Hello dear readers and welcome to the drawing tutorial on how to draw a xiphos! Xiphos is a Greek straight double-edged short sword about 60 cm long.
Despite the fact that the sword is curved from both sides itself is straight. In order to make it straight let’s draw a straight line.
The majority of swords on our site that we drew have round pommels, but the xiphos has a cylindrical pommel.
Let’s draw the grip of the xiphos. As you can see in the center it is slightly convex.
Continue the drawing tutorial on how to draw a xiphos. In this step we draw the guard.
But the sword is not a sword if it does not have a blade. So draw a characteristic double-edged curved blade of our xyphos.
Very simple, even an elementary step – just erase the line from the first step from the pen.
And this step is already quite complicated – using classic hatching we draw out the shadows and using several short strokes sketch out the glare on the blade.
