You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Remove guide lines from the shield.

Step 6

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.

Step 7

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.

Step 8

Remove the guide lines from helmets and shoulders.

Step 9

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.

Step 10

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.
