Welcome everyone I am back with another drawing lesson for all you artist out there that love sports. My first tutorial is going to be on how to draw boxing gloves step by step. I chose to do this lesson because boxing is one of my favorite sports to watch because I can really get into the sport. Now many of you know that the combat sport of boxing has been around for ages. In fact boxing dates all the way back to the second millennium BC. There is even evidence that the ancient Greeks boxed in a very similar way to the way we do today. Now a day’s boxing consists of two men in a big square ring with a pair of oversized cushioned gloves. The two opponents throw their fist around to try and get a K.O or T.K.O. Those two abbreviations stand for “knock-out” and “technical knock-out”. A knock-out is when a boxer falls due to a blow to the head, face, cheek, jaw, nose or any other part of the face. A technical knock-out is when the match is pronounced a winner by three judges due to the fight going to all 25 rounds and each one consists of three one minute rounds. There are four different types of boxing techniques or style; first you have the old fashion boxer which is called a boxer/out fighter, and some popular out fighters are Willie Pep, and Muhammad Ali. Next you have the boxer/puncher and these boxers are very good at what they do. Now, boxers who fall in this category are great when it comes to fighting up-close and they use a combination of moves. A popular boxer that falls in this category is Sugar Ray Robinson. Next you have the brawler/slugger and these fighters have great punching technique and power but very poor foot movement and suave appeal. Rocky Graziano was a brawler and he was very good at it. And lastly you have the swarmer/in-fighter boxer, and believe it or not but some of the world’s greatest fighters fall in this category. These fighters like to throw upper cuts, hooks, and other powerful hurting blows. Fighters like Mike Tyson, Rocky Marciano, and Manny Pacquao are “pressure fighters”. As you know these guys can sometimes “take a bite” out of the opponent. Well I know that you will have fun with this lesson because it is easy and fast which means you will learning how to draw boxing gloves step by step in no time at all. I will be back with more so stay tuned.
