I don’t normally dedicate a whole Tumblr post to a single art resource, but for this I have to. This is Scott Robertson’s How to Draw book and it’s FANTASTIC. If you’ve ever had trouble drawing vehicles, machines, buildings, and general perspective from your imagination, this book trumps everything. I bought a copy from WonderCon on Saturday and I have never been so pleased with a single art resource book purchase (well, except maybe Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics). 
This book’s aimed primarily at vehicle-drawing beginners and intermediates and extremely accessible. It makes technical drawing easy to understand and gives you tips on how to practice correctly. Additionally, if you have a smart phone or a tablet, you can download an app and freaking WATCH SCOTT ROBERTSON DRAW RIGHT FROM THE PAGE (Think the Japanese Pizza Hut app with Vocaloids, except with vehicle drawing badassery). 
If a copy exists at your local library, or you’re looking to expand your art resource library, this is indispensable. There’s a reason why it has 82 reviews and a 5-star rating right now on Amazon.
TL;DR: Drawing cars sucks? You need this book.
