In the last month, I’ve done about 10 different 3D car parts sketches and put them on my website “Cars”. In this tutorial, I will be learning how to draw car parts in Adobe Illustrator CS4. In this tutorial, I will be doing a car body design and 3D car parts.
Before we jump into the series, I would like to remind you that you should have your CAD setup set to vector and have an appropriate graphics program on your computer. If you do not have one then, you can download CAD Sketchup . If you are using Photoshop CC, I also recommend using Adobe Illustrator CC or Inkscape .
If you don’t already have your CAD setup set up, it is highly recommended (you can find the link to download CAD Sketchup here ). Once you have your software setup, you can follow along with the following video tutorials.

If we start with the body design, we will be using Photoshop to do the body design. First of all we need to open Photoshop. Please do check out this tutorial on how to open Photoshop CS4
We are going to be opening the first photo on this page. First of all, we are going to select the layer you want to use for car body. In our case, we are going to be using the layer called “Body”
You are now going to set the layer as “Active.” Then, click on “Layer Attributes” in the upper right. You are going to change the “Blend mode” to Screen and change the opacity layer to “40.”
With “Layer Attributes” selected, you can now create the shape of the car. To do this, we will be using the Rectangle Tool.
Click on that rectangle tool and then drag it to any new shape you would like to create. Once you are done, select the “Shapes Panel” from the Tools sidebar.
This is going to be the panel within which you can edit and manipulate the shape. Simply select the shape you want and then click on it to open the “Shape Properties window.”
Once you select your shape, let go of any buttons within the shapes panel by selecting them with the mouse and move to where you want to place the shape and press “OK.”
If you wanted, you can change some of the colors within the shapes panel
