I'm here today with a tutorial that took me a total of ten hours to complete. It is a character drawing that I started in Livestream yesterday, and when I signed off of streaming, I continued to work on this female figure. Today, I will be giving you a lesson on recreating her for yourself. Here is "how to draw a barbarian", step by step. The idea to draw a barbarian came from the movie 'Conan the Barbarian' which is as you know one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's first films. My brother watched part two, and it was then I had an idea to make a female version of this type of warrior. Even though I spent many hours on this female figure, I am still unhappy with the finished results. The drawing style is a bit different, I was trying to replicate a comic book feel with the body pose, and definition of her figure as well. The clothing is one of the few things that I actually love about her character. The leather material with the wool ruffle really adds a certain roughness about her overall appearance. The boots are supposed to be capped with a goat's foot. This is supposed to make her clothing and accessories rustic and very realistic when it comes down to how barbarians used to dress. Her headband and hairstyle is also very awesome, and the way that her sword is detailed I like as well. My sixteen year old brother suggested that I draw her holding the head of a snake after she won a battle against the huge snake like Conan had to do in the first Barbarian series. Anyways, here is the results of my hard work, I hope you enjoy drawing a barbarian of your own. Thanks and peace out!
