Draw Christopher Columbus

Step 1.

We will begin with some basic shapes and lines to form the body and head guides for your new character.

Step 2.

Next, using the facial guide you just made, go ahead and draw the shape of Christopher's face and then draw the lid line for his hat.

Step 3.

We will now draw the puffs of hair that fall down the sides of his face like you see here.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw out and color in the eyes. Then draw the eyebrows and mouth.

Step 5.

We will now finish his hat which its sort of pitched at the top and curls up along the sides.

Step 6.

It is now time to work on the body. Draw the left shoulder and arm, followed by the hand and document he is clutching on to. Draw the length of his robe and then draw the foot and color it in as well.

Step 7.

For the last step you will draw the right side of the body which is the arm and hand then draw the rest of his cape/robe. Add the detailing to the bottom of the robe too. Erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 8.

Once the drawing is all cleaned up, you should have a piece of art that looks like the drawing you see here. Color him in and you're done.

Hey guys. Welcome back to another fun lesson and this time we will be tackling something simple and easy enough for everyone to enjoy. I figured since kids are in school, they will be getting History assignments and need to get papers/homework done on the traveler who is said to have started the slave trade. We will learn how to draw Christopher Columbus, step by step. As you know Mr. Columbus was an Italian world explorer, and colonizer who set off on voyages to discover new ground across the globe. Since he is a figure that gets talked about often, I feel that this lesson will be beneficial to anyone who has homework on this man of history. Thank you for joining me with this lesson and I hope that it comes in handy for anything you may need him for.
