How to Draw a Chain

Artist: Dawn / April 17, 2011

Step 1.

This is a step by step sketch on how to draw a chain using a link by link manner. Start by drawing the first link, and then draw the connector, and then draw in another link.

Step 2.

Now lets draw the chain in an even more detailed manner. Start by drawing a straight guideline on a slanted angle like you see here.

Step 3.

Now on that guideline that you drew in step one, start drawing each shape of the three part chain link and then move to step four.

Step 4.

Draw the lining that makes each link a shape, and then draw a connecting link to each piece of chain like you see here.

Step 5.

End the final step by drawing more of the last two links, and then erase the one guideline that you drew in step two.

Step 6.

This is what your chain should come out looking like once you have finished with your drawing lesson. Now you are ready to use what you just learned in something great. Thanks for joining me with this tutorial on how to draw chains.

Description: Hello once again and welcome back to another fun filled tutorial that you may or may not like. I will first start by submitting this lesson on "how to draw a chain", step by step. As you know chains can sometimes be very confusing to draw and I think its because of the complexity of making each link connect in a uniform and neat manner. I’ve submitted a few lessons over time that included some tip steps on how to draw chains and some of the reasons why I included these tips, is because there was either a chain involved with the picture, or a chain was being used as a character weapon. The tutorial is going to be easy, and I included a sketch that shows you a few ways that you can draw a chain link. This will enable you to have some idea as to knowing the first step to making chains the right way.
