Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a catapult. We're going to start off by drawing a couple planks and draw a diagonal line going up and then one underneath it and connect. We'll make it 3D, draw another diagonal line on top, connect, then shade this little part in. I'm going to do the same thing, go a little further down. So a diagonal line up, same thing underneath it and make it 3D, shade that in and then a diagonal line underneath. On top of these two are going to be some more pieces of wood, one right there that's holding another piece of wood on top of it, connected to this other piece over here. Then we'll shade this one behind like that and we'll draw another couple pieces used as a brace, one holding this piece and one holding this one. Then over here, we're going to draw an axle. It's going to have some rope across it and the actual catapult so to come over that and on top of it here is going to be an oval to make a bowl shape they would load the objects in. And this rope, attached to this as well, connect it to this rope and then some wheels on each side that are used to turn the axle and then another axle on the bottom that the catapult is connected to and then two more axles for some wheels so they can transport the catapult. And that's it, that is how you draw a catapult. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
