Today i’ve prepared for you a new drawing tutorial on how to draw a sword for kids and beginners! It’s not a secret to anybody, a sword was one of the most used weapons by knights. But in those old times the sword was not only a weapon of war and murder, but also an insanely expensive accessory that only a very rich man, who was a knight, could afford. The lesson is quite simple and there are many straight lines.
We begin with the blade of the sword. First draw a straight horizontal line as a guide for the top edge of the blade.
Draw the exact same horizontal line just below the line from the previous step – this will be the bottom edge of the blade of Our sword.
Connect these two lines using two short lines at an acute angle. In fact we have already drawn the blade of the sword.
Draw third straight line starting from the point of the sword and passing right through the center of the blade.
Guard – is a detail designed to protect the hand from enemy weapons. So draw it using vertical rectangle.
Right behind the guard draw the grip. The grip can be short as in our example or long.
The pommel performs two functions: it serves as a counterweight, improving the balance of the weapon and also keeps the hand from slipping. Draw it in the shape of a semicircle.
The drawing lesson on how to draw a sword for kids is almost finished. You can leave a sword like this or paint it.
The grip of the sword is usually brown or black, and the blade itself can be painted over light gray or light blue.
We have drawn a sword which is often called a short sword. This sword is light enough to hold in one hand, freeing the other hand for a shield or other weapon.
