Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw the Lincoln Monument. So we're going to start with the two pillars on either side and he has his hands on so two long lines on the side with a rectangle on the bottom and the same on this side, two long lines, rectangle and a curved top. Get his hands on first. It can be nice and simple with just some curves for his fingers that connect over the thumb and the same on this side, make it really simple because he's got a lot of detail to him. Put his head in the middle, just do an oval for now, make it easier, a couple lines for his neck and then fill in, a couple lines coming across for his shoulders, this line will connect to his arm and this line to this arm. Some lines coming down to show his body and then this is kind of an up shot because we see looking up at him so we're going to draw his knee right at the top here and a long almost oval, then his foot can be an oval, it's another line coming in over the top because we're going to see the front and the top of the foot and give him a bit of detail and see underneath his pant. A couple lines across to create the stairs that his feet are setting on, his other leg is back a bit so we'll only see like the front of his foot and fill in the seated area and then his jacket, just a couple drapey lines coming down, his collar and then drapes from his sleeves and his seat, filled in all across. Let's just shade that in to make it easier to differentiate, some lines down his pants to create creases and then let's go with his face. He's got a very famous face so let's get the hair right, just a couple little circles around, his ears. Let's make him a little bit more straight and pointed. Let's do a little upside down t for his nose, small eyes and fill in his hair. He's got a little waistcoat and there we go, a couple lines down for the pillars and my name is Daisy and that's the Lincoln Monument.
