Today we’re going to draw a robot. Robots are easy to draw because you can assemble a robot drawing from simple shapes. The following easy step-by-step robot drawing tutorial has only ten steps.

We’ll start by drawing simple shapes. The shapes will help to make the robot drawing symmetrical. Begin sketching very lightly. Don’t draw thick lines that are hard to erase during the drawing process.

In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.

​You don't need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
