Artist: Dawn / July 27, 2009

Step 1.

Drawing a cartoon style hippie is going to be one of the easiest things you will ever draw. Start with a circle shape for the head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw the shoulder, arm, and leg guidelines to form a frame for your hippie.

Step 2.

Next start sketching out the face which includes the sunglasses, nose and bandanna. Draw a line for his mouth and then a thick dreadlock like curl.

Step 3.

Continue to draw out the hippie's curly hair which is a bog mess, and then sketch out and color in the eyebrows. Add some minor detailing to the side of his face and move to the next step.

Step 4.

Color in his shades and then draw a cigarette in his mouth. Next draw the rest of this hippie's wild hair and then start drawing out the shirt as you see here.

Step 5.

Finish the shirt and then draw some psychedelic prints on his cool looking shirt along with a peace sign. Begin the lining for his pants and then move to the next step.

Step 6.

Draw out the hippie's hands and then the arms. When that is done you will have to detail the hands by drawing finger nails on them.

Step 7.

For your last drawing step you will draw the rest of his pants and then sketch out his shoes. You can also go for a barefooted look if you like. Erase the guidelines and shapes and then move to the sketched out image.

Step 8.

Here is how your hippie should look when you are done with this tutorial on "how to draw a hippie step by step". Color him in and your done.

I wanted to do a drawing and or tutorial that conveyed peace, love and harmony. So what I am going to do is show you “how to draw a hippie step by step”. Hippies where the folks that loved peace not war and they where also the ones that helped free the minds of closed minded individuals. Lets take a good look into the lives a hippie for a minute shall we? First off, the hippie culture started during the sixties and they were a group of young adults that spread the good word of peace. The word hippie was actually from the word “hipster”. Hipster was a word that was used to describe or label folks that fell in the “beatniks” category. Hippies had and still have a cultural background that spreads like wildfire. So much so, that there was at one point strong hippie communities and everyone in the community loved listening to psychedelic music from bands like The Grateful Dead, Jimmy Hendrix, and even Pink Floyd. Hippies also were very much into the whole sex revolution and they used drugs that opened the mind in a trippy way. The drugs that they used were things like marijuana, LSD, acid, mescaline, and even magic mushrooms. I wasn’t born to hippie parents, but I had a friend who was and to me she was a little strange. Anyways I have so many tutorials to put up so keep a look out for the next lesson that will be shooting your way. In the mean time try this tutorial on for size which will teach you “how to draw a hippie” step by step. Peace out everyone and happy drawing!
