Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Wizard

How to Draw a Great Looking Wizard for Kids and Beginners - Step 1

How to Draw a Wizard Step 01

1. Begin by drawing the wizard's hat. Use pairs of lines that meet in points to draw open triangular shapes. Connect these using curved lines. This forms the underside of the hat's brim. On the top side of the brim, draw additional curved lines parallel to the first. Then, draw two parallel spiral lines to form the crown of the hat. Draw a small five-pointed star at the hat's tip.

2. Erase the bottom portion of the hat to make room for the face. First, use curved lines to outline the shape of the face, including the jagged points of the beard. Use additional curved lines to outline the nose, ear, top of the beard, and texture the beard. Draw several successively smaller circles to form the eyes. Draw a curved line above each to indicate the eyebrow.

"This is so wizard, Ani!"
- Kitster, Star Wars - Episode I: The Phantom Menace

A wizard is a fictional magician or practitioner of magic. Wizards are typically depicted as male, and may also be known as magi, mages, witches, enchanters, sorcerers, or spell casters.

Female wizards can be called wizardesses, witches, enchantresses, or sorceresses.

Since Medieval times, the wizard of folklore was often depicted as a wise old man, such as Merlin of the King Arthur stories. Others act as villains.

Some are silly and comedic, prone to drunkenness or misconjuring. Their appearance often includes a long, white beard and a pointed hat. Their powers are often occult but occasionally result from future technologies.
