Hi everyone :)

In this tutorial you can learn how to draw a realistic chrome rim!
The tutorial consists of a video at the start where I draw the rim,
and a step by step picture guide with explanation. I have also
included a drawingvideo at the last step, where I draw an entire
chopper bike. Remember to have fun drawing, and I will gladly
comment you if you send a photo of your rim drawing
(contact me via my website).

Estimated time to finish: 3, 5 hours
Tools: Mechanical pencil 0, 5
pencils HB, 2B, 4B, 5B
Blending stick or a Q-tip

Step 1: Reference photo

I have chosen a car from the movie 2 fast 2 furious as reference picture. This rim is very
detailed and quite shiny, so it's a good picture to draw. The photo that I found was not too big,
so I made the drawing a bit lager. That's why I have written the numbers on the drawing in the
next step, and then you can check if you have the size and geometrics worked out right :)
<p>great tips</p>
<p>nice job amazing</p>
<p>Sub! ^_^</p>
How long did this drawing take you to complete? <br>
It looks so realistic!
Wow that1s awesome!
killer im trying to improve my skills im really terrible.
your skills are amazing! i really like this instructable too:)<br>and i have to add, do you by chance have a deviantart account?
i googled 2 fast 2 furious but it didnt come up
i have tried seen so many different tutorials but yours is the best i have seen 5* yay :P
Great job, I can't draw reflective objects at all. Here are two of my drawings.
Nice and pretty
Another amazing tut, I Drew the whole car, it took me about 8 hours on a 16&quot; by 23&quot; sheet , it looks great, I wish i could post a pic, but have no camera.<br />
Without being very good at art to begin with, these instructions don't help. Being the mediocre artist wanna-be that I am, this helps me none at all. However an experienced artist may find this very useful. 4 * <br/>
Damn, you're good at what you do! How long did the bike take?
thank you, the bike took about 14-15 hours! three days with some drawing every day.
Beautiful! and such patience!
Badass bike! Is it from a photo, or your own imagination?
its from a photo. if u watch the vid
Dang. Usually I don't like Metacafe, but you deserve props for this one. It makes me ashamed to call what I do 'Art' (for which I'm hoping to post some instructables soon) I totally understand how long it takes to finish a work, too. You could start on a drawing, then when you're almost done with just the most basic line art, an hour is gone. Great job.
yes indeed it takes a looooooot of time :) thank you for your nice comment!
ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT saw Chip Foose do something similar on tv. He`s good but you`re better. BAZL.
oh my thats on hell of an compliment! thank you hehe
Man , can't say anything but RespecT ! Keep up the good job and maybe more instructs ;)
OMG!!! HE SO TOTALLY DID NOT JUST DO THAT! Lol your an awesome artist.
you are freaking amazing.
You're just amazing buddy. Didn't know you still did stuff here. :D I love how you create the lighting effects. They are absolutely amazing, its what brings the drawing to life. Ive been drawing alot more and taking some of your advice, but still got a long way to go until im close to your skill level. But i recently did draw a graffiti/calligraphy piece for this girl, it was good stuff :D Do you do any other art styles?
Hi cry_wolf! nice to talk to you again :) Yes I'm still around hehe. thanks for the compliments buddy. I do a lot of different styles, acrylic painting and even some digital 3d work! but it's traditional art and realism that i master the best. it takes forever to just understand how to use a 3d program!
Oh yeah, those 3D programs take forever to master. I've got a friend who is just stunning with the free 3D rendering program Blender. I do some acrylic painting and oil painting too :D
Hehe you wouldnt mind if i used this idea for my art sketch i have to hand in right? is that legal btw im just going to follow your instruction and hopefully it will turn out as good XD
You're welcome :) just glad I can help you !
