So, How To Draw Drift From Fortnite

In this tutorial, we would be drawing Drift in all his glory and we would do this in seven easy steps. Each step should be followed strictly in order for you to arrive at a flawless and realistic final sketch. With that said, let’s begin.

Step 1: Drawing The Torso

Using the image as a guide, our character’s torso would be drawn using the 3/4 drawing scale. This simply means that the right view facing the audience would be bigger in size than the left view. The torso would also be divided into two by a straight vertical line. Having drawn that, go on to divide the torso by two horizontal lines. The first horizontal line should be drawn to highlight the collar bone region and the second should be drawn beneath the chest to highlight the chest region. With that done, go on to draw the lines within the torso that highlights our characters muscular build. Next up, create a base for our character’s hands by drawing a medium-sized circle at the upper right side of the torso. Also, the top of the torso should have an extension. This is essentially a neck for drifts head. Going on, the bottom of the torso should be shaped small like a man’s underwear. At the right side of the bottom of the torso, draw a circle. This serves as the base for our characters legs. Having drawn that, let’s go on to draw the head.

Step 2: Drawing The Head

Our characters head would be drawn like a medium sized oval shape. However, the chin should be pointed and angled. With that done, draw the facial details and the spiky short hair of drift.

Step 3: Drawing The Legs

Drifts should be drawn on his feet with his legs slightly apart. The legs should be started off like big tubes which gradually reduces as it gets to the knees. After the knees, the legs should extend out again and gradually get smaller till it gets to the ankles. After that, draw the feet as seen in the above picture. Lastly, complete the legs by drawing four horizontal lines on each leg. Two at the upper part of each leg, and two at the lower part of each leg. Having covered that, let’s take on drawing the arms.

Step 4: Drawing The Arms

Using the above picture as a guide Drift´s right arm would be drawn placed by his side and the left arm would be drawn raised and his biceps being flexed. When drawing the arms, the 3/4 drawing scale would be used. This means that the right arm should be slightly bigger than the left arm. Each arm should be drawn as a big tube that reduces as it gets to the elbow region. The right arm should then slightly extend out and gradually reduce as it gets to the wrist. The palm should then be drawn clenched as though forming a fist. The left arm on its part should continue at the same size from the elbow region to the wrist and the palm should then be drawn clenched as though forming a fist. Finally, using the above image as a guide, draw the lines within the arms which highlight our characters biceps and triceps. Also, draw the horizontal lines in the lower arms. This would be useful for drawing drifts outfit later.

Step 5: Drawing The Outfit

For this stage, our dummy would be faded out slightly and the traces left would be used to draw the outfit. So go on and slightly fade the dummy out then draw his black pants, his sleeveless white shirt, and black face mask.
