How to Draw a Cool Troll

Artist: Dawn / August 1, 2009

Step 1.

Start with a circle for his head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the outlined shape for his hair and then draw the guidelines for the arms, torso, and legs. Draw the foot and then the circle shape for the shield.

Step 2.

Draw out the long pointed shapes of his ears and then draw the hair line in the front. Sketch out the eyebrow lines and then start sketching out the nose.

Step 3.

You will sketch out the razor sharp pointed hair strands and then sketch in all the facial detailing as well as the shape of the trolls face. Draw the straight line for the sword and then move to the next step.

Step 4.

Finish sketching out the left ear and then start sketching out the top part of the trolls body. Begin to thicken the sword a bit and sketch in the mouth, teeth and nose.

Step 5.

Sketch out the left arm and then the bracelet. Draw the butt of the sword and then move to the next step.

Step 6.

Finish sketching out the arm and then the armor bracelet. Sketch out the sword some more and then thicken the shape of the circle. Sketch out the torso and then detail the stomach and chest.

Step 7.

Sketch out the hand and then sketch out the outer lines of his legs and or pants. Begin to sketch out the feet and detail the middle of his shield which looks like a sun or a star.

Step 8.

Sketch out the rest of the trolls legs and then finish drawing out the feet. When that is done you can add some definition to the ankles and pants.

Step 9.

Sketch out the cloth that is in the middle of his legs and then detail the cloth by adding wrinkles to his clothes. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 10.

When you are done your troll should come out looking like the one you see here. All you need to do now is color him in. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on "how to draw a cool troll" step by step.
