How to Draw the Olympic Rings


We will start off by drawing the olive branches first. Make it in a horseshoe like shape.


Starting in the middle, draw one of the five rings like so.


Next, draw a second ring to the left of the first one you drew. This ring should be raised a bit higher as you can see.


The third ring is added and when this step is complete, the symbol ends up looking like a rounded tri-force.


Simple add the fourth ring which should be drawn evenly with the very first ring you made in step two.


Lastly, draw the final ring like so, then proceed to step seven were you will start drawing the leaves for the olive branch.


Start with drawing the stems of the branches like so. Once you draw it out, color it in.


Draw the second stem and color that in as well. The stems need to crisscross one another.


We can start drawing the leaves now. They are like fork shapes or shapes that form a V. Color them in.


Continue to draw the leaves on an upward spiral forming a curve on both sides.


Almost done, draw and color in two more leaves, and notice how they are getting smaller the further you go up.


And again... Color them in once they are drawn out.


And again.


Finally, draw the last of the leaves and when you do this make sure the tip has a solid leaf that is not fully bloomed. Erase whatever mistakes you may have made.


And here is your Olympic rings when you are all done. Color in the rings using red, black, blue, yellow, and green.

Description: Guess what guys, it's that time of year again where we will be watching the Olympics on television, in person, or on our mobile devices. To celebrate the games here is a lesson on "how to draw the Olympic rings", step by step. The symbol is made up of five rings with an intertwined olive branch that forms a horseshoe like shape that cups the rings. Back in 1931 Pierre de Coubertin said "The Olympic flag has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the center; blue, yellow, black, green and red. This design is symbolic, it represents the five inhabited continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colors are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.". There it is in a nut shell, the meaning of the Olympic rings and what they stand for. Now you can go ahead and have fun recreating the symbol for your own purpose. I hope you like this lesson, I will be back with a few more. Peace out and enjoy the games.
