Hi, I'm Michael Weisner. I'm an animator, illustrator and graphic designer, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a Terra Cotta Soldier. Let's get started. Alright guys to begin with drawing our our Terra Cotta Sodiers we want to first rough out our soldier. So, start off with his head. Remember that he is statuesque still so he's very solid looking like so. He's part of the eternal guard, so we're just going to have him just stand there like so, draw one arm down, there we go, add a little spear. Now that we've got that, we want to remember that some of their eyes are closed, draw eyebrows. Give him a back ponytail bun, like so. Then for his armor, maybe a chest piece. Then, he's going to have a couple of strings as his belt, and before I forget, let's add a little sword to him as well, in case he loses his spear, there we go. Add his feet. Then, add some detailing to his armor. And there you have it, our Terra Cotta Soldier. And that's how you draw a Terra Cotta Soldier. I hope you enjoyed. I'll see you next time.
