Hi. I'm Al Krakosky, and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw Archimedes Ant. going to start off with the face, so we curve down, go out for the cheek, and then curve back down to the chin. Do the same thing on the other side. We're going to do these curves above where the eye would be, just like that. And we're going to draw in large eyes, so a large oval, for each eye and a big smile for his mouth. And then for his cheeks, going to put his mandibles curving out, jagged on the inside. Then we'll give him some pupils and on top here, he's got this hat of his, and you color that part in. And for the body, it's almost like a peanut shape. Going to curve down for the chest and then curve back out, a larger portion on the bottom, like that. And on his neck he's got this necklace with these made of teeth. So, a necklace with some triangles hanging off of it. And he wears a vest. I'm going to leave it open. And he's got his two legs on the bottom, bent at the knee and we're going to give him boots on the bottom. And we'll go back and we'll erase these lines that are in the leg that we no longer need. And he's going to have two arms on both sides. So, we'll come out, have this arm be bent up. We'll give him a glove, and four fingers. Most cartoon characters always have four fingers, not entirely sure why, just easier to draw. That's the way I draw them. The same thing for this arm on this side. Give him his glove, his four fingers. And his two other arms that have come out, bent. Put his hands on his hip. Then add the glove, and you're just about done. We'll add a little bit of shading, out some up in the hat, on the boots, and we''ll add the ground and you're done. That is how you draw Archimedes Ant. Thanks for watching and keep on drawing.
