Okay boys and girls, this tutorial is on how to draw a military tank. I wanted to sketch a tank for this site because there is already a military helicopter and two rifles, so I figured hey why not. My little cousin loves all kinds of military machines, everything from rifles, to Humvees, to tanks and from tanks to choppers. Yup, he tells me everyday how much he wants to be a solider or a firefighter. He must have at least 300 little army plastic men in a big bucket complete with trees and the whole nine. There is no one person you can link to the creation of the tank; it’s a piece of machinery that has been with all of us for sometime now. These machines have been in production since the eighteenth century, but not as advanced as we have them today of course. The tank was a gradual technological development as we know it that made its debut from the British Army during WWI. Now the base that all those wheels spin on is called the caterpillar track, this was designed in its primitive form back in 1770 by Richard Edgeworth; he built this track because during the Crimean War, the steam powered tractors that were uses on the battlefield had a difficult time handling in the muddy terrain. So during the 1850s the production of the tank was getting so close but then soon faded out until the new century was close to being started, many years later after being in production for so long, and having the development of the tank being so close, in 1899 Frederick Simms designed what he called a motor war car. What was this exactly? Good question, it had a boosted engine, bullet proof shelling, and it came with tow high powered revolving machine guns. This military vehicle was presented and offered to the British army and they in turn walked away from the model, saying that it was of insufficient use to them. Many, many years later we have what you see in front of us today. These military tanks has been an idea for decades, and one day they where finally made good enough to get put to use. This tutorial actually shows you how to draw this military tank with only six simple steps. After you are done with your sketch you can leave it bare or color it in with a camouflage color of your choice. Well I will see you soldiers next time, until then at ease.

How to Draw a Tank

how to draw a military army tank step 1

STEP 1.

Okay as with all machinery that I put up here you will be drawing a series of guidelines for the development of the tank. Start off by drawing a rectangular box around the oval shape that needs to be drawn out for the top of the tank. You will then add the vertical and horizontal guidelines that are slightly slanted as shown.

STEP 2.

In this next step you will draw another oval shape for the track of the tank. This time make the oval shape longer and wider. Next draw out the skinny rectangles that will be that base structure of the tank as you see here. Draw a skinny long oval shape for the cannon barrel and then a slight dent line on top of the tank.

STEP 3.

Now as you can see in this step, you will be drawing the shape and lining of the top of the tank which is where soldiers go in and out from the unit. You will then draw out the wheel shapes that are perfectly round there are seven of them. Once you get them drawn out you can then add the ball looking shapes inside of the wheel well or rim. Define and detail the front of the military tank and then begin adding the track lines in the back left.

STEP 4.

You have finally made it to step four which means you are more than half way done with this drawing lesson. What you will do now is add more track lines in the front of the track and then add the detailing vertical lines along the side. Once you are done with that feat you can start detailing and drawing out the barrel of the cannon. Start the lining of the right track as shown to you here.

STEP 5.

Guess what you have done? That's right, you have made it to your last drawing step. What you will do now is add the definition detailing lines on the haul of the tank and then draw out the two antennas as shown. Detail the wheels and then draw out the track detailing lines on the right as well as the structure of the M1-A1 Abraham tank. Erase all the visible guidelines that you drew in step one.

STEP 6.

This is what your tank should look like when you are done. If you think about it you just learned how to draw a cartoon tank step by step because the finished drawing kinda looks cartoony. All you have to do now is color in your drawing. After you do that you can consider your masterpiece done. Boy that was fun wasn't it? I will see you another time on another day. You did an awesome job learning how to draw a Military Army Tank step by step.
