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 head. This will be the central vertical line of the drawing.
3) From the upper border of the head mark a segment above that is equal to the height of the head. This is the upper boundary of the figure.
4) From the upper border of the head, draw downward six 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:
• Two segments 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.
• Two segments of equal head width – 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.

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of Zeus. Add guidelines for his body. Draw his head. Add a line, which will act as the center of his figure. Add a pedestal.

Add guidelines for the god’s arms, hands, feet and facial features.

Step 4

Outline the shape of Zeus’s arms, hands, legs, feet, beard and chest. Outline his hair.

Draw the shape of the god’s chiton, stick, hair and nose. Add his eyebrows and mustache.

Step 6

Draw his eyes, mouth, mustache, fingers and toes of the god. Detail his clothes.

Step 7

Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.

Contour Zeus, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail.
