STEP 1. Start with drawing two circle shapes for the torso or bodies of these soldiers. Next draw two smaller circles for their head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw the slanted vertical lines for the guidelines of the guns, and then draw out the guidelines for the arms and legs.   STEP 2. You will now start sketching in their facial expressions and feature. Start with a horizontal line for their hats and then draw out the eyes, eyebrows, noses, mouths, teeth, chins, and facial hair. Move to the next drawing step.   STEP 3. Since these two men are supposed to be fierce and mean, you have to convey that through your art. Draw out the rest of their hat shapes and add some light detailing. You will then draw out their ears, and then add more facial hair on the soldier to the left. Detail the eye on the right hand soldier and then move to the next step.   STEP 4. Now that your faces are drawn out you will start drawing out the weapons. Draw the shafts and barrels of the two riffles and then start sketching out their shirts or uniforms. Shade in some detail on the soldiers face to the right and then draw out the hands as well. Sketch in some crease and wrinkle lines on their clothes and then you can move to the next step.   STEP 5. You will begin sketching out their arms and the rest of the rifle's shape. Once that is done start sketching in detailing and definition to the Union and the Confederate soldiers as you see here. You will also need to draw out their hands as well as the wrinkles and creases on their wool uniforms.   STEP 6. You are almost done with this tutorial and I know if you made it this far you are doing just great. What you will do now is sketch out their coats and then add the buttons and the button holes. Draw out the pouch for the rebel and then add more definition and detail to their uniforms.   STEP 7. This is your last drawing step and what I want you all to do now is finish off the lining to complete the drawing of their uniforms. Finish off the pants and coat for the Union soldier and then the jacket and pants for the confederate soldier. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one and proceed onto the next step where you will be adding color to your Civil War characters.   STEP 8. This is what your finished sketch of the two Civil War soldiers should look like when you are done drawing them out. All you have to do now is color them in. You have just learned how to draw a union soldier fighting a confederate soldier step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8.
