Learn how to draw a beautiful Buddha with easy, step-by-step drawing instructions and video tutorial.

By following these simple steps, you can easily draw a perfect Buddha. Let's go straight to the step-by-step instructions.

Who is Buddha? Is it just a chubby statue you see in some restaurants? In fact, he was a real person.

We have already talked about him in the article "Is Buddha a real person?" but here are some details about Buddha:

  • He was born between the years 600 and 400 BC. BC in what is now Nepal.
  • The term “Buddha” is not a name. It’s a title that means “the awakened one”; his real name was Gautama. He traveled Asia in search of enlightenment and the meaning of life.
  • His disciples continued to spread his teachings, which became the religion known as Buddhism.

Today, statues of Buddha can be found all over the world. Large statues occupy temples in Japan and other Asian countries.

As people moved around the world, they took their traditions with them. You could now find small, portable Buddha statues in any country in the world - even for sale in a local shop.

4. Sketch Buddha's hair. To do this, draw short curved lines connecting the outside of the egg shapes, enclosing the area where the two ovals met. Then, draw a long curved line connecting these two points inside the figure. Note that the line is vaguely shaped like the letter "M".

7. Detail and texturize the hair. Do this by drawing small circles of different sizes. According to some legends, this texture is not hair at all, but tiny snails that covered Buddha's head to keep him cool while he meditated in the hot sun.

9. Draw the face of Buddha. Shade two thick curved shapes to form the eyebrows. Below the eyebrows, close each eyelid using two curved lines. Strongly shade the bottom line. Extend a pair of lines to form the nose, and finish the shape using two curved lines. Use three curved lines to enclose the lips, and another small curved line under the mouth to add depth to the chin.
