How to draw Conan the Barbarian

The times of the barbarians are long gone, but they have left behind an indelible mark of legends and rumors. We could meet the image of the barbarians in a variety of books, movies and games. The most famous barbarian is of course Conan the Barbarian, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in a number of famous films. And today, in this drawing lesson about how to draw Conan the Barbarian, we will draw him in the image of Schwarzenegger.


Step 1

In popular culture, barbarians are portrayed as huge fearless warriors. It is this barbarian we will draw today. Start with the head, outlining it in the form of an oval. After that we will need to draw the line of the spine. On this straight line draw the outlines of the chest and pelvis. Arms and legs should also be drawn as the simplest lines.

In the last step we drew the skeleton of a barbarian, and in this step we will need to add some volume to it. Before that, let’s draw two lines on the head to help us draw the details of the face. Next, we draw the outlines of the wide torso, tapering in the waist. After that, we draw the outlines of the arms and legs, using very simple geometric shapes (such as circles and cylinders).

Next, we move a little lower and sketch out the sword, the bracers and the outlines of the shoes. By the way, we recall that in the first three steps of this lesson we used very light lines, but starting from the next step we will use dark lines.

The drawing of Conan the barbarian is almost complete, and we just have to make it more real by adding shadows to it.

You can add another layer of hatching to make the shadow darker.
