STEP 1. Okay lets try and get this step down to point. What you see above is the outside frame work of the tower. What I want you to do is draw the same exact thing on your sketch pad using a good lead pencil. The best place to start would be the top because it has the shape of a top hat. So what you do is sketch out a square shape and keep going outward to form a cylinder shape. You should end up with six sections from top to bottom. After you get the outline down, sketch in the circles for the arched openings on the outside of the building.There is 11 on each level.   STEP 2. Here is where you can see what to work on next. The ares that are outlines in blue tells you what the next thing to do is. This is how I am able to guide you through the steps. What I want you to do is individually sketch all the vertical lines throughout the structure. After you do this move to the top and sketch in the openings where the bell tower sits. After you complete this time consuming step you can move onto step 3 and start the detailing process.   STEP 3. Here is where you will start detailing the tower of Pisa. Starting at the top sketch in all those little nooks and cranny's.Best thing to do is enlarge the image to see exactly what you need to do. After accomplishing that sketch in the definition on the tops of each arcade. Now when you get to the bottom sketch in the details that lay spread out along the base wall. After you do this you can move down to the next step.   STEP 4. This is a short step to instruct you to do. At the top, always start at the top, draw the bars that wrap around the whole cylinder at the top and the tier below. At the top there is a flag that needs to be sketched in. Define and detail the entire sculpture and sketch in the rest of the details at the base of the tower. After you accomplish this you can go ahead and erase all the sketch marks and guidelines made in step 1.   STEP 5. There you have it the leaning tower of Pisa. You did and awesome job and you really can't color it in. So if I where you I would just leave it as a sketch for the sketch book.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
