How to Draw a Left 4 Dead Boomer, Left 4 Dead Boomer

Step 1.

Boomer is a big fat zombie, so this means you will be drawing out some very round shapes for the mannequin. Start with a slightly oval shape for the head, and then draw a huge round circle for the body which is also going to be for the bloated belly. Connect the two shapes with a torso line and then draw in the limb guide.

Step 2.

You will start sketching out the head and notice how there is blubber layers starting near the cheek, moving down the neck. The ear needs to be drawn in as well. Boomer has folds, and creases.

Step 3.

Now that the initial shape and lining of Boomer's head is all drawn in, you can start sketching out the swollen left eye, and closed right eye. Draw out the bangs for his hair line, and be sure to use a jagged stroke for the tips of the bangs. When that is done sketch out the wide shape of the nose, and his swollen lips or mouth.

Step 4.

Eww, as you can see drawing Boomer starts to get nasty because now you will be drawing out all the nasty growths that are bubbling out from under the chin and neck. I would recommend starting to the right of the pus filled growth because it's the largest lump. Once that is sketched out you will need to continue to draw out the mid section and the small lumps on the left side. Add some pimply details on the surface of the bile filled mass, and then sketch out the eyeball, fold lines under the eye, and then draw in the sharp zombie like teeth. Don't forget to add the warts on his lumps, and definition around the nose and mouth.

Step 5.

Okay guys, as you know Boomer has a tight fitting shirt on which is going to be stretched and ripped from Boomer's body bloating to maximum capacity. Start by sketching out the shoulders and sleeves like so. When drawing out the shoulders you have to incorporate the lumps that are growing all over the upper body including the shoulders. Draw in the sleeve line, and then begin sketching out the sagging man boobs that hang off the the sides of the body. Next, draw in the bottom of the shirt, and then add the wrinkles and folds for added detailing and definition.

Step 6.

Just looking at this thing is getting me sick. If I had a weak stomach I probably would have thrown up by now. Okay, forget all that nonsense and lets get busy. You will now sketch out the fat bubbling arms and hands. He is deformed in every way possible so when you draw out the lumps on the arms, be sure to incorporate the folds in a layer concept. Once the arms and hands are set, you can draw out the big, infected filled belly.

Step 7.

OMG, are you looking at this? This is definitely a character that is a mess. Before you start drawing in those bile sacks, you will need to sketch in the detailing on the arms which is a series of bumps, lumps and even warts. When that is done draw a total of four masses which are misshapen and deformed looks. Add some detailing lines around the lump in the middle that replaces the belly button. These are what you call creases from the belly expanding.

Step 8.

Hold it down guys cause you are almost done. All you have to do here is sketch out the bottom half of Boomer's body. This is the back end, and legs, The lining should be uneven, wrinkled, and creased. Make sure that you draw out the legs in a very deformed manner.

Step 9.

You can now finish off the character by drawing out the extra layer of stomach which I like to call an egg, and then draw out the fuggly looking feet that almost look like a pair of oversized socks. Add some elastic detailing to the waist, and begin erasing the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 10.

Here is what Boomer looks like when you are all done. I know he was hard work, but it was worth it in the end if you are a fan of Left 4 Dead.

I had no idea that submitting characters from Left 4 Dead would be so popular with a lot of the members on the site. Today I am going to show you "how to draw a Left 4 Dead Boomer", step by step. The Boomer has got to be one of the ugliest and grossest creatures in the game. Its big fat stomach and enormous double chin puts this zombie on my top ten list of all time disgusting figures from a game ever. Now even though Boomers are ugly and pretty scary looking, they are not as dangerous as a Hunter or Witch. I say this because all these guys do is throw up some nasty bile that comes out in the form of vomit. If the vomit gets in your characters face, you will be temporarily blinded for a while, or have some serious blurred vision. If you are low on health, then you have a real problem because now you are considered weak, and whatever spews on you will most likely kill you. Another way to get puke on you from this fat, bloated cesspool of infection and pus, is if you shoot Boomer when he is close to you. Make sure you push him always before pumping lead into his body because if you don’t, he will just explode and all that nasty mucus and whatever else is inside the infected Boomer, will squirt all over you. Anyways, you will be entertained as you learn "how to draw a Left 4 Dead Boomer" because even though it’s a disgusting zombie, he is still fun to recreate.
