Let's get started!

Art Supplies I Used for this Tutorial

For this drawing, I used the following art supplies:

Reference Photo I used for this Tutorial

For this tutorial, I used the following photo shared by @protectivefilmsolutions on Instagram to get the proportions of the Porsche 992 GT3 RS correct.

How to Draw a Porsche 911 GT3 RS?

To draw a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, I started by making a sketch. Then I colored all black and grey parts with alcohol markers. Next, I colored the main body in a beautiful greyish green. And to finish it off I added a few details and white highlights.

Step 1: Sketch the Outline of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The sketch is by far the most important part of your drawing if you want it to look realistic and it can be quite difficult. Luckily there are many shortcuts you can take to make it easier to make an accurate sketch.

I use the grid method for example. I place a grid over the reference photo using Photoshop and then I draw that same grid on my paper. 

The grid divides it into many squares so I only need to focus on one square at a time instead of the whole photo.

Now it's time to start sketching. I usually start on the left and draw clockwise if that makes sense.

I start with the basic shape of the car. When that's done I start adding in all the details.

Before you start coloring with markers, make sure to erase your sketch until you can just about see it to prevent the sketch from showing through in the end.

Step 2: Color All Pure Black Parts

Sometimes the sketch looks pretty overwhelming. So what I like to do then is to color all pure black parts. For some reason this makes the drawing look a lot less complicated for me.

To color the pure black parts I use the Black (9909) Graph'it alcohol marker which is darker than any other black alcohol marker. You can also first color it with a Black (xb) Promarker and then color over it with a black water-based marker to make it darker.

Step 3: Color the Shadow of the GT3 RS

Next up is the shadow.

I first colored the whole shadow with Ice Grey 1. Then I colored the inner part with Ice Grey 4, leaving a small border of Ice Grey 1 around it. Lastly, I colored the inside of the shadow with Black and blended the different shades of grey together.

Step 4: Color the Front of the Porsche

To color the plastic bits around the front I started by coloring everything with Ice Grey 2, at least that was my intention. I forgot to color the blinkers (I believe that's what they are).

Then I darkened most parts, except a line at the bottom and toward the top of the black grill.

And lastly, I added some Black in the darkest parts and blended that into Ice Grey 4 using Ice Grey 5.

Step 5: Color the Wheels of the Porsche 992 GT3 RS

I first colored the rear wheel, starting with Ice Grey 4 to color the darkest parts. Then I colored the rest using Ice Grey 2. Next, I darkened most of the dark parts using Ice Grey 5 and Black. Finally, I colored the tire, Ice Grey 5 at the top blended into Black toward the middle.

Next, I colored the rear wheel and once again I started by coloring the dark parts with Ice Grey 4, except the brake caliper and disk for some reason. Then I colored the remainder with Ice Grey 2.

After that, I made the darker parts darker using Ice Grey 5 and Black. Lastly, I colored the tire. Again Ice Grey 5 at the top blended into Black toward the middle.

Step 6: Color the Side Skirt

The side skirt is pretty dark, so I immediately colored it with Ice Grey 4 and then I added some darker tones using Ice Grey 5 and Black.

Step 7: Color the Side Air Intake

The side intake is nothing special. I just outlined it with Ice Grey 5 and colored the part below it. Then I added some black to the bit below the pure black, but leaving a tiny line of grey.

Step 8:  Color the Canard Behind the Rear Wheel

I colored it Ice Grey 5.

Step 9: Color the Headlights of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Now it's time for a fun step!

Headlights can be a little daunting as they are very detailed and contain a lot of reflections. But for now, we're going to keep it simple. We won't worry about the details yet, they'll be added later on.

I started by coloring the left headlight. I colored the light parts with Ice Grey 2 and the darker parts with Ice Grey 4.

Then I darkened some of the darker parts with Ice Grey 5 and then I darkened a few more parts with Black.

Lastly, I added some beautiful colors, some Mustard, Amethyst, Violet and Raw Sienna. Later on I also added some Turquoise in some parts.

Next, I colored the right headlight. 

This time I colored the very light parts Ice Grey 1 and the darker parts Ice Grey 2. 

Then I added some colors, some Mustard, Raw Sienna, Amethyst, Violet and Turquoise.

And lastly, I added some Ice Grey 5 and Black to the darkest parts.

Step 10: Color the Hood of the GT3 RS

I started off by coloring the logo with Mustard and I colored the left part of the hood with Ice Grey 1.

Next, I colored the remainder of the hood with Ice Grey 2, except for the fins and vents. I  also darkened some parts of the Ice Grey 1 with Ice Grey 2.

