Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a Leprechaun. I'm going to start off by drawing two eyes, I'm going to draw a circle for each eye, I'm going to draw them pretty close to each other and the inside, two circles for the pupils. Underneath the eye I'm going to draw a curve, underneath that, underneath that another curve and two nostrils on the sides for the nose. We'll go ahead and draw some rounded cheeks and a nice smile underneath the nose and underneath that he's got to have his orange beard. So we'll start under the lip and it's going to go around and up the sides to the ear, we'll shade that in a little bit, we'll go ahead and draw the ear. I'm going to draw a half circle for the ears and of course the eyebrows on top, again, orange, put some hair coming down a bit and on top of that is going to be his Leprechaun hat. So we're going to draw an oval surrounding his head, let me erase this part a little bit, we went too far, and then extend that on top on an angle, draw these two lines going up on an angle and a curved line to close it off. He's got this belt buckle thing on the top, color this in yellow. And for his clothes, draw his shoulders, chest, and torso. We'll stop right here, he's going to have a belt, we'll draw on that belt and again, belt buckle, color that yellow, we'll draw his two arms coming at an angle and then back, we'll put his hands on his hip. So the back of the hand touching the hip and fingers going out and up. We'll have this come down a little bit and we'll turn this into a jacket, shade this part in just a little bit. And last, we'll draw his pants, we'll go down a little bit, not too far, close that off and we'll draw the green socks coming out and the shoes, we'll make a little curl at the end of the toe very similar to elf shoes, and of course, I'm going to put that belt buckle on the shoe as well. And that's it, that is how you draw a Leprechaun. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
