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

Step 1.

this is going to be a lengthily tutorial to follow so be prepared. Begin by drawing out the shapes for the body, head, and two hands. Connect them all with some limb lines and then add the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the structure of the face, jaw, and screaming mouth. Almost all of the monster characters have bony looking heads and sometimes bodies. When you are confident that your Jockey looks like the one here, you can move to step three.

Step 3.

Carefully sketch out the eyes which should look raw, scared, and extremely dried out. Color the insides of the eyes that surrounds the eyeballs. Sketch out the detailed mean brows and sketch in the flared nostril on the left side. Lastly, draw some simple lining to add wrinkle or crease definition on the forehead, and under the eyes.

Step 4.

This is going to be a little tricky because you have to begin drawing out the wide open mouth. The first thing you need to do is draw the tissue that is stretched on the sides. This type of mouth tissue is usually on characters that have mouths that open to an extreme like you see here. You will then draw in the high gum line and then begin drawing out the teeth after that. Sketch in a tongue and add detailing as well to the back of the mouth.

Step 5.

Okay, the Jockey has hair that look like it belongs to an old man or a guy loosing his hair. I told you this because when you start sketching out the hair, you have to make it so it's bald in the center. Begin sketching out the hair but be sure to do so in a raised fashion. The edging or lining of the hair in the front should be bold and dark. Sketch out the ear, and add inner detailing.

Step 6.

Now its time to draw out the back of the neck, and the hunched over back. When drawing out the back you have to also draw in the spine bones or vertebra that are protruding out of the skin. Continue sketching out the back of the body, and then when you come to the area where the arms go, be sure to make the lining torn or tattered. Sketch out the chest and be sure to add a few layered folds.

Step 7.

We are slowly progressing along folks, but you are doing a great job. Carefully start drawing out the long, lanky but toned arm of the Jockey. Start at the base or shoulder, and then work your way down. Notice how the arm starts to flare out? That's for the humongous hands that you will be drawing out later.

Step 8.

To finish the right arm, you will need to begin sketching out the large powerful hands. Start with the thumb, and then slowly work your way to drawing each finger. The lining for the hands should be edgy. Draw in the bones on the top of the hand, and then add in the nails.

Step 9.

great work so far guys. you have completed almost half of the Jockey from Left 4 Dead 2. All you do now is begin the process of drawing out the left arm which appears to be somewhat slender then the right arm. Like before, start at the shoulder, and work your way down the arm until it starts to flare past the wrist.

Step 10.

Complete the left arm by sketching out the mangled looking left hand. Look how gross the long fingers and bent joints are. This is a real creepy zombie alright.

Step 11.

It's official guys, you are almost done with this long lesson. You will start sketching out the bottom half of the Jockey starting under the ribs. Draw out the right thigh, and then work your way down to the knee, and lower leg. Swing around and begin drawing out the toned left leg like so.

Step 12.

All you have to do now is draw out the feet, and yes he is barefoot. Continue to sketch out the feet until they look nice and detailed.

Step 13.

Here is where you will be finishing off the Jockey by adding all the detailed lines and definition all over. Beofre you begin, you will need to start erasing the guides and shapes you drew in step one to clean up the drawing. Once that is complete, you can start sketching the shirt line, holes in the sleeves, and all the muscle definition on the body like the neck, back, arms, hands, and legs. Draw in the toe nails, and that's it.

Step 14.

Here is what your finished drawing of the Jockey from Left 4 Dead 2. Now you can get busy once more to color it in. I hope you had fun even thought it was hard work.

I have two more Left 4 Dead monster zombies going up today and I know you all love those. To start things off I’m going to upload "how to draw a Left 4 Dead Jockey", step by step. This special infected is a figure that is mainly seen in Left 4 Dead 2. It is a really annoying character because they like to jump, and cling onto your playable character and other members of the team as they use their big hands to basically rip you apart face first. Another thing that the Jockey is known for is how it gains control of your character or survivor. This means they basically control every body movement that you have. They can literally walk you around anywhere they want as they attack you at the same time. The Jockey is one of the more popular special infected zombies in the Left 4 Dead 2 game. Jockeys are also notorious for steering survivors right into witches or even the Spitter. Spitters are also ugly, dangerous zombies that you don’t want to cross because they always spit acid right in your face. These big, ugly monsters have really long arms and big clawing hands. Their backs are hunched over making them even more creepy looking because of the infected mutation. I’m not going to lie, this is going to be a challenging character to tackle as far as drawing a Left 4 Dead Jockey goes. If you come to any halts on your road, just take a deep breath and do the best you can. Try different ways to accomplish a difficult part so you don’t get too frustrated. I will be back with the other zombie so stay tuned in to see who it is. Peace out people and try not to get too creeped out!
