To draw the key, all you have to do is draw an oval shape for the top of the key's design. You will then add the guidelines in the middle for the skeletal face, and then draw a vertical line for the the key, and then draw the square for the teeth.


You will now draw out the actual shape of the key. This includes the top portion, and the base.


Now, because this type of key is usually designed in two pieces, the bottom of the key which is the teeth, is a separate unit of this keys design. The skeleton key can only be used to open warded locks. Draw in the face, and then erase the guidelines   


Here is what the drawing comes out looking like when you are done. Color it in and you just finished this lesson on "how to draw a key".

Description: Well, like always Fridays are slow days when it comes to Dragoart. For some reason there is never a lot of people, (members and visitors), that hang out on the last day of the work week. I personally think it's because school is finally out for the weekend, and people are just chillin in their houses, or out at the movies. To start the day I will be submitting a lesson that will show you all “how to draw a key”, step by step. Keys are used for almost everything you come into contact with. They are used to lock, and unlock doors, safes, vaults, jewelery boxes, diaries, briefcases, drawers, cabinets, and any other object that requires a key to gain access. Instead of drawing keys that are typically on our key chains, I chose to draw a skeleton key design instead. Skeleton keys are also called “passkeys” and the reason why they are called “skeleton keys”, is because of the fact that only one key is needed to unlock all the doors or locks no matter what type or make of the lock. The drawing is pretty simple, I mean even a six year old can follow the tutorial. But of course six year old are not allowed to sign up, you have to be at least thirteen. To go with the concept, of what the design is supposed to be, I drew the top of the key to look like a simple skull head. And of course in the background is the keyhole that the key fits into. Well, that's it. Hope you have fun learning how to draw a key, step by step. I still have some more lessons to upload so keep an eye out for those. Peace peeps!
