We really like to draw, but no less than that, we like to play musical instruments. In one of the previous drawing lessons we showed you how to draw a guitar, and here we want to continue the topic of stringed instruments and have created a lesson on how to draw a violin.
Let’s first sketch out an oval and circle, as we did in the example below.
Using a pair of curved lines connect the circle and oval. Using straight lines sketch out the fingerboard.
Draw out the check rest, tail piece, scroll and tuning pegs on the fingerboard of the violin.
Now draw the straight strings as in our example and fine tunes. If you can, then draw the strings without using a ruler.
Erase all the needless guidelines that we drew in the previois steps and draw out two f-holes on the body of violin.
At the end of our lesson on how to draw a violin, we want to give you a couple of tips, by tradition. If you doubt that your drawing is smooth and symmetrical, then just bring it to the mirror and you will see all the errors in the proportions. When drawing strings, be sure to consider the height at which different parts of the strings are riveted so that the violin does not seem flat.
