Guitars are one of my favorite musical instruments that I love listening to, and try to play. Some of my favorite musicians have off the wall guitar solos that make me want to slip into a perfect rhythmic comma. For my second submission, I am going to have some fun teaching you guys "how to draw a tribal guitar". What better way to express how you love music, by getting an a real clean looking tribal guitar design on your shoulder, leg, or arm. I had fun drawing this pattern because it wasn't to difficult to create. I have grown to love drawing tribal art because it enables my creative mind work more peacefully, and efficiently. Sometimes my patterns may come out looking a bit odd, messed up or funny. But that is all part of the motto “practice makes perfect”. I know I'm not perfect yet, but in time I will be. One thing you have to remember about drawing tribal art, the lines and shapes have to flow within each other so they look unified and in the end look like a hole piece instead of shattered or scattered pieces that have no purpose. Anyway, just keep trying and remember to sketch out your designs at first instead of inking them out. This way, if you make any mistakes you can go back to the messed up area, look at it, and asses the fix up. That will do it for me with this tutorial. I shall return with some other lessons that may or may not rock your world. Adios me amigos!

How to Draw a Tribal Guitar

how to draw a tribal guitar step 1

STEP 1.

The first thing you need to do is draw a large tear drop like shape for the base of the guitar. Next draw a long vertical line that starts at the bottom of the tear drop, all the way to the top which is of course the neck, and the headstock.

STEP 2.

You will now start slowly sketching out the headstock along with the outlined shape of the silhouetted tuning keys. Proceed down until you form half of the guitar's neck which will end in a crescent shape or a "C".

STEP 3.

Finish sketching out the neck, and then start slowly and lightly sketch out the body of the tribal guitar. Don't draw out this part completely, leave an empty spot for later use. Add some swirls and designs like you see here, and then draw the small swirl in between the middle of the neck.

STEP 4.

For your last drawing step all you have to do is draw the rest of the guitar's body shape in a swirl like pattern. You can also choose to draw a pattern of your own creation if you like just to stay your creative mind working. Erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your drawing!

STEP 5.

This is what your tribal guitar comes out looking like when you're done. Color it in to look like a silhouette, or leave it as an empty hollow design that you can take to your tattoo parlor. I had fun, did you have fun? Well, I know you did a great job. See you guys again real soon.
