Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw choppers. So what you're going to do is you're going to start off with the wheels of course. I'm going to start off with the back wheel here. This is one circle and then I'm going to do the front wheel and make sure that they're a little bit far apart because usually choppers are a little bit wide, they're kind of a wide bike and the front wheel is going to be the same size pretty much. We'll draw it just like that. Then what we're going to do is we're going to draw from the middle. You've got to show where the middle of the wheels are by doing just a little bit of a dot and I'm going to draw a line just kind of going straight up here and then I'm going to draw two lines that connect to this dot here. And you can use whatever colors you want, I mean whatever chopper is your favorite I mean you can use to create your bike but I'm going to do a couple lines just in white here. Now this wheel is going to be pretty solid looking once we're done so I'm going to make sure that I do that line not connecting to that because it's going to be going along the other side of the wheel. So I'm going to actually take my handy orange marker here and I'm going to finish up drawing, draw back over this line here and draw back over this line and over that one. Then you're going to draw a connecting line up here and two lines at the top for the handlebars you're going to just draw a line across the top, a line there and a line there and make this a little bit thicker because it is a motorcycle so motorcycles are going to have thicker bars than a regular bike would and then what I'm going to do is I'm going to draw a large kind of bump there to show part of the bike's mechanics and then here is the seat so I'm just going to draw kind of a little L there, a little L shape and then I'm going to go along the side of the bike and just kind of thicken up this line here and I'm going to thicken up this line in the front as well and then I'm going to bring a line down just like this connecting to the middle of this wheel, bring it along the side and kind of arc it up just a little bit but not too much and then do a connecting line up here. Now this part is a lot of the bike's mechanics so you can kind of just fill that in if you want. If you want to use a couple different colors you can use that as well. I'm just going to kind of color this in really quick and just fill that in, make it a little bit opaque and then if you want you can use a different color. Like I'm going to use my white and just kind of show the piping and everything, just kind of fill it out a little bit. I'm going to draw another wheel, just kind of another circle inside of this one and the same thing in the front and then if you want, you can just do a couple lines just to kind of show the wheel there. Alright guys and that is how you draw a chopper. So good luck and stay creative.
