How to Draw a Revolver

Artist: Dawn / May 8, 2018

Step 1.

Let's start by drawing the front part of the muzzle and then draw the barrel, top strap and some of the frame.

Step 2.

Next up, we will draw the outlining to form the crank, and barrel where the actual bullets rest in. This will all be detailed in later steps.

Step 3.

Up next, draw the handle or grip. For this particular revolver the grip is fairly compact looking.

Step 4.

As you can see you will be drawing the hollow part of the gun which is also home to the trigger.

Step 5.

Simply draw the cylinder for the barrel, then proceed to step six.

Step 6.

Add the indented detailing to the cylinder, then you can move along once again to step seven.

Step 7.

Add more definition to the frame of the revolver, then draw the hammer which is at the top of the notched shape of the frame.

Step 8.

You will finish things off by sketching out the detailing to the grip. In this case the grip happens to be a rubbery handle like some of the Taurus models. Erase the mistakes and you are done.

Step 9.

That's it, that is all there is to drawing a revolver. I hope you had fun folks, see you again soon.
