Hello! Today’s lesson will teach you the art of drawing an image of a Soviet army.
The lesson is quite complex however we start drawing using a simple stickman – a creature composed of circles and sticks. Before drawing a stickman, keep in mind the basic principles of human body proportions:
Height equal to the lengths of about 7 heads;
3 of them land on your body (from the neck to around the waist);
and 4 and 4.
But be very careful during this time, as the soldier may not be enough to warrant a full-length (such as an instructor or medical professional during one of our classes) and will be in an area just prior to the shot.
Then we move over the top of the body. The top of the head draws the line for the helmet. Mark up the remainder of the lower portion between the lines: vertically, which indicates face symmetry (note that the line is slightly beveled to transmit the tilt of the head) in addition to the vertical line that the eyes follow. Draw a portion of the helmet, and sketch out the shape of the weapon carried by soldiers with their hands (the weapon should be covered by the lower portion of your face). Draw the hand guides in a rectangular shape and then move on to the next step.
The volume is attached to the upper and lower body as well as the arms. Actually, at this point, we simply outline previously-planned lines. Utilize shapes like cylinders, to draw out arms.
Then repeat the process for the lower portion of the body. It is much simpler to accomplish if you display parts of your body in simple figures like belts and groin in the shape of a triangle, legs as circles, knee joints in the shape of a circle, and finally an oval flattened. Also, nothing too fancy, because there is no anatomical representation of muscles and tendons, has been provided by us.
“Volumetric stickman” that is, the shape of the figure has been created and you are able to add details. If you are unsure about the exact location of the soldier or the size of his physique, you can bring an outline that shows the scene to the mirror and gaze at the reflection. In the end, any errors are very noticeable and obvious.
Now, actually take the drawing class to draw an army soldier from the army of red. Take out the additional guidelines from the helmet and draw its contour. Also, draw the strap that is on the cheekbones of the soldier. Draw the eyes, then draw them – one must be reduced in size.
Let’s begin drawing the details starting from the top downwards and work in the direction of the foot to head. The clothing is the next thing to be drawn. Draw the sleeves as well as outline folds of fabric, and the cuffs. Then, draw a strap that runs across the body diagonally, the collar, and touches which eventually are large pockets that sit at the top of the chest. By using short strokes, separate fingers as shown in the following example.
Draw below, and sketch the lower part of your torso as well as the legs of the soldier. Then draw the strap as well as the side pockets, after that, bags and a bag and free-ly lying the bottom of the jacket. First draw the strap and side pockets, the bag, and the bottom that is lying freely on the jacket (note the smooth curve of the line of the soldier’s jacket at the point closest to the leg, it should show his position). Then, the legs. Remove any extra guidelines, then circle the leg’s contours Then, make the leg’s contour slightly wavy, and create wrinkles on the fabric. This is a good idea The legs must be a lot of volume, to emphasize the cut of the pants.
It’s already near to the things we want. Let’s add more detail for the soldiers. In this step, we meticulously sketch the right arm of the warrior and the edges of the buttstock on the rifle. Take a look at our sketch and attempt to replicate the steps we took in drawing. Always draw small details that are not obvious like elbow patches, edge collar buttons, folds, and buttons. Draw the knuckles to the side of the hand.
Then repeat the process, however, this time on the other arm. In this case, as opposed to the earlier stage there are fingernails and it is necessary to identify the nails. Also note the phalanges however, the rest are the same – cuffs patches, buttons, elbow region, and folds.
Create your Mosin rifle. Remember that the majority of the components of the gun barrel were constructed of wood. To visually communicate the substance, draw some lines that run along the trunk on the front area. Draw the short horizontal lines that run across the barrel. The first is situated close to the front sight and the other one is located in the vicinity on the hand’s left. Draw the trigger, sight, and belt (note the belt buckle as well as the inverted belt buckle’s position).
Inscribing details on the torso. Create stripes along the collar. the horizontal line of fasteners as well as the pockets. Take note of the frame, which is located on the outside of the pockets. Also, note the folds that extend through the belt. Don’t forget to sketch the bags as well as the belt buckle. Then, trace the strap (the one that’s on the belt of the soldier) and compartments for belt buckles. Attach a few smooth and short folds on the lower part of the jacket, like in our case.
Sketch the legs and start by drawing the right leg. Draw a circle, keeping the previously planned curve. Draw the lines of his pants and mark a rectangle around the knee area, and draw the boots on the thick rough-soled shoes. Make sure to fold the boot.
Then we will detail the second leg. Draw a circle around it, then mark the folds, and draw the cloth around your lower leg. Draw a thick sole for the shoe and draw the lacing. two strokes over the sole that will be identified through the folded lines.
This is not bad It not? Let’s try to apply shadows. The first step is to apply an outline of the helmet of our soldier. Before starting make sure to go through the 6th step of the course on drawing grapes. firstly, it explains the basic structure of realistic shadows. then, a shadow that is placed on the grapes is very similar to the shadow on a helmet of a soldier in this lesson.
When applying the shadow you must determine the position where the light source is located. the light is directed toward the front of the soldier. the source is situated at the top of its growth. It originates from our rights.
Create shadows by using the light source as well as smooth hatching. Make sure to include an area of light reflex that is situated at the edge of the helmet.
Apply the shadow to your right arm. It is important to note that every fold will drop an easy shade, however within the region of the trapezius and deltoid muscle shadows are particularly thick.
The use of light cross-hatching indicates the shadows that the body has and increases the number of layers within the areas with the highest density of shade.
It is only necessary to add shadows to the legs, and our sketch is complete. Apply shadows as previously mentioned, but use the lightest and smoothest hatching of various layers.
