Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a person playing soccer. You're going to start off with the head so we're going to draw an oval for his head, come to a point for the chin, then curve up and connect. His neck is going to be sticking out a little bit because he's going to be running. Draw the neckline, connect up, draw the shoulder, half oval for the sleeve and his arm is going to be bent. Then draw his forearm and his hand, open, thumb and his fingers. So for his shirt, for his jersey, it's going to have some waviness to it because he's in motion and for his legs, when you're drawing someone running the leg and arm on the same side are going to be going in the opposite direction. This arm is back so this leg up here would be forward. So we'll draw his shorts, his knee and his calf, bent forward in the running motion, close it off at the ankle and his other leg is going to be back and bent up. So now we can go in and draw the shoes and do a trapezoid type shape for that, round it off at the points, same thing for this side and cleats on the bottom. You can just do little lines for that on a small scale drawing. So, if this leg was back, the arm over here would be forward. So let's put his forearm sticking out, draw his hand, open. Then we'll go over here and put some designs on the shoes and some laces of course. I'm going to go up and add some facial features. We'll give him an ear, a nose sticking out a little bit, a big smile, an eye and an eyebrow. I'm going to give him some spiky hair and we can go in and draw some design on his shorts, put some stripes across. Put a little bit on the sleeve and one across in the middle. We'll do two across in the middle. We'll do the same thing and do some stuff for his socks and put some stripes in there. We'll add the grass that he's running on and of course, he's playing soccer so we need to add the soccer ball. We'll put it right by his front foot here just like that and it's in motion and so is he. Do some motion lines. We'll flatten out our grass a little bit better. And that is it. That is how you draw a soccer player. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
