How to draw Santa Claus in pencil in stages for beginners and children?

So, now we will give a drawing of two Santa Clauses, which even a small child can repeat.

You need:

  • eraser
  • simple pencil
  • colored pencils, markers or paints
  • patience and persistence
We will try to draw such grandfathers of frosts! We will try to paint such Santa Clauses!

First draw the Santa Claus that is on the right. It's easier to draw.

Step 1. Begin to draw Santa Claus from the head. We draw a face that looks like a mask for diving or a cloud( or rather, that part of it that the cap and beard do not hide).Then draw the nose, eyes. From the top immediately complement the cap.

Step 2. The hat is ready, proceed to the eyebrows and mouth. The eyebrows are partially covered with a hat, so do not draw them too low. We draw the mouth strictly under the nose, retreating very little distance.

Step 3. Drawing a beard, slightly bending it aside so that the picture is more realistic. Mentally draw a straight invisible line from the nose perpendicular down. Where the beard ends, the line becomes visible. From her in both directions below, draw a flat horizontal line.

Step 4. Extend the trapezium from the lateral sides of the beard to the bottom horizontal line. Now draw a fur: move away from the vertical line in the center about one centimeter in both directions, draw two parallel lines, as in the picture. From below in a semicircle also draw a fur, as shown in the picture.

Step 5. As shown in the picture, draw your hands and collar to Santa Claus. Note that the hands will be on top of the trunk, so prepare an eraser to erase excess lines.

Step 6. Now draw a bag with gifts and gloves. To draw a bag, draw a circle of irregular shape with a sharp curl at the top. Draw the hands as shown in the picture.

Step 7. It remains to draw the details. We make the beard more realistic, adding additional vertical lines, similar to the sharp teeth. At the bag in the place where the hand of Santa Claus, make a few folds.

Step 8. Now color the grandfather and decorate his fur coat with stars.

Now draw Santa Claus in the red coat, the one on the left. His drawing is a little more complicated.

Step 1. Draw a "mask for sleep," that is, the face of Santa Claus. Do not paint your eyes and hat.

Step 2. Begin to draw a face: we make a nose, it should be slightly flattened like a potato. From the nose we draw a mustache, in the upper part we have eyes. Right above the eyes - eyebrows.

Step 3. Drawing the cap. First we make a volumetric semicircle at the top of the head, then we paint the top part of the cap.

Step 4. Begin to draw the torso of Santa Claus. It should turn out to be quite voluminous. Repeat the lines shown in the picture. Do not paint the hands yet, we leave them just circles.

Step 5. Now we paint the beard and the bag well. The beard should be quite realistic, so we make it an "acute" contour, drawing some hairs. Do not overdo it at this stage. We begin after the beard to draw a bag, which Father Frost holds on his shoulder. Do not forget about the folds on this very bag. The hand that holds the bag is made more oblong, add a thumb.

Step 6. To the left of the head draw the part of the bag. Draw the left hand and sleeve. Draw a staff consisting of a long stick and a snowflake at the top. Note that the staff expands to the bottom, so do not make it the same in all places.

Step 7 .Now you need to give the bottom of the fur coat a normal appearance. Draw fur, drawing it inside the contour of the fur coat. The lines are made slightly gently so that there are no abrupt transitions.

Step 8. Santa Claus is almost ready. We get rid of the invisible lines with the help of the eraser and make the contour of the fairy-tale character more precise.

How to draw a Snow Maiden in pencil step by step for beginners and children?

The Snow Maiden is an important character of Russian fairy tales, granddaughter of Father Frost. He is young, tender and beautiful. Always accompanies his formidable grandfather, helps animals in the forest and gives out gifts.

It's not very difficult to draw a Snow Maiden. In this part of the article we will give examples of drawing Snow Maiden in stages in two versions: childish and more realistic.

Step 1. Drawing the head. To do this, draw an ellipse( slightly flattened from above and below the ball), draw the eyes, nose and mouth. This is the very beginning.

Step 2. Now we make the Snow Maiden more realistic. We add the cap, not forgetting that all the lines should be smooth. Draw the chin so that it stands out against the background of the cheeks.

Step 3. At this stage we draw eyebrows, ears and ornaments. From the ornaments of the Snow Maiden there will be earrings in the form of snowflakes, as well as a brooch on a hat. Do not forget to draw eyebrows.

Step 4. Begin to draw a fur coat. First, draw a collar from the ears. Each side of the collar consists of two perpendicular lines. Straight through the center we run from the chin to the end down a straight vertical line, and below, a horizontal line perpendicular to it. This will be the basis for the future fur coat.

Step 5. Again draw from the collar a trapezoid - two smooth lines that go to the hem of the fur coat.

We begin to draw a fur coat

Step 6. At the fur coat draw fur ruffles, going on the bottom and vertically. Fur need to draw a smooth lines, do not try to draw it on the ruler. Observe the perspective.

Step 7. We plan the middle of the fur coat. You can do it by sight, but you can measure it with a ruler. We draw a horizontal line in this place, which will serve as a guide for the hands. Now draw the hands. They start from the collar and end exactly on the horizontal line that we just held. A few centimeters above the line draw fur on the sleeves.

Getting paint coat

Step 8. Now draw a mitten shape, as in the picture. In one hand the Snow Maiden should have a bag. The bag is an ellipse of irregular shape, strongly stretched from above, in the place where the Snow Maiden holds it. Now draw the folds of the bag - just a couple of lines and the bag looks bulky.

Step 9 .We finish the asterisks on the sleeves and the fur coat. If you want to achieve minimalism, then just skip this step.

Step 10. Finish drawing the Snow Maiden, adding color to the drawing.

Step 2. Now draw a "skeleton" - denoted by a circle in the upper part of the body - there will be a waist and chest. From this mug we hold two sticks - these are the future hands. The lower part of the trunk( where the hem will be) begins to draw more clearly.
