Learn how to draw Ded Moroz for kids using our easy step-by-step tutorial! We hope that our lesson will be useful and understandable for you!
Hello everyone! We are glad to see you in a new lesson, in which we will look at how to draw Ded Moroz for kids. A good magician comes to the holiday of adults and children every year. By tradition, he is dressed in a fur-trimmed hat, a large red fur coat, and felt boots. In his hands, he holds a magic staff and a bag with pre-prepared gifts.
The character of Ded Moroz is also interesting: in terms of his qualities, the New Year’s wizard is a little serious, but good-natured, honest, and responsive. To receive the desired gift, you need to behave well in the past year—be kind and decent in relation to others, as well as tell your grandfather a short poem on New Year’s or winter themes. Drawing Ded Moroz will captivate you and help you develop the skills of drawing rounded shapes and various curved lines. Let’s start!
Time needed: 30 minutes
How to Draw Ded Moroz for Kids
- Draw the nose.
You need to start by drawing a small oval for the shape of your character’s nose.
- Draw the mustache.
The character’s mustache resembles a small brush. Draw two equal lines from the nose in both directions and complete their image below with six arcs.
- Draw the fur edge of the cap.
Imagine a fluffy edge like a cumulus for ease of use. Draw it on the nose and mustache.
- Draw the face and eyes.
Draw straight lines from the edge of the hat to the mustache of Ded Moroz on the left and right—you will get the facial features. Now you can start with the eyes: draw two circles near the nose and put a dot in them—the pupil.
- Depict the hat.
Ded Moroz hat has the shape of a hat. Draw curved lines—(the first is long, the second is shorter) and smoothly connect them together at the end, forming the rounded end of the cap.
- Sketch the beard.
The beard looks like an upside-down Christmas tree. Draw arcuate lines on both sides, starting at the line where the head meets the fur trim. The number of arcs varies.
- Draw the fur coat.
Ded Moroz’s fur coat is a quadrangle, the upper part of which is hidden from the viewer behind a thick beard. The fur coat slightly widens at the bottom.
- Draw the sleeves.
The shape of the sleeves is also similar to the quadrangles, partially hidden behind the beard. Please note that they are tightly pressed against the fur coat.
- Draw the fur cuffs.
Like the hem of the cap, the cuffs of the sleeves strongly resemble cumulus clouds, but the shapes are directed downward. The left cuff is slightly larger than the right one.
- Draw mittens.
Circle your grandfather’s mittens with small half-ovals and end them with small protrusions that represent the thumbs.
- Add the bottom of the suit.
Detail the bottom fluffy part of Ded Moroz coat by adding wavy lines, as in the example. Then draw your character’s boots.
- Color your drawing.
Take a fountain pen or marker to trace the sketch. Then color your drawing using crayons, felt-tip pens or paint.
