You can see a preview of the different stages of the drawing above. As you will need to do a little bit of erasing in one of the steps you should start the tutorial in pencil and make light lines. You can trace over your drawing later on with a black pen or marker.

Step 1 – Draw the Tip of the Spear

Begin by drawing the tip of the spear shaped as shown above. Make sure that you position it in such a way that you have enough room left on your drawing area for the long pole.

Step 2 – Draw the Pole

Onto the tip add the pole. Make this quite long and fairly thin in comparison.

Step 3 – Draw the Edges

Inside the tip add a few lines to each of the edges to help emphasize their sharp sharpness. Again draw these as shown in the example.

Step 4 – Finish the Line Drawing

To finish the line drawing of the spear first add some leather wrapping to the pole just behind the tip. You can draw this right over top of the it’s outline and erase the little bits where they overlap.

Next make sure that your drawing looks good and then darken your lines by bracing over them with a black pen/marker or simply darken them with the pencil.

Draw 5 – Color the Spear

Finally to color the spear you can make the tip a light grey, the leather wrapping a dark brown and the pole a light yellow/brown.

You can use pretty much any medium you like (paints, markets, colored pencils, etc…) or a mix of a few of them.

Conclusion

Drawing a spear like the one in this tutorial is generally fairly easy. If you find that you are having trouble making the long straight lines such as the ones for the pole you can use a ruler to help you.
