Here's a great way of drawing a huge, medieval castle.
You will need:
|Start with a square for the front wall.|
|Add on two rectangles for towers.|
|Draw a triangle on the top of each, for a roof.|
|Next, draw in an arched entrance.|
That's the basic castle shape - but it's very boring.
|...round off the bottoms of the towers and the roofs of the towers.|
|Split the towers...|
|...and then add battlements to the front wall.|
|Add in lots of little windows...|
...they make the castle look bigger!
In fact, the smaller the windows, the bigger the castle looks.
|Add in a portcullis...|
|...and some shading to the towers.|
|Next, draw on flags at the top of the towers.|
Some of the biggest castles took years and years to build - they just kept adding extra bits over the years.
So do the same - add in more walls and towers and turrets...
|...more windows, to make it look bigger...|
|...and lots of shading.|
|You can make it look even bigger by drawing another castle inside the outer walls of the first!|
Keep adding bits on.
How about a few grand staircases, here and there.
|And a drawbridge and moat.|
Colouring in is up to you.
This one is painted with watercolours.
|This one has a scary, haunted theme.|
And this one uses pastel colours to give a fairytale castle!
Try it yourself!
