How to Draw a Fire Hydrant, Fire Hydrant

Step 1.

Make two simple guidelines. One long vertical line and another shorter horizontal line at the base of the guide.

Step 2.

Next, draw out the stem of the hydrant like so, and then draw in the base which is in two pieces. Fire hydrants are made of some kind of iron which is why they are extremely durable. Once you have finished with this step, move along.

Step 3.

Starting at the tip of the vertical guide, begin drawing out a bow like shape for the top of the hydrant. Draw the bolts at the top like so, and then draw in the grooves on that cap as well as the thick band like you see here. It should come out look   

Step 4.

For the last step, all you have to do is draw out the two valves on both sides of the hydrant like so. Once that is done you can draw in more of the groove lines which adds character to the fire hydrant. Erase the mistakes and you're done.

Step 5.

Here is the line art once you are all done. Now you can use your new hydrant in a picture that you can prepare with a fire truck.
