Step-by-Step Instructions
for Drawing a Cartoon Castle

How to draw a cartoon ninja 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.

How to draw a cartoon ninja 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.

How to draw a cartoon ninja 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.

How to draw a cartoon ninja 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.

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 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.

Enclose rectangular shapes atop the castle front, again making one shape larger than the other.

Enclose a triangle atop each of the tall towers using two straight lines. This will form the tower roof.

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.

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.

Draw vertical lines across the arched doorway to indicate planks of wood.

Draw a narrow, horizontal rectangle across the doorway.

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 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.

Add the detail of stone to the castle. Draw squares and rectangles of various sizes across the castle walls.

How to draw a cartoon ninja 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.

How to draw a cartoon ninja 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.

How to draw a cartoon ninja Step: 20

Erase the extra lines from the gate.
