Description: Well here is my last lesson for the day and it is something that I drew and colored while I was live the other day. It is a character that we all know and love. The character concept was inspired by one of my ultimate favorite games that I have been playing called WOW or World of Warcraft. There are characters in that game that are awesome and incredible. I am going to show you “how to draw a warlock”, step by step. A warlock is a being that is a part of historic religious traditions. They are known to be witches in male form. A female that practices the same type of magic that a male does is called a witch, and the male is called a warlock. The Scottish people use the term “warlock” to describe a wizard or a male witch. Although warlocks, witches, wizards, and sorcerers are all based on the same premise, they all have their own individual personalities and traits. For example, witches are known and described as being ugly old hags with green colored skin and big wart noses. A sorcerer is described as being a human that practices sorcery and dresses in a black cloak like the teacher characters you see in the movie Harry Potter and Willow. Wizards are beings that are wise and know all and they are described as being old with long white beards and they wear pointed hats and long heavy cloaks. A warlock on the other hand are usually described as being evil, dark, or full of hate. There is a movie that I love called “Warlock” and the way that they created the main character was awesome and believable. My depiction of a warlock comes from the movie and the game WOW. I hope you guys like my version of this historic figure, and I also hope you like the lesson on “how to draw a warlock", step by step”. I will be back tomorrow with some other cool lessons so remember to log in to see what’s new. Peace out guys and happy drawing!
