Step-by-Step Guide: How to Draw a Crown

Follow these easy steps and illustrated images to create a beautiful crown drawing:

  1. Base and Sides
    Using your ruler and pencil, draw the base, sides, and points where the inverted arcs meet. Start by drawing a 6-inch line centered near the bottom of your paper. Draw another line parallel to the first line, 1/4 inch above it. Then, measure 1/2 inch up and draw two more parallel lines, with the second line 1/4 inch above, mirroring the bottom. Use your ruler to draw 2-inch vertical lines at the ends of the crown. Move 1 inch inwards and draw 1 1/2-inch vertical lines. Finally, in the middle of the line, draw a 3-inch vertical line.

  2. Curved Lines
    Incorporate curved lines to show that the crown is rounded. Place your large round object at the bottom of the crown and move it down until the edge is approximately 1 inch away from the middle. Trace two sets of lines, spaced 1/4 inch apart, going downward and away from the base of the crown. Shift your round object to trace two sets of curved lines just above the base of the crown, and repeat the process above the straight parallel lines. Adding Crown Shape

  3. Inverted Arcs
    Connect the ends of the vertical lines using curved lines to form inverted arcs. Ensure that the arcs mirror each other. Refer to the illustration for guidance. Sketching the Top of the Crown

  4. Balls and Perspective Lines
    Add balls at the top of the arcs and perspective lines along the top edge of the arcs. Draw the balls so that you can see the top of the arc inside each ball. Starting from the left side, draw a line following the curve down, then pick it up at the top of the short line. Repeat the process on the right side. See the illustration for reference.

  5. Adornment
    Enhance your crown with decorations. Along the middle of the bottom band, add small circles on each vertical line. On the top band, alternate between large and small double circles on each vertical line. Sketching Jewels for the Crown

  6. Refining and Outlining
    Use the eraser to remove any background lines. Clean up the framework of the crown. Afterwards, trace over the final lines with a fine-tipped permanent marker. Erase any lingering pencil marks. Adding Jewels to the Crown Drawing

  7. Detailing
    Use the fine-tipped permanent marker to add hatch marks and other intricate details to each section of the crown. This will further enhance the overall appearance. Adding Shading to the Crown Drawing
