Artist: Dawn / May 21, 2020

Step 1.

You will take your time and draw out the shapes and guidelines to create the framework for both characters in the lesson.

Step 2.

Let's tackle the girl first. Draw out the shape and structure of her face like so as well as the eyebrows and ear.

Step 3.

Go ahead and draw out her face. This is the eyes, mouth and detailing inside the ears.

Step 4.

Next, draw out the long hair which is also in movement. You want to make sure that you add detailing and definition to her hair.

Step 5.

We will now draw the arms and hands then some more of her hair that wraps around the arms.

Step 6.

Since she is swinging, you will need to draw the rest of her body in a swing. Draw the legs and feet and then add definition throughout the body.

Step 7.

Add the handles for the swing.

Step 8.

Now let's tackle the beastly puppeteer. This figure has a skeletal shaped head with the nasal cavity and eye socket holes. Draw the teeth and mouth and add skeletal definition.

Step 9.

Go ahead and give this beast some horns.

Step 10.

Now you can draw in the ears and the fur or mane that fills the area making the beast look massive.

Step 11.

Draw out the very muscular torso as well as the arms, hands and long nails. You will need to sketch in the muscle definition on the chest and arms as well as some fur texture.

Step 12.

Now just draw in the cloud like mass that surrounds the girl being swung by the puppeteer. Erase the mistakes to clean up the drawing.

Step 13.

That's it, you are all done. Now you can have fun coloring in this drawing.
