If you are familiar with the book or animated series of Deltora Quest, you should know that the main protagonist is called Lief. In the new series that will be airing on Cartoon Network, one of the secondary figures is going to make a lasting impression on the hearts of the new fans that will be attracted to the series. The second lesson of the character from Deltora Quest is going to be "how to draw Barda", step by step. As you can see in the thumbnail he is a very muscular looking individual that goes around saying he is a homeless beggar when the truth is he was once a guard that worked in the palace. Nowadays he is Lief’s protector or bodyguard as we like to call them. Apart from being incredibly big in stature, he is also a very skilled swordsman and a joker as well. Even though he likes the company of his pals, he still thinks that they are a bunch of juveniles that still have a lot to learn. Anyways, Barda might me a bit more complex to draw then Jasmine because of how big he is, and how much detail is needed with his design. I do still think that you will have a blast with learning how to draw Barda because he is such a cool looking character. I shall return so stay tuned in. Adios peeps and enjoy the drawing day!

How to Draw Barda, Deltora Quest

how to draw barda, deltora quest step 1

STEP 1.

First, before we begin, start off with basic guidelines to aid you into proportioning certain areas of this character, correctly. Always draw from head to toe. NEVER draw in random spots. Also, try to draw these guides lightly so they're easier to erase later.

STEP 2.

It's time to start the shape of Barda's face. Keep in mind, he has a shapely face that requires a few sharp edges because of his beefy and aged appearance. Start with the top of the head and work your way downwards to the upside down "Y" shape. Take your time and refrain from rushing.

STEP 3.

Then, work on the facials to get his face shape finally completed. Start with the downward slant of the eyes, and work on the nose. You don't see much shape of the nose because Barda's perspective is being viewed a bit from below. Meaning, the body will appear smaller at the top and proceed to get bigger at the end (feet).

Next, it's time to draw the hair and beard for Barda. Make sure you begin with the hairline first and work on the long hair afterwards. Finish by drawing the squared shaped beard.

STEP 5.

Ok, since we've completed the head, let's work on the shoulders by drawing his large cloak. Take your time with this, and keep in mind the direction of the body. We'll first start with the right flap of the cloak, which covers most of Bard'a shoulder. Try working on each ruffle of cloth one by one and then proceed to drawing the right flap of cloak.

Now you will begin the task of tackling the arms and bulky hands. His left hand is in a fist which means simple task to complete. Draw out the right arm but leave it unfinished. End this step by drawing some more of his cape to the left.
