STEP 1. As with all my first steps, you are going to start by drawing out the guidelines to help you draw the mummy in detail and without complications. Start by drawing a circle for the head, two for the shoulders, two for the elbows, one big one for the torso, one for the pelvic area, and two for the knee caps. After you draw all the round shapes, connect them with straight lines for the arms and legs. Sketch in the hand shapes and lower face structure to complete this step.   STEP 2. Now what you are going to be doing here is filling out the lining and shapes by actually drawing the outside of the mummies body. The mummy is a very stiff looking creature, so when you are drawing it out try and remember to keep your lines strong and bold. At this point the mummy looks like a regular human body frame, but that will all change in later steps. This is also a good way to learn how to draw a human body as well. Sketch the lining on the face to help guide you when drawing in the eyes, nose, and mouth.   STEP 3. Now you can start to add the little details on the body of the mummy. His face is suppose to look creepy and scary, so you really don't need to sketch in a perfect looking face. Detail the hands by drawing sharp finger nails and lining the fingers so they look separated. On the left side of the mummies body I sketch a ripe in the wrap with a bloody hole. On the left arm it looks like the bone is actually coming out of the wrap and skin. After you do this move to step 4.   STEP 4. Here is the most time consuming part of the whole tutorial. You will have to sketch and draw out all the cloth that is wrapped around the entire mummy. The top of the body looks like its all exposed muscle, but it is actually going to be colored and shaded in as looking dirty and stained with dried blood. On the bottom of the torso near the rib cage is an exposed wound. After you complete all these steps erase all the guidelines that you drew in step 1.   STEP 5. This is the finished sketch. Your drawing of the mummy should look like this when you are done. Good job and all that is left is to color the mummy and shape some crusty looking blood all over it. See ya.   Step 1. Step 2.
