I submitted some lessons in the past on different Greek gods. Today I am going to fill a request, and submit a tutorial on “how to draw Meg", from Hercules. Meg is a human or mortal women that plays the love interest of Zeus and Hera's son Hercules. In real Greek myth she did exist, and this is how Disney tells the story. Her full name is Megara, but in the movie everyone calls her Meg for short. Before Hercules meets Meg, she is already involved with Hades, God of the underworld. When I say involved I mean, she does dirty work for him in order to pay back a debt. The debt was a very heartfelt one. One day Meg went to Hades and asked that he revive her lover who had died. Hades excepted her plea on one condition, she be his permanent slave for the rest of her life. She excepts his answer because she loves her lover with all of her heart. Soon after Hades revived him, he left Meg and fell in love with another woman. Now Meg is all alone working for one of the despicable gods of all time. In the movie Hercules meets Meg when she is trying to ward off Nessus. Herc steps in and offers his services. She refuses and then Nessus and Hercules start fighting anyway. She later falls in love with Hercules and marries him. Once they are married Megara becomes princess of the Gods. I liked her character in the movie, and I'm surprised that I never drew her before to go along with the Hercules tutorial I did almost three years ago. Anyway, you will have fun learning "how to draw Meg" because she is an easy character to sketch. I will leave you now for a minute as I prepare my other lesson for submission. Stay tuned in peeps to see what else I have in store for you all.

How to Draw Meg

how to draw meg step 1

STEP 1.

Meg is a very pretty and shapely petite woman. Her drawn pose conveys how womanly she is. Start with a circle for her head, and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the hour glass shape of her torso, which is also her figure. Next draw the elongated bell shape of her dress. Add the limb lines for the arms.

STEP 2.

You will now start sketching out the structure of her face. Once this is done you can then add the shapes of her eyes, and her very nice arched eyebrows. Next draw the first long curl and hair line that frames in her face.

STEP 3.

Sketch the rest of her hair style which is pulled back and wrapped on top, but then flares out in the back exposing her long thick hair. Next add a curl that hangs along side of her ear, and then sketch out the nose and her mouth. Add the eyeballs, and then begin drawing in her neck, shoulder, and upper arms. Lastly, draw her breast area and the straps for her dress.

Finish drawing out her arms, and then add her petite hands. You will then draw out her waist, add the detailing lining to her dress, and draw a puff for the waist part of her dress and add the fold lines to that area as well.

STEP 5.

This is your last drawing step. All you have to do is draw out the length of her dress or gown, and then draw the several detailing lines that flow vertically on her dress. Erase all the guidelines and shapes to prepare this Disney character for color.
