Above: A Step by Step drawing video which will show you how to Draw Leonidas from 300...THIS IS SPARTA!!!!
Below: The art supplies that I used to make this drawing.
Tonight we dine in Hell. If you are up for the challenge, I will teach you how to draw a very angry greek man who likes to kick people in to bottomless pits. It doesnt matter if you are new to drawing the more you sweat here , the less you'll bleed in battle. Just follow my step by step instructions... and remember...No retreat, no surrender. Our pencils will block out the sun...Then we shall draw in the shade.
Merrill.....um this is Madness
Madness? THIS IS KAZANJIANM!!
Be sure to pause the video at the end of each step.
Step 1: Draw in the Beard Shape. Be sure to notice that it is slightly asymetrical. Step 2: Draw in the shape for the hair. Notice that the shapes from steps 1 and 2 are equal in height. Step 3: Draw in the ovals for the eye sockets and the ear shape Step 4: Add the shape for his clothing. This shape does not have to be perfect but notice that it is slightly wider at the neck. Step 5: is a difficult step. The sword shape is slightly taller than the head and it points away from the body and towards the left upper corner of the page. The fingers will be heavily shaded later so it is more important that you focus on the shape of the hand. Take extra time on this step. Step 6: Add some light lines to define the chest and left arm. Do not press hard, just hint at their existence, they will be shaded heavily later. Add an arrow going through Leonidas' chest...... Step 7: Take your time and add the detail to Leonidas' face. Take extra time to observe the placement of the teeth and the eyes. In order to get a likeness this is an important step to conquer. Gerard Butler
