Draw the head’s contours in the form of an oval. Look at the people’s faces. They are not perfectly round. You can correct the figure if you know exactly what figure looks like your father’s face. Let your mom help you to draw the figure.
We draw the contours in the form of an elongated oval, because this figure helps us to draw the contours.
Add arms' lines
The arms’ lines are drawn smoothly and carefully. Connect these details with the head, then it will be easier to draw the neck.
We begin to draw these lines from the body, they give the right shape to the body. Draw them, slightly narrowing downwards.
We need two more lines, which look like brackets, to make the figure of the right form. And don’t forget about arms.
Erase unnecessary details to make it easier to draw the arms. Make the shoulders more quadratic.
Removing of the unnecessary lines
Erase the upper part of the oval. But not all of it, because its lines separate the arms from the body.
Also remove the lower part of the oval. The father’s figure is straight, his arms are down at his sides.
Now you need to draw sharp corners using straight lines. Do you remember how the jacket looks like? Its sleeves are square, bends create corners at the elbows. Don’t draw too large sleeves, because the body should occupy the most of the area.
The jackets are sewn in such a way to make it possible to show a neckline in order to see the tie. The neckline resembles the letter V.
The collar is square, laid on shoulders. Do not finish your drawing, focus on the triangles and separate the jacket from the trousers at the level of the sleeves’ end.
Line for the buttons
Buttons’ line shows the area where we must draw the buttons. Pay attention, it starts in the neckline, and it is split at the bottom.
The collar is exactly the same as the letter V. It ends at a small distance from the neckline.
Tie is a must-have accessory for a businessman. But you mustn’t draw it from the neck. Dad has the shirt under his jacket. First, draw its collar, the tie starts from it.
Don’t draw a lot of buttons. There are two or three buttons on business suits.
Clothes are ready, we are starting to draw the head’s details. Dad has a good hair and his hair is divided with the help of the line.
The ears must be opposite. Draw the barely visible lines using your ruler, draw the ears. Then lines can be erased.
Shoes must match the clothes and they must be of a formal style. Businessmen wear such shoes.
We must add some volume to the hair because his hair doesn’t fit closely to his head.
Erase the inside lines when you draw details.
Eyes can also be drawn with the help of two lines. They will be located straight then. The distance between them should not be big.
Nose and smile
The nose is always in the center of the face between the eyes. You can draw it as it’s shown in the instruction or you can try to draw the same nose as your father has. Don’t forget to add a smile.
Eyebrows are small, draw them as the little dashes. The pupils are in the lower part of the eyes.
His hands are hidden in the pockets, you can’t see them completely.
Draw fingers on his palms, separating them with the help of the lines.
Draw ears' details
The main thing is to pay attention to the details when we draw people. Draw short lines on the ears, depicting auricles.
