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.
