STEP 1. Let's start with the essential guidelines that build the form of this figure. You'll want to start with the head first, since it will be one of the focal points. There's lots of lines to draw for the guides, but it is well worth the effort. Be sure to sketch the lines lightly to ensure easy removal at the end.   STEP 2. Next, let's sketch the shape of the face and the eyes. Notice how the eyes are similar to the "Eye of Ra", another symbolism of ultimate godly power. I tried embodying this character in many factors of symbolism. Try to draw the face within the guideline range to ensure accurate results.   STEP 3. Then, we'll complete the face by adding the brow definition and the eye in the middle as well as the Bindi dot. Keep your proportional distance within the eyes, nose, and mouth.   STEP 4. Taking a deep breath, we'll begin by sketching the outside form of the hair. Draw the outlines thicker than the detailing lines; this will vary the complexity, making the image more interesting.   STEP 5. Now, the headdress, which is my favorite part of this tutorial. I know this may seem overly complex, but please, bare with me. Start by drawing the outside of the headdress, then work your way to the patterned beads below. Take your time and work your way to sketching the details inside the headdress, finishing off with the eye.   STEP 6. Ok, we'll take things slow and start off with the left arm, which is less complicated than the right. Reference various pictures of old Hindi art of gods and notice how the limbs are soft and realistic. Try to keep your cool as you work on the arms and eventually the fingers.   STEP 7. Finish off the rest of the arms which are in a praying position. Leave a space open at the bottom so we can easily sketch in the rosary beads.   STEP 8. Now, it's time to sketch the robe with the patterns dotted at the edges. Again, take your time and pinpoint where to draw each line correctly.   STEP 9. Next, slowly working from top to bottom, let's draw the bracelets and other ornaments that detail the wrists and neck. Notice how all the jewelry has the "All Seeing Eye" symbols on them. This conveys even more symbolism of power and control.   STEP 10. Lastly, finish off by drawing the wings. Start with one wing at a time so you won't lose yourself. Draw them in layers too, to lean on more accuracy.   STEP 11. With initial cleanup and further proportion checking you should end up with an accurate first draft of this. Get yourself a black marker or pen and ink out this baby into nice - thick desirable lines. I hope you've enjoyed this lesson. Thanks for viewing and enjoy!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
