How to draw a soldier easy with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Drawing jobs step by step for beginners and everyone.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
The lesson is quite complicated but we start drawing with a very simple stick – people made of sticks and circles. Before you start drawing stickman, remember the basic rules of human body proportions:
height is equal to the total length of about 7 heads;
3 of them fall on body (from neck to waist);
and 4 – on foot.
However, be extremely careful at this stage, because the soldier is not worth the full time (such as a doctor in one of our lessons), and occupy a position right before shoot.
Now we work a bit on the soldier’s head. At the top of the helmet’s helmet line, mark the rest of the lower part of the two vertical lines, which will show the symmetry on the face (note, it is slightly beveled to transmit the head tilt) and the horizontal line of the Eyes, he wears a gas mask. Also draw a part of the helmet and outline the silhouette of a soldier’s weapon in hand (stock should cover the lower part of the face). Sketch the rectangle guides for the hand, and move on to the third step.
We attach the volume to the arms and upper body. In fact, at this stage, we only circle the line expected earlier. Use shapes, similar to cylinders to outline the arm.
Now do the same thing on the lower part of the body. It’s much easier to do if you present your body parts in a simple shape – a belt and groin in the form of a triangle, a leg – in a cylindrical shape, a knee joint in a circular shape and an oval shape. Again, nothing fancy, because there is no anatomical rendering of muscles and tendons from us.
The volume bar of the Viking, that is, the silhouette of the soldier is ready, you can start adding more details. If in doubt about the accuracy of the soldier’s position or the proportions of his body, bring a sketch of the stage to the mirror and look at the reflection – where all the errors will be very appealing. and noteworthy.
And now, in fact, continue drawing lessons on how to draw a soldier of the red army. Remove additional instructions from the helmet and circle its outline, and draw the strap on the soldier’s cheekbone. Then draw the eyes – one of them must be narrowed.
Start drawing details from top to bottom, from head to toe. We work on clothes. Draw sleeves, outline the folds of the fabric and cuffs. Then indicate the strap going through all of the body diagonally, on the collar and touching which then becomes the large pocket located on the chest. Use short strokes, split fingers, as in the example.
Go below and draw the lower body soldier and the leg. First, draw the strap and side pockets, and then – one pocket and free lay on the bottom of the jacket First, draw the strap and side pockets, and then – one pocket and lay freely on the bottom of coat (note the smooth bend of the soldier’s jacket line closest to our feet, it must indicate his position). Next – foot. Remove additional instructions, circle the foot contours – make the edges slightly wavy and draw wrinkles on the fabric. Yes, such a feature – the right foot is bulky, again to emphasize the free cut pants.
Yes, it’s very close to what we need. Please add details for the soldier. At this stage, we thoroughly describe the warrior’s right arm and the edge of the rifle. Look closely at our template and try to repeat our actions in your drawings – always drawing seemingly insecure details such as elbow patches, hem collars, buttons and pleats. Draw the knuckles on the outside of the hand.
Now repeat the same operation, but on the other arm. Only here, in contrast to the previous stage, we can see the fingernails on the fingers and we will need to specify them. Also, mark the phalangs, but otherwise all look the same – cuffs, buttons, patches on the elbows and folds.
Drawing Mosin rifles. Do not forget that most parts of the gun barrel are made of wood, to visually convey the material, draw some lines along the trunk in the front. In addition, draw short horizontal lines that run across the barrel of the gun – first of them near the front and final vision – in the area of the left hand. Draw sight, trigger and a belt (note the waist buckle and reverse position).
Body details. Draw stripes on the collar, horizontal lines of screws and pockets. Note the frame, located at the edge of the bag and the pleats run from the belt. Do not forget to take out your pocket and belt buckle. Next, draw the strap (the one placed in a soldier’s belt) and the belt buckle bag. Add short and smooth creases to the bottom of the jacket, as in our example.
Draw the legs, starting with the right one. Circle it, keep the wavy contour according to the previous schedule, draw the line of his pants, mark a rectangle in the knee area and draw shoes on a pair of thick, rough soled shoes. Add some folds on the boot.
Now we detail the other leg. Circle it, mark the folds, draw a strip of fabric in the area of the lower leg. Draw a thick sole of the shoe, draw the outline and a pair of lines on the material of the shoe, which will be indicated by folds.
Not bad, right? Now let’s try to add shadows. First, apply a shadow on our soldier’s helmet. Before you begin, don’t forget to look at stage 6 of the lesson on how to draw grapes – first, describe the structure of the actual shadow, and secondly, a shadow on a bunch of grapes is very similar to the shadow on a helmet. The perils of a soldier from this lesson.
Before applying the shadow, determine the location of the light source – the light falls on the soldier’s front, the source is at its growth height and comes from our right side.
Add shadows using light and smooth blooming. Don’t forget to specify a light reflector strip, located on the edge of the helmet.
Apply shadow to the right hand. Note that almost every fold creates an easy shade, but in the area of the deltoid muscle balls and trapezoid are particularly thick.
The use of cross hatch light indicates shadows on the body, increasing the number of layers in the densest shaded areas.
Actually, it remains to apply the shadow to the legs and our drawings are ready. Add shadows, as in the previous steps – use the hatch and lightness of the different layers. Finally, color the soldier.
