How to Draw a Firefighter

Please see Firefighter drawing tutorial in the video below


A firefighter, firefighter or female firefighter is someone who does the job of fighting fires – putting out dangerous fires and preventing them from spreading. This may involve rescuing people from a burning building.

Firefighters use special tools and equipment. They wear helmets to protect their heads from falling debris and wear fire-resistant and heat-resistant clothing. Fire trucks can carry water or chemicals to put out fires, or firefighters can hook their hoses to a fire hydrant. Ladder carts provide access to tall buildings. Firefighters carry cocoon-like bags that they can hide in if trapped in a bushfire.

Firefighters are often depicted in cartoons. Examples include Billy Blazes from Rescue Heroes and Marshall from Paw Patrol. Firefighting live action movies include Backdraft and Fireproof.

Do you want to draw a cartoon fireman? This easy, step-by-step cartoon drawing tutorial is here to show you how. All you need is a pencil, an eraser and a piece of paper. You may also want to color your finished character.

Firefighter Drawing Step by Step

Step 1

Start by sketching the fireman’s face. Use a long, curved line to enclose the roughly rounded shape of the head. Note the slight indentation in the brow. Use a “C” shaped line to outline the ear.

Step 2

Draw the hat, erasing as needed. Use a “C” shaped curve to draw the brim of the hat and another curved line to enclose the opening. Then use a curved line to enclose the top of the hat. Tie the hat with a pair of curved lines.

Step 3

Detail of the fireman’s face. Use a series of curved lines to draw the hair above the ears. Draw two ovals to form the eyes. In each eye, draw the pupil with a curved line, a “C” shaped line and another curved line. Enclose egg-shaped eyebrows on each eye. Use curved lines to form the nose, mouth, and lines below the eyes.

Step 4

Use curved lines to enclose the collar of the jacket, arms, and torso. Notice that one arm uses a “T” shaped line to form the bend of the elbow.

Step 5

Use curved lines to form the legs. Below each, draw a “C” shaped line to enclose the top of the boot. Then, stretch two straight lines and connect them with a curved line to outline the boot.

Step 6

Draw a curved line down the center of the jacket and tie its bottom with a pair of curved lines.

Step 7

Draw by hand, erase as needed. Surround the fingers with a series of overlapping curves. Lace up jacket cuffs with a pair of curved lines.

Step 8

Draw a pair of “S” shaped lines going through the fireman’s hand to form the fire hydrant. Connect them at the ends using short, curved lines. Delete as needed.

Step 9

Draw a “C” shaped line around the top of the tube. Then, stretch a pair of straight lines. Connect them at the end using two “C” shaped lines. This forms the nozzle of the hose. Delete as needed. Then draw a series of connected “U” shaped lines of various sizes to enclose the water coming out of the faucet.

Step 10

Color your cartoon fireman. Their clothes are usually bright yellow or red. Then give him the tools he needs to do his job – a fire truck and a dog companion!
