Follow my easy steps, grab your drawing supplies, and let’s roll into this exciting drawing journey together! 🚲🎨
How to Draw a Bicycle
Start by drawing a large circle which will be the bicycle’s back wheel. Inside this circle, draw a smaller circle towards the top, and connect it with a straight line across the diameter of the wheel’s rim.
Repeat the process to create the front wheel of the bicycle. Ensure both wheels are aligned and the rear wheel is slightly smaller to give a sense of perspective.
Inside each wheel, draw another small circle for the hubs.
Now, draw straight lines on the back wheel as shown in the picture.
Now, repeat the same steps as done for the back wheel on the front wheel.
Draw a straight line from the back wheel’s hub going upwards to create the front fork.
Add two straight from the front wheel hub.
Now, draw four slanted lines starting from the front wheel’s road and connect them to the back wheel’s road as shown in the picture.
Sketch the handlebars extending up and then curving forwards from the head tube. Don’t forget to add the grips at the ends of the handlebars.
Add a small circle for the seat. Add pedals by drawing a small line on either side of the lower part of the frame where the lines intersect.
Finally, add color and shading to your bicycle to bring it to life. Use light and dark shades to create depth and give the impression of a three-dimensional object.
