Hello, dear artists! Today we have prepared for you a new drawing lesson for those, who love good old fairy tails. In the old tales, we often met interesting and strange characters such as goblins, hobbits, orcs and gnolls.
At first draw an oval, to create main shapes of the head. Sketch out the lines of the face. Using lines draw the lines of the “skeleton”. Note, that the head is slightly bigger than usually.
Using ovals draw the eyes, draw the semi-closed eyelids and pupils. Using two short and thick lines draw the brows. Sketch out the ears and nightcap, as in our example.
At this step, we just need to outlines the contours of the robe. And don’t forget to draw the elongated shoes.
Using curved lines draw the nose and mouth. Sketch out the lines of the cheeks and add some wrinkles. Draw the lines of the robe and add some folds to the nightcap .
Erase the guidelines. Circle and darken the lines as in the example below. Add the details on the shoes.
Using hatching add shadows as in our example. Note, that the light comes from the front of the character, so we add shadows to the back side. And don’t forget to add the casting shadow.
If you want, you can add some colors, to make the drawing more interesting.
