How to Draw a Motorcycle in 5 Steps

5. Finish the Details


For the cable on the front fork, s­ketch a line from the wheel hub to the top of the fork. Add a small black square to the top of the cable. Draw a short line between the handlebars and the body. In front of the seat and below the handlebars, sketch a dark L-shaped figure. Inside the rear wheel hub, draw a circle.

Behind the seat, add a darkened curved bar. Under this area, draw a short upright line. To the left of this line, sketch an odd-shaped rectangle with a blackened top edge. In the motor area, draw the odd figures shown here, adding many lines and dark areas for shading. Place dots inside the seat for texture. Darken the tires and part of the handlebars.

Your motorcycle drawing is finished! Even if you don't get it right the first time, keep practicing until you're happy with your drawing.
