This easy tutorial will help you learn to draw a cartoon bicycle! There are no better ways to get in shape and to travel than using a bicycle. This is a mode of transportation that will probably never disappear. It's 100% ecological and relatively cheap to buy! So let's see how you could draw a simple bicycle in seven easy steps! First, you can use the video lesson below. Then, you can try the written version located below the video. :)
First, draw two circles to form the tires. Don't draw them too much apart from one another. You should not be able to draw another tire between these two. If you can, then you should draw your wheels closer.
Add three more circles. One for the chain wheel and two mores for the front and rear hubs. Make sure that the chain wheel is slightly touching the rear tire.
It's now time to sketch the tubes of your bicycle. Just follow carefully the illustration above to make sure that the position and proportion of your tubes are accurate!
Finally, add the basic shapes for the saddle, the handlebars and the pedal.
Now it's time to refine your drawing! Work on the tires and make sure the wheels are perfectly round. Then, draw some lines to create the spokes. Don't draw too many of them, otherwise your drawing will be saturated with useless lines.
Now work on the body of your bicycle. Make sure that the saddle is perfectly shaped and that all tubes are now joined into a solid and unique element.
Just add some color and you got yourself a nice and clean bicycle! Like you can see, drawing a bicycle isn't too difficult if you take your time and draw all elements on the right spot carefully. Now that this lesson is completed, you can try more vehicles from this site. Most of these lessons are pretty basic, but others are certainly more challenging. Enjoy! :)
