An axe is an implement that has been used for millennia to shape, split and cut wood, harvest timber, as a weapon, and as a ceremonial or heraldic symbol. The axe has many forms and specialized uses but generally consists of an axe head with a handle or helve. It is mostly used to cut wood.

Steps To Draw An Axe
We try to make our tutorial simple and sweet. You can see the short demo in the image below. And you can follow the stepwise instructions in detail below. Follow the steps below to easily draw an axe step by step.
1Draw Rough Long Rectangle
We are starting by drawing rough sketches of an axe. Draw a long rectangle that has bulked edges roughly as shown in the image above. Use Pencil to draw because we will erase it in further steps.
2Draw Rough Part
Now draw the axe’s head roughly as in the image above. First, draw two symmetrical curvy lines close to each other from the long rectangle top as in the image above, and then join both ends by drawing another curve. Use Pencil to draw because we will erase it in further steps.
3Draw Axe Head
Now complete an axe head using reference lines that we drew earlier as in the image above. Here you can use a marker or a pen for drawing a fair part.
4Draw an Axe Handle
Similarly, complete drawing the handle of an axe using a reference line that we drew earlier as shown in the figure above. Here you can use a marker or a pen for drawing a fair part. After drawing erase all the rough parts.
As we are drawing an axe, let’s give it a realistic look by drawing a texture. Draw some small dark lines on the axe’s head and handle so that it looks so real.
Colouring an Axe
After the drawing of an axe is completed we move forward with coloring the axe. For coloring, we had chosen some basic colours. First, we coloured brown colour to the handle of an axe and then we coloured the grey colour to the axe head. And then we coloured axe tip to light grey colour. You can fill color according to your wish too.
- Light Grey
