Especially for beginners, I have developed a new lesson in which you will learn how to draw a cape. This is a type of clothing that is convenient to use in bad weather. The cape is usually worn over all clothing, and it helps to hide from rain and wind.

In this case, the cape is a long piece of fabric that is tied around the neck with a knot. Thus, the cape is securely held and well covers the shoulders and back. The cape is worn by both men and women.

In this tutorial, smooth curved lines will be used. This will be a good training for you and in the future you will be able to use the acquired skills when you want to draw a man in a cape.

For coloring, you can use the same colors that are suggested in the instructions, or you can use any other colors. Please note that the inside of the cape is painted in a darker shade.
