Orco, in the hit 80s cartoon – Heman and the Masters of the Universe, is a small wizard-like creature. So yes, he had magical abilities. And also — he kind of resembled a ‘Jawa’, the brown-cloaked aliens from Star Wars: A New Hope.
To simplify this character into shapes, the most basic arrangement to come up with – is just as he looks… a triangle. Here though, I’ve added a few more things to help making the drawing process, all the more fun and easy.
Here we go!
First Step – Like a Triangle with a Hat!
In drawing this character, go ahead and first design a simple lightly-sketched framework – from which to base the lines on before you actually draw them. If anything, it helps for visualizing the BIG PICTURE, and the end goal.
Here it is…
In this case – with respect to the cross over the circle… the intersection is lower than normal. And this is because his eyes are set lower, as his big pink hat covers most of his head – as it probably would any other wizard.
Next – to the drawing!
Second Step – How to Draw Orco
Beginning with his eyes – positioned about the intersection of the framework cross, go ahead now – and bring forth this cool-looking 80s cartoon wizard. Oh – and I may have forgot to mention it up top, but he’s also one of the ‘good guys’.
To the board!…
Pretty neat looking when complete – this easy-to-draw character looks even better when colored. I always remember him being magenta (his cloak) – and having a violet/purple scarf. Slight variation though – and it’s sure to look OK.
Well – that’s all for this lesson. More to come! 🙂
