How to Draw a Monk

Artist: Dawn / August 11, 2020

Step 1.

Start off with a circle and then draw in the guidelines for the face and arms.

Step 2.

Okay, draw out the shape of the head.

Step 3.

Next, use the facial guides to draw out the brows/eyes, the wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes. You will also need to draw out the ears too.

Step 4.

Next, simply draw out the long mustache and the full beard.

Step 5.

Add a small dash for the mouth and draw out the arm/sleeve along with the hand in the meditative hand gesture.

Step 6.

Go ahead and draw out the other arm and hand. Notice the sleeve is loose and the hand is in a clutched pose because he will be holding a staff.

Step 7.

Lastly, draw the rest of the body which is a cloak and then draw the wooden staff and be sure to draw in the detailing to create the grain.

Step 8.

Once you have cleaned up the drawing the monk should come out looking like the one you see here.
