How to Draw a knight’s Helmet
- Sketch the outline of the knight’s helmet.
First, draw a circle as we do when we draw heads. Try to make this circle as proportional and symmetrical as possible.
- Sketch out the visor and circular hinge.
Here you should be as careful as possible because it is the location of these details that indicates the turn of the head.
- Draw the openings in the visor.
To do it, sketch out some vertical thick lines and a long line in the center of the visor. Instead of vertical lines like in my example, you can draw round holes.
- Create the gorget.
The gorget is the part that covers the knight’s neck and upper chest. Essentially, this part of the knight’s helmet needs to be drawn as if you were drawing the neck.
- Draw the plume.
To do this, use long and smooth lines that flow into each other. The lines should be long, smooth and flowing into each other.
- Add some finishing touches to the knight’s helmet.
Find all mistakes and fix them if any. In addition, here you can add some details, such as patterns. If they are no mistakes, then start coloring.
- Color your knight’s helmet drawing.
Paint the knight’s helmet in light blue or light gray and the feathers in red or blue. Or you can use gray for the metal and any other color for the plume.
Improving Your Artwork
Knights’ helmets come in a variety of shapes and types. It depends both on the era in which a particular knight’s helmet was made, and on the country and even the master who made it. And of course, this depends on the customer, who could order either the simplest helmet or a helmet with drawings, engravings, etc.
In this step by step drawing lesson I showed you how to draw a very simple knights’ helmet. But you can of course go deeper into the topic by drawing additional details.
For example, you can add patterns that were often drawn on the helmets of noble knights.
Additionally, you can change the design of the visor to make it more complex. For example, some knights made a visor with their own face, and even an elaborately engraved mustache.
Helmet – a means of protecting the head of a warrior (in our case a knight). Helmets have been known since ancient times. They were first made from leather, and then from copper and steel. Such an element of armor was widespread in antiquity, in the Middle Ages (it was this helmet that we drew today) and received a new life in the 20th and 21st centuries.
So, as always, at the end of the article, I provide a shortened version of the lesson. It will come in handy if you want to draw without the Internet or print it out for your children or students.
