How to Draw Jafar from Aladdin
Aladdin was such an awesome flick from Disney and I will always carry that animated movie in my collection. I have three favorite characters from the movie and the macaw named Iago is not one of them. Abu, Aladdin, and Jafar are my favorites out of the all the characters in the flick. Second best is the Genie, and Jasmine. This lesson will show you in detail œhow to draw Jafar from Aladdin step by step. Jafar is probably one of the most evilest characters that Disney ever created besides Cruella DeVil. He is vial, evil, has no remorse, and he gets his kicks off by living off of the pain and deceit he causes others. In the movie Jafar is the trusted adviser to the Sultan who also happens to be Princess Jasmines father. He controls the Sultan with his snake tipped staff and his main goal is to be the most powerful person in the world. At first Jafar only wanted to become Sultan, and so he began his journey for the one item that can make all his traitorous dreams come true, the magic lamp. Jafar tells everything he is planning to his trusted bird Iago, but even he is a little conniving bird himself. In the end Jafar does get all his wishes but with the last one, Aladdin tricks him into wishing that he becomes a genie. Aladdin's plan was to get Jafar to wish to become a genie because genies spend eternity inside of a gold lamp until they are rubbed out and used. Even then the genie has no freedom, they must live their entire lives in a lamp until they get wished free. The lesson that you will be learning from today will teach you "how to draw Jafar" from Aladdin step by step. I will be back soon with more drawing fun so stay tuned into DragoArt.com. Peace out and happy drawing.....
The first step to drawing Jafar is very easy to do. You will first draw out a circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw the lining for his shoulders, arms, staff, and mid section for the entire body's line of motion.
As you can see you will be working from top to bottom. Start by drawing Jafar's head which happens to be his Arabian hat as well. You will then draw the sides of the neck and then the shape of his face which looks like it is closed in with the hat. Jafar has a very narrow shaped face so you must convey this through your art. You will also need to sketch out the eyebrows and his lanky looking beard. Lastly draw the tips of his shoulders and then some of the front of his suit.
There is a total of six steps when learning how to draw Jafar, what I want you guys to do in this third step is first start detailing the lining designs on his hat. Then continue to draw out and color in his eyes, nose, mouth and then the side cloth that is attached to the advisory hat. Proceed onto drawing out the shape of his shoulders, and then his torso, waist and lower shape of Jafar's clothes. Draw out the fingers for his right hand as well.
You will continue to draw out Jafar's clothes starting with his arms and or sleeves and then some of his exposed hands. Thicken the staff a bit and draw out the cape of his cloths.Detail the cape as well as the belt and then draw his foot and or shoe as seen here.
Here is your last drawing step and all you have to do now is finish drawing out the snake headed staff and then finish drawing out his arms and left hand. Once that is done you will erase all the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.
Here is what your Disney Aladdin character should look like when you are done. Color him in and you have just completed this tutorial on "how to draw Jafar" step by step. Hope you leaned something new today I will be back again later.
