Drawing a Single Cylinder Custom Motorcycle

I ride a motorcycle daily – commuting 100 miles to and from work. Motorcycles are my drug of choice so I wanted to try my hand at drawing a realistic motorcycle using pencil. Here is the process I took.

I started with a photo of a motorcycle I wanted to draw and added a 1″ x 1″ grid. I then made a 1″ x 1″ grid on the drawing paper. The next steps are trying to replicate the motorcycle on the drawing paper and then add the lighting and shading effects to give it the realistic look.

Here is the series of pictures.

Drawing Dolores O’Riordan

When the world sadly found out that Dolores O’Riordan passed away on 15 January 2018 it was a shock to Cranberries fans around the world. I wanted to draw a picture of Dolores and found this one from one of the Cranberries’ performances.

This was my process to draw Dolores from a screen capture of when the Cranberries performed “Zombie” on Late Show with David Letterman – in November 1994. I normally create a 1″ x 1″ grid on the picture then on the paper where I’ll draw the picture. Here are a series of pictures of that process.

Here’s the screen capture of the YouTube video from which I decided to draw the picture.
