Hello everyone and welcome back to another fun filled drawing tutorial on DragoArt.com. Today I am going to do a drawing lesson on another awesome piece of artillery. I will be showing you how to draw a cannon step by step. The cannon that I am going to show you how to draw looks similar to those used in the civil wars before the First World War. Cannons date back as early as 1250 when the Arabs of Spain first created and used cannons which were called madfaa back then. Now the madfaa was a wooden bowl which was packed with gunpowder and a circular stone of some sorts which was used as a bullet. Some weaponry specialist label the cannon as being a gun that is too large to be hand held and too big to have a trigger. The inventors of the cannon wanted the power and speed of the bullet and the size of a miniature boulder. So what they did was forge a long thick cylinder shaft, mounted it to a mobile or stationary carriage, fused it with a long wick which ignited the gunpowder, and then filled the deep shaft with a round boulder that would shoot out and do some serious damage. In the movie “The Patriot” the artillery used was cannons and when fired they would travel a long distance and then what ever it hit was usually destroyed or almost dismantled. Cannons were still being used during WWI and WWII, and as the years progressed cannons took on another form and were then being used on tanks, airplanes, and battleships. As a matter of fact the cannons of today are still being used by both tanks and battleships around the world. The cannon has been a part of arsenal history for centuries and all though they look different from when they were first created, they still provide a powerful bang and leave a trail of destruction on whatever it hits. This drawing tutorial will show you how to draw a cannon step by step with detailed instructions. The steps are easy to follow and understand which makes learning how to draw a cannon simple enough for everyone to tackle. I will be back with more drawing fun in a so stay tuned.
