How to Draw A Man Playing Guitar Worksheet

This free printable worksheet will inspire the young artist and help him to gain confidence in drawing a human figure in a dramatic pose.  This worksheet can be used in home or a classroom; it can be given as a take-home project, a do on your own lesson or extra class time activity.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:
Do not give up if your drawings do not come out the way you thought they would.  No one is as hard on themselves as a person who truly has the gift of art. Learning to draw takes practice. Just say it was the first draft and try again. If you draw every day soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back and try some of my other projects.

PRINTABLE NOTES

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 seated with one foot forward toward you on a block and one leg sideways.  The head is low and the forward looking down.

DEVELOP FORM
Add the guitar and adjust the pose if needed. The guitar body is a little like a peanut.
After you have the basic pose worked out then go around the stick figure and draw the shapes of the arms, legs, and body.

CLOTHING
Draw the clothing around the form

FACE
Keep the face simple. Give him a short pointy beard. Draw a line under the lower lip for the shadow. Draw a thin line for the eyes.  The face is turned downward. Keep the hands simple, they are squarish The fingers are bent inward so they look shorter.

Use shading to give him roundness and depth.

Don't get too caught up with details like the strings.

The shoes are like long pointy triangles.
