How To Draw Elise From League of Legends

Artist: MichaelY / April 13, 2013

Step 1.

To draw Elise, from League of Legends, we should first sketch in some basic guide line. Using a 2H or harder pencil, lightly sketch in a stick figure shape such as this one. These lines do not have to be perfect, since they will be erased later on.

Step 2.

Next, we should sketch in the basic human form. Doing this will ensure that the figure is proportionate when we go to apply the outfit later on. You do not need to include details such as facial feature or fingers. These lines are just guides as well   

Step 3.

We can now begin working on details. Let's start with her face. She should have angry eyes that do not have pupils or iris's (her eyes are solid red). Her eyebrows should be thin and high on her face. She has a pouty, yet tiny mouth. Draw the contour   

Step 4.

Her head gear is very pointy. There are three spike-like shapes on either side of her head that point back. There is a large vertical spike shape on either side of her face that is connected to the head gear by a curved piece of armor. Her hair is sl   

Step 5.

Elise has a rather long neck that is protected by thin sections of V-shaped armor. There is a large, curved piece of armor that rests on her shoulders and surrounds her neck. Attached to this armor is three large claws (spider legs) that point upward   

Step 6.

Her breasts and stomach are protected by thin pieces of armor that allow for easy mobility. The strips of armor should mold to the contours of her shape. There are small spikes at the top of the armor at the sides of the breasts. Observe the long poi   

Step 7.

Add more detail to the torso by drawing a piece of cloth across the top of the chest that adorns a small diamond-shaped jewel in the center. Beneath the side of the stomach armor, draw half circles. These will become the tops of the hip armor. The ha   

Step 8.

Draw her arms hanging down the sides of her body, but don't worry about the hands just yet. She wears long gloves that end at her shoulders. The inside of her elbows have web-like shapes in them.

Step 9.

The hands should not just be hands. They should be terrifying claws. Draw very long, curved claws at the ends of each finger.

Step 10.

Draw her right leg, but do not worry about the foot yet. She should be taking a step towards us. Notice the patterns on the side of her thigh and calve. The pattern on the calve should connect to a triangular shaped, armored knee pad.

Step 11.

Elise has very unique "shoes" in that they hold her feet as if she is wearing high heels, but there is no heel on the back of the shoe. Instead, it is one large spike protruding from beneath her toes.

Step 12.

Draw the left leg and foot, but it should be behind the right leg. The patterns on her left leg should not be visible at this angle.

Step 13.

Go back to the hip area and draw more detail. There should be a web-like pattern near the crotch and large pieces of armor on either side of the hips.

Step 14.

Elise has six more large spider legs attached to her backside. To draw the legs, let's first draw some guide lines for them like we did in step 1. There should be two pairs of legs protruding from behind her upper body, and one pair of legs dangling    

Step 15.

Draw the upper legs as you would see them on a black widow spider. They are in three sections and have sharp points on the ends.

Step 16.

The lower pair of legs should be thicker and dangle behind her legs. They have a pattern running down them similar to that of her thighs.

Step 17.

Now that we are done penciling the image, we can ink it using a Micron marker or a brush and India ink. Carefully go over each line with patience and be sure not to accidentally ink any unneeded guide lines. When the ink is dry, erase your pencil mar   

Step 18.

You can add more depth to the image by giving it shadow and blacking out the black parts of her outfit. Establish your light source and use black ink or a fat tipped black marker to shade in the areas seen here. The black armor has a shine to it, and   

Step 19.

If you need to make any corrections, use white ink or opaque white paint. You can also use it to add highlights if needed. In this case, I added extra shine to areas of the black armor, and helped separate pieces of armor by drawing thin white lines.
