Description: I know what many of you are thinking, the title of this tutorial is how to draw an Indian chief, and of course you would be expecting to see a male figure. I did want to do something different so I went ahead and made a lesson on drawing an Indian chief that is a female instead of a male. I got the idea to do a female because there is a woman who lives down the street that is an Indian Chief and she is female. She has been a chief for twenty years. Anyways, have fun and don't forget to let me know if you like this tut.
