Well so far today I showed you all how to draw a wicked cool hockey puck and a baseball player. It is now time that I submit my third tutorial on another sports character and this time I will be showing you "how to draw a goalie", step by step. Now even though hockey goalies don’t physically skate around on the ice rink, they serve a very important purpose. Their job is to prevent the ice puck from successfully getting inside of the goal net that the goalie stands in front of to protect. There are four different kinds of hockey that is played today. There is field hockey, ice hockey, street hockey and roller hockey. Now field hockey is played on gravel, grass, or artificial turf, using a small, hard ball. Ice hockey is played on a large flat surface of ice, using a puck that is three inches in diameter. Roller hockey is very similar to ice hockey except the hockey players use in-line roller blade like skates to move around the arena. And lastly there is the game called street hockey. This version is very similar to ice and roller hockey except all the players on playing on the very same streets that we drive on today. Instead of using a puck, street hockey is played with a ball instead of a puck. The goalie is the only player that wears an extensive amount of padding all over his whole body. The most popular part of a hockey goalie’s uniform is in fact the hockey mask. This is the very same mask that Jason Voorhees wears from Friday the Thirteenth. I had a lot of fun drawing out this sports character because I actually learned something new. I know you guys will have an awesome learning how to draw a hockey goalie step by step. I will be back with more fun drawing lessons in a bit so keep your eyes open and your hands ready.
