Hi. My name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a soldier's face. So, going to start with the basic face shape, just goes squared off jaw. a couple of lines coming out for the neck, and this guy's going to be in his rain gear with his big helmet on. So, we can use all these little lines that come out. It's like folds in his raincoat hood. And draw a long line and kind of like a triangular bottom for the nose. A line for the mouth. You can draw this line connecting the mouth and the nose, then the up curved line for the chin. And curved lines kind of like as if you were drawing the letter D on each side for the ears, and some almond shape for the eyes. I'm going to draw his helmet on. So, we're going to draw a circle that goes all the way over. We don't have to fill it in. So, it looks like it's fitting over the back of his head. And then make it kind of like a bell shape and goes all the way up. Take away these two lines. We don't need them anymore. And then we need some straps coming down from the helmet. And they can either be attached, but I'm going to make mine coming down, a little rectangle at the bottom of the strap. You can shade underneath inside the helmet. Some lines just to give it a little bit more texture. And then if you want him holding anything, you could draw one line coming up and that could be the tip of any sort of weapon, whether it's a bayonet or if you want to draw a gun or anything you like. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a soldier's face.
