Drawing a Cowboy Step by Step

Step 1.

Begin with the guide for the head and then draw the shoulder guideline which is arched. Add the guideline for the rope as well.

Step 2.

Up next, draw in the angled, chiseled face structure for your cowboy. When that is done draw the ear and the definition to the cheek.

Step 3.

We will go ahead and draw in the mean expressive brows. You should color them in as well as draw out the shapes of the eyes. When that is finished you can draw the nose and mouth. Add the clef in the chin and frown lines on the sides of the mouth.

Step 4.

Okay guys, draw the cowboy hat and then draw the hair or bangs that fall on the forehead. You can also draw in the hair on the sides of the face.

Step 5.

Draw the skull star and then proceed to step six.

Step 6.

We will draw the cowboy's neck shape and this should be thick or strong looking. When that is done you can sketch out the scarf and more of the hair which is resting on the back of the neck.

Step 7.

You are almost done drawing your cowboy. All you have to do here is draw in the shoulders and some of the shirt detailing.

Step 8.

Okay, draw the whip or rope. This cowboy has an Indiana Jones type of style. I always liked the whip Indiana used so that is what I drew in here. You can draw a lasso if you want tho.

Step 9.

The only thing left to do is draw the sun setting in the background followed by some land or clouds. Add the cactus too. Erase the mistakes and all your guides.

Step 10.

Here is the line art for your cowboy. Now all you have to do is color him in.

Description: Well, here is something I have never drawn before. It's an idea that was totally random, but I'm glad I ended up making this lesson on how to draw a cowboy, step by step. As you can see this is not your typical cowboy. This guy is tough, hardcore, and full of attitude. Instead of a sheriff star on the hat, I drew a skull. This symbolizes his tough guy image and almost reminds me of a Clint Eastwood character from one of Clint Eastwood's cowboy movies. Anyways, have fun with drawing a cowboy and try not to go anywhere because there is a lot more tuts to come.
