Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a general in the army. So a general is like the leader of the troops and they come in all different kinds of styles. This one I'm going to do like this and here's his head and there's his nose, his eyes are right under the brim of his hat. He's sort of like all fierce because he's a, you know, like fearsome because he's a general and there's his hair. Okay, so that's his head and here's his military jacket coming in like this and there's a little epaulet sort of action and it's coming in to a belt. So he's got a belt there with a buckle and he's got a double breasted jacket with buttons and here's his arm coming forward and the top of his hand is resting on the hilt of a sword which I will draw it after I get his lower body in. And here's his bottom of his coat, sort of a long coat and there is his leg and some boots. He's got boots on and there's his other leg. His pants are tucked into his boots and there is the bottom of his boots and here's his other arm just coming down, his hand and he has like some detailing some medals maybe there on the side, maybe an insignia of some kind on the hat. And here's his sword. It's like that and then there's the hilt of it and then the handle and that is how I draw a general in the army.
