Today’s drawing lesson will show you how to draw an ancient Roman warrior. Although we drew the warriors in comic book style, there are many small parts in this drawing lesson. This is why the picture might seem too complicated. Your Roman soldier will be impressive if you follow our steps and review the illustrations for each stage.


Step 1
Let’s take a look at the first step. Let’s draw a tall, athletic man. We would have drawn the first step if the man was at his full height.

What is the most significant difference between other drawing lessons? The ratio of the size and proportion of the head to the body. A tall, upright young man will find that the length of his head is equal to 1/7 of the length of his body.

Important: The belt line at the upper extremities does not run directly, but is at an angle.

You may also have noticed that the legs and hands of the Roman soldier are different from this perspective.

Step 2
If your sketch looks anything like ours then it’s okay and we can move on to the next step. You should first draw the basic lines of your face.

Then draw secondary facial lines from the top down.

This is the line that shows the hair’s location. This line is higher than the eyeliner;
It is the line that runs down his nose. It’s located below the eyeliner;
The line of the mouth. The bottom line.

In this step, we need to draw the contours of the upper body of the character. Draw balls after working with the front lines. These will mark the shoulder joints as well as the massive deltoid muscles of the shoulder. Keep your eyes on the first step.

Okay, let’s draw both the pectoralis muscle (we marked it in red) and the stomach area. It looks like a narrow strip that extends laterally.


This difficult step is almost over. A few words on the arms. You can see the numbers in this diagram:

1 – The shoulder. This is the most powerful and extensive part of the arm.
2- The forearm. This is the part of your hands that controls the movement of your palm.
3 – The palm. The palm is shown in our photo clenched into fists.

The blade at the hilt has a narrow tip, but a wide tip.

Step 3
Next, we’ll draw the legs of a Roman soldier. Let’s first divide the legs into 2 parts.

The hip (or femur). The strongest and most powerful part of the leg.
The shin. The bulge in this leg is at the expense of the gastrocnemius muscles.
The grass makes it impossible for feet to see. We draw the steps below.

Draw the lower portion of the Roman soldier’s vestments in this step. Draw a line from the bottom to create a wave. Next, draw several vertical lines toward the torso.

Step 4
Okay, now we have a silhouette. Now it’s time for the details. To get the sketch, we need to first draw the major parts of the face: eyes, nose, and mouth.

Remember that your hair should be drawn in the same direction as the roots of your hair. Pay attention to the positions of the eyebrows and nose at the top and bottom of your ears.

Draw the wrinkles. The wrinkles allow us to express emotions. The wrinkles can also make our hero look older.

This is the final step.

Step 5
Let’s look at the hair of a Roman soldier. The temple area has very short hair, while the forehead and top of the head are longer. This looks a lot like the “undercut” ancient version of the same haircut.

The hair around the temples is also darker. You should draw your hair using straight lines. You should draw the lines of the temple more frequently and with a tighter line. These areas can be lightly painted with a soft pen.

In this step, we will also draw the neck. This part of your body can be drawn with just a few lines.

Now we move on to the final step of this process – drawing the mantle. Note: There are many folds of fabric near the buckle. The gown is shown to the right, but you have the option to cause damage where you like.

Step 6
Okay, now we’ll draw the hand and details of the Roman soldier. This is a simple and small step. Let’s first see the two huge muscles in the shoulder.

The shoulder deltoid muscle. The contours of the area should be drawn and any extra lines should be erased.
The biceps. This muscle is the flexor of your hand at the elbow joint. The same steps should be followed for the biceps.
The forearm is covered with fabric to hide the muscles. Draw the blade. The blade should be drawn with a right perspective (larger than the front edge).

We will then draw details of the body (we are referring to the upper portion). The lines we see can be tentatively attributed to the pectoral muscles. This drawing tutorial shows the muscles in. (step 6). We have highlighted in red lines in the upper portion of the torso. All lines below are more vertical

Step 7
Continue drawing in details of the body of a Roman soldier. In this step, we will detail the hand (right of ours). This is how we can see the muscles.

Deltoid muscle. This muscle creates the rounded contour of your shoulder.
The triceps brachii. This is the main extensor for the shoulder.
The biceps. This muscle is a powerful flexor of your hand
Brachioradialis muscles. This muscle controls flexion of the elbow joint. As you can see, our soldier’s arm is extremely tense. The brachioradialis muscle can be seen through the fabric, so it is easily identifiable.
The wrist’s ulnar extensor muscles. The fabric also clearly shows the brachioradialis muscles.

Drawing the palm is another important aspect. As you can see, we have a clenched palms.

The final picture of this step looks exactly like it.

Step 8
Although we don’t believe it, this step won’t be a scheme or close-UPs. Draw the belt first. It consists of four horizontal lines, as you can see. The outer layer of leather plates is located below the lower belt line. The second layer, which looks similar to a normal fabric, is located beneath the outer layer.

Step 9
We now have a final lesson in drawing. The entire anterior surface of your thigh is occupied by the quadriceps femoris. It has been marked in red. We can also see a patella. The patella is a small, curved bone that covers the knee joint. It does not allow him movement laterally.

Step 10
The drawing was a difficult lesson. The shadows are easy. It is easy to draw the shadow contours and then paint them dark.
