Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a 3D wheel. So what you do is you draw a big circle and then you draw another circle right inside your first circle and then you draw a smaller circle in the middle and that is the middle of your wheel. Alright and then we're going to draw the spokes. Basically, they go out from the center and they touch the outer wheel or the wheel itself. And imagine this is like a wheel on a wagon. And I'm just doing the lines for the spokes. Alright, and then what you can do is let's add some dimension to the wheel. We'll add some dimension to the side then we'll shade it in and then of course we've added dimension here, we're going to add it here on this side of the wheel. You know what, let's use this pen. We'll do pink shadows so that you can really see what I'm doing. Again, this is the inside of the wheel, the dimension or the shaded part. I'm going to shade over here as well. Imagine the pink is just like a darker shadow. And then of course, since I'm shading on these sides, the light source is coming from this direction and that means that we're going to get you know, some shading on these spokes. And where I'm drawing the pink I'm doing shading. And then here it's kind of like in the back, could be on both sides. So see how we're getting dimension to this wheel, you know, and if you wanted to you could add more lines to the spokes to give them a rounded feel. You know, just some rounded lines will give more of a rounded feel to your spokes and you can shade parts of the wheel or add in detailing, some wood detailing if you want to. But there you have it, here is your 3D wheel. Enjoy.
