Merry Christmas, dear readers! Today we made for you a new drawing lesson. As you can see, we are going to show you how to draw Santa Claus.


Step 1

Let’s draw a stickman. As you can see, we have a short and fat figure. Chest width is almost equal to the width of the pelvis. Only females and chubby men have this figure type. By the way, do not forget that the first steps should be done with very light lines because in the next steps we will need to erase them.

Step 2

The previous step was very important. So, before you start this step, check the proportions of your stickman. First, draw two intersecting lines that will later help us draw the details of the face. And now with the help of circles and cylinders, we build a silhouette of our Santa Claus. Note that Santa should have a large enough belly and plump limbs.

Step 3

No Santa is complete without the beard and hat. So let’s draw the contours of the beard and hat. In the same step sketch the outline of our Santa’s costume. As you can see, the length of the beard is almost equal to the length of the head.

Step 4

Ok, we already have a very good result. Let’s continue to draw. In this step, we’ll draw the eyes, eyebrows, and nose of our Santa Claus. Eyes should be small enough. By the way, don’t forget to draw the bang which should be located above the eyes.

Step 5

So we continue with the drawing lesson in which we tell you about how to draw Santa Claus step by step. This step will be much easier than the previous one. We only need to draw the coat and the belt using dark and clear lines.

Step 6

Now let’s draw arms. Palms should be sufficiently small in comparison with sleeves. Don’t forget to draw folds on cloth and bag. By the way, do not forget to erase all unnecessary guidelines from the arms and the rest of the upper body.

Step 7

And it is practically the final of this drawing tutorial. In this step, we will detail pants and boots. With clear and dark lines let’s draw out the legs and remove the unnecessary lines. Also, you can see some of the details that you need to draw. These are the details:

  • The folds on the pants;
  • Buckles on shoes;
  • The soles.

Step 8

And the last thing we will do is overlay shadows. They should be located on the bag, sleeves, coat, pants, and quite a bit on the beard. Do not forget, to draw shadows we use classic hatching.
