Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Castle
How to Draw a Great Looking Cartoon Castle for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
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.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 2
Draw a curved line within the open square. Extend straight lines downward from the curve, and connect these to the sides of the square using short, curved lines. You have now outlined the castle doorway.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 3
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.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 4
Extend the top line of each tower, then draw a straight line upwards. Form the top of the tower wall by using short, straight lines to draw a convex and concave square pattern.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 5
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.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 6
Draw a slightly smaller archway within the arch of the door, and connect it to the castle front using short, straight lines. Enclose the shape of the doorway using a straight line. Enclose rectangular shapes on each side of the castle, one taller than the other.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 7
Enclose rectangular shapes atop the castle front, again making one shape larger than the other.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 8
Draw the upper wall on each of the previous shapes. Extend the upper line of each shape, then use short, straight lines to draw a convex and concave rectangular pattern
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 9
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.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 10
Enclose a triangle atop each of the tall towers using two straight lines. This will form the tower roof.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 11
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.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 12
Enclose a triangular roof above the small tower. Extend a curved line upward from the portion of the castle wall on the left. Draw a wall of convex and concave rectangles atop the curved line to enclose this portion of the castle roof.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 13
Draw vertical lines across the arched doorway to indicate planks of wood.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 14
Draw a narrow, horizontal rectangle across the doorway.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 15
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.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 16
Add the detail of shingles to the tower roofs. For the triangular roofs, draw curved horizontal lines. Then draw short, straight lines between the curves. For the flat portion of the roof, draw straight horizontal lines connected by short, curved lines.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 17
Add the detail of stone to the castle. Draw squares and rectangles of various sizes across the castle walls.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 18
Draw flags, or pennants, atop the towers. Extend a straight, vertical line from each tower. Place a dot at the end of each line. Then, draw two curved lines extending outward, allowing the lines to meet in a point to form the flag.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 19
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.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 20
Erase the extra lines from the gate.
Easy Cartoon Castle Drawing - Step 21
Color your castle. Shade in brown or gray to indicate realism, or make it pink or purple for a pretty fairy tale princess.
