How to draw a goblin</a>

Goblins are the characters of Celtic mythology, which became popular in our time thanks to the works of JRR. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit."

By depicting these fabulous creatures, the artist can give the full will of his imagination.

You will need

  • - paper-
  • - a simple pencil-
  • - eraser-
  • - black marker-
  • - colored pencils, markers or paints.



Start drawing with a simple pencil drawingAuxiliary lines that will indicate the contours of the goblin figure. Draw a circle to indicate the head. Swipe down the line to mark the growth of the creature. Remember that the proportion of the goblin must be very different from the human. You can, for example, lengthen the trunk, shorten the legs or make a very short, almost invisible neck.


Mark the location of the facial features. The eyes can be portrayed widely apart, the nose small with the nostrils turned out like a monkey, and the mouth bared in a fierce grin. In addition, you can outline wrinkles on the forehead and pointed ears on the sides of the head.


Draw your hands and feet. Decide on the volume and shape of the legs and hands. Draw the muscles on the shoulders and hips. You can also think about what your goblin will be wearing. Since these creatures in fantasy worlds, as a rule, are at a fairly primitive stage of development, the entire goblin costume can consist of one loincloth.


Add the details. Draw a necklace of fangs and feathers on the goblin's neck. You can also decorate your character with wrist bracelets on the wrists and ankles. Think about what weapon your character is armed with. Usually in the literature of fantasy and computer games goblins use spears and short curved swords in combat, but you can give your character a staff or a long sword.


Draw a clearer head and body of the goblin. Add on the fingers of your fingers curved, sharp nails, more like claws. At this stage, if desired, you can in a few strokes designate the world surrounding your character. You can, for example, depict a cliff in the background, and in the foreground there are bushes.


Draw a black marker around the outlines of the drawing. Wait until the marker is completely dry, and erase any extra pencil lines with an eraser.


Color the goblin pattern with colored pencils,Markers or paints. Usually goblins from movies and computer games have a greenish-brown skin color, but you can perfectly make your character a blue-skinned or red-skinned.
