The fun part about drawing a robot is that you can do a completely new kind of robot every time you draw. And, you can practically keep drawing all day long and still have a different kind of robots. They can be really simple and they can also be very realistic and sophisticated too. Here we shall see how to draw a robot using simple geometric shapes like squares for example.
- Get your Supplies First
This is simple. All you need is a piece of paper and a pencil. The kind of paper or quality of paper does not matter here at all. Just try to find something clean like a white sheet of A4 paper or maybe from your notebook. Do not use something like a magazine cover or something because you can’t see clearly what you are drawing. Secondly, get a pen, a marker, a sketch pen or just an HB pencil. You can actually get a drawing book if you happen to have and start on a fresh page. Sharpen your pencil and get an eraser as well if you like that way.
- Start with a Nice Big Square at the Center of the Paper
So, hold your pencil or marker and draw a nice big square right at the center of your paper. Not too big either so that you can draw the legs and hands and stuff. This is going to be the chest and belly so imagine a big person. Once you are done with it draws some rectangles now. These shall be the shoulders and part below the belly of the robot.
- Draw the Belt, Neck, and Shoulders
Now draw few rectangles. A small one below the square, little smaller than both the right and left edges. This is the belt of the robot just like you wear it. This is the waist and it is smaller than the belly. It is much shorter than the chest too. Now, draw two rectangles on the right and left sides of the big square. These are like placed on top of it. They are shorter too reaching the length of the chest only. So, about half of the height of the square. And, finally one in the middle of the top of the square. This is also smaller because it will be the neck of the robot. It is smaller from the right and left sides and shorter in height too.
- Draw the Head Now
The head of the robot is also a big square now. The square sits on top of the neck with the same length on both sides of the neck. Start with a line first on the neck. Then, extend it towards the top straight upwards and another across joining the two to complete the square. You can also draw a square right away that touches the neck with half of it on the left of it and the half on the right, that is, even on both sides. This square is also big, but little smaller than the first squares, the one for the chest and belly combined.
- Draw the Eyes
This is going to circle actually. Well, you can also your squares for the eyes as well, but circles look nice. Draw two circles inside the hear square. One on right and one on the left side of the square. Keep them towards the corners so that you have space for the nose and the mouth. The robot has all squares and rectangles but maybe this one we let just be circles. You can draw two more circles inside these circles now and fill them completely by sketching with your marker to look dark. If you are using a black marker it will be like two black blobs.
- Draw the Mouth and Teeth
Now draw two lines across the lower part of the head. This space must be there because you had drawn the circles towards the top side. The lines are close to each other. Join both these lines on the left and right sides with small half circles. You can also just join them straight. Now, to put teeth draw some lines straight into these small rectangles you just completed. Make three or four lines inside joining the top line to the bottom one.
- Draw the Arm and Hands
Now, draw a rectangle, a long but thin one on the left shoulder of the robot. The shoulder was a smaller rectangle that we had drawn earlier in Step Three. The arm is just a rectangle. You can draw the hand now as a small square right below this long rectangle. Do the same on the right side too.
- Draw the Legs
Now, just like the arms draw one long rectangle from the under the belt. A long but thin rectangle. Draw a small rectangle below this leg. These will the shoes. Do the same on the right side. So, you have now two legs. So, we have drawn a robot now.
