Q: What should I be careful with for drawing side view sketch?

I can say that proportion is the most important element for drawing side view sketch!

In terms of car design,  the proportion in side view sketch will express outline of your own designed car, so that it always involves using correct proportions for clearly proposing and presenting your ideas to viewers.

And, you also should be careful for drawing long stroke lines.

There is a significant difference between car design sketches and art dessins.

Please concentrate to draw vivid lines with good momentums.

The momentum of line is created from lines in a long stroke.

However, drawing those lines might be hard for novices.

In the beginning, please try not to over think it! I encourage you to practice drawing lines confidently with long strokes!
