|What have wizards, sorcerers, princesses and Cinderella all got in common? They all live in a fantasy castle - and they’re so easy to draw|
You will need:
|The first thing you need to think of is cylinders. |
To get a basic outline shape of your fantasy castle, draw a few cylinders next to each other, big and small.
|Once you've drawn your cylinders, add a pointy roof (called a turret) to each one.|
You could even add some more in the background.
|Now, it’s time to colour it in.|
Colour the turrets with a nice bright fantasy pink or blue. A good tip is to colour it in curves, because it gives the impression of rows of bricks or stone.
|To add more detail, shade one side of the towers in a darker colour.|
You can also colour in each roof with a blue colour for the slates.
|Next, for the windows, use another dark colour, like purple.|
Add them wherever you like on your tower.
|You can also divide your tower into sections, to add to the effect of the fantasy castle.|
|To finish the castle itself off, add some thin flagpoles to the top, and some flags onto them.|
You can also put in steps, and because most castles are built on a hill, why not add that too?
|For the finishing touches, add a sun, casting an orange glow down one side of the castle.|
Add in some mist as well with a white crayon. Because all good fairy tale fantasy castles are in the clouds, you can even add white mist at the base of the castle.
Try it yourself!
