    Hi, Tom here and welcome to this week's
    Circle Line Art School video: How to Draw Hogwarts!
    last week I went to visit the Making of
    Harry Potter, the studio tour in London,
    there was so much to see, they had
    incredible stage sets and costumes and
    designs everywhere,
    there was an enormous model of Hogwarts
    and I decided to make a drawing of this model
    and to make the drawing I'm going to start
    with the basic shapes,
    the first step is to draw a box shape on the left, for the Great Hall...
    next we can draw the Great Staircase Tower,
    just draw a wide cylinder for now...
    now we can draw one side of the Quad,
    just a simple rectangle,
    we can make it into a cuboid of
    three-dimensional shape
    so that we can get a sense of it being a
    building in 3d, rather than a flat surface,
    we could also add a tower base on the right,
    further on the right we can draw the front of the Viaduct Entrance,
    a rectangle at an angle, seen from an angle, with a tower
    at each end, again the towers just need
    to be simple cylinders, circles, sort of
    squash circles at the top and bottom and
    vertical lines for each side of the tower,
    so a drawing which is clearly in
    two dimensions because it is on the surface of a piece of paper,
    we want to try and create a sense of depth, the missing dimension,
    next we can draw the side of the Long Gallery,
    going to the right, again we can add some lines to make it a 3d shape,
    so that we are drawing a series
    of cuboids and cylinders at this stage
    to get a sense of a three-dimensional
    building, a bit like when I saw the model
    and you can walk around the model in 3 dimensions,
    now we can draw two Bell Towers,
    just two solid looking cuboids,
    solid 3d shapes at the end of the Long Hall...
    we could add a pitched roof along the
    length of the Long Hall, too...
    and now we can add a sketch of a door
    for the front of the Viaduct Entrance
    and we could draw a door, an arch to doorway, to the Quad on the left too,
    next to the Great staircase Tower
    we can draw the Entrance Courtyard, which is in front of
    the Great Hall...
    we can now draw a short cylinder for the caretakers office which is next to the Great hall,
    and we can draw a tall pitched roof
    to go on top of the cuboid that we drew at the very beginning for the Great Hall,
    now we can add some vertical lines for
    the Viaduct in the front middle of this drawing,
    and draw some lines on the 3d shapes that we have already drawn,
    and these lines that we are adding can be guidelines for the windows and the
    details that we can add later,
    we can now draw a rock that the Hogwarts
    School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is built on,
    and the last few stages of this drawing
    will be to add all the towers and turrets onto the cylinders and
    cuboids that we have already drawn,
    we will also need to add small windows and these
    and these can just be small little shapes,
    and some shading, I think I will add some shading to this drawing too...
    throughout this drawing I'm going to use
    a 4b pencil, please visit to learn more...

    video, I hope you liked it and found it useful for your own drawing,
