How to Draw Zeus
- Draw the Head.
This part of the body, as in the case of other people, should be outlined in the form of a simple circle.
- Draw the hair.
Use long and flowing lines for this.
- Draw the torso.
Draw the upper torso first, then the part of the clothing covering the thighs.
- Draw a laurel wreath and ears.
First, create the branches of the wreath, then add the leaves. Sketch the ears with a pair of curved lines.
- Draw the beard of Zeus.
First sketch out the top line of the beard, then the bottom edge as in my example.
- Add the facial details.
Depict the eyes. Add highlights inside them using circles. Then add the eyebrows and mouth.
- Draw the limbs of Zeus.
Using smooth lines, depict the arms first, then the legs. Sketch the line of clothing on the torso.
- Erase the guidelines.
Try not to touch on the important lines of the drawing. After that, you can trace your Zeus drawing.
- Color Zeus.
Color the laurel wreath green and leave the hair and clothes white.
