On our site there are many lessons associated with the ancient world and with ancient civilizations. For example, we drew an ancient Greek warrior and a Roman legionnaire. Today we will continue this subject, but this time we want to draw an inanimate object. The theme of this drawing lesson is how to draw a sphinx.
First of all sketch out the head and the famous headdress of the sphinx. Use very light lines and strokes in this step.
Now, with the help of several light lines sketch out the outlines of the body of the sphinx, which sits like a cat
Let’s start working with the details and use clear lines. Draw out the outlines of the details of the face as in our example.
Now move to the angular cat torso of the sphinx, drawing it as in our example. Be sure to draw longitudinal lines on the torso.
We got to the last step of the lesson about how to draw a sphinx, in which we will need to draw shadows. Shadows, as always, are drawn using hatching of varying intensity.
The Sphinx is a creature that was in the myths of many ancient civilizations. In ancient Egyptian art, this is an animal with a lion’s body, a human head or a head of a falcon or ram. In ancient Greek mythology, this monster with the head of a woman, paws and the body of a lion, the wings of an eagle and the tail of a bull, the character of the legend of Oedipus. And now you can draw this strange thing. If you want to learn how to draw other mythical creatures – be sure to write us about it.
