How to Draw A Hoodie – Let’s Get Started!
To begin this guide on how to draw a hoodie, let’s begin with the part of the garment that it gets its name from: the hood!
This will be quite a simple step, and we shall draw in the hood by drawing in a sharply curved line that looks like the one in our reference image. With that drawn, we can move on to the next step!
Step 2 – Now, start on the arms of the hoodie
With the hood drawn in, you can now begin on the arms of your hoodie drawing. For the arm on the left, simply draw a line from just above where the left side of the hood ends.
The line for this arm will curve sharply before heading up towards the hood again. With that arm done, you can then repeat the process except mirrored on the right-hand side.
Step 3 – Next, let’s add a body to the hoodie
Now that you have the hood and arms done, you can move on to the body of your hoodie drawing! This is another step that shouldn’t be too challenging if you have made it this far!
Using the reference picture as a guide, the line for the body of the hoodie will start from under the arm.
It will almost touch the top of the arm line, but there should be a little space between the lines.
The body of the hoodie will take on a fairly rectangular shape, and will begin and end under the arms.
While the shape will be vaguely rectangular, be sure to have a slight curve at the corners of the hoodie.
Step 4 – Draw in some more features for your hoodie
In this step of our guide on how to draw a hoodie, we shall be adding in even more details to it.
Firstly, a hoodie would be a bit pointless if it didn’t have a hole for your head to go through! We don’t want this to be a pointless hoodie, so let’s add a hole to your hoodie drawing.
The shape for the hole will be rounded at the top, but end in a sharper, thin point at the bottom of the hoodie.
Now that you have this vital part of the hoodie, we shall add in some cuffs to the hoodie. To do this, simply draw in some thin shapes to the ends of the arms of your hoodie.
Once you have that done, you can draw in a similar shape to the bottom of the body of the hoodie. Once it looks like the picture, you’re good to go for some final details!
Step 5 – Let’s draw in some last details now
Your hoodie drawing is almost finished now! You’ll be ready to add in some color very soon, but before that, we should add some final details to your drawing.
Firstly, use some wavy lines underneath the hole for the head to make the strings of the hoodie.
Then, draw in some slightly curved lines to the body of the hoodie to make some pockets for it.
Lastly, simply draw in some lines to the shapes you made at the ends of the arms and the body of the hoodie for some extra texture details.
These are the final details that we would add, but feel free to add in any fun details you would like!
Step 6 – Finish off your hoodie drawing with some color
The hoodie is drawn, the final details have been added and you’ve almost reached the end of this guide on how to draw a hoodie!
We hope that it was fun drawing your hoodie, because at this step the fun only goes on! For this step, you should really let your creativity run wild and show us what creativity you have!
We colored in our image with a pretty light blue, so this is one way you could go about it! You shouldn’t let this limit you though, and you should go with whatever colors you love!
Another fun way you could personalize your hoodie drawing would be to add a fun design to the front of the hoodie.
This could be anything from the logo of your favorite music artist, a movie you love or the face of a beloved pet!
What design and colors do you think you would add to this hoodie? You can also have a great time trying out some great art mediums such as paints, watercolors or colored pens for some wonderful color details!
