This is another interesting lesson about drawing a mystical character and in it, I would like to tell and show you how to draw an ogre. An ogre is a legendary monster usually depicted as a large, hideous, man-like being that eats ordinary human beings. The ogres are negative characters, but there is no need to be afraid of them because they are only fictional and do not exist in real life.

At first sight, this character will certainly seem evil and scary, but in this lesson, you will learn to draw an ogre in a cartoon style, so it will look quite cute and funny. In mythology, ogres are often depicted as inhumanly large, tall, and having a disproportionately large head, abundant hair, unusually colored skin, a voracious appetite, and a strong body.

Now I suggest you start drawing an ogre. I’m sure that this lesson will be interesting and useful for you!
