DISCLAIMER: Guns and Youths are a controversial topic today and I realize many of my readers are
young adults. My intent is only to show you how to draw guns for comic book purposes. If you are under
18, please check with your parents before visiting the handgun websites or continuing with this tutorial.
Please, Help keep Rosie O'Donnell off my back.
The Basic Pistol

The best way to draw a gun is to look at pictures

of guns. These aer available on most major gun
brand websites:

Beats getting the suspicious looks when buying a

gun magazine. Here we have a Glock 26 or
"Baby Glock" 9x19
Basic Shapes

Break the gun down into basic shapes. The more

you know about the mechanics of guns the better
if your a detail freak. I like to just get by. The
major parts of a pistol is the Slide, the Frame and
the Grip (handle).

The Guts
My father's a gun aficionado so he'll laugh his
head off when he sees my lame cross-section
and explanation...but it's more detail than a comic
book artist usually needs :)

The handle should be wide and long enough to

accomodate the clip. Pulling back on the slide
pulls the first bullet out of the clip and into the
chamber. When the trigger is squeezed, the firing
pin (not shown) smacks the back of the bullet and
sends the lead part flying down the barrel..the
brass casing ejects out the top of the gun. The
force of the bullet leaving slams the slide back
and loads the next bullet into the chamber.
The esthetics

Now that we now the basic shap and what

components are needed to make a gun it's time
to pretty it up a little with some sleek lines. The
Grey area is the basic shape we already had..the
red sillouette is more or less the actual shape of a
Glock26. Only reference material will help you
here...after you get more comfortable with styles
of pistols you can start getting creative with the
lines...just look at Shirow's Seburo sidearms!
A little Detail

Notice I've added a bevel to the slide and put the

verticle grips on the rear of the slide. I've
contoured the grip and made the trigger well a bit
more comfortable. Again, reference material
helps a lot. Build up a scrapbook of guns to whip
out whenever your stuck.
