How To Make Demon Drawings

It seems that demon drawings are always very popular. Throughout the ages people respected, feared and hated these bogeymen at the same time.

They appear on historical paintings inside church’s ceilings or frescoes on walls.

Demons represent a part of religious culture.

In the past demons were created in order to frighten people and keep them under control.

If that was a successful strategy I don’t know.

But that is another story.

I was wondering what kind of demon to draw for this page if there are so many. How many?

As many as any culture is able to create or imagine.

This one is really historical. I have no idea how old this sculpture is. I found it as a decoration on the entrance gate on a historical building in Europe.

You are going to love this!

Virtually any weird looking creature can be a potential demon. You see, themes of drawing a demon are really unlimited.

Also, whether the demon looks scary or rather funny, it all depends on what culture were you raised in.

So I hope you’ll like this one.

Let’s jump right in. Sketch a rough body outline contour. It is OK if you do not match it perfectly on the first trial.

Avoid using eraser if possible and just draw new pencil lines over the previous ones.

Outline the ears, the eyes and the nose, as you see in the sketch above.

Demons often resemble to humans. Do not be very surprised or astonished if a demon has human features. Humans created them, didn’t they?

You need not to mind so much about keeping the absolute resemblance while you draw.

You can develop new ideas while drawing. If you do, I would love to see them.

Mark out the mouth and the hands wrapped around demon’s legs. Ears are almost half the size of demon’s head.

Now you can start to concentrate more on details like area around the eye and fingers.

Demons are often painted with hooves and tails. This one does not have any tail but has hooves.

Begin work out the details on the head and the face.

You can copy exactly this drawing but it is good if you use your fantasy too. Don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s only drawing ;-)

Continue shading the body. If possible do it by short pencil strokes. Something similar as on the above picture.

When you finished shading the body with short pencil strokes your demon drawing should look something like this.

I recommend short pencil strokes because they pretend to look like a fur. Do the final shading touch and your demon drawing is ready.
