FIRST. A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out the way you had hoped do not give up- it is a good sign that you have the gift of art. No one is as hard on themselves as a person who really has the gift of art, your frustration just means you need to get your skill level up to the level of your talent. The way to do this is to draw everyday. Come back and try some of my other drawing projects and soon you will be making beautiful pictures.

Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.
Start by drawing an articulated stick figure, that is a stick figure that has the joints like wrist, elbows, knees.  Use a guideline so the foot and knee both touch the ground or else one will be higher than the other.
The head is an oval.

Take your time to make sure you get the pose right.

After the pose is made right go around the stick figure to fill out the body, use curved lines to show muscles.

The face is in profile start it as a curved line. Half way down make a guideline for the eyes, below that, make two more for the nose and mouth. Use straight lines to give the face a rugged look. The eye is tilted down and only a little part of the pupil shows under the upper eyelid to make him look like he is looking up.

The hand has the thumb on top and four fingers wrapped around the sword. The back of the hand is slightly curved, the fingers are not the same length. The fingertips are slightly square.

Draw the armor around the body.The elbows and knees are a series of triangles. The shield looks like an upside down teardrop. Use a ruler to keep the lines of the sword straight. Practice the dragon on a separate piece of paper and trace it onto the shield.

Finish the story. He could be pledging his sword to God, or king, or a beautiful maiden. Work out the story on another piece of paper and then trace in into the picture.
