This next tutorial is going to be on a figure that was also president of South Africa. Here is "how to draw Nelson Mandela", step by step. Nelson Mandela was born July 18, 1918 and was the eleventh president to South Africa. What he is most famous for is his aggressive protesting against apartheid which is basically racial segregation stemmed from political and economic discrimination towards non-Europeans of South Africa. Because of his protesting he was jailed for twenty seven years because the apartheid government classified him as a terrorist, instead of the hero that he was at the time. Nelson Mandela is viewed to be the main reason and cause to the end of apartheid. In 1993 Mandela was released from prison and at the same time he was awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize. He is known to South Africans as being the grandfather of all of South Africa. Drawing Nelson Mandela is going to be fun and inspiring because he was a man that made a difference in the world as we know it. I shall return in a bit so stay tuned in. Peace out people, and be sure to comment, rate or fav.
