Especially for beginners, I created a fascinating lesson on how to draw a puppet. This is a controlled theatrical puppet, which the puppeteer sets in motion with the help of threads. It can also be a small toy that small children enjoy playing with.

In the figure, you can see that the body of the puppet consists of several elements connected to each other. All parts of the puppet’s body are very mobile and there are threads at the ends that are connected to the crosspiece.

During the lesson, try to observe all proportions and strive to ensure that your drawing is as similar as possible to my example. Take your time and carefully draw all the lines that are marked in red. Now take all the necessary art supplies and start the lesson.
