Description: Here's another tutorial that may be cool to a few of your tastes. I've had a few people request I do more weapons tutorials, and here, I've done one on "how to draw a Claymore sword", step by step. This sword is popular among medieval weapons. William Wallace has used this specific Claymore that you see before you. The process to draw the claymore sword wasn't long as I expected it to be since it's basically a long shape with a broad handle. The ribbons tied around the handle is needed if you want this to be associated with William, because he is the defender of Scotland, hence the plaid colors. Anyways, I hope you guys will enjoy this lesson as I had lots of fun to create it. Let me know how you did and don't shut off to requesting tuts!
