Well so far today I have shown you how to draw a Cadillac Escalade and a Louis Elise. Both drawing lessons were super cool and easy to do. In this next tutorial I will be showing you how to draw a skyscraper step by step. For those of you that have seen my latest artwork submission, you will also notice that this skyscraper that you will be learning how to draw is from my comic that I drew a few days ago. When I drew out that comic I wanted my skyscraper to look real, high, and overwhelming. I personally think that I accomplished that feat with my building shown here. As you know only big cities have these enormous buildings that we call skyscrapers. One of the popular of all places in the Unites States that have these types of buildings is New York City. For those of you that are not quite sure on what a skyscraper is let me explain; a skyscraper is a tall continuously operational building structure that is made based on a city's overall skyline. A building that is only 180 feet high can still be called a skyscraper if it is taller relative to all the other buildings in the city. The fact is there is no great description on skyscrapers; they are just beautifully designed works of architectural art built by various architectures. Did you know that the very first skyscraper ever built was back in 1884? It’s true; the first skyscraper was a ten story building built in Chicago called the "Home Insurance Building". It was designed by an architect named Major William Le Baron Jenney and although the building today isn’t anything really to talk about, he still made American history because he built the first skyscraper in the United States. Some famous skyscrapers today are; The Empire State Building (of course) which was built in 1931, The Petronas Twin Towers which is located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and of course the two buildings that have made world history, the World Trade Center Twin Towers that were sadly destroyed in 2001. Skyscrapers are beautiful pieces of art work that can be appreciated by avid building admires. This tutorial will teach you how easy it is to learn how to draw skyscrapers step by step. I hope you find this online drawing lesson helpful and educational so that you can draw your own skyscraper and be an architect yourself. I will be back in a bit with some more drawing tutorials so stay tuned.

How to Draw a Skyscraper

how to draw a skyscraper step 1

STEP 1.

Okay lets get on the ball with this first step. This is going to be very simple. All you have to do is draw a total of five vertical lines that are slightly tilted inward with the two shapes on the ends being smaller than the rest. Next draw the boxed shape of the building shape on the left as well as the guidelines the goes in horizontal direction.

STEP 2.

In this next step you will start drawing out the vertical lines on the building structure to prepare your skyscraper for all the small looking windows you will place there in the next step. Make sure your lines are nice and straight as well as evenly spaced apart. Once that is done draw a horizontal line on the bottom of the building to make way for the solid structure.

STEP 3.

In this next step you will start drawing out each individual window in the skyscraper and all the windows are perfectly square with the largest of them being at the bottom. You will then color in all the windows and then write out your own name for your skyscraper. The building to the left also needs design as you can see, so what you will do is draw out the designing. On the right side of the skyscraper you will leave the windows hollow looking.

STEP 4.

This is your last drawing step and all you will need to do is draw out the rest of the squared windows just as you did in step three. Add some sign detailing to the bottom of the building including show lights and banners. Erase any visible sketch lines, or guidelines that you drew in step one. The horizontal line that you drew above the building is you skyline.
