Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a Greek God. Going to start with his body. So his head is pretty square. They have very thick jaws. A thick neck, and a very broad shoulders. Going to pull all the way down into his legs, which we don't really see because we're going to be drawing clothes over the top so we can just draw a couple lines all the way down. Give him a ground line so we can see what he's standing on. So basic idea for their clothing is a toga which is like a big sheet wrapped around them. I'm going to start on this side of the shoulder and just draw some curved lines this way to his waist. Pull it in with a belt or a sash. Let's give him a sash. And then long lines to the ground so a toga is kind of like a dress. It brings it all the way down to the bottom where his feet are. OK now to make this less basic and more realistic, we need to put a lot of lines in where the toga is to make it look like it's fabric. So I'm actually going to draw them diagonally. It makes it look a bit more interesting. And these lines kind of look like folds in the fabric. The same with his sash bit up here and the sash across his waist. Finish off his arms with a couple round ovals for muscles. A simple hand. And the same on this side. And then for their hair, because usually they're very long or very short, I'm going to draw mine very spiky and short. A little C for his ear. And then this guy is going to have a beard. A little spiky beard. And just finish off with a couple dots for eyes, a long striking nose and a mouth. And there we go. My name is Daisy, and that is how you draw a Greek God.
