Description: Hi people how are ya? Good I hope. Honk! Honk! Get out of the way thereโ€™s a fire! A fire truck is a vehicle used by firefighters to put out fires, from little brush fires to huge building fires. Not only does this super truck assist the firefighters with putting out the fires, it also transports them to the scene. Who invented this massive hose on wheels? Ctesibius of Alexandria invented the first fire pump mechanism in the second century B.C. During the 1500s Europe recreated the machine which was referred to in later years as a fire engine. At that time the pump was used to extend and have water flow and rise to 40 feet. Years and years later the fire truck has gotten more advanced and more technical making putting out fires easier, and when a fire gets easier to put out, the more lives are saved. Firefighters also have to wear protective suits and gear before entering any type of fire to protect themselves as well. In this tutorial I will show you how to draw a fire truck or fire engine, how ever you want to say it, with easy to learn steps. The instructions are pretty simple the sketch is basically all line art. I think when you want to learn how to draw a particular object or person, online is the best way to get the information needed. Well I hope you find my tutorial useful. Have a fantastic day.