Then I colored the vents and ins with Ice Grey 4, as well as the bottom right and a bit on the bottom left and I blended that into the lighter grey.

Lastly, I darkened the edge to the left of the logo with Ice Grey 5 and I added some vague reflections to the bottom right with Ice Grey 5 as well. I also darkened some parts of the vents and I used some black for the really dark parts.

Step 11: Color the Windshield

The windshield is split by a reflection. I colored everything to the left of the reflection with Ice Grey 1.

Next, I darkened some of the parts on the left with Ice Grey 2 and I added some Ice Grey 2 to the a-pillar on the right.

Then I added some Ice Grey 4 to the darkest part on the left side and I darkened the left side of the right part (hope that makes sense...). I also color the side window on the right with Ice Grey 1.

Lastly, I added some Ice Grey 5 and Black to the darkest parts and I added a tree reflection on the right side of the windshield. I also added some Ice Grey 5 on the far left of the windshield.

Step 12: Color the Side Window

I started by coloring the full side window with Ice Grey 2.

Then I added some reflections and lines with Ice Grey 4 and 5.

And lastly, I darkened some parts with Black.

Step 13: Color the Roof

To color the roof, I started by coloring it fully with Ice Grey 1.

Next, I added some Ice Grey 2 to most of the top part.

And finally, I added some darker parts, mostly toward the top right, using Ice Grey 4. I also colored the fin to the top left of the roof using Ice Grey 4.

Step 14: Color the Vents Above the Front Wheel

I first colored the vents with Ice Grey 2.

Next, I layered some Ice Grey 4 over it to darken most of it, but leaving some parts lighter.

Lastly, I darkened some parts even more with Ice Grey 5 and Black.

Step 15: Color the Door Mirrors

I started by coloring the top half of the left mirror with Ice Grey 1.

Then I darkened the bottom left and the top right, but not all the way to the edge, using Ice Grey 2.

Next, I darkened those parts using Ice Grey 4.

And finally, I darkened the bottom left even more using black and I added a line to the far right. I also darkened the spot on the top right using Ice Grey 5.

Then I colored the right mirror, starting with Ice Grey 1.

Next, I made the bottom darker using Ice Grey 2 and I darkened the right side using Ice Grey 4.

Lastly, I added some Black to the bottom left and the right side.

Step 16. Color the Wing Stands and Endplates

I started by coloring both the wing stand and the endplate with Ice Grey 4. 

Then I darkened the bottom and left part of the wing stand with Ice Grey 5. I also added a darker line to the bottom and the right of the endplate also using Ice Grey 5.

Step 17: Add the Red to the Logo

Earlier when coloring the hood, I forgot to complete the logo, so we're doing that now.

I added some Burnt Orange to the top right and bottom left but left a circle in the middle Mustard.

Step 18: Color the Main Body of the Porsche 992 GT3 RS

It's time to add some color!

We're going to color the Porsche 911 GT3 RS a beautiful grey-green color. I wanted to draw a car in this color for a while now and this seemed like the perfect one for this color. 

Don't be deceived by the color names, however. 3 out of the 4 colors are called blue for some reason. The developers at Winsor & Newton must have inhaled a bit too many of the alcohol marker fumes...

I first colored the full main body using Pastel Blue.

Then I added a lot of darker reflections with Pebble Blue. I kept most of the reflections sharp, but just below and to the right of the left headlight I blended it into the Pastel Blue.

Next, I added even more reflections using Verdigris. It might seem overwhelming, but just take your time and keep it simple. You can always add more reflections.

After that, I used Petrol Blue to darker just a few parts. Around the fin just in front of the front wheel, the bottom side part and a few reflections on the side, and the darker parts of the wing.

Finally, I layered some Ice Grey 5 on top of most of the parts I colored Petrol Blue. I also darkened some reflections here and there as it was looking a bit too light in my opinion.

Step 19: Add Details with Colored Pencils

In this step we're going to refine the drawing a bit and add in those details we left out earlier.

I used a White and a Black colored pencil to add in the details of both headlights. I also refined the air outlets above the front wheel using a Black pencil.

Then I added some details to the tires and I refined the spokes of both wheels with White and Black.

Next, I added some Black reflections on the side, just a few, and I darkened the dark parts of the wing and the underside of the left door mirror.

I wanted to make some close-up photos, but I forgot...

Step 20: Add Pure White Highlights

The drawing looks very good already, but to give it that finishing touch we're going to add some bright white highlights using the Posca PC-3M.

I added just a few highlights on both wheels, as well as on the side of the car and the left side of the wing. I also added some highlights in both headlights and a few on the front of the car.
