How to draw a cricket player
1) Draw the upper border for the figure.
2) From the upper border, moving downward, tentatively determine the position of the head and draw an oval to represent its conditional size.
3) Draw a vertical line through the middle of the head. This will be the central vertical line of the figure.
4) From the upper border of the figure, draw six identical segments, equal to the height of the head. The last segment will act as the lower boundary of the figure. Through the boundaries of the segments, draw horizontal lines.
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 half the width of the head – to the left of the line.
• Four segments equal to the width of the head – to the right of the line.
• One segment equal to three-quarters the width of the head – to the right of the line.
Through the boundary of each segment, draw vertical lines. The extreme left and right segments will act as the vertical boundaries of the figure.
Mark off the width and height of the picture. Add guidelines for the cricket player’s body and head.
Draw his torso and bat.
Add guidelines for the cricket player’s arms, legs and cap.
Outline the shapes of the legs, arms and a peak of the cap.
Define the facial features of the cricket player, his gloves, sport shoes and knee-guards.
Detail the clothes.
Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail.
Contour the cricket player, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
