STEP 1. You're basically drawing the figure of a statue of the Greek goddess. Start with a round shape for her head, and then draw the boxy shape of her torso. Add the facial guidelines and a neck line which you will have to attach to her body shape. Incorporate the some torso line to form a flowing pattern that will end up looking like a toilet paper roll holder when you are done. Add the limbs and move to the next step.   STEP 2. Begin sketching out the shape of Aphrodite's face structure, and neck. Next draw the hairline along her forehead which in this case is a bit curly looking. Next add the nose, shoulder lines, and some of the toga which is what Romans wore around those times.   STEP 3. Finish sketching out her head and hairstyle, and then draw in her simple looking plastered face. If you want to go all out and sketch her to look different, by all means go ahead. You will then sketch out both of her arms and hands, and then sketch more of the toga. As you see the right side exposes her one breast but the left side is completely covered. Sketch out the shape of her breast and then sketch the loose fitting make shift sleeve. Her hand is holding cloth material on the left so sketch that in as well.   STEP 4. Continue to sketch out the rest of her toga and be sure to draw this material to look loose. Toga's where made of wool, and sometimes they would go over a tunic which was made of linen. The average toga was cloth that was about twenty feet long, and wrapped around the body.   STEP 5. This is now your last drawing step and as you can see, all you need to do is sketch out the rest of her toga, and then draw her feet and sandals. Did you know that after the second century B.C. only men wore togas and woman had to wear stolas. Erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. This is it, you are done. Color her in, or you can choose to leave her looking like a milky white plaster statue. I had fun, and I hope you did too. It's not everyday that you see a lesson showing you how to draw Greek gods after all.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
