Okay let’s do a quick recap on what I have submitted for you all today. So far I have shown you how to draw a longhorn head skull, Taz the Tasmanian devil, anime people kissing, and a beautiful peacock. For my fifth drawing lesson of the day I will show you how to draw a Gladiator step by step. This is a very popular warrior that has been requested by several members of DragoArt. I never had enough time to fulfill this request because it is a very time consuming project to complete. A gladiator doesn’t just carry a sword; he is also equipped with a heavy shield, a helmet, chine guards, wrist or forearm bands, and even sometimes plated chest armor. Roman gladiators were fighters that battled in ancient Rome in big arenas that are also known as coliseums. They would often battle or fight wild animals like lions and tigers, condemned criminals like murderers and thieves, and even each other solely for the purpose of entertainment to the Roman people in many cities during the Roman Empire years. At first gladiator fighting was not something that was accepted, but the more people attended, the more people accepted it. One of the best movies that was released depicted gladiators to the T. It was called “Gladiator” and it stared Russell Crow. That movie was so awesome and I absolutely fell in love with all the special effects and adventure it took you on. The gladiator that I am going to show you how to draw is in a typical stand still position fully equipped with a gladiator sword, a brassard (which is the armband armor you see wrapped around the wrist), a greave (which is the plate of armor that covers the shin of your leg), and a thick leather belt. Sometimes they would also wear helmets that had tufts made of horsehair. Some helmets were silver and some were gold depending on the rank of gladiator that was fighting. This tutorial will show you how to draw a gladiator step by step. He is very basic and easy to tackle which means you should finish him in no time at all. I will be back soon with more drawing fun so stay tuned.
