how to draw
Our detailed step-by-step guide covers how to draw a sword, the full coloring process that you will complete, as well as how to add detailing to your sword drawing.
Once you have found the middle, draw the handle of your sword to the right of the center.
Once your handle has been drawn, you will need to add the pommel.
In order to do this, simply draw a narrow oval shape at the end of the handle.
At the bottom of the handle, which you drew in step one, outline two guards with a protruding edge.
Between the two guards which you have just drawn, sketch two oval shapes. One oval should be slightly larger, with a smaller one inside.
You will be moving on to the blade part of your sword. In this step, draw a long blade that protrudes from the handle attachment.
Outline the blade (adding two boulting edges on the sides), the handle, and the guards. Draw the pommel with a small oval shape to represent the jewel.
You will now be adding texture to the guards and blade. On the guards, draw a similar grip to the handle with several looping curved lines.
apply the 1st
coat of color
Using a fine brush, select gray paint to color in the entire blade, the stones within the attachment oval, and the guard’s grips.
apply the 2nd
coat of color
Making use of a fine sharp brush, select gold or dark yellow paint. This will be used to color the pommel, the handle grip, and the blank loops on the guards, including the handle.
Using a fine sharp brush, select a shade of punch pink paint to color in the main jewel located in the handle attachment.
As your blade has already been painted, you will now add some shading to it. Using a small fine brush and dark gray paint, shade in the texture on the blade.
Using a small soft brush and some white paint, brush realistic scratch and cut marks against the blade’s sharp edges.
handle and guards
If you think an area should be darker or shaded, add some more! This will create a more realistic texture and color.
You will now be focusing on the jewels in your sword sketch. Take a soft brush and black paint to create some shade around each jewel.
FINISH UP THE
Simply take a fine sharp brush and trace over the entirety of the sword, including the texture and detail lines, with the corresponding color to the area being traced.
