Today, we are presenting an exciting drawing lesson. we tried to make the lesson easy and complete at the same time. We chose that we would draw an alien, and did it with the traditional view. There is one caveat: in our lesson, the alien appears friendly and sweet but the typical aliens are terrifying. In today’s lesson, it’ll be a fun alien. Let’s discover the art of drawing an alien at a beginner’s level!
First, we draw an oval-shaped shape like an egg inverted. Usually, when drawing the characters, we begin drawing their heads using this shape, eventually rendering them less like eggs. In this lesson, however, it is the case that the heads of aliens are going to be like an egg until the conclusion of the lesson.
The face can be marked using two lines that, one being horizontal and shows the eye’s position and the other vertical, showing the symmetry of the face. Notice that the eye line is higher than the center of vision of the head. It is near the chin and is much more powerful than the forehead. In the same way, we sketch the skeleton of an alien.
Then we will continue the lesson on drawing an alien for those who are new to drawing. Let’s draw the design that represents the creature. Draw arms in the shape of cylinders. Then, indicate joints with round figures. Below the head, outline the neck (slightly longer than the human neck) below that draw the torso. It is slightly extended downwards. Draw the legs, which are composed of a cylindrical shape.
The alien we are drawing today is drawn in a simple manner which means any problems regarding facial features need not arise, especially when we take into consideration that the alien has only little facial features – only the mouth and eyes. Draw eyes that resemble a rugby ball, then draw the mouth using two lines that are curved.
Eliminate the extra lines drawn in the earlier steps. Draw a few lines beneath the eyes and a line that is just beneath the lips. Also, draw a pair of lines across the chest. In another stroke, sketch the position of the knee to the leg. Make sure to clean up the entire pattern. Circle the contours and you will achieve something like:
The class is coming close to its conclusion. To finish the look, we’ll add some shadows. Light hits our model from the front, therefore we must include shadows in the areas where light isn’t falling, for example, the rear of our head rear of body as well as the legs. Create shadows by using extremely gentle cross-hatching.
