How to Draw a Skier

Artist: Dawn / February 9, 2014

Step 1.

You will make a head shape then draw the outlining for the torso, hips, and limbs. Add the facial guideline then move to step two.

Step 2.

Sketch out the shape for the skier's head and face shape like so. You will also need to add a small portion of the neck.

Step 3.

Next, you will draw the goggles, nose, mouth and chin dent. When that is done add the seam lines down the top of the mask.

Step 4.

You will now draw out the skier's shoulders, arms and hands. When you draw the hands be sure to make the fists appear to be grabbing the top's of the ski sticks.

Step 5.

The next thing you will do is sketch out the straps on the torso, then add some creases and folds on the inner forearms, wrists and then on the upper arms near the shoulders.

Step 6.

You can now sketch out the left side of the torso line, then sketch in the shape of the left hip, thigh and leg. Also draw in some of the ski boot as well.

Step 7.

You will tackle the task of drawing the right side of the body starting with the torso. Then move down to form the hip, thigh, leg and ski boot.

Step 8.

Now you can draw the skies, and if they look weird to you it's because they are being drawn on a front view angle making them seem smaller.

Step 9.

Add all of the detailing seam lines through the skier's suit like so, then detail the ski boots.

Step 10.

Lastly, draw the ski sticks, then add a little detailing to them, then erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 11.

Here is how your skier comes out once you are all done. Now you can go ahead and color in your work.

Description: Here is another lesson that is for celebration of the Olympic games. Here is a tutorial on "how to draw a skier", step by step. Olympic skiers have an incredible endurance and mental stability that gives them the drive to take that dive down various ski slopes and hills that can literally take an experienced skier's life. Anyways, this drawing isn't done on anyone particular it's just a basic sketch of a skier in action going down a slope. If you love skiing and have always wanted to draw a skier, here is your chance. I will be back later so be sure to come back around.
