How to Draw a Female Dwarf

Step 1.

The basic guidelines and shapes are need to be drawn in first. This involves the head and torso guide shapes. Sketch in the facial guidelines and arm guidelines.

Step 2.

Define the shape of this female dwarf's face like so, and then draw in the hairline and ear shape.

Step 3.

Dwarves usually have thick chunk like strands of hair almost like dreadlocks. When you draw in her hair, draw the top in rows and then the length.

Step 4.

Let's work on the face. Start with the eyebrows and then her eyes. When that is done you will draw the nose and lips. Her mouth should be closed and her expression should be stern.

Step 5.

Let's work on her body next. Start with the bearskin coat or cape. The wrinkles should be added and the edges of the lining for the bearskin should be ruffled to show the texture of the cloak.

Step 6.

Lastly, let's finish everything off by drawing the rest of the body. This is the chest, waist and hips. Add the top and then draw in her skirt like clothing. Add the ripples and folds to the clothes, then detail the stomach. Erase the mistakes and guides as well.

Step 7.

Here is the line art when you are all done. All you have to do is color her in and show folks the dwarf you have drawn.

It's not often that I make lessons on dwarves so along with the other fantasy style tuts I will upload today, I decided that it was high time that I made a new tut on a dwarf, but this time I will be showing you how to draw a female dwarf, step by step. I love the way this dwarf came out because not only does it show her tough stature, it also showcases her beautiful feminine side. I know female dwarves are not usually beautiful, that's why I didn't want to go too extreme and draw this dwarf looking like a model. The end results came out looking amazing, I hope that you like this version of a female elf. I will return all day today with some really fun and interesting lessons so be sure to stay put.
