Today going to paint warriors of Ancient Rome. This is a Roman legionary. As you can see, this sketch looks good. I painted it a few days ago. But today we are going to draw a Roman Gladiator.
It’s a reference. Begin by drawing a vertical line and divide it into 8 parts. In the first part, draw an oval – this is the head. Divide the head axis line in half. Just below the head, draw a cylinder – this will be the neck. Extends from the neck trapezius muscle. Then draw a centerline on the chest. At the level of the 3 line is the navel. At the level of the 2 line will breast nipples. Sketch the body in the form of a rectangle. Here will be the line of the clavicle. It is at an angle. The line of the nipples is also at an angle. Both lines go in the future. This place will be shoulder joints. Collarbone go to them. Continue the line of the body. If something did not work erase it with an eraser Draw the axial line of the arm. The elbow is at the level of the navel. Note his circle. Continue the centerline. It will end in the lower part of the pelvis. Here is lonna fusion and the legs begin. Usually this place is mid-torso height. Around this place is the basin. Will draft it in the form of an oval. Off the shoulder will continue the centerline of the second hand. Draw a circle. There will be a second elbow. Mark the position of the hand. Continue it from elbow to wrist. Draw the second hand. Continue to line 4. Here will begin wrist and here we draw a fist. Sketch its straight lines in a triangle. In this place are the femoral heads. Mark the line of the hips. Continue the leg line. Now we draw the thigh and bring the leg line to the knee-cap. This place will be the lower part of the patella and the beginning of 2 leg bones. Draw the lower leg and the foot. Make the other leg the same. Show the direction of the feet. Here the foot is rotated in the other direction and is directed away from the Gladiator angle. Now we are going to build muscle. Erase our preliminary sketch, but all the line remained visible. We begin to Refine our drawing.
Draw the side of the head and temple Making the contour of the hair, eyebrows, nose, mouth. The side of the face is in shadow. Separate this place. Refine the neck in the form of a cylinder. Around our sketch we begin to build muscle.
Do the shoulders in the form of ovals. The muscles in the form of straight lines. Refine the shape of the body. Show the slope, Draw the shape of the forearms. Making the wrist draw the thigh Look at the position of the patellas. How one is higher than the other. Look at the reference and Refine body shape. We continue to draw the shape of the legs. We try to draw in straight lines. We draw a foot. Now take the eraser and erase our sketch But so that you see the drawn lines. Start the stroke again, but more accurately. Divide the face with three horizontal lines The upper part – there will be a distance from hair growth to eyebrows The second part from the eyebrows to the lower part of the nose The third part is from the base of the nose to the chin. We refine the shape of the body and immediately sketch the details of the gladiator’s clothes. Clarify the position of the clavicle, draw a shoulder, position nipples, shoulder muscles, biceps, triceps. And immediately draw the details clothes. We refine the contour of the forearm begin to draw armor gladiator. Now there is a refinement of the contour. Here I throw the abdominal muscles. Again I began to draw the gladiator’s outfit I sketch the folds on his skirt. I refine the details of the face with a thinner pencil.
Now I use a 0.7 mm pencil. I’m starting to draw with shadows. First I draw the darkest parts of the face: the falling shadows, then my own shadows, then turn to halftones and illuminated places and sites. I do not paint glare. Now I turn to drawing in bold pencil. I start with dark areas. I compare my work with photography. I work with a 4 В. pencil That’s all.
