How to Draw a Thief

Artist: Dawn / February 9, 2010

Step 1.

Drawing figures is all basically started the same way. For this thief, you will draw the shape of the head, jaw and then start sketching out torso and attach the limb lines for legs and arms.

Step 2.

Now you can start sketching out the chiseled look of the thief's face and then draw the bold circles around the eyes. The next thing that you will need to add is the knitted hat that these figures are captured of having.

Step 3.

Now that the facial structure is drawn out, you can now start sketching out the torso which includes the arms and or sleeves. Once you have sketched out the upper body you can add the horizontal lines for the stripes on the shirt.

Step 4.

Drawing a criminal is a lot easier then you think. Before you start drawing out his hands, you will need to draw the shape of his mouth, and add some detailing inside of the ear. Now you can draw the hands, rest of the shirt, and the beginning lining   

Step 5.

Finish drawing the legs and then draw the feet. Your crook or robber should be drawn in a pose that makes him look like he is walking away quietly with some hard core loot. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to prepare this   

Step 6.

Look at what you did, you actually drew an awesome depiction on a criminal. I hope you had fun drawing this unique looking thief. Color him in and you have finished an awesome drawing. Join me again guys!

Description: Criminal, robber, crook, and thief are words that mean the same thing. Why so many words for one meaning? Well like with other things, a person, place, or thing will always have more then one word that labels an individual . I am so excited about submitting this next tutorial because I love the way it came out. You are going to be taught “how to draw a thief” and believe me, you are going to get what you bargained for. When you think of a criminal or thief you normally get a mental image of a male figure dressed in black slacks, black shoes, a white top with black stripes, a white and black colored knit hat, and black markings around the eyes. As with the thief I drew, he is holding a bag of loot that he most likely got by robbing a bank, or breaking into a jewelery store. Some of us grew up playing cops and robbers with our relatives and friends, and then some of us played cowboys and Indians. What is a thief? A thief is a person, male or female, that makes a living by stealing off people, businesses, banks, and so forth. Nowadays, there has been a lot of break ins which is basically homes being invaded by criminals to steal what others have. They do this for money because they themselves have none, or they simply steal out of pure pleasure. Sadly, the more time goes by the more we will be hearing about thieves breaking onto homes, robbing banks, gas stations, and stores, and even stealing right in front of our faces on the street. There are some places in the world where thieving is all to familiar and has become somewhat of a natural thing to get used to. I for one have been ripped off before and when it happens to you, it definitely doesn't feel good. Hopefully, the thief needs what he has taken more then the victim. You'll have fun nonetheless with this tutorial that shows you in detail “how to draw a thief”. I will be back in a bit so try and keep your eyes peeled for more drawing fun. Peace out people, keep your spirits high, and be sure to join me again for another exciting tutorial!
