How to Draw a Robot?3 min read

Today we will be drawing a robot. Excited? Right! Because robots are more of a machine with a brain! When we learn to draw the robot today we will be using geometric shapes. So get your Geometric scales ready.

Before we dive into the drawing let’s learn something about Robots

  • A robot is an artificial agent that works seamlessly with humans. It can perform various tasks, such as cleaning, without the need for humans.
  • They can be programmed to behave in a certain way, which could suggest intelligence or thought.
  • They can also be designed to look like humans.
  • In fictional works, robots often look like humans. They seem to have their own lives and bodies.

Fun facts about Robots

  • The first robots were created by mathematician Archytas in the early 5th century BC. Their goal was to study birds in flight!
  • The word robot came from a play by Czech writer Karel Capek in 1920.
  • Leonardo Da Vinci was able to create the first human-made robot in 1495, which was called the mechanical knight. He made the device with the help of an algorithm.
  • The first talking humanoid robot was built by Westinghouse in Ohio during the 1930s. It was able to speak and walk on its own.
  • George Devol invented the Unimate robot in the 1950s. It was initially used to lift die casting and weld it onto the bodies of vehicles.
  • Japan, which is the world’s top manufacturer of industrial robots, has the highest number of machines in operation globally.
  • The goal of the scientists who created the world’s smallest robot was to create an insect-like creature that can fly and take photos.
  • Neil, who was born in Australia, has an antenna fitted to his skull. It allows him to receive satellite signals and hear sounds and images from his brain.
  • The rovers Spirit and Opportunity have been studying the planet Mars for years. They have been able to collect valuable data.
  • Despite their dangerous nature, robots can still be useful tools for various applications. Some of these include space missions and underwater explorations.

Geometric Shapes in drawing

  • Inspired by geometry, geometric art is made using various geometric elements. It is mainly focused on the shapes of objects.
  • This discipline involves drawing geometric shapes to create patterns and designs. You can also work on 3D forms or simple 2D shapes.

While drawing a Robot

  • There are many ways to make a robot, and there are also plenty of books about them. If you’re not sure which one to pick, try looking for inspiration in the works.
  • Early elementary students tend to focus on geometric shapes. This makes them very useful for developing fine motor skills and keeping them busy.
  • These are great for a good start to a drawing. They are also easy to decorate.
  • For younger kids, drawing robots can be a lot more challenging. They can use their imaginations to create detailed drawings of the machines.

Materials needed to draw the Robot

  • Drawing paper
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Crayons
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Eraser

Steps to draw

  1. Let’s start with drawing the guidelines.
  2. Use the ruler and draw the guidelines on the drawing paper.
  3. Now start drawing the Robot with a pencil.
  4. Draw a rectangle body.
  5. Add a rectangle head and neckline.
  6. Draw two matching legs and feet.
  7. Draw two curved arms with hands.
  8. Add details to the head and neck.
  9. Add lines to the arms.
  10. Draw details on the body.
  11. Add lines to the legs.
  12. The robot is ready for an outline.
  13. So let’s give the outline with a black marker.
  14. Now we can color it.
  15. The robot can be colored in purple and pink.
  16. Then use Yellow color for the eyes, mouth, boxes and circle in the body.
  17. Now color the background in sky blue.


We had an exciting article with lots of information about robots and geometric shapes. And we made a Robot today. Keep drawing all. Encourage your children to draw. It helps them develop a lot.
