Welcome to Drawstuffrealeasy and today I am going to show you how to draw an Arab Scimitar
First draw the back of the blade very lightly in pencil. Draw lightly so you can erase the
pencil easily when you've inked in the drawing.
we're going to draw the tip of the blade in a moment but for now, drop down a little and
draw the sweeping cutting-edge of the blade that will follow through into the grip.
now choose where the Guard will go and lightly draw a line across the blade with a ball on
either end. then draw a curving v shape over the blade.
next draw in the tip and smooth out your lines if needed. its looking good! sketch in the
cutting edge of the blade and you might also find some arabic decoration on the sword.
Arabic is written from Right to left. If you want to see it being written, go and see this
great video of the word love being written.
now just smooth out the shape of he guard and put a line across the grip just up from
when you are ready to ink start with the balls on the guard. don't quite make them full circles.
then connect them along the line of the guard. the guard stand proud of the blade, so in
a fight the opponents sword will slide under it. with a bit of a twist, you may be able
to snap their sword!
Draww the outline of the handle and the line across.
draw two little curves in the balls to give them a 3d effect, then carefully draw the
back edge of the blade. Take your time and flick it down to a nice sharp point. now draw
the slashing side of the blade and sketch in a hint of the cutting edge.
draw in the pattern and, as I said, this is just scribbling. I don't speak or write arabic,
so I appologies if I've written anything by mistake!
When you are sure the ink is dry, you can erase the pencil lines.
put a jewel in the middle of the cross guard and then put some very subtle hatching along
the grip. put some hatching on the cross guard and then just a few little silver shine marks
across the blade to give the effect of metal reflection.
Now on Drawstuffrealeasy, we usually draw some shading to put it on the table, but I'm
going to leave this suspended in mid air! Go and see this on my website www.shoorayner.com
for the coloured version and step by step guide to print out. the link is in the box
below. If you like my video, please like favourite and sure them with your friends. that way
I'll be able to do lots more. Keep drawing and I'll see you next time. You take care
now, Bye Bye!
