3) Draw another horizontal line equally dividing the upper half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a horizontal line equally dividing the bottom half of the rectangle.
4) Draw a vertical line equally dividing the left half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a vertical line equally dividing the right half of the rectangle.

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Add guidelines for the body. Draw an oval to define Anubis’s head. Add a line, which will act as the center of the head.

Draw the shape of his body. Define Anubis’s body, arms and feet.

Step 3

Outline the shapes of his head and stick.

Step 4

Draw guidelines for Anubis’s legs and feet.

Step 5

Add lines to the body, stick and head. Line the feet and ankh (breath of life).

Step 6

Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail. In light lines, add Anubis’s neckpiece and bracelets.

Step 7

Draw the eyes. Define the details.

Step 8

Contour Anubis, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more details. Erase all guidelines.
