“Give me a “D”, give me an “R”, give me an “A”, give me an “G”, give me an “O” give me an “A” give me an “R” give me an “T”, what does that spell? DRAGOART! I just had to go ahead and write that out because I was thinking and saying it out loud. This first tutorial of the day is going to be on "how to draw a cheerleader", step by step. If you are a football or basketball fan, that means you must be a fan of all the cheerleading teams that yell and shout out cheers for their teams to give the players encouragement to do their best and try to win. My sister was the one that asked me to do a lesson on a cheerleader. She has this fascination with them and when she gets to that certain grade level, she plans on trying out for her schools cheerleading team. A cheerleading team is called a squad and it usually consists of eighteen heads with two alternate cheerleaders in case they need a fill in. Not all cheerleaders are girls either. In order to do the different moves they need some guys on the squad to perform lifts and throws. Cheerleading starts in middle school, then high school, and of course collages. High school cheerleading teams are broken up in two squads; they have a Varsity and a Junior Varsity. For high school, these girls perform their cheers out of school spirit and competition. During football and basketball games they not only provide cheering, they also support the team, pump up the team, and provide entertainment for the crowds sitting up in the bleachers. They do this by using a series of routines consisting of tumbling, dancing, jumps, cheers, and stunting. I had fun drawing out the female image of a typical cheerleader and I think that you guys will have fun learning how to draw a cheerleader step by step. I hope you try and tackle this lesson with full force and for the girls that finish the drawing; you can color her in and decorate her outfit in colorful shades. Just think, you will also have fun learning how to draw a cheerleader costume as well.
