The initial step is to create the basic shape of the bus. Start by drawing a big rectangular figure for the bus’s body. A smaller rectangle will also be drawn, connecting the lower left side of the bigger rectangle. This smaller rectangle will be the front part of the bus.

Then, you can add additional boxes dedicated to the wheels, the door, and the bus’s windows. After drawing these boxes, you can start outlining the shape of the bus to give more details to your drawing.

Step 2: Adding Details of the Bus

After outlining the shape of the bus, you can start adding additional details about the bus. You can begin drawing smaller windows, creating smaller rectangles that serve as the bus’s windows. Then, start drawing lines to make the doors.

After the door and windows, you can also start drawing all the other parts of the bus. Start by drawing a mirror located at the front of the bus. Then, remove the lines dedicated to the lights and the metal pieces. After that, you can start outlining the effect of the windows and the doors.

Step 3: Coloring the Bus
