How to Draw a Left 4 Dead Charger, The Charger

Artist: Dawn / July 13, 2011

Step 1.

Begin by making some bold or big shapes to create a mannequin for your zombie character. First draw a small circle for the head, followed by a large egg shape. Next, make a cylinder shape for the lower section of the body and then add the guidelines    

Step 2.

You will now simply sketch out the shape of the head which has the structure of a skull. Draw in the eyes, and then add some detailing or definition lines around the right eye, and left cheek.

Step 3.

You will now work on making the face look horrid by coloring in the eyes solid leaving only white dots. Color in a skeletal nose and then draw in the open frowned mouth then fill it with teeth. The teeth should be misshapen, as well as uneven. Once t   

Step 4.

His upper body is fairly easy to draw. Start at the top of the head and draw in the shoulders and part of the left arm. Once that is done draw the extremely wide shape of the right arm and make sure to close off the end of the arm which should look l   

Step 5.

The left arm is very skinny and limp and Charger doesn't have much use for it. Draw out a deformed looking left arm and hand like you see here and make sure to start off thick at the top, but then the arm should shrivel into nothing at the end. As fo   

Step 6.

There is one more step after this one guys which means you are almost done. All you have to do here is sketch out the lower body starting with the hips, thighs, and legs. The left foot looks like it belongs to the Hulk, but then the right foot is lik   

Step 7.

For the last step you will first need to clean up the guides and shapes that you drew in step one. Once that is done you can begin sketching in all the detailing to the body and clothes. Start with the large arm and begin drawing in a bubbling skin s   

Step 8.

Here is the finished drawing when you are all done with the sketch. The only thing that's left to do is color him in to look gross and scary. Thanks guys and I hope you had fun drawing Charger from Left 4 Dead.

Description: I’m not too fond of this zombie character that I’m about to submit, but someone asked if I could make a tutorial on "how to draw a Left 4 Dead Charger", step by step. The Charger is probably one of the less interesting monsters in the game, and I think it’s because he looks like a huge rock with legs, and a skull for a head. It too is a special infected and Charger’s main objective is to knock down Survivors that are in a close knit cluster. Once this zombie monster pounds on you, get ready to go for a ride because your character will literally go flying through the air. As far as how big is this thing is, well if you compare it to the Tank their about the same height. It’s skin color is like a pale-ish green and he wears jeans that are stained with blood. The left side of the Charger’s body is overgrown with muscle and it’s sort of twisted so that he is able to slam into you like a bulldozer. There is no hair on his head, and the face is very skeletal in appearance. If I had to choose what character is easier to take down and avoid I would have to say Charger. Even though he is massive in size, he can still be killed with a couple of good shots. Drawing a Charger from Left 4 Dead is going to be easy, but there is also going to be some complexity there as well. The best thing you can do when attempting this tutorial, is to follow the steps and take your time. Drawing zombie monsters like this can also be time consuming so make sure you are not going to be busy for about thirty minutes to finish your lesson, and then color it in. I guess that’s about it, you probably won’t be seeing any more Left 4 Dead monsters submitted by me anytime soon so enjoy this one, and when you’re done let me know what you thought of it. Until next time folks, have a happy drawing day!
