How to Draw A Gladiator Face and Helmet Worksheet.

Start with an oval for the basic head shape. Use two guidelines; one across the center, and one up and down the center to help keep things straight and even.

The helmet covers most of the face. There is a brim, it can be wide or narrow. It is pointed at the center, draw it as a line starting at the center of the forehead going down slightly and out past the ear then looping back behind the head. Repeat this on both sides. Add a second line next to it to give the impression of thick heaviness.

Draw the center crest as a double line going up and down the top of the helmet. It goes above the helmet and may have feathers on it.

The band of decorations across the front of the helmet has a roaring lion in the middle and laurel leaves on both sides. You can choose other ways of decorating like fight scenes, wild animals or mythical deities.

The face mask is a wide curving line starting at the top of one ear going down to the nose and back up to the top of the other ear. It has two eye holes, they can be bars, circles or slits for the eye holes.

The cheek guards are two rectangles on each side of the face, They can be flared in as a chin guard.

The face is only the eyes and lower parts of the face. Give the eyes a serious look by making the tops a straight line going across. There are wrinkles around the eyes.

The mouth is three lines. The first line is shaped like a stretched out letter, "M." Above that draw a rounded letter, "M;" the corners of the two touch. Below draw a rounded letter, "W;" the ends almost go to the edge of the letter "M" above.

Draw the wide jaw as straight lines.

Add armor, and a weapon.
