How to Draw a Skateboard – Let’s get started!
Start drawing a cool-looking skateboard by creating the body.
You will draw a slightly curved, upward diagoop part of the skateboard’s body.
Step 2 – Add Another Side of the Deckboard
The next step is to create the other half of the skateboard’s body.
This is just a repeat of Step 1.
Step 3 – Complete the Deckboard of the Skateboard to Add the Skateboard Deck
Now that you have completed the board part of the skateboard’s body, it’s time to complete the body by connecting all parts.
Use curved lines to do this.
Step 4 – Draw Out the Wheels
It’s time to add the wheels of the skateboard.
Draw a small circle to represent the rear wheel of the skateboard.
Step 5 – Add More Wheels
This is just a repetition of Step 4. Create the front wheel of the skateboard by drawing another circle.
Step 6 – Attach the Bearing at the Center of the Wheels
It’s time to make the wheels look realistic.
Add curved lines behind both wheels to make it look 3D or three-dimensional.
Step 7 – Add on Some Details on the Wheels
This is a continuation of Step 6.
Make the wheels more realistic by adding inner circles to both wheels.
Step 8 – Finish Off the Wheel by Drawing its Bearing
This is a continuation of Step 7. Make the wheels more realistic by adding curved lines inside the inner circles.
Step 9 – Add Details in the Deckboard the Way you Prefer
It’s time to make the body of the skateboard look realistic. Draw a long diagonal line across the middle part of the skateboard.
This creates a division line, making it a lot easier for you to color the skateboard later on.
Now that we’ve successfully drawn a skateboard, it’s finally time to put color on your cool skateboard!
Skateboards exist in nearly every color there is. Most of them even have artistic and colorful patterns on the surface.
Feel free to use any color you like! We suggest using more than one color to create a fun, multi-colored skateboard. Don’t forget to add colors on the wheels too!
Have fun playing with colors and watch as the skateboard ultimately comes to life!

When it comes to decorating your skateboard, you can do more than just change the colors. You could also add some cool designs to make it look even more distinct!
These could include logos, pictures or simple shapes and lines. When you combine these with your color choices, you can create all kinds of awesome skateboard variations.
