How to draw Tomos : Printable Version

Start by making a circle for Tomos' head. Next, sketch a pair of crossed lines down the centre of the circle to serve as a guide when you draw his facial features. Add two leaf-like shapes to the top of his head for ears, and a pair of short, curved lines at the bottom of Tomos' head to form his neck. Finally, sketch in the shape of Tomos' chest and shoulders.

It's now time to make Tomos' arms. His left arm (the one on your right) is bent so that his hand is resting on his hip. Therefore, draw a V-shaped tube that starts at Tomos' shoulder and ends at his hip with a hand shape. His fingers are curved behind his hand, so be sure to add a small shape (which will later become his fingers) to the one you drew for his hand. Tomos' right arm (on your left) is bent too, but it's also raised. For his upper arm, draw a tapered cone-like shape coming from his right shoulder. Then add a vertical, cylindrical shape to that, and finish this section off by drawing his right hand.

Now you can begin to draw Tomos' face. Be sure to include a snout with his nose and mouth, plus his eyes. Add some details that are specific to the Lupe species by giving him furry eyebrows, a bit of fluffy fringe, and some fur on his snout and cheeks.

Give your drawing of Tomos even more personality by adding the little hat that he wears on the top of his head, more tufts of fur to his ears and the back of his head, and more texture to his hair. Don't forget to draw two circles in his eyes for pupils. Also, be sure to give him a happy smile.

Dress Tomos in a ragged jacket, and sketch in some curved lines below his waist to indicate that he's wearing trousers. Remember that the sleeve on his left arm (your right) is tied up so that it reveals his Desert Scarabs tattoo.

Erase any extra lines you might have. Then, add some patched, fingerless gloves to Tomos' hands. You might want to also give him a gold coin to hold in his right hand. Finally, draw Tomos' Desert Scarabs tattoo on his left upper arm.

Colour your drawing using crayons, coloured pencils, markers, or even a computer program.

To really make your drawing of Tomos special, add some shading and highlights to it. You should now have a picture of the Desert Scarabs' most talented pickpocket!
