How to Draw Wizards!
The steps to draw your own Wizard are below, but first let’s watch these awesome clips!
The top 3 greatest wizards of all times?
1) Merlin (Arthurian Myth and Legend)
Wow! Everyone has heard of Merlin! I think he started his career in fairy tales like the Sword in the Stone and he continues today in many tales and media. He is one of the most reproduced characters of all time.
2) Gandalf (The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit)
Reminds me of Merlin, Gandalf is J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth wizarding expert. He doesn’t work miracles, instead he’s a fighting wizard with a staff and lots of sage advice.
3) Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter Books)
Dumbledore doesn’t disappoint! If you’re looking for a wizard that is casting spells with a wand, look no further than Albus Dumbledore. He has a wondrous office with loads of cool instruments, a phoenix, and spell props everywhere. He makes the greatest effects onscreen and he’s lovable!
How to draw a Wizard.
First, open Microsoft Paint and split screen these directions with Microsoft Paint.
1. The hat. The Wizard is hat is so important. Pointy and slouchy is how I like to draw it. Tips: The thicker the black lines the better. Go over and over black lines with more black lines.
2. The face outline. Use the Straight Line tool to make the face and mustache. Use the Paint Brush to make his hair. Tips: The Curved Line tool may be hard to use at first, but keep practicing. Go over and over your black lines to make a thick outline.
3. Use the Circle tool to make the top of the Wizard’s staff. Draw the staff’s long shaft with the Paint Brush tool. Tips: The staff is old, wooden and has lots of bumps and knots so don’t use the Straight Line tool.
4. Draw a big long beard. Tips: Use Paint Brush and go over and over the beard to make it bumpy.
5. Draw a long circle shape for his hand and then draw a larger circle shape for his arm. Finally, draw two long lines downward and connect them at the bottom for his robes. Tips: You can use the Straight Line tool.
6. Make a skirt for the bottom of his robes. Tips: Use your Straight Line tool.
7. With the Paint Brush tool, make a square shape for the Wizard’s elbow and a belt and lines for the Wizard’s chest.
8. Make a couple more lines for the bottom of the Wizard’s robes and then two feet poking out of the bottom with triangles.
9. Make a small triangle and then a bigger rectangle for the Wizard’s sleeve.
10. Make a bigger half Circle for the Wizard’s bottom sleeve with a couple of lines that will make his robes look more realistic.
11. Make the Wizard’s hand. Tips: Make a Straight line and then the letter C. Connect with Paint Brush strokes and just 1 line representing his fingers.
