How to Draw Santa Claus Step by Step

To draw Santa Claus is a bit more complicated than to draw some animals or things, so this lesson will be fairly long. It seems a little strange that we start to draw first the arms and then the body — in this way it's simpler to make Santa Claus proportionate. So initially follow our instructions, then may draw as you like.

1. Draw a horizontal oval:

2. Draw a cover to it — we'll have a cap:

3. Straight under the cap draw the eyebrows like half a cloud…

4. ...and the eyes — two dashes sticking out from the eyebrows:

5. Draw a strongly flattened nose the width of which is about the spacing between the eyes. The nose is almost straight under the eyes:

6. Now draw the «weepers». From the nose to the cap go 2 lines like the arcs on the left and on the right. Pay attention: from the nose the lines don't go exactly side or from below, but half fifth and half eighth. They reach the oval opposite the cover of the cap:

7. From the points where the «weepers» reach the cap, draw the beard. Its curls are larger than the curls of the «weepers»:

8. At this point of drawing our Santa Claus looks like a surly woodsman. Let's add him a smile:

9. We've drawn the head and pass to the body. Draw the shoulder on the level where under the beard the chin is hidden. Draw its upper edge. Now draw the arm: first the outer arc then the internal one; after that draw a smaller oval:

10. Draw a mitten:

11. With this hand Santa Claus is holding a bag with gifts. According to our plan the bag is on the ground, so think how tall Santa Claus should be.

12. Opposite the first arm draw the second one. In this hand Santa Claus will hold a magic stick, that's why the arm is drawn at an angle of about 45 degrees:

13. Leave the palm and pass to the body. Now we'll have to rely on the good eye: draw the edge of the fur coat and the lower fringe. We'll draw the felt boots under the fur coat, that's why the lower edge of the fur coat should be a ittle higher of the lower edge of the bag which is on the ground. Pay attention: near Santa Claus' right arm (for us it's on the left) an edge of the fur coat is also seen. The main here — your Santa Claus may be different: he may be thicker or taller, his bag is wider or narrower and so on. It's quite natural that your drawing won't be worse because of this.

14. Draw the felt boots,

15. ...a wide stripe in the center of the fur coat and a small oval — a fringe of the pocket. In my picture the second pocket is hidden under the bag, in your's it may be seen.

16. Now pass back to the palm which is holding a magic stick. Start with the thumb…

17. ...all the rest fingers are curved like such a flourish. Actually I haven't complied with the size, but it turned out well too:

18. Draw a magic stick in the fist — almost perpendicular to the palm. One end of the magic stick is on the ground. Its end isn't seen in my picture because of the felt boot. In your drawing it may be seen and decorated as desired.

19. Eventually draw some knob and paint the magick stick.
