How to Draw a Crown Easily Step by Step
Step 1: Draw the Base of the Crown
First of all, you have to start from the base of the crown. So, get ready with your basic drawing supplies and start crown drawing.
You need to begin with an ellipse. The surface area shouldn’t be as big as it will be on the head side.
Step 2: Make the Base Bold
To make the base look more strong and bold, draw another ellipse similarly around it. Now, your crown base is ready.
If you want, you can skip this step. But making the base bold will help you to make the crown look more beautiful.
Step 3: Draw the Lower Sides
Now, you have to draw the sides of the crown. First start with the lower sides which is close to the base and head. You can easily draw the sides with slightly curved lines. Draw a curved line on each side.
Step 4: Make the Upper Rim
After drawing the sides, you have to draw the rim of the crown. Follow the upper part of the crown sides.
Now, join two parallel lines from one side to another following the reference. For your convenience, I have marked all the new stages in red. So, follow them properly to get the best result.
Step 5: Create the Crown Structure
At this stage, I have drawn two long slightly curved lines on each side of the crown. These will be the upper long sides.
Now, use the U pattern and join one corner with the other one. You will see that the crown shape is forming gradually.
Step 6: Draw the Crown Back
Now, you have to draw the backside of the crown. Here I have used four reverse V shapes to make the backside of the crown. I have drawn them inside each U shape as you can see in the reference.
Step 7: Add the Decorative Jewels
Finally, it’s time to draw the main feature of a crown which is the jewels. I have added so many jewels to this crown for decorative purposes. I have only used ellipses for the decoration. You can add as per your imagination.
Color the Drawing
Though coloring is not mandatory, colors make any drawing more beautiful. So, I have used watercolor markers as my coloring tools.
I have used shades of yellow for the crown body and blue and pink for the precious jewels of the crown. Don’t forget to outline the whole drawing with a black marker after the completion of the color.
