Leprechaun Drawing

This How to Draw a Leprechaun tutorial is designed to keep all of his familiar parts in place, such as brimmed hat, beard and striped stockings, without getting too fussy about any one of them. A slightly oversized head makes a fun cartoon drawing, and gives some extra space to draw all those cute features. That keeps the project fun to draw for students of all ages.

A Leprechaun is a small supernatural being from Irish folklore. They are usually shown as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who love to partake in mischief. In later times, they have been depicted as shoe-makers who have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The modern image of the leprechaun sitting on a toadstool, having a red beard and green hat, etc. is clearly a more modern invention, or borrowed from other strands of European folklore. The most likely explanation for this version is that green is a traditional national Irish color dating back as far as 1642.
