Step 1.

Draw the oblong circle for the head, then draw in the facial guidelines as well as the shoulder line.

Description: I have been meaning to get this Chinese public figure uploaded for two days now. It's going to be on "how to draw Mao Zedong", step by step. He is also known as Mao Tse-Tung, but that's besides the point. Mao was a Chinese communist who made China one of the most communist places in the world. From 1943 to 1945 Mao Zedong was part of the CPC which means Communist Party of China. He was born on December 26, 1893 and died on September 9, 1976. Zedong wasn't just China's leader, he was also a strong Marxist theorist, as well as a statesman and soldier. The lesson should be pretty simple but if you run into complications, just take a deep breath and start over in a more relaxed state of mind. Thanks for joining me with this lesson on drawing Mao Zedong. There is more to come so stay tuned in.
