One way to draw Santa with a lot of impact, is to just concentrate of drawing his face. If you follow my tutorial that you can download below, you’ll see that it’s made of some pretty simple shapes, they just need to look symmetrical, like any face does. The exception is the floppy top of his hat, which of course needs to drape down over the side of his head.

If you like the colors in my sample drawing, they are made with those Stabilo Power Wallet Markers that I refer to so often. You just can’t get better color choices that can also shade like a dream too.


There are many more fun and easy drawing tutorials like this one, in my giant “Christmas Drawing” ebook in my PDF Shop.

All were created with lots of hands on classroom testing, and designed to take beginner artists from the first step to the last with clear and simple diagrams.

Great for Christmas drawing projects or special homemade cards as gifts or holiday framing. Lots of possibilities!
