  • - The eraser.



Make a general outline of the gun. First, in the middle of the sheet, draw a long narrow oval, located diagonally, with the left edge facing up. This will be the barrel of the gun. Underneath it, at some distance, draw a straight line parallel to the oval.


Connect the line to the muzzle with smooth lines,Located at both ends of a straight line. Thus, draw a gun carriage - a stand under the weapon. Attach the visible wheels - draw circles so that the bottom border of the carriage cuts them almost in half.


Draw the details of the gun barrel. The upper end slightly narrow, and the bottom slightly widen. In the wide part, represent the end - draw a circle, half of which is the extreme boundary of the oval. Now attach the handle of the gun.


Draw rings that are placed in severalPlaces are muzzle weapons. Draw curved lines, their bulges facing the upper end of the barrel and with protruding boundaries beyond the oval. Draw a place for the wick. Label it with a small circle placed on the top of the barrel.

Draw the bottom of the carriage: To the extreme part of the side wall, draw a line that is almost at right angles to it. Again, draw the thickness of the board by drawing a second straight line parallel to the first one. Walk through all visible parts of the gun carriage with short strokes to give the appearance of the structure of the tree.


Draw the wheels in detail. Draw out ovals diagonally in one direction with the inclination of the cannon. Divide them by convex lines, separating the visible side part from the top, which is an indicator of the thickness of the wheel. In the middle of the wheels draw the fasteners.


Done the details of the gun. Draw the supports under the wheels, first representing them with a cube. Also draw the cannon balls - small circles, whose diameter should not exceed the size of the thinnest part of the barrel.
