Artist: Dawn / November 22, 2011

Step 1.

You are drawing two figures, which means double the work. Begin with two head shapes like so, and then add a facial guide for Santa.

Step 2.

All you have to do here is draw in Santa's famous hat and you can actually do this using any style you want. Make the ears and move along.

Step 3.

Next, use the single face guide to draw out Santa's eyes and nose like so, and then draw in the wide triangular shaped curly beard which should start under the nose.

Step 4.

Next, draw the ornament shaped body for Santa, and then draw in his belt which is stretched around his waist.

Step 5.

You will be finishing Santa off with this step which means the next one is gonna be all about Rudolph. Simply draw in two arms and two feet like so, and make the marking line for his mittens.

Step 6.

Okay guys, you will be drawing a lot more than just some basic lines in this first step to drawing Rudolph. Make the shape of the head and then continue with the same lining to form the first leg. Draw and color in the eye, as well as draw the nose a   

Step 7.

Almost done guys, all you have to do is draw the rest of Rudolph's body which includes the other front leg, as well as the hind leg. Make the lines for the hooves.

Step 8.

You will finish off this lesson by drawing the string of lights that Santa has wrapped around Rudolph's neck. Make the little light bulbs and clean up the drawing to complete the tutorial.

Step 9.

Here is the finished line art when all is said and done. Now you can color in the drawing and be on your Merry way.

Description: You can’t start decorating your house for the holidays without adding a drawing of old Saint Nick and his trusted red nosed reindeer. Today, I am going to do something really cute and teach you guys "how to draw Santa and Rudolph", step by step. These two figures have been a part of my life since I can remember and I know the tradition still remains for millions of boys and girls around the world. Anyone that believes in Santa knows to put out a plate of milk and cookies so Santa has a snack to restart his journey as he delivers toys around the world. Rudolph is his main wing man because he is the one with the red nose to light the way. I really wanted to make sure that artists of all levels will be able to tackle the task of drawing Santa and Rudolph and that is why I drew them in chibi form. I think you will have fun because I had a blast making these two characters out. I will be back in a bit so stick around for round three of tutorial fun. Peace people!
