How to Draw the Eiffel Tower

Step 1.

First you will need a ruler , or anything long and straight . Begin with making the escape point with as many intersecting axes as you think is necessary . Then sketch the basic shape of the tower following the axes .

Step 2.

Now sketch the outlines and some details .

Step 3.

Make the final details .

Step 4.

Your sketch should look a little bit like this. In this part , I've already started to sketch the details on the towers legs . What I did was simply.....drawing the UK flag on them, I'm not even kidding . Do that for the two front legs , making 2 flags on each .

Step 5.

As you can see, I've started filling in with black. I used a mechanical 0.7mm 2B pencil . If you don't have one, use a normal 2B pencil , or a darker one , but you'll have to sharpen that more often since darker get dull more quickly .Take your time, this is meticulous work.

Step 6.

The legs in the back had a very complex series of frames which provide support to the tower.I was impossible to draw the exactly as they were in the original picture, but since they were so complex and mostly dark, I made my own model . Mine is more simplified , you can copy mine or make your own.

Step 7.

The first floor is done . Don't fill in all the spaces on the other leg.

Step 8.

Do the exact same thing for the legs on the second floor , but this time make 3 "flags"

Step 9.

Now , for the third part , make a series of Xs instead of "flags" . The two legs join at the top , make the Xs smaller as you go higher , then fill in with black around them .
