Bang! Pow! Many early children’s cartoons, such as the Looney Tunes, included the use of guns. Iconic characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Tom and Jerry, Yosemite Sam, Speedy Gonzales, and Wile E. Coyote, were often seen firing these weapons. More often than not, though, the result was a “bang” with no bullet – perhaps a little flag extending from the tip of the weapon. Some of the more violent scenes have been edited from television re-runs of the cartoon series.

The revolver, the type of gun featured in this step-by-step drawing guide, has been in existence since the 1580’s. The style still in use today was patented by Samuel Colt in 1836. By 1857, Smith and Wesson were also producing weapons based on this patent.

To draw a cartoon revolver, you will need only a piece of paper and a pencil. You may also wish to acquire an eraser to correct any mistakes, and colored pencils, crayons, or markers to color your completed drawing.

Each step in this simple drawing guide is accompanied by a an illustration. In each picture, lines added in the current step are highlighted in blue; lines drawn in previous steps are shown in black. You will need to erase some of your early lines, called guide lines, in order to complete the drawing. Therefore, you may wish to sketch lightly at first.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Gun

How to Draw Cartoon Revolver: Step 1

Begin by drawing a rectangle.

How to Draw Cartoon Revolver: Step 3

Draw two curved lines beneath the rectangle, matching up to the lines within the rectangle.

How to Draw Cartoon Revolver: Step 7

In the center of the figure, draw a square. Draw a curved line from corner to corner on the left exterior side of the square.

How to Draw Cartoon Revolver: Step 8

Draw two straight, parallel lines extending horizontally from the upper right corner of the square. Connect the lines using a short, curved line.

Draw a circle in the middle of the gun grip. Draw a curved line through the middle of the circle.

Texture the gun grip using a cross hatching technique. To draw cross hatching, draw a number of parallel, diagonal lines in one direction. Then, draw parallel, diagonal lines running in the opposite direction, crossing the first lines at perpendicular angles. This forms a tic-tac-toe or checkerboard pattern.

How to Draw Cartoon Revolver: Step 19

Add detail to the gun. Draw long, straight lines along the gun barrel. Shade the bottom of the barrel and the central portion of the gun using short, closely spaced lines.

Color the gun. To color it in a classic style, shade the handle brown and the gun itself in various shades of grey.
