Loki Drawing by color Pencil with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Pencil drawing tutorials 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
First, let’s start with the basic framework for our Loki body. However, you’ll want to try to draw these paths correctly, it’s not necessary. I like to start with principles that are VERY similar to these when I draw my rough drafts. The faint guide presents what outstanding guides will create (hands and staff). I would recommend drawing these tutorials FAST.
Starting with the initial formation of the face is ideal. You’ll want to shape his face first BEFORE adding the facials. By drawing the face first, you will confuse your proportions and lose the overspending to figure out how to place the face shape around the first drawn face. That’s why I always start to balance the face first.
Then continue with facials! I’m absolutely delighted with this, as Loki has the perfect face for a villain… a quiet-manipulative villain. His upper lip is not clear because Tom (actor) doesn’t have too much upper lip. The lower lip is evenly divided from top to bottom, creating an even effect. Now, this guy is KNOW for matte eyes and pretty feminine lashes. I gave him a subtly defined cheekbone to go with it.
Now we have to draw the entire head, which is NOT necessary from this point on. If you want, just skip this step. I just added this step just to avoid you not wanting to draw your helmet in. A lot of people love to draw Loki without his equipment to show that overly ‘precious’ face. Haha.
Then (if you drew in the previous step) we will draw the helmet. Again, if you skipped the previous step and went straight to this step, just draw what the red lines define.
Because I’ve simplified the original helmet design, we’ll add a few stripe definitions to the armor. Use thin lines for this part; because constantly using bold lines will only tire the drawing. You will create cryptic art using the same line weights throughout. Use thin lines for details and bold lines for outer shapes.
Working our way up slowly, we will outline the shoulders as well as the cape that covers the shoulders. This version of Loki does not retain the encapsulated armor as the original Marvel designs.
Take a deep breath and prepare to draw the arm that will hold the stick. Notice how the cape is stretched around his arms, showing him both raising his arms and conveying action in this unique pose. I want to work your way slowly and patiently for this part. When I first sketched this, I did the same, making sure the arms were anatomically aligned with the shoulders and neck.
First, outline the clenched thumb and palm BEFORE you draw the clenched fingers. I do this so it’s much easier to draw the rest of the fingers. Remember, the index finger will ALWAYS be raised higher than the rest of the clenched fingers.
Take your time, working with employees from top to bottom, or maybe mid-level. I decided to draw the staff from the top down. I find it easier this way.
Finally, take your time and use the thin line LIGHT for the details. Like I said before, it’s best to use light lines for the interior details to vary your line weight.
With continued work on your drawing, you should have something very similar to this one. I like to use a Micron ink pen or a black marker for similar line quality. If you don’t have these tools, just use a black marker or black pen that you can find. I hope you enjoyed this lesson, guys! I had fun drawing Tom Hiddleson; by the way is of English descent. At first I thought he was American but, no. You always know someone who is good at English when they have very thin lips 😉
This is the finished digital color drawing. Note that I didn’t finish the hand and staff shading. Interesting!
