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 have problems printing this see the how to print tab above for suggestions.

I have other projects like this one, search for them in the sidebar.


The face of Don Quixote is a long face. Start with an oval and use some guidelines. One guideline will go down the face a third of the way from the right edge; it is not center since we are drawing a face turned away at a three-quarter view. Draw a guideline across the face halfway down for the eyes. From the eyes go half way for the nose and below the nose draw another for the mouth.

The eyes are old and droopy. The upper eyelids inclines downward at the outside. Under the eyes are curved lines and bags. There are wrinkles at the outside of the eyes.
The nose is big and the end droops down.
The upper lip is covered by the long pointy mustache, use a lot of lines going down to draw it- don't just outline it. Same for the pointy beard on the chin.
The lower lip is two curved lines

Draw the helmet and armor last. The helmet is simple it is just some curved lines.
The chain mail is easy if you use some guidelines evenly spaced in rows, then fill in the rows with curved lines for the chain links.
The armor is only outlined in our example.

Use shading to make different parts stand out. Make the chain mail darker than the face, and make the areas around the beard darker so the beard looks brighter. Put shadow under the brim of the helmet. There is a shadow around the eyes, under the jaw, and under the nose.

Put some wrinkles across the forehead and between the eyes.
Draw a wrinkle or two from the side of the nose to the outside of the mouth.
Use shading technique to add flabbiness to the neck.
Smudge the armor with pencil or scribble little areas and add dots to show it is old and worn out.
