URIs to Ping

The following services will automatically be pinged/notified when you publish posts. Not when you edit previously published posts, as WordPress does by default.

NB: this list is synchronized with the original update services list.

Separate multiple service URIs with line breaks:

Ping log

These are the lastest actions performed by the plugin.

Step by step drawing cars

Drawing is a fun way of fulfilling your leisure time and if you can make some money from it, then it is even more pleasing. If you like cars and want to learn how to draw them, there are a couple of steps that you can follow:

Step by step drawing cars

First, start from the outline. Draw a small rectangle for the top and a big rectangle for the bottom. In this way you get the basic shape of the body of the car, but be careful to draw it with thin lines, not dark and bold, because you are only drawing a sketch of the car, that when you later finish the whole car, are going to have to erase these lines, so the car would look more appealing and more complete.

The next step is to draw the wheels, so draw one whole circle in the front and one in the back, and half circle next to each other so the two wheels will seem that they are on the other side of the car. It doesn’t matter if the circles are precise, because you can always add some shades behind the wheels so it would seem as they are moving.

Now you can add lights in the front and in the back of the big rectangle in order to signify where is the front and where is the back of the car. For the front draw slightly larger lights, that can have a square or cylinder form or any other form that you like, and slightly smaller lights for the back. The next step is to draw the doors of the car so people can enter it  Draw a straight line, from the top to the bottom, in the middle of the small and big rectangle, and in the back of the big rectangle only draw a straight line also from the top of it but to the back wheel and be careful it doesn’t exceed the rectangle and it doesn’t reach the back wheel, but it is just above it. In this way you just drew the front and the back door, just add knobs so it would look more authentic.

The only thing that is left for you to add to the car, so it would look complete, is a steering wheel. Draw the steering wheel in the front of the inside part of the car i.e. inside the front window draw a small ellipse shaped circle that ends with a oblique line that touches the right bottom end of the small rectangle. Congratulations, you just finished your first drawing of a car. You can add some curves at the top of the front and at the top of the back of the car in order to give it a more original look. Give a final touch to the car by adding some color by your own choice and erase any lines that you don’t need.

  1. Can you discuss the “make some money from it part” in more depth. I am assuming that unless you are in the industry of engineering in Detroit or advertising then your money making stills would be limited at best. Still drawing cars is fun and challenging even if you don’t get paid.
