Massive castles are a sight to behold. At first they were build to protect the inhabitants and the surrounding areas. Later they evolved into decorated residents for the nobility.
Castles have also long been an important part of fairy tale illustrations. Have you seen the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland?
Drawing a cartoon castle is easy. There are a lot of details but they are all easy to draw. Would you like to draw your very own cartoon castle?

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Castle
Begin by drawing three straight lines that meet at right angles, forming the shape of a square with no bottom. This will outline the front of the castle.
Extend horizontal straight lines from the sides of the square. Draw a straight line downward from each previous line, and enclose the form using a curved line. You have just extended the castle walls to form towers.
You will now draw a similar, but larger, pattern atop the front of the castle. Extend the top line of the castle front on each side, and draw short, straight lines upwards. Then, use short, straight lines to draw a pattern of convex and concave rectangles, forming the upper wall.
Draw another tower extending from the side of the castle. Use short, straight lines to draw a convex and concave rectangular pattern, forming the upper wall of the tower.
Draw a long, narrow rectangle on top of the left castle wall. On the right, draw the upper wall of the small tower using short, straight lines to form a pattern of convex and concave rectangles.
Draw windows on the castle towers. Begin by drawing a square shape with no top. Then, enclose the shape using a curved line. Finally, draw a set of perpendicular lines across the window.
Add the detail of stone to the castle. Draw squares and rectangles of various sizes across the castle walls.
Place your castle on solid ground. Extend gently curving lines from the sides of the castle to indicate the horizon. From the castle gate, draw two straight lines that gradually diverge. This forms a path or road to the castle gate. Detail the terrain by adding straight lines across the road and grassy patches of short, curved lines across the ground.
