How to Draw the Hogwarts Crest

Step 1.

Start the first step by drawing out the outline for the badge. This is the canvas that the crest will be built on.

Step 2.

Outline the edges to make a border for the crest formation. Draw in the vertical lines on the top and bottom part of the symbol as well.

Step 3.

Next, draw a small badge like shape in the center of the crest shape like you see here between both vertical lines you made.

Step 4.

Up next, begin drawing the serpent. This seems to be a cobra head style snake, so go ahead and complete this task now.

Step 5.

You will now begin the outline for the lion which is just the head, and front legs/paws for now.

Step 6.

Finish the shape or outline of the lion. This should include the back legs, and long tail.

Step 7.

Start the formation of the eagle and when you do this be sure to just draw the body and not the wings.

Step 8.

Now you can draw in the beak and eagle wings. The wings are almost drawn in a tribal like style.

Step 9.

Now you can tackle the task of drawing the badger. Take your time until you have an outlined image of the badger.

Step 10.

And lastly, draw in the letter H at the center of the crest or badge, then color it in as well as make a small horizontal line going between the snake and eagle. Erase whatever mistakes you might have made.

Step 11.

That's it, either color the animals in solid, or draw actual faces in a detailed manner.

I don't know how many Harry Potter fans are still left, but here is a lesson that many will enjoy. I will show you "how to draw the Hogwarts crest", step by step. Whenever you draw logos you have to make sure that they are as accurate as possible. I will sometimes make a lesson easy for others to tackle by eliminating some of the smaller pieces that makes up a logo. That is not the case with this tut though, I did manage to include everything. The image or crest has all three animals for every house; the lion belongs to Gryffindor, the serpent belongs to the Slytherin, the badger belongs to Hufflepuff, and the eagle is for Ravenclaw. Anyways, have fun all you Harry Potter fans. I shall return with more for ya'll.
