Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw an Egyptian mummy. So basically we're going to start off with a head here and it's going to be almost like an oval, but a little more circular because I think I'm going to do it a little more cartoony here. I'm going to start off with an oval, for the head. Then we're going to continue with the body. You can just do another, kind of connecting oval but, connect it with the top but it's going underneath, because the neck is going to be kind of hidden from, by the wrapping. So what we're going to do is draw a couple of arms, just going out like that. And maybe his hands are kind of reaching out like he's going to grab, someone. So you're going to draw a couple little, almost like mittens, because they're his, all his hands and everything are all underneath, under wraps. Then we're going to draw some legs. You're going to kind of maybe bow those out a little bit, so you're going to draw a little arch there and a little arch here. And then we're going to draw almost an upside down U. For the middle of the legs. Draw his feet and you can keep those almost kind of like, looking like, little ducky I guess because his feet are under wraps as well. Now we've got basically the basic outline, it kind of looks like a Stay Puft marshmallow man right now. But we're going to draw some wrapping. And basically you're going to start just following the contours and the curves in his, his head. And just kind of drawing lines so that you can see where the wrappers are going over and where the, the wrapping is going under. Maybe we'll leave a little room for, for his eye or something. And I'll draw like a circle here. Just to see that maybe he's looking out, looking at us or something. Continue kind of going under, and following with the face. And you want to kind of do lines going both ways, just to kind of show that, that there's some that are over and there's some that are going under. And you're going to do the same thing here. And the same thing on this side. And then you're going to do the same thing around the rest of the body. Maybe he's got something, a piece or something that's kind of hanging, couple pieces. I'm going to keep doing that for the rest of his body, just showing, like, things going over and things going under. And just like this. There we go. And then, yeah, and you can just get creative with it too, I mean if you, if you want to add anything, like maybe he's, maybe you want to add a sarcophagus or something. You could also do that. He's got some pieces hanging, hanging off here. All right guys, and that's your basic mummy.
