Take a little trip back in time with this cool drawing lesson on how to draw a knight! Protected with the latest armor, these courageous men were brave enough to defend their countries against foreign invasion. Movies are often depicting knights using glamorous images and themes, but it was probably a dirty job filled with danger, stressful situations and tough moments. Let's pay a tribute to those men with this simple drawing tutorial.
First, draw a large oval shape to create the helmet. Inside this helmet, add another circle to form the face of the character. Next, create the center part of the armor using a rectangle made from curved lines. Add a vertical line on the bottom of the shape.
The arms are made from large rectangles that are slightly narrower on top. Gloves are made from a simple circular shape. The feet are also made from straight and curved lines.
It's now time to work on the face of the character. Draw some circles to represent the eyes. The pupils are also made from large circular shapes. Finally, the mouth and nose are illustrate with a single line each.
Continue working on the helmet using two long curved lines. The sword of the knight is made from a long rectangle and a few straight lines. See below how this object is created.
Inside the helmet, draw several small rectangles. You can also add small circles on both sides of the helmet. On the armor, draw a long vertical line.
That's it! No need to add more details to create a cute cartoon knight that is adorable and very easy to recognize.
