How to Draw A Fancy Letter K
We are using the capitalized version of the letter K. You will notice that the design is quite curved and stylized to give you the desired fancy effect.
As mentioned above, writing this letter can be difficult. That might make things tricky, so let’s plan the drawing first.
To do this, start by finding the lightest pencil you can find. If you only have a regular pencil, press lightly on the side so the lines don’t get too dark.
Then you can draw a capital letter K. You can base it on the letter K in this sentence because it doesn’t need to look like the final drawing.
It’s just there to guide you and make sure it’s designed the way it should be. Once it is written, we will draw the first details.
On the left side of the letter, you will see that we are drawing spiral shapes. These make the letter elegant and stylish, and now let’s draw the first one.
Start with a curved line that rounds off to the left. The reference image shows that it then flips down and around and rolls.
After drawing this first spiral, we can proceed to the second step of the guide.
You’ll see that we split the letter K in this design in half. Next, we draw the left side of the letter.
We first draw some spiral lines from the first step to do this. These lines run vertically with a slight ripple.
The closer you get to the base of this shape, the more this shape gradually curls to the left. Then it forms an arc into another spiral.
This spiral will be larger than the first and rotate oppositely. It may not look like the letter K now, but everything will fall into place in the next step.
Once this side is drawn, the next step is to add the second half of the letter K.
Now let’s draw the right side of this cool letter K. The other half will look very different from the first since no spirals exist.
For this half, we draw two wavy and pointed sections. Let’s start with the one in the top half of the letter.
About halfway down the first shape, bend a line steeply upwards. It should curl up so abruptly that it almost touches the first shape.
There is a pointed tip near the first shape, then curls outward again into an arc. This line also ends fairly close to the first shape.
Now we draw the pointed lower part of the letter. Continue where you left off in the previous step and draw a downward vertical line.
This line curls up and ends at a sharp point at the base of the letter. At this point point, pull the line back towards the center of the letter and gradually curve it in.
Eventually, it hits the first shape, just below where the top of this section began. There’s a lot to do, but taking it slow, shouldn’t be too difficult!
When we’re done, we’ll erase all the pencil lines before continuing.
The previous step was quite complex, so now we’ll slow down and simplify things a bit. In this part, we decorate the inside of the letter.
In our reference image,, we did this with some wavy lines throughout the letter. But this is just one way to decorate the interior!
For example, you could use straighter lines. This would give the interior a sleeker look, which might suit some tastes better.
You can also fill the inside with color or maybe some small shapes. It’s up to you whether you want to create our design or show us one of your designs!
When you are happy with how the inside of the letter looks, the next step is to add some more details around the letter.
This is another step where we give you a hint to experiment with. We’ve added a few flourishes to the letter to give you some details you can add.
For example, we added spiral lines to some letter suggestions. So we’ve surrounded one of these spirals with some small teardrop shapes.
We also drew a series of dots around specific areas of the letter to create an even more intricate look. We kept these details to a minimum in our design, but you can add more if needed.
Or you may want to add some in different places in the letter. There are many options, so you can experiment and find what works best for you.
There is also plenty of free space in the background to play with. It could be filled with solid colors, or you could draw fun shapes and other details.
You can experiment in the meantime, but we will also discuss some themes and ideas you can use for wallpaper in the next step.
Speaking of the step, let’s move on to step 6 and color your fancy letter K.
It’s time to pick out your favorite paint sets and media while we add some color to your drawing! Now it’s time to get creative and show what you can do.
Our reference image only shows you one way to colorize your image. We chose a light green color for the letter, which gives it a soft and elegant look.
If you like the look, you can use that color, but you can use many other colors instead. It doesn’t even have to be just one color!
You can fill the design with a wide range of colors and details to make it stand out. Mixing different media allows you to emphasize or blend-specific colors depending on what you want.
You can show off what colors you want for this design by letting your creativity run wild!
Remember to color the background and surrounding details as well.
Now we have to try a few final ideas. So let’s see how else we can make this drawing even cooler!
