In this lesson we will be drawing another face from our history even though the face is not that far into the past. Here is "how to draw Saddam Hussein", step by step. Saddam Hussein Abd al-Majid al-Tikriti has made a name for himself both in a negative manner, and in a positive one. I say negative because to the United States he was a criminal, but to his own people he was a savior. Of course some of his people also felt that he was a monster but that is a question of how those people saw him. The United States first started seeking justice against Saddam Hussein when President George Bush and the British Prime Minster Tony Blair made accusations that he was harboring weapons of mass destruction as well as being involved with the al-Qaeda. I'm not going to get into the politics of this man and what he was accused of because then we will have debates all over Dragoart. I just feel that figures that played roles in our history should have lessons made on them. Drawing Saddam Hussein is a learning experience as well as an artistic one. Enjoy the tut folks and stick around.
