how to draw
In the first steps, we use a range of different construction lines and shapes to lay down the basic shape of the crown. In the last six steps of our tutorial, we begin to add color.
Find the central point of your canvas area, draw a long and narrow horizontal oval shape. This first oval will be the bottom base of the crown.
of the crown
Repeat the first step leaving a little space between the first and second narrow ovals. This upper oval will represent the top level of the crown.
Above the middle base oval, draw another one. This top oval should be significantly narrower, and the space between all three ovals should be the same.
ou are going to use two vertical lines to create the sides of your king crown drawing. On either side, draw a straight line from the bottom to the top.
the top circle
In this step, we begin this process by drawing a single circle in the center of the top oval. The bottom of this circle should sit on the bottom line of the top oval.
On each end of the top oval, you want to draw two more circular shapes. These end circles should be smaller than the central one.
finish the top
These last two oval shapes should be significantly smaller than the other three.
These will represent the highest part of the crown drawing.

In this step, you are going to draw two “U” shapes that extend down from the ornamental circles to the middle construction oval.
Draw three “U” shapes between the two outer ornamental ovals and the back two. These oval shapes should extend down to the back of the middle construction oval.
Begin at the very center of the crown, drawing a large vertical oval shape. This should overlap slightly with the middle base oval shape.
On the left side of your crown, draw a narrow vertical oval shape that lies within the borders of the bottom base and the mid base construction ovals.
ou can now draw two smaller and slightly more rounded oval shapes within the bottom band of the crown.
You are going to use all of the previously drawn construction lines to help you create the final outline of the realistic crown drawing.
FIRST COAT OF
You are going to use bright yellow paint and a regular brush. Color in the front part of the crown, including the bands around the jewels.
For the inside area of the crown, we are going to use a darker
shade of yellow
to enhance its three dimensions.
You are now going to color in the jewels using turquoise and red shades. Use a fine brush and a bright turquoise color to fill the oval shapes.
Find a soft blending brush and use a touch of black paint to add a layer of shading within the inner frame of the crown.
Use a small blending brush and a little white paint to add small patches of highlight on each jewel.
To add the finishing touches to your realistic crown drawing, you can now erase the outline of your drawing to create a seamless finish.
