How to draw the dad in a business suit (+coloring)

A father is not less important in the family. And your child thinks when it’s a holiday’s time – what can I give to my dad? There is no need to invent something complicated. The best gift is the gift that is created with your own hands. We offer you to learn how to draw the head of the family. You can draw your dad together with your mom if it’s not a gift. You can use the drawing to draw the whole family. You can add your mom with a baby buggy to your dad.

You need:
1

Head's oval

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.

Body contours

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.

4

Legs' lines

We begin to draw these lines from the body, they give the right shape to the body. Draw them, slightly narrowing downwards.

Body correction

We need two more lines, which look like brackets, to make the figure of the right form. And don’t forget about arms.

Body correction

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.

Removing of the unnecessary lines

Also remove the lower part of the oval. The father’s figure is straight, his arms are down at his sides.

Sleeves

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.

Collar

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.

Collar

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.

Tie

The collar is exactly the same as the letter V. It ends at a small distance from the neckline.

Tie

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.
