Hey ho everybody, I’m back with another tutorial that you may, or may not like. I started the day with a lesson on drawing the main figure from Phantom of the Opera. I will now take things down a notch and show you guys "how to draw a tower", step by step. Now there are many types of towers that one can draw, but I went with the medieval type since it is something that people think of when they hear the word ‘tower’. At first I was going to draw a tower that was similar to that of Rapunzel, but then I thought that was too typical. I went ahead and drew a tower that looks like the ones from one of my favorite movies, ‘Army of Darkness’ which is the third installment of the Evil Dead series. It’s a bit tattered and worn, and there is also moss growing on the exterior of the tower walls. I really wanted to keep the design concept simple so that anyone would be able to tackle this tutorial with ease. Well, I guess that’s it. Remember, you can tweak this tower any way you like, just make sure to show folks what you have done by showing your family and friends, or by submitting your finished artwork here on Dragoart.com.

Start off by drawing an oblong rectangular shape for the structure of the tower. Add the window and door guide in the center and move along.

STEP 2.

Using a rugged stroke, begin sketching out the actual structure of the tower or building like you see here. I went with a diamond tipped door shape, but you can draw a gated door that drops down to a bridge if you want. The top has notches as you can see that has been damaged with age and war.

Here is where you will draw out the windows and when that is done color them in solid. Draw the crick detailing around the door frame, and then sketch in some more aging definition like the cracks, and then draw the moss. Draw the ground lining and then move along.
