How to Draw a Crown: Drawing Guide
The instructions and illustrated images will show you how to draw this crown from start to finish. All you need to do is follow the easy steps.
- In step one you will use your ruler and pencil draw the base of the crown, the sides of the crown, and the points where the inverted arcs meet. Start by drawing a 6 inch line centered near the bottom of your paper. Parallel to that line, draw another line 1/4 of an inch above the first line. Measure 1/2 in up and draw 2 more parallel lines, the second line 1/4 inch above, just like at the bottom. Use your ruler to draw 2 inch vertical lines at the ends of the crown. Move in 1 inch and draw 1 1/2 inch vertical lines. And in the middle of the line, draw a 3 inch vertical line.
- The second step includes drawing 2 more sets of parallel lines, except these lines are curved lines. Curved lines will show the crown is round and not flat. Take your large round object and place it on the bottom of the crown and move it down until the edge is about 1 inch away from the middle. Trace 2 sets of lines 1/4 in apart going down and away from the base of the crown. Move your large round object so you can trace 2 sets of curved lines just barely above the base of the crown and then again trace 2 sets of curved lines above the straight parallel lines.
- The third step uses curved lines to connect the ends of the vertical lines. These form the inverted arcs for this crown. Make the arcs mirror each other, See the illustration below.
- The fourth step adds the balls at the top of the arcs and adds perspective lines along the top edge of the arcs. Draw the balls so you can see the top of the arc inside the ball. Starting at the left side, Draw a line and follow the curve down, then pick it up again at the top of the short line. Repeat on the right side. See the illustration below.
- The fifth step adds adornment to the crown. Along the middle of the bottom band of the crown, add small circles on each vertical line. Along the top band of the crown, add alternating large and small double circles on each vertical line.
- Sixth step uses the eraser to clean up any lines that are in the background at this point. Take your eraser and remove any lines used for mapping out the framework of the crown. See illustration below. Take fine tipped permanent marker and trace over final lines. Erase one more time.
- Seventh step uses fine tipped permanent marker to add hatch marks and other detail lines to each section of the crown.
