STEP 1. This first step is pretty simple. All you have to do is draw a long rectangular shape that kind of resembles a wooden windmill. Next draw one vertical line and one horizontal line inside of the shape. You will then end of this step by drawing yet another guideline for the sling or arm.   STEP 2. You will now start drawing out the arm in more shape and detail. After that is done draw a square box inside the unit and make sure it is drawn a little to the left. When drawing a catapult, the body and frame consists of straight lines because it is made from wood. Add more guidelines that will be the makeup of your catapult in later steps.   STEP 3. You will start connecting the lines together that you drew in previous steps to form the actual shape and design of the catapult. Start at the top and work your way down. You will detail the shapes that you draw with lines to make the pieces look like wood as you see it drawn out to you here. After you are done move to the next step.   STEP 4. This is step four and what you will be doing here is drawing the lower parts and design of the catapult. The shape and dimensions of the legs are to be drawn out so that your projectile weapon has stability and support. Once you are finished with this step you can precede onto the last drawing step.   STEP 5. For your last drawing step you will draw the sling for the catapult that is located at the top of the arm. Next draw four plates that are attached to the arm of the catapult as seen here. You will then draw the pulley that gives the weapon its tension so that it can be through with preciseness and speed. Finish drawing out the wooden base as shown here and detail the pieces with lines to show that this machine was made from wood. Erase the guidelines that you drew in step one to clean up the sketch out the catapult.   STEP 6. This is what your medieval weapon should look like when you are done. Just add some color and you have just learned how to draw a catapult step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
