Well I hope you guys liked the first lesson that I submitted on Wolverine from the new X-Men Origins movie. This next tutorial is going to be on a mythical creature from Greek Mythology. So, for my second lesson I will show you “how to draw a Cyclops step by step”. Little is known by me about this creature. All I know is that it is a very popular creature from Greek myths. A Cyclops is a giant that has one eye in the middle of his head and or face. A popular Cyclops character from one of my favorite movies was Rell the Cyclops from the 1983 movie “Krull”. He was big and strong and he was also the one that made it possible for their incredible fire horse ride that they took in order to reach The Beasts castle. The Cyclops creature has been written into movies and stories since the beginning of Greek mythology. It is thought that Cyclops is the son of Uranus and Gaia and this is according to the poem “Theogony” by Hesiod. Hesiod was a Greek poet that wrote about Greek mythology, farming and even astronomy. Now like the film “Krull” Cyclops was strong, very emotional, and often thick headed. Nowadays the word "Cyclops" is used to describe a one eyed person, creature, superhero, and even sculptured or hand drawn art. The word also holds the meaning of “one”. There is so many ways you can draw a Cyclops. You can make them look like the Cyclops creatures from your favorite video game, or even from one of your favorite movies. I chose to draw a typical looking Cyclops that is described from Greek mythology. I kept it real simple and only dressed him in a loin cloth. Some of you out there might want to cloth your creature with your own wardrobe. So let me go now because I still have four more tutorials to submit. Have fun learning “how to draw a Cyclops step by step”. I shall return my fellow DragoArt members and artists.
