Step 1

So, we will begin to draw a pyramid with a non-isosceles triangle. We made the bottom line parallel to the horizon, the left line is slightly shorter and the right one is slightly longer. That is, at this stage the triangle should be as if inclined.

Let’s turn a triangle sketch into a pyramid drawing by adding a couple of extra lines. At this stage, the left and right edges of the pyramid should have the same slope.

Let’s now add a little life and volume to our pyramid drawing. The sand under it and the pyramid itself will be painted in shades of sandy yellow. The sky behind the pyramid will be traditionally blue, but you can paint a red sky as a reference to films about mummies or ancient legends.

As we said at the very beginning, the pyramid is a very simple structure to build. This explains why such a grandiose structure, which was the tomb of the pharaohs, was built in the shape of a pyramid. The fact is that in ancient times, mankind did not know how to build tall objects so that, due to their size and weight, they did not fall apart, and therefore architects of antiquity chose this form.

And as you probably already could see, the pyramid is not only easy to build, but also to draw. In the future, we are going to create a lot of other lessons about different buildings, so do not forget to subscribe to us on social networks so as not to miss a single lesson from Easydrawingart.com.
