Aloha everyone and welcome back to DragoArt. Today I am really excited because the tutorial I am putting up is on another popular gun that has been a part of the worlds history for many wars and battles fought all over. Today you will learn "how to draw a machine gun". I know most of you know exactly what an Uzi is, obviously it is a machine gun that has been in a lot of wars, battles, and from time to time movies. But the fact is there is nothing glamorous about weapons at all. They should never be used to harm innocent individuals and you must always use any form of weapon with care and experience. The history of the Uzi is interesting indeed. First off it is a weapon that originated in Israel and the first Uzi was designed by a gentleman named Uziel Gal who was a captain in the Israeli army. This captain also won a competition for his design of the then new sub machine gun. Uziel began working on the design back in 1940. The submachine gun was manufactured by Israel Military Industries, and FN Herstal. The design of this particular firearm was to use an open bolt blowback system. Now, not only did the gun win awards and contest, but it became an outstanding weapon that happened to be reliable and accurate for this type of machinery. After word started traveling about the mysterious gun that seemed to be a diamond in the ruff, it soon got the attention of the international firearms community. It wasn’t until the 60’s that the original wooden stock was replaced by a more durable metal folding stock and the Uzi also became licensed by a Belgian firearms company named FN as I mentioned earlier. Originally the Uzi is quite larger than the one I drew in the tutorial. In fact the one that you will be learning how to draw today is the Mini Uzi model which is shorter and lighter than the standard model that was originally manufactured. The Mini Uzi was first introduced in the 80’s, and since we are drawing the mini today the specs on this piece of hardware are as follows; with the stock extended it measures in at almost 24 inches, when folded it measures a little over 14 inches long and weighs 7 pounds more or less. There are over 90 countries that use the Uzi for armed forces or for common law enforcement. Another interesting fact about this weapon of time is that it has already reeled in a whopping 2 billion dollars in sales, now that is amazing. In this tutorial you will learn just how easy it is to draw a Mini Uzi sub machine gun step by step. The instructions will help you understand how to draw, detail, and finish your sketch with ease. I hope you have fun and see ya.
