How to Draw Lief

Artist: Dawn / April 19, 2010

Step 1.

You may not know of this character now, but you will in the near future. Start by drawing a head shape, and then add the facial guidelines. Once that is done, you can then draw the lining to form a stick figure frame for your character.

Step 2.

You will now sketch out his face shape, and then begin sketching in his long bangs for his hairstyle. This is the typical style that was worn by men in the times when dragons coexisted with men.

Step 3.

Now, you can finish sketching out his hair, and then draw his eyes, eyeballs, nose, and mouth. He should have a serious expression on his face. Next and finally, you can sketch out the shoulder, shirt material, and then the cape.

Step 4.

Draw more of the cloaks cape as you see here and add some detailing fabric lines to make the cloak appear to be waving in the breeze. When that is done you can then draw out some of the waist, and the strap that is going across his torso.

Step 5.

Okay, finish drawing the material and straps that is criss crossed Lief's body. Once that mess is drawn in, you can begin sketching out the left arm, glove, and sword. On the right you will draw the sword's holster like you see here.

Step 6.

For your last step, all you need to do is draw in the legs, and then his boots. Erase the lining and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 7.

When you are done, Lief comes out looking awesome. Color him in and you're all set. I hope you liked drawing Lief from Deltora Quest, step by step. Don't forget to comment and rate guys.
