How to Draw a Fireman, Firefighter

Artist: Dawn / April 22, 2009

Step 1.

Start by drawing out a circle shape for the head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw another circle for the torso of the firefighter as well. You will then draw out the limb lines as well as the guidelines for the axe.

Step 2.

Now that you have the guidelines and shapes drawn out you will start drawing out the front shape and lines on the smoke mask that this fireman is wearing. Once that is complete you will move to the next drawing step.

Step 3.

Now these steps are going to get a little more complex because you will start drawing out the detailing lines as well as the lining for the shape of his fire suit. But first draw out the shape of his fire helmet. Next draw the sides of the smoke mask   

Step 4.

Continue to sketch out more of his fire jacket and then the right hand that is gripping the fire axe with tight force. Next draw the top of the fire axe and make sure you draw out the back to be pointed.

Step 5.

Continue down the sketch to finish drawing out the shape, detail and definition of the fire jacket of the fireman. Make sure when you are sketching out the jacket you add the wrinkle, crease and fold lines to make the suit look realistic. Don't forge   

Step 6.

This is the step where you will finally finish off the jacket and again, make sure you add the detailing and definition lines. Start sketching out the pants or legs of the fireman or firefighter as you see here.

Step 7.

Sketch out the remaining of the firefighters legs and or pants. Sketch in the wrinkling as well as the creases. You are almost done with your drawing, you are doing great so move onto the next step.

Step 8.

This is your last drawing step and all you have to do is draw out the boots that are exposed and then the bottom of the pants of the fire suit. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up you sketch and move to the last    

Step 9.

This is what your official should look like when you are done. All you have to do is choose a shade and color him in. I hope you had fun learning how to draw a firefighter or fireman step by step.

Description: Here is a cool lesson on how to draw a fireman, firefighter step by step. I submitted a lesson a long while ago on how to draw a fire engine as well so I figured that I should add the guy that belongs to one of those life saving trucks. Anyway, we all know that firefighters are probably one of the most bravest and daring emergency workers that come to the aid to people that either have their houses, cars, or boats burning down. Or maybe they are stuck in a burning building and can't get out, or maybe firemen come to the aid of a kitten or a cat stuck up in a tree. Some of the most bravest men are firefighters and I think we all recognize them from the tragedy that hit the streets of New York on the day that will never be forgotten by anybody, September 11th. Now firefighters are trained professionals in search and rescue missions when it comes to blazing fires. They are also trained to put out hazardous fires on and above ground. They not only aid families, neighborhoods, business, and everything else in between, they also help put out brush fires, forest fires, and other potentially dangerous situations that put civilians in harms way. They are recognized by wearing their fire proof yellow fire suits, their extremely long and powerful axes, and their big red fire trucks that they pull up in. When you learn how to draw a firefighter or fireman, you can even draw yourself out a fire hydrant to go along with their image. I mean they can't put out fires unless a hydrant is close by right? I absolutely love the way this character came out. He looks like the real deal that can be found in your local fire station. I know you guys will have fun learning how to draw a firefighter, fireman step by step. When you are done you can color his fire suit yellow, red, or even black like I have it. I will be back later with two more lessons so try and stay tuned. See ya people.
