Sword Drawing Reference

This is the reference we will use to create a drawing of a sword. The design is slightly complicated by the handle but we’ll improve on that to make our drawing resemble it as close as we can.

Steps For Drawing A Sword

Step 1

Start by drawing a small shape for the hilt of the sword. Then draw two vertical lines and join it to this shape with an uneven horizontal line.

Go onto drawing two long vertical lines and join it to the previous two with a curved line.

Step 2

Then draw this horizontal line but include the jagged ends.
