How to Draw a Male Draenei, World of Warcraft
Start out by picking your pencils. I used an F pencil for sketching and detailed lines, a 3H pencil for light shading/lines, and a 4B pencil for dark lines/shading.
Start out with a basic sketch, use the guidelines if you need them. Don't worry about copying this sketch exactly as it is. Just get a basic idea of the draenei down. Sketch lightly using an HB pencil.
Use a 4B pencil to lightly shade in the background then use a blending stump to smooth out your shading.
Start developing your shading at the head using an F pencil. Start light and progressively get darker. Use a 4B pencil for the darkest shading.
Continue developing the head. Don't forget the light symbol floating above the head. Use a blending stump to smooth out your shading and an eraser to pick out your highlights.
Finish up the head and the right shoulder of his armor. After that Start developing the left shoulder of his armor. Start by sketching with an F pencil and blending in with a blending stump. Use a 4B pencil for the darker shades. Use a 3H pencil for

Now shade in the book using mainly an F pencil. Use a 4B for the darkest shading and 3H for the lightest. After you are done with the book use 4B and F pencils to shade and define his cape on the right side.
Next shade in his thigh and cape. I started by roughly shading in with an F pencil and blending in with a blending stump. I then defined my shading using F and 4B pencils.
Start shading from top to bottom using mainly an F pencil. Use a 4B pencil for the darkest shading and a 3H pencil for the smallest details.
Keep making your way from top to bottom. Don't forget to draw in his flowing hair on the left side.
