What You'll Be Creating

Fallout 4 is here! We've decided to celebrate it by giving you a chance to draw your own Vault Boy. Step by step, you'll learn how to build a complex silhouette out of ovals and curves. Maybe you'll even learn how to draw your own Fallout character in this style? Let's see!

1. Draw the Body

Before we start, choose one of two ways of drawing (if you draw digitally, just skip this):

  1. Draw all the lines very subtly, and then finish them strongly when the drawing is done.
  2. Draw the lines as you want, then use the method from the last section of my tutorial How to Draw a Baby Fox.

Step 1

Draw a circle. It doesn't need to be perfect or very clean.

Step 2

Take a measure from the radius of the circle and draw a line three times as long.

Step 3

Draw a line at the bottom. The part on the right should be longer than the radius.

Step 4

Let's build the guide lines for the legs. First, draw a curve between the middle of the circle and the left end of the floor line.

Find the half point of the middle radius-line. Draw a curve coming though it.

Step 7

Use the same point to draw another curve.

"Close" the shape with the two last curves.

Draw the head circle, slightly smaller than the chest circle and more on the right.
