How to Draw a Viking Head
- Draw baselines.
Determine the size of your drawing and mark the outline of the head. Draw the circle first, then add the bottom part.
- Add elements of the face.
Mark the position of the eyes in the form of two ovals. Add the nose and mouth. At this stage, use only thin lines.
- Make the oval of the face more clear.
Use the guidelines as a guide and give the face the desired shape. Highlight the cheekbones.
- Sketch out the eyes.
Give the eyes the desired shape. Draw the wide eyebrows and small creases on the lower eyelids. Keep symmetry in this step.
- Detail the nose.
Begin to give the nose the desired shape, focusing on the auxiliary lines. Draw the top and bottom of the nose and add the small skin folds.
- Depict the mustache.
With smooth lines, depict the long mustache, the ends of which are gathered in bunches. Try to be symmetrical.
- Draw the beard.
Draw the lower outline of the beard and use short strokes to draw the individual strands of the hair on the beard.
- Add the helmet.
This step will require you to be careful and accurate, because both sides of the helmet must be symmetrical. Draw the base, then add the horns on the sides and the rest of the elements.
- Sketch out the hair.
Draw the lush thick hair on the sides of the head. With the help of short curved lines depict the individual strands of the hair.
- Add details.
Using curved lines of different lengths, depict individual strands on the hair, on the mustache and on the eyebrows, thereby giving the drawing a more realistic look.
- Correct inaccuracies.
Now you can correct the mistakes and remove any extra lines on the drawing to prepare it for coloring.
- Color the drawing.
Color the skin and hair of the Viking with any natural shades. To paint the helmet, use different shades of gray.
