How to Draw a Pirate Step by Step
Kids or grown ups alike can follow these simple steps with this cute Pirate Drawing guide! I would recommend creating your drawing with a pencil, as you can erase if you have any mistakes or need to remove guidelines. But you can always draw over him with an ink Pen or marker when you are done, to define him some more. Have fun learning How to Draw Pirates!
Pirate Drawing Step 1
Step 1: First Draw a Circle, you can find something round in your house to trace around, like a bottle or Jar lid if you like. Then add a vertical line and a horizontal line down the center, to use as guidelines for the face. We will erase these lines later, so I would draw them much lighter than shown above.
Step 2: Next draw in the eyes on the center line as shown above, leave a white dot on each eye for the highlight. Draw two curvy lines above his eyes for his eyebrows. Draw his mouth about halfway between the middle line and the bottom of the circle. If you don’t want him to frown, you can create a smile instead. Then halfway between his eyes and his mouth, you will draw a small curve for his nose. Draw an Ear just on the right side of his head and add some hoop shapes for his earrings on both sides of his face.
Step 3: Now you’ll erase the guidelines from his face and create the shape that you see above for his bandana.
Step 4: Now we’ll sketch in a rectangle for the guidelines for his body. Draw a line across the middle of the rectangle and begin sketching in his shirt. You will also need to erase the top portion of his head that was showing through the bandana.
Step 5: Let’s create his arms next on either side of the rectangle guide. Add some buttons on his shirt. Sketch in his legs and boots in the bottom half of the rectangle like you see above.
Step 6: We just need to add some additional detail as shown above. Erase the guidelines first. Then make the sword. Add a small circle for his left hand. Much easier than trying to draw fingers, it looks rather like he is making a fist … easy! Draw a belt with a rectangular shaped buckle. Create a circular pattern on his bandana. Then fill in his boots, belt and earrings with your pen or pencil. Or really you can make them any color that you like.
The only thing left to do now is to color in your Cartoon Pirate! Go grab your markers, Crayola crayons, oil pastels or color pencils, or whatever you have on hand, and finish your artwork masterpiece! Let your creativity go wild and use whatever colors you like! You could also add Hair if you want a Girl Pirate or add a beard or moustache for an older Guy if you like. It’s totally up to you!
