Rim drawing tutorial

First of all, start with inner rim and outer rim. Detect them on the reference picture. I sketch the line lightly with H pencil. Take your time to get the proportion correct. This progress takes time and patience. Usually, the inner rim, outer rim and the tire are corresponded to each other, which mean they keep the same distance. The color lines are there to show you they keep the same distance throughout the rim. If you could keep the same distance, then you would have a corresponded rim lines. Click on individual image to enlarge.

Then I added the center of the rim. It should again correspond to the tire. I used H pencil, really light sketch.
Image
Next I drew the spokes of the rim. This progress takes a lot of patience. Again I used H pencil to do a quick sketch on the spokes. Draw what you see, there are usually a pattern on the spokes, look closely at your reference picture.
Be confident when drawing spokes, you want it to be realistic. So you have to put time and effort into it.
Image
Then I start to shade the “outer rim" with 2B, H, 4H pencil. Remember to draw what you see, not what you think. Detect the darkest tone and lightest. In between those two, there are mid tones. Those thin lines, you need good hand control to get it. Those tiny lines make your wheel look realistic. So keep on trying to get it right.
Image
Then I filled in the darkest place in the rim with 4B and 8B pencil, which is inside the rim. (Where you can't normally see on a wheel.)
Image
I fill in the reflection and shades on the inner rim. I did it with H 2B and 4H because they are sharper for details.
Again detect details, don't skip it. Details are essential for realism.
Image
After the inner rim, I start to shade my spokes with H and 4H. Detect any highlight and shadow on the spokes, and try to draw it. It will make your rim realistic.
Image
After that, I drew the cap of the rim. I used 4B, HB, and 6H.
6H for the details. in the middle of the rim.
I also used eraser to pick out the highlight, which is the tiny white line. After you pick up those white line, lay down some 4H on it. So it's not just white, it will have a tone.
Image


Image
After you spent some time with the rim, it should look something like this.
Hope this will help you guys on drawing rims.
Thank you for reading this tutorial.

Re: Rim drawing tutorial

That's a great tutorial! I just use a grid and drafting guides to do my ellipses. This will come in very handy if I ever decide to free hand some rims!
Just your typical waffle-loving Canadian.
