How To Draw Robing Hood Aiming An Arrow Worksheet.

This worksheet for how to draw Robin Hood will give the young artist confidence in drawing a difficult pose with an arm in foreshortened position and one foot crossed behind the other.  It is a dramatic pose, and when color is added the young artist will be proud of his work.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Do not give up if the first try does not come out the way you wanted. Try a few rough sketches first and then after you have become familiar with the project try to do a production piece. (I had to draw this 8 times before I was happy with it). Learning to draw takes practice, so keep on drawing; come back and try some of my other projects and soon you will be making beautiful pictures.

To print the free worksheet above just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later.  If you are having problems printing see the how to print tab above for tips.  

BEGINNING
Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.

Draw an articulated stick figure to give him the right pose. The stick figure should have joints at the knees and elbows. The figure is sideways with one foot forward toward you and one arm out toward you , it will look short but that is perspective. The other arm back out of view.  The head is low and the chin almost touching the shoulder.

DEVELOP FORM
After you have the basic pose worked out then go around the stick figure and draw the shapes of the arms, legs and body. Keep drawing lightly or be ready to trace onto fresh paper.

CLOTHING
The leggings are tight on his skin. The boots go almost to the knees and have a flap folding over the top. The shirt doesn't show except for the collar and the sleeve on the arm facing forward. The leather jerkin over the shirt has rectangle fringes on the waist and the shoulder. A belt goes around the waist, another belt goes over the shoulder to the sword.

FACE
Keep the face simple. Give him a short pointy beard. Draw a line under the lower lip for the shadow. Use a dash for the eyebrows. Draw a thin line for the eyes, with a dot at the outside near tip so it looks like he is looking at you.  The face is turned slightly away so the nose is to one side and the far eye is partly hidden.

Hand the hand starts out boxy. The thumb points up, draw three short lines inside the boxy shape from outer edge to half way across, it will look like fingers

DETAILS
The far hand is almost hidden from view just draw a curving line for the top shape and a line for the fingers.

Take your time with the weapons. Draw the curve of the bow all the way, after you have the length and curve right go back and draw the tapering shape of the bow. The sword is almost at the back. Take your time with it. Don't try to draw every arrow in the quiver just give the basic shape and the impression of a lot of arrows.

Use a lot of color, mostly brown and greens with black for accents. Use shading technique to give it roundness.
