How to Draw a Pilgrim

Step 1.

Start this step with a medium circle for the head and add the facial guidelines and hat lines. From the perfect circle shape you will then add the body and limb guidelines as shown for the legs, arms, and shoulders.

Step 2.

In this next step you will first draw a slightly curved long line for the lid of the pilgrim hat. Then you will next draw the arched lines for the shape of the eyes as well as a long dash for the pilgrim boy's mouth. Shape out the lower portion of the face as shown and then start drawing the clothing and legs as shown.

Step 3.

Now as you can see your pilgrim is starting to take form. You will next draw the top of the pilgrim hat and then the rim of the hat. Next cap off the eye lines and then turn that closed smile into an open mouth smile. You will then draw the collar and cuffs of the shirt and then the bottom lining as well for the shirt.

Step 4.

Now here in this step you will draw the box shape in the middle of his hat for the buckle. then give the pilgrim boy some eyes and a cute little button nose as well as a tongue. Make a collar line in the shirt and then the sleeves. You will then draw out the shape of his hands as well as his pants and legs along with the pilgrim shoes.

Step 5.

This is your last drawing step and all you will do is detail the buckle by drawing another square inside the shape you drew in the previous step. Then draw him some eye brows and pupils that you will need to color in. Draw some small lines for the fingers and then detail the cuffs of his pants as well as add a buckle to the shoes. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

When you are done this is what your pilgrim boy should come out looking like. All you have to do is color him in and you are really done. You have just finished this tutorial on how to draw a pilgrim step by step. I hope you had an awesome time with this tutorial i will be back with much more in a bit.

Hello all and welcome back to DragoArt and welcome back to another fun filled tutorial for the day, (well actually a few new tutorials for the day). Today I am going to start this first tutorial off by staying in the Thanksgiving theme one last time. I already showed you how to draw a turkey and a cornucopia, so this tutorial will be on how to draw a pilgrim. This particular pilgrim I decided to draw is a bit cartoonish because I wanted everyone to be able to tackle this tutorial with ease. In order for you guys to do that, I drew a little boy pilgrim. What is a pilgrim exactly? Well, Pilgrims were English Separatists or the early settlers of the Plymouth Colony in Plymouth, Massachusetts. These people settled and established in 1620 and they became the second successful English settlement in what was to become the United States of America. These puritans came to Plymouth Rock by ship and the ships name was the Mayflower. I can remember taking a field trip when I was in like the first grade to Plymouth Rock and there was an apple orchard and a huge pumpkin patch. It was wicked fun when I went there and I learned a few things as well. This is a cute tutorial of a pilgrim boy that I thought would be a smiple image to get you started. You will learn how to draw a pilgrim step by step with detailed instructions. So step up to the plate and start tackling this tutorial on a cute little blonde headed pilgrim boy with his cute little pilgrim hat. I will be back with more drawing fun in a bit so stick around.
