In order to make a good car drawing it’s is very important to draw correctly its wheels. If the wheels don’t look good the whole drawing doesn’t look good. So knowing how to draw circles in perspective is a must.
You’ve been practicing drawing circles and ellipses but now you will learn how to integrate them in to a perspective drawing.
Drawing circles in perspective
Circles and ellipses have two axis: The mayor axis (red) and the minor axis (blue). They are perpendicular to each other. They always form a 90 degree angle.
In ellipses the mayor axis goes along the wider side and the minor axis goes along the narrow side. In a circle both axis look the same because this shape is perfectly round so there are no wide or narrow side.

How to multiply in perspective
This is basically the same as in the first multiplying technique.
Find the mid-point. The square’s midpoint and the center of the ellipse don’t actually coincide, by a small distance. This is a weird thing that happens when foreshortening starts coming into play. If you draw them both looking at them from the front, these two point will hit the exact same spot.
Draw as many ellipses as you need.
