This lesson on how to draw an orc will be useful for children primarily in that it will allow them to understand how to draw anthropomorphic creatures that are different from humans.

Orcs are creatures in fairy tales of the peoples of Western Europe and in contemporary works of the genre of fantasy. Orcs are very similar to goblins and are among the “standard” creature types in fantasy.

As you can see, there are quite a lot of small details on the orc’s body. If drawing all of them is difficult, then you can draw an orc without them.

So, if all the art supplies are ready, then it’s time to start the lesson.


  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Eraser
  • Coloring supplies

Time needed: 40 minutes.
