How to Draw USMC Symbol


Start off by drawing a circle for the earth.


Next, draw the guidelines for the anchor which looks like is piercing the earth. Once that is done you can draw in the guides for the eagle. This includes the head, body and wing guidelines.


Fill the globe with horizontal lines followed by the shapes of north and south America.


Now you will use the guides to begin sketching out the simple shaped eagle. Start with the head then draw out the wing span followed by the legs and talons.


Next, sketch in all of the feather detailing that covers the entire body and wings of the eagle. Once that is done draw the eye, beak and tail.


Here you will draw the top half of the anchor followed by the rope that is looped through the eyehole. Add detailing to both the anchor and rope.


Finish drawing the anchor like so, and be sure that both sides are pointed as well as the end tip of the anchor. Draw the rest of the rope that is wrapped around the bottom of the anchor, then proceed to step eight.


The last thing you have to do is draw the ribbon that is attached to the eagles mouth. On the ribbon you have to write the latin words which in English read 'Always Faithful'. Once you are done you can erase your mistakes.


Here is how the drawing looks once you are done. Now you can color in the emblem and show folks what you have done.

Description: I got more than a couple requests for this next symbol so I might as well make a tutorial out of it. I know more and more young men and women are joining the Marine Corps after they get out of school to help pay for college to further their education so I guess you will be seeing this symbol a lot more if you know someone who is either joining or is in the corps. Up next we will be learning "how to draw the USMC" eagle or symbol, step by step. The symbol appears to be an image of the world followed by an anchor and an eagle.
