How to Draw Hercules
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Hercules from Walt Disney's Hercules. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start with a circle near the middle of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the top part Hercules's head.
Step 2: Draw a small V-shaped arc under the head as a guide for Hercules's jaw and chin. The left side of the arc should angle a bit to create the jaw. These combined two shapes make the guide for Hercules's head.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the head. These will be construction lines that will help you place Hercules's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two small shapes similar to half-circles as guides for Hercules's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The shape on the right should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
Step 5: On the left side of the head draw a big C-shaped curved line as a guide for the ear. Hercules has big ears, so don't draw this shape too small.
