Description: This will be my last tutorial for the day because I am wicked tired and it is time for me to relax. For my last tutorial I will be showing you how to draw a gingerbread man. Now the gingerbread man is a versatile character that can be used for Christmas, Halloween, and Easter. A popular fairytale is the one of two children called Hansel and Gretel. They were persuaded into going into an enormous gingerbread house that was built from cookies and every kind of candy imaginable. Another character that I absolutely adore is the gingerbread man from the movie Shrek. He is such a funny character, I never knew that a cookie could make me laugh and smile so much. A typical gingerbread man is made of what else, gingerbread. The dough is rolled out and a cookie cutter in the shape of a semi human is used to cut individual pieces out. After they are done from being baked in the oven, they are cooled and then decorated with white icing and a variety of candies such as; gum drops (which are usually used for the buttons), chocolate, m&ms, confetti candies, skittles, peppermints, candy corn and other sugary substance candy. The sweet thing about the gingerbread man is that he doesn’t only come in a stubby human form. Essentially any cookie that is made from gingerbread is called a gingerbread man. That is why they can be baked for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentine’s Day, and even Thanksgiving. With this tutorial you will learn how to draw a gingerbread man step by step. The instructions are easy to follow which is why you will have no problems learning how to draw this delicious seasonal delight. I will be back with more drawing tutorials tomorrow folks, but just because I’m leaving doesn’t mean you should too. Stick around and make DragoArt your second home. Peace out people.
