You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start drawing helmets using a circle. In the circle, draw two curves. Extend the set of parallel, straight lines down from the curves. Then, circle a curved square along each of these lines. This creates the mask of the helmet.
Attach the armor plate under the helmet. Using a series of curves, meet in rounded corners. Notice how the armor curves inward just above the waist.
Next, you will draw the “skirt” of the armor, called a tassel. To draw fringes, extend two slightly curved lines down from the breast patch. Then connect them using a curve.
Next, draw the shield. Start the big shield by drawing a curve on the bra, extending it beyond the shoulders. Then stretch a pair of slight curves downwards from each end. From these lines, angle a pair of lines inward until they meet at a point.
Remove guide lines from the shield.
Decorate the shield by drawing diagonal lines across it, cutting at the center of a perpendicular angle. Then draw the shoulders of the armor. Draw a curve, like a half circle. Then, extend a short line from each end. Connect these lines with a longer curve.
Use a variety of curves to outline arms and fingers. Draw a curve on the arm to distinguish a glove or armored glove. Then draw the leg. Sketch the legs and feet using the curves. Draw a rhombus across each knee and two parallel, horizontal lines behind it. Delete instruction lines if necessary. Draw another set of curves over the ankle.
Remove the guide lines from helmets and shoulders.
Draw sword in the knight’s hand, erase the guide lines as needed. Use a pair of paths for the hilt and a circle for the bomb. Underneath the hand, draw the guard using a narrow rectangle. Stretch the three lines to form the blade, meeting each other at a sharp point. Detail of the chest patch and tassels with curves, horizontal. Decorate the shield using rectangles and diamonds. Finally the helmet details. Paste a circle upwards and extend the two curves that meet at a sharp point. Draw horizontal and vertical lines on the helmet.
Color your knight, and then expand the scene using our other medieval painting tutorials. Give him a castle, a loyal steed and a dragon to fight.
