circle. This will be the front wheel of the truck.
We will repeat the same procedure for the back wheel. The back wheel is present on the bottom right side of the truck baseline.
Step 7: Draw the wheel connecter
A wheel connector is an important component of the truck that connects the wheels to the axle of the truck.
To draw the wheel connector, we will draw a horizontal rectangle in the middle of the wheels that connects the wheels. Beneath this rectangle, we’ll add two more slanted lines crossing and overlapping each other. The shape of these lines is like an “X.” Our wheel connector is ready.
Step 8: The monster truck is ready
Kudos to the young minds! Within a few minutes, we have drawn an amazing monster truck that is ready to cruise the most difficult paths. It is an easy process, and we’re confident that you followed each step carefully.
The real fun is about to begin. Are you curious to learn more about it?
Taking your drawing to the next level
As we know, there’s no limit to imagination and creativity. The more we use it, the better we get at it.
Our drawing is all done, but it seems too basic. We wish to upgrade it and make it look more appealing to our eyes.
But the question is, how do we do this?
Young artists! No need to worry. We are here to help. We’ll give you some ideas about how to upgrade your drawing. By following these ideas, you’ll have a beautiful drawing.
Adding background to your drawing
Every picture has a story. The story becomes more clear and obvious if it has any perspective. For our drawing to have a perspective, we need to add a background to our drawing.
Remember that you can add any type of background to your drawing. It has no limits. All you need to do is to unleash your creativity.
In our case, we will draw mountains as the background. Now, it feels like our monster truck is cruising through the mountains. It looks realistic. This is amazing.
Adding colors to your drawing
It’s time to give our drawing a lively touch. We have added all the details, but where are the colors? Doesn’t our drawing seem odd without colors?
Let’s pick up the brush and cast a bright spell on our drawing.
You can use any color to fill up the monster truck, as you’re the boss here. It’s all about preference. Here’s the tip for the best results: just color your truck nicely and tidy, no matter your color.
P.S Bonus Tips
We have finished our drawing, and we’re confident yours is completed, too. Remember, young artists, creativity is like a rocket; it can go as high as u want it to go. So why not use it to its fullest? You can customize your drawing according to your preference.
Imagine you own a garden and are in charge of adding things to it. You’ll add multiple kinds of swings, plants, and whatnot. Similarly, you own this drawing. Add anything you want to it. Feel at home and express your imagination using markers and colors.
We’ll assist you in this also. You can add a flag on top of the monster truck with your name. Imagine this flag waving and giving a cool impression about the owner, that is you.
You can also add a shining sun in the background. Draw beams of light coming out of the sun. These are just a few ideas that you can apply. Experiment with your drawing with different ideas. Make a unique drawing.
That’s it! We’ve gone through a really simple and effective process of drawing a monster truck. It took us only a few minutes to have an amazing drawing. We started by making the baseline of the truck and then added a body on top of the baseline. On this body, we drew the cabin of the truck. Then, we drew two lights (front and back). After that, we drew the back bar. For the final touch, we made the wheels and a wheel connector. These were the steps for the basic monster truck drawing.
Later, we cast magical spells on our drawing and upgraded it. Upgrading the drawing is a fun part.
Drawing is a fun activity. It should be enjoyed thoroughly. If you feel your drawing isn’t up to the mark, practice again. Eventually, you’ll reach perfection.
