Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw spokes on a wheel. Alright, a simple wheel would be a circle for the center of the wheel and then a large circle for the outside of the wheel and then the spokes are, you know what, let's do two lines here. The spokes are these guys that attach the center of the wheel to the outer wheel and give it more strength. So there is a simple wheel with spokes. Now if you want to make it more detailed, you also can have a wheel, let's get this to be rounder, wheels are round so that they roll correctly. Alright, so you could also have spokes that are something like this. Here's the center of the wheel. You'll see this more often on bikes, you know, where you have spokes and are going over each other and I'm just doing a quick version so you can see but you know, you would even have more, this is one type of wheel. You might have more that go over each other, something like this, you get the idea. So there are different varieties of spokes. All of them though, same concept, attaching the center of the wheel to the outside. Enjoy.
