STEP 1. Let's start this first step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes top form a frame for this wooden solider. Start with a circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then add the shoulder lines as well as the arms, legs and waist.   STEP 2. In this second step you will start sketching out the shape of his wooden body such as the arms, torso and legs. Next draw the crazy looking hair on the sides of his head and then add a curled separated mustache and two eye lines.   STEP 3. Step three already? Wow you move fast! What you will do next is draw out the shaping of the jaw which is the cracker part of this wooden statue. Next add a belt and finish drawing out the detailing style of the legs and add the feet. You will then draw a line for the base of the nutcrackers platform that he is standing on.   STEP 4. You are coming closer to the end my friends. What I want you to draw out next is the shape of his hat and then his thick eyebrows which you will need to color in. Add more defining lines to the mouth and then the arms. Cap off the feet and finish drawing out the base of the nutcrackers stand.   STEP 5. This is your last drawing step and you know what they say, save the best for last. This is where you will be adding all the detailing shapes to finish off this character. Add two small rounded eyes with pupils, four buttons on each side of his coat, decorative shoulder pad lines, a small sword shape, two round balls for his hands, and then two straps on the bottom of his coat. You will erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. Once finished and your nutcracker is cleaned up, you will have a drawing that looks like this. All you have to do now is color him in and whala! You have just learned how to draw a nutcracker step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
