How to Draw a Weapon

Artist: Dawn / March 23, 2010

Step 1.

You will start by drawing out the shape of the barrel and receiver. Once that is done you can sketch out the butt or stock.

Step 2.

You will now start sketching out the cylinder which houses the bullets. If you want you can enlarge the steps to see all the grooves, and notches you will have to draw so that your magnum comes out look accurate.

Step 3.

Start sketching out the actual steel make up of the revolvers body like you see here. Draw the actual shape of the guns anatomy, and then draw the hammer, trigger, and finger holster. Add some notches on the cylinder, and then move to the next step.

Step 4.

The magnum comes with or without a rubber grip. Whether your gun has one or not, you will need to draw in the shape and style of the weapons grip as you see here. Next draw the ejector rod that is the small shape that looks like a match on the barrel   

Step 5.

For your last drawing step all you need to do now is slowly sketch out the barrel, and be sure to add all three notches on the top of the gun, and the front sight notch. Add some detailing and definition, then you are ready to start erasing all the g   

Step 6.

This is how the weapon looks when you are done. See, that wasn't so hard to draw was it? You can go ahead and color in the revolver. I had fun drawing a weapon with you all today, and maybe I will do another lesson on another popular gun. If you have

Description: Clint Eastwood was best known for his role he played in a movie called "Dirty Harry", as well as all of the western movies he did like "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly". The reason why I mention Clint with this lesson is because he is responsible for the gained popularity of the .44 magnum. Now I'm not going to sit here and go into detail about this weapon because to tell you the truth I already did that with the lesson I uploaded three years ago called "how to draw a .44 magnum". Instead I figured I would just do an updated version of what the magnum of today looks like. The version I drew looks very much like Clint Eastwood's gun he used in the movie Dirty Harry. If you go to a gun shop today, and you are looking for a brand new .44 magnum, you will find one that looks a lot like the you see here. My grandfather actually wants to buy one of these guns because he is going hunting up north this year, and there is a lot of bears. A magnum will blow a hole in a person or animal with no problem at all. In fact, the process of being shot with one of these guns is so massive, that the bullet moves through you like a hot knife cutting butter. A .44 magnum can go straight threw an engine block, and the bullet will keep traveling as it exits out the other side. I had a really fun time drawing this gun, and I know you guys will enjoy this tutorial because it will teach you "how to draw a weapon", no I take that back, you will learn "how to draw a magnum", with ease. I will be back with one more tutorial for you all so stay tuned in, and try and keep those hands happy. Adios people, and remember to ask yourselves one question, "do you feel lucky punk"?
