Today in this super simple drawing tutorial the team of Drawingforall.net will show you how to draw a telescope. In this drawing instruction, there will be a lot of straight lines, and we hope that you will be able to draw them without difficulty. Of course, you can use the eraser, but to become a real pro artist, try to do without it.
Any drawing guide begins with preparatory steps, and the lesson about how to draw a telescope is no exception. So, first of all draw out a long cylinder, this will be the body of our telescope.
Draw two curved lines on the body of the telescope, as shown in our example. Of course, telescopes come in all sorts of different kinds, so you can draw other additional lines that will distinguish your telescope drawing from ours.
Draw out the focuser and eyepiece at the left side of the telescope. This step seems to be quite complicated, because there are a lot of lines and details, albeit small ones, but if you are careful, you can easily repeat everything you see in front of you.
At the top of the telescope draw out the finder scope. This detail also comes in many different styles and sizes, so you can slightly modify the “sight” of the telescope.
At the lower part of the telescope draw out the mount. It essentially consists of two simple circles and a cylindrical figure between them.
Below the mount draw out a tripod using clear and straight lines. By the way, in our tutorial about how to draw a tripod you can learn to draw it in detail.
Now, using hatching add shadows. This will make our telescope drawing more three-dimensional and realistic.
So, in this drawing lesson we showed you how to draw a telescope. Here we applied an unusual technique of drawing – we drew a telescope without the use of guidelines, that is, we immediately drew clear and dark lines.
