Hi again everyone welcome back to DragoArt once again. Today I am going to do tutorials on some interesting and well known characters. The first drawing tutorial today is going to be showing you how to draw Santa Clause or Saint Nick. I am not even going to say that most people know who this chubby old man is because the fact is everyone is familiar with Santa Clause. The myths and tales of Santa have been told for centuries by millions of people. The stories of a jolly old man are usually told to children when they reach the age of five or so. I can remember when I was told about Santa. My parents described to me what he looked like and what his main purpose was. They first told me that he was an old man that had a long white wavy beard that wore a red suede suit with white cuffs on the arms and legs. He also wore a pair of black boots, black gloves and a black belt. His mode of transportation was a fancy slay that was pulled by nine reindeer with the leader having a red nose. He resided in the North Pole and lived in a place called Santa's Village. This place was filled with working elves that made toys for boys and girls. Santa also kept a list with the names of all the children in the world. He would put check marks next to the children that were bad and they would get nothing but coal for Christmas. As we all know Santa Clause delivers toys to children on Christmas Eve. That is what my parents basically told me. But everyone that believes in Jesus Christ knows that December 25th is the day that baby Jesus was born to Mary and John from Nazareth. Kris Kringle is a mythical man that is loved by boys and girls from around the world. This tutorial will show you how to draw Saint Nick step by step. The instructions are simple and I know you will have fun. I will be back with more tutorials in a bit. Until then peace out!
