Hey, what's up? Chris here. And today, we're going to be learning how to draw a Roman helmet. Let's do it. Alright, the first thing we're going to do is, we're going to come down like this. And we're going to go back down, like this. Then, we're going to come around, oops, let me fix that. We're going to come around with this, and we're going to fix that by bringing it up. And then, closing it off with this line here. And now, what else, we're going to go over that line. And we're going to follow, we're going to dip down a little bit, then we're going to come down this way to the end. O.k., now, we're going to draw one line like this,and a dot. That's for like highlighting against the illusion, and shine is coming off, of it. Next, we're going to draw another piece straight up, another line. And we're going to follow the trail of the helmet all the way to the back. Then, we're going to put little dots right there, all the way down, to the back. And finally, we're going to make these squiggly lines going back, all the way. As it goes down, it gets more narrow. Then, we'll draw some straight lines as it goes down. This is the decoration that goes on the helmet. And now, add a little shine to it, and you can go over that, with some more definition. And there you have it. I'm Chris and this is how you draw a Roman helmet.
