We really like drawing people, and most often we draw warriors from different times and from different cultures. In previous lessons, we showed you how to draw a Soviet soldier and a Greek warrior. And today we want to continue this series, and show you how to draw a Celtic warrior.
The figure of a human should start with his skeleton, which must be drawn with very light lines. First, we sketch out the head in the form of an oval, then the spine with the help of a long and light line. On the line of the spine, we sketch out the chest and pelvis. With the help of simple lines sketch the arms and legs. By the way, in order to learn about the proportions, visit our lesson on how to draw a man.
Now we need to add some volume to the skeleton of the character. But first, we will sketch out the lines of facial symmetry intersecting in the center of the head. Next, outline the neck, which goes into the torso. Using simple geometric figures, such as balls and cylinders, we sketch out the arms and legs. In the same step draw an ax in one hand and a shield in the other.
In this step we will outline the most basic details, continuing to use very light, almost transparent lines. First sketch out the outline of the face, hair and beard, using the intersecting lines from the previous step. Further we move below and sketch out wide pants and a sword hanging on a belt.
Let’s begin to work with the final details now. First of all we need to draw out the head of Celtic warrior. Orienting by the lines from the previous steps, carefully draw out the details of the face and beard. To draw hair, use short lines. Add a few wrinkles and remove all unnecessary guidelines from the head.
Now we are moving a little lower and draw out the torso. With the help of clear and smooth lines, carefully draw out the outlines of the neck, which smoothly passes into the torso. Next, we need to draw out the shape of the torso, pectoral muscles and a slightly noticeable abdomen. Erase all unnecessary guidelines from the torso and move to the step number six.
Now it’s time to proceed to the arms of our Celtic warrior. Let’s start with the shoulders, draw them with clear and smooth lines. Next, we need to draw the outlines of the hands of our warrior, as shown in our drawing. By the way, to learn how to draw hands, visit this drawing lesson. In the hands draw out an ax and a shield, and move to the next step.
In this step we will finish drawing the body of the Celtic warrior. As you can see, here we will be drawing the pants. With the help of clear and smooth lines draw out the outlines of wide pants. Here we draw the shoes, and the belt with the sword. Add some folds and delete all unnecessary lines from the drawing.
The Celtic warrior drawing is almost complete, and in order for it to look more voluminous, we need to add a few shadows. We will do this (by tradition) with the help of usual hatching. As has been said many times, we need to first determine the light source and then add shadows to the least-lit areas. At the same step we draw pattern on the pants.
It was quite a difficult drawing lesson, in which we showed how to draw a Celtic warrior. As you can see, this drawing was quite realistic, and if you want to see new drawing lessons on similar subjects, write to us about this either in the comments to this article or in our social networks.
