Another big band favorite of mine was only around for a short while until the singer died at the age of 28 years old. Today I will show you how to draw out the letters for The Doors. Let’s talk about this unique band for a second because I love them so much. The Doors was also an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1965. The band only had four members but these four members still stand the test of time today. First we have the one and only Jim Morrison which was the vocalist, Ray Manzarek on the keyboard, John Densmore on drums and famous guitars Robby Krieger. What made the Doors so special was the style of their music which mad them a controversial band as well. Jim Morrison was the back bone of the band and he was the one person that kids and adults came to see all from all over the world. His lyrics and his style of singing on stage made him an idol to a lot of young men and women. The way he disregarded the law and how he used to defy doing the right thing made him a character that most people wish they could be, Jim Morrison was one of the most charismatic and influential frontmen in rock music history. He was born on December 8, 1943 and died July 3, 1971; the names used by people that worshiped him were The Lizard King, Mr. Mojo Risin, and The Black Clad Leather Demon. Not only was he a singer but he was also poet and filmmaker, the love of his life was Pamela Courson. The two shared a unique bond and commitment to each other. They met before Jim was a popular singer/songwriter. They shared a common respect and interest for each other she would put up with his lies and deception even though they agreed to have an open relationship where she gave Jim permission to sleep around with a number of other women. They both loved each other dearly but Pam starting feeling like she needed to seek out revenge for all the cheating that Jim was doing especially when he performed a ritual with rock critic and science fiction/fantasy author Patricia Kennealy. The type of ritual performed by the two was a ceremonial marriage, but the paper work was never filed to make it legitimate. The Doors was a band that many loved and desired, they released a total of 9 studio albums which are as follows; The Doors 1967, Strange Days 1967, Waiting for the Sun 1968, The Soft Parade 1969, Morrison Hotel 1970, L.A. Woman 1971, Other Voices, Full Circle, and An American Prayer: Jim Morrison. This tutorial will show you how to draw the letters for The Doors step by step. The instructions are super easy to understand and read. So sit back and put on your favorite Doors tune while you draw the letters to an American legend.

Now you can start to draw out and shape the five letters using the guidelines you drew in step 1. As you can see from the image above the letters are nothing more then squares and circles. The "O's" look like screws. Just look at the image and draw every red lined shape the way you see it here.
