    Question Motorbike Concept

    Idea I've had for a while, finally managed to get it out, not quite what I was imagining but it was difficult enough to get to this point.

    How do I get the tire to look... right? I've never been good with perspective, any tips I can't pull from any old drawing book? Critique the design of the thing itself too please, anything that doesn't seem logical or right.

    I never work on non-organic things, so this is entirely new territory for me.

    Here are some visuals that might help you. I did some quick lines to illustrate how the perspective should work. Of course, if you want the bike to be leaning or something that would require different lines. I've just made a quick sketch of it flat on the ground.

    A couple of tricks you can use for perspective is to create a grid by marking a vanishing point and then draw line to the edge of the page (I use line tool in Photoshop). For the blue lines I just made several straight lines in photoshop and then used the distort tool to create a vanishing point that exists far of the page.

    For the tire think of it as existing in a square to get the perspective of the circle look right without it looking like an oval tire. In the example I've done and front surface would align with the black lines and the side parts with the blue. Just remember to think of everything as existing in a cube as fare as proportion and don't forget the starting and ending points of things you cant see like the back part that connects to the tire.

    I'd also include some kind of suggestion for steering if the glass is clear.

    Hope it helps.

    how is it even standing up???
    I like the concept but it's not really working on the logical side. All the design help you need was clearly explained in the comment above.

    i say after that maybe add a kick stand, or some type of retractable automated neutralized balancing stabilizer, if you will. since were in the future and all

    Check out the design of one-wheel bicycle.
    Also, study some stunt bikers photos who do wheelie by their wheel at any given time.

    In previous sketches there was some 'flame' from the jet on the back/underside, it just didn't make it through to the roughing. It was supposed to be in motion, more 'standby' than travelling.
