How to Draw Mandrake, Mandrake From Epic, Leafmen

Artist: Dawn / December 21, 2012

Step 1.

Make a simple circle for the head, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Draw out the chiseled shape of Mandrake's face like so, then draw the lid of the animal skin hood he is always wearing. The cheek bones should be prominent, and the chin should be flat to form a square jaw.

Step 3.

Begin drawing the teeth that line the lid of the animal skin hood. Once that is done draw the lip line above the tooth line like so, then sketch out the shape of the animal's nose which is the diamond you in the center. Sketch out the sides of the sk   

Step 4.

Draw in Mandrake's eyes, then draw the diamond shaped nose. You will then need to draw his great big smile or grin like so, then proceed to step five.

Step 5.

Here is where you will add the facial detailing like the frown lines on the sides of the mouth, then the detailing to form the nostrils. When that is done you can draw in the small cone shaped teeth, definition on his chin, as well as under his eyes.   

Step 6.

Here is where things get a little tricky. You will need to draw the fur for the coat of the animal skin that he has. Take your time as you sketch out layers of bushy hair that is flowing in all directions.

Step 7.

For the last step all you need to do is sketch out the detailing on Mandrake's neck, then draw the texture to the animal's face along the sides of the nose. Color in the nostrils and add some last minute detailing and defining. Erase all your mistake   

Step 8.

Here is what Mandrake looks like when complete. Color in this face, then wait for the movie to come out in 2013. Great job folks.

Description: Doesn't every movie have to have a villain? Well in Epic's case the bad guy is this blue faced fella you see before you now. Up next, we will learn "how to draw Mandrake", step by step. Now, Mandrake is one cool looking dude. I love his face, his hunched over body style, and the fact that he is blue makes everything that much better. I really love the way that Mandrake came out, and if you are still not familiar with what Epic is, you have to watch the trailer. Epic is going to be a film that will make everyone think twice about whats living in our own backyards. Drawing Mandrake is going to be cool, and the lesson will also be a learning challenge. I have to bounce out of here because there is still more to upload. Be back soon folks, enjoy.
