How to Draw Pyramids

Step 1.

First draw it like this. Imagine that pyramid on your paper. Start with the basic shape of the whole pyramid.

Step 2.

Add a line in the dead middle of the pyramid. This will cause some symmetry to stir up the 3D look of the pyramid. Once you've completed this, you'll probably think "drawing pyramids can be easy". Get ready to move onto the next step.

Step 3.

You probably guessed right that this step was going to be the guidelines for the blocks. Draw the lines for those blocks and move onto the next step.

Step 4.

Add some more lines for the formation of the blocks. This will give off the form of a real pyramid.

Step 5.

Once you've finished all those lines; you have yourself a very nice looking pyramid. This should be very easy for all you novice artists. I hope you enjoyed Snake King's tutorial on how to draw pyramids step by step.

Hey everyone, I'm rewriting Snake King's tutorial on "how to draw pyramids". When I signed on today to see if there were any submitted tutorials, I found this one and looked over it. It's a pretty good tutorial; neat and clean. I really like the use of the background. I give a whole lot of thanks to Snake King who submitted a very nice tutorial. Let me go on a little informational rant about this tutorial. I'm pretty sure most of you are familiar with King Tut, right? He used to be a king of ancient Egypt. Pyramids were built to serve as tombs for the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt. I'm a huge fan of Ancient civilizations. They have this uniqueness about them that drag my interest in. Anyways, there are underground chambers in these pyramids that host the tombs. It's kinda like the pyramid in the movie 'Aliens vs. Predator'. Has anyone seen the anime series 'Yu-gi-oh'? Some of the episodes of this series have appearances of pyramids. I'm not sure if the pyramids were used as tombs in that series. The last time I remembered seeing a pyramid, was when the sacred battle pendant things were hosted on a wall. I believe if you collected them all, you'd get a very powerful card of some sort. If your a fan of the pyramids in that anime series, then you'll probably find yourself drawing pyramids all the time. You'll probably draw them as backgrounds for the Yu-gi-oh characters. I hope you'll enjoy this tutorial that Snake King made on how to draw pyramids step by step.
