I wanted to do another tutorial based on something sporty because Spring and Summer is just around the corner. To start my drawing day I am going to show you "how to draw skateboards", step by step. The skateboard is a piece of equipment that has been used for the activity of skateboarding. The skateboard is made primarily made up of plywood board with a coating of polyurethane. The coating gives the skateboard stronger durability, and smoother slides. There is several parts to a skateboard and they are; the deck which is the wood board. The underside of the deck is almost always decorated with various designs like skulls, flames, and so forth. The top of the deck's surface has grip tape applied which gives the skateboarder a good grip on the deck. The grainy or sandy texture of the deck helps sneakers attach or stay put when the skater is riding the board. The trucks are the two metal railings that the wheels connect to. This part of the skateboard is made up of two parts, the base-plate, which is screwed to the board, and the wheel holding unit called the hanger. Next is the wheels, bearings, and lastly the hardware. Drawing skateboards is going to be pretty easy to do, and I think when you are done you will have an awesome time drawing in your own design in the belly of the board. Have fun learning "how to draw skateboards", step by step, and be sure to stick around to see what else will be uploaded.
