In this drawing lesson you can learn how to draw a king. Follow these step-by-step instructions and enjoy the drawing process!
Now I will show you how to draw a king. This character is often seen in cartoons, movies, and books. King is one of the titles of a monarch. This title is usually passed on by inheritance.
The king’s appearance is easily recognizable. There is always a golden crown decorated with precious stones on the king’s head. The king wears a long cloak. You may also pay attention to the fact that almost all of the monarchs had a beard and mustache. You can see all these features in the picture.
This is a very simple lesson, and you will easily draw the king. Here the king is represented in a cartoon style, and such a drawing contains a minimum of elements. You can see that the head is bigger than the torso. The long clothes cover the king’s legs, and the arms are short. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that you learn some useful skills. Now it’s time for you to prepare all the necessary materials and you can begin the creative process.
