Hi, I'm Al Krakosky, and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a pilgrim. We're going to start off with the face. And for that, we're just going to draw half an oval. Come down to a point for the chin, and then back up. Draw a curved line on top of the head, it's going to be a hat on top of there which we'll get to in a moment. Draw his neck, close that off, draw two lines for the shoulders, but then we're going to curve in then go straight up. Do the same thing to the other one. This creates part of their wardrobe. Then from there we'll draw the rest of the shirt, come down and we're going to stop. Right at the stomach area, there's going to be a belt there. So we'll draw in the belt, a large belt buckle in the middle, then finish off the belt. The shirt will extend a little further down and then curve across and connect. Before we get to the pants, we'll go ahead and draw the arms and sleeves. You're going to come down but not all the way. We're going to stop, we're going to draw this large rectangle on the bottom where the wrist is. We're going to do the same thing for this arm. Come down and stop and draw a large rectangle. Then we can draw in fingers. Same thing over here. Now we can go ahead and draw the pants. Legs are going to come down, they're going to stop a little bit below the knee. Then do the same thing over here. Then right below that, we'll go ahead and draw the socks. Long, white socks leading down to the shoe. Going to draw the tongue and the rest of the shoe. And these shoes are going to have the belt buckle on it as well. Harder to see down here because it's smaller but it's there. And where this belt is, we're going to draw some creases in the clothing. So just draw a couple lines on each side like that. Do the same thing down at the knee. Couple steps left. We're going to draw an oval surrounding the head on top to create part of the hat. Then we're going to go straight up. Actually we'll go up at an angle to get thinner on top. Curved line and close that off. And the belt buckle again in the center up here. And last, we'll give him some ears, a nose, a smile, two eyebrows, and then two eyes. And you have yourself a pilgrim. That's it. That is how you draw a pilgrim. Thank you for watching, and keep on drawing.
