How to draw a Policeman
1) At the top of the sheet, determine the location of the head and draw its conditional size using an oval.
2) Draw a vertical line through the middle of the right side of the head.
3) From the upper border of the head, draw upward a segment one-quarter the height of the head. This marks the upper boundary of the figure.
4) From the upper border of the head, draw downward seven segments equal to the height of the head and one segment equal to half the height of the head.
5) From the central vertical line of the figure, measure and draw:
• One segment equal to the width of the head – to the left of the line.
• One segment equal to two-thirds the width of the head – to the left of the line.
• One segment equal to the width of the head – to the right of the line.
• One segment equal to half the width of the head – to the right of the line.
Through the boundaries of the segments we draw vertical lines. The extreme left and right segments are the vertical boundaries of the drawing.
Mark off the width and height of the policeman. Add guidelines for the body parts (except arms) and define their proportions. Outline the head.
Sketch the neck and torso.
Add guidelines for the arms and hands. Mark, with short lines, their proportions. Define the facial features.
Delineate the policeman’s arms, legs and hat peak.
Draw the hands, boots, hat and collar.
Outline the fingers, a tie and a holster. Add lines to show the boots and the head of the policeman. Define his features: a nose, eyes, a mouth and eyebrows.
Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to details.
Contour the policeman, trying to vary the thickness and blackness of the line. Add more details and the ground. Erase all guidelines.
