Today in this lesson you will learn how to draw a crown in 9 easy steps. This lesson will help develop imagination, abstract thinking, aesthetic taste, and fine motor skills. You can draw the crown with the children, showing them how to draw a particular part of the crown step by step. Such a pastime will be not only fruitful, but will also bring you a lot of fun.
How to Draw a Crown Step by Step
The simplest crown is easy to draw. You will need an A4 sheet of paper, a simple pencil and an eraser in case some lines have to be erased. To draw the crown correctly, quickly and beautifully together with your child, follow the following step-by-step instructions.
How to Draw a Crown
Total Time: 10 minutes
Step 1 [How to Draw a Crown]
As a first step, draw an horizontal line at the bottom of the sheet. It is this way that you can mark the base of your crown.
Step 2 [How to Draw a Crown]
Near this line, Circle a narrow oval around this line, so that the volume of the crown will get more volume and look more real. At this stage, the horizontal line can be erased.
Step 3 [How to Draw a Crown]
In the circle of the drawn oval, depict an other one, which will be slightly larger than the first one. You can mark the thickness of your crown with this.
Step 4 [How to Draw a Crown]
From the edges of large-oval, from the sides of the large square draw two upwards with an increased slightly slope in different directions.
Step 5 [How to Draw a Crown]
Drawing a curved horizontal line between the two previously drawn lines upwards, and then draw a straight vertical line. In this way, it will be the basis for patterns on the crown.
Step 6 [How to Draw a Crown]
In the top, draw another line exactly like that.
Step 7 [How to Draw a Crown]
In the next step, draw a top of the head of the crown with beautiful patterns. They need to be symmetrical about them. So you can draw an auxiliary vertical line in it, so you can draw an auxiliary vertical line in the middle and then erase it. In order to choose patterns, be guided by the ornament shown in the picture. For example, in fact, the crown is decorated with the same elements of different size. One only half of the pattern is depicted on the side, because that way it is possible to see the teeth of the crown in perspective.
Step 8 [How to Draw a Crown]
As in the last picture, complete the crown design with triangles and circles, as in the last picture.
Step 9 [How to Draw a Crown]
And now our crown is ready, the only thing left is to paint the picture.
- Drawing paper
I suggest you to shade the head of the crown from below. This will give an ideal sense of perspective and allow for all parts of the upper part to stand out. In the end, the crown can be redrawn in different sizes or neatly cut out of paper. As a result of your success in the work, you can try to learn how to draw other more complicated versions of the crown.
How to paint a crown
In general, crowns are made of gold, so your design will be predominantly in a gold color scheme. The color of the crown can be used in different colors, for example, to represent jewels and jewelry on the crown. You can also use different yellows as a way to convey volume of it and make the image realistic. The front of the crown should be light and the sides can be orange or brown, for example. For example, the front of the crown should be lighter than its front side.
The following materials should be used for coloring:
- A drawing on thin paper is as neat and beautiful that it can be. Colored pencils help make a design on thin paper as neat and beautiful as possible. It is necessary to work carefully with them and paint the crown clearly on the shapes, not over the edges.
- In watercolor or in gouache, you can paint the crown. Anything can be painted in any shade of color, and if something does not turn out well, it’s easy to fix. In addition, you should be careful of working with color on heavy paper- thin sheet can get wet and crumpled.
- It is worth noting that the felt-tip pens are more ideal for drawn on cardboard or art paper. However, it is unlikely to mix colors with felt-tip pens, so they are mostly suitable for simple drawings.
How to draw different crowns
In the world, there is no universal way to represent the crown – it all depends on your own creative imagination. It is possible to create a drawing that can contain any pattern in all its variety. A child will be able to draw on the cell, so that the sides are in symmetrical. At first, complex varieties of different kinds of crowns will be more easier for him to draw on the parts, so that the sides are correctly arranged. In the near future, beautiful crowns will begin to turn out on white paper. As a result of the need to find new ideas for your own drawings, you can consider the following crowns and try to copy their ornaments.
