In this instruction, the team of Easydrawingart.com will show you how to draw a cowboy. It will be quite simple and even the most inexperienced artist will be able to draw a cowboy.
In this instruction, we applied a slightly different principle of depicting a person than in the instructions about a football player or basketball player. Anyway, let’s get down to the article and learn how to draw a cowboy.
Firstly, create a cowboy’s skeleton, starting with the head, torso, and pelvis, and create them in the shape ovals. Next, depict the spine and limbs as simple lines. The lines of the first stages should be very light.
Depict lines on the head that will help us portray the face. Next, create a neck in the form of a cylinder. After that, connect the chest to the pelvis, creating a cowboy torso.
Using simple cylinders, depict arms and legs, and using balls, depict the shoulder, elbow, and knee joints. In the same stage, depict the hands and feet with loose lines.
So, using the lines of the second stage, depict the face of the cowboy. At the same stage, outline the jaw and depict the ears. You can depict his eyes like Clint Eastwood’s to make the cowboy really cool.
One of the most distinctive features of a cowboy is his hat. So, first, depict the wide brim of the hat and then the upper cylindrical part.
Using several lines, depict a poncho lying on the shoulders. Of course, you can repeat the cowboy clothes from the example drawn by the artists of Easydrawingart.com, or come up with another outfit for him.
Now depict the collar, vest, and gun in the hand. You can draw a cowboy with a revolver or put a Victorian era rifle in his hands.
Now, with a few simple lines, depict the fingers. Repeat everything as the artists of Easydrawingart.com did. Remember to create shirt cuffs.
Now, using a few simple lines, depict a belt with holsters hanging on it. Next, create the upper edges of the boots with a pair of lines.
So, now let’s put the pencil aside and take an eraser to begin to clear our cowboy drawing from unnecessary guidelines. Let’s start with the head, cleaning the guidelines from it and tracing it with a darker pencil or ink.
Now let’s do the same, but with the torso and arms. Using the eraser, clear the cowboy’s drawing of unnecessary lines and trace the necessary ones with darker pencil or ink.
In this stage, we will actually finish drawing a cowboy. Using the same eraser, clear the cowboy drawing of any remaining guidelines. Darken the legs with a dark pencil or ink.
Let’s paint the cowboy now. You can use colored pencils, felt-tip pens or paints for this. Just choose what you like best. You can repeat the color palette as in a picture from the artists of Easydrawingart.com or use your own color palette.
