In East Asia, there are a lot of traditional clothing that each nation has. Such as Japan, China or even Korea. One of the most well-known traditional clothing in South Korea are “Hanbok”. It’s a traditional Korean clothing that are often worn for traditional occasions such as festivals, celebrations, and ceremonies. As for guy, there are two main components of the Korean Hanboks. It consist of the upper jacket or jeogori and the pants which is baji. It is usually characterized with vibrant colors and simple lines for the Hanbok’s pattern. Therefore, if you want to draw a traditional Korean Clothing, you can follow my instructions. Prepare a paper, a pencil, and an eraser. Now we’re ready to draw!
Step 1: First of all, we’ll start by drawing the guidelines. The purpose of guidelines is to help you estimate the size of the bag and to guide you in drawing the rest. Therefore, we’re going to draw from top to bottom. Therefore, we need to start drawing a circle at first with two straight lines that crossed each other inside the circle. This will be the head guideline. Don’t forget to leave a space below it for the rest of the body.
Step 2: Moving on to the next step. To make the cheeks and the chin, you can start from the left-hand side of the head guideline to create a curved line and end it with another smaller curve line to create ears on both sides (See picture to better understand). Then add two short straight lines (See picture) to give a depth inside each ear.
Step 3: After the previous step, we’ll continue drawing the detail of the face. Now create its eyes by adding wide curves above the horizontal line of the guideline. Then, add two ovals below the curves for the cornea. Add a curved line below the center of the eyes for its nose. Don’t forget to add her mouth by adding two straight lines touching each other (see picture to better understand). Lastly create two uneven and narrow triangles for the eyebrows.
Step 4: After that, we can start drawing the slicked back hair from on top of the forehead. Create uneven zig-zags, then add several straight lines to create the shape of the head on the side of the head (see picture).
Step 5: Now we can continue with the previous part, the top of the hair. Starting from the previous step, draw another straight line from the left line on top, then create another spiky hair by creating zig-zags. After that we can continue with the reverted triangle below the chin to create a V-neck.
Step 6: Then, we can continue to create the body guideline and adding details on top of it. To create the guideline, draw a long vertical rectangle below the V-neck. Then, add the details for the clothing by adding smaller rectangles below the previous V-neck (see picture to better understand).
Step 7: Finally, we can start drawing the details. Start from the previous smaller rectangles, create straight lines in the middle of it (see picture). Then we can create the arms by adding curve lines on both sides. As for the left-hand side of the arm, you can draw another short straight line before you create the hand. After you finish with the arms, you can draw the hand by making several curve lines. Moving on with the next detail would be creating a circle in the middle of the body guideline and create two lines horizontally on both sides. Then lastly add a straight vertical line below the circle.
Step 8: Moving on, we’re going to continue drawing the additional part of the top and the pant. Create a curve line below the body guideline, Then, add two reverted triangle-like shapes with curvy edges (see picture to better understand). The triangle-like shapes would be the pants of the Hanbok.
Step 9: Next, don’t forget to draw two trapeziums for the shoes below the pants.
Step 10: Lastly, If there’s a line that intersecting each other, this is the time to erase it. To see your Hanbok clearly, you’ll need clean lines. Voila! You’ve finished drawing a Traditional Korean Clothing!
Since you’re drawing a Traditional Korean Clothing, you need to look at the actual reference of what you’re going to draw. It is important because drawing Clothing’s form won’t be smooth or symmetrical. Even if it’s symmetrical, the form will still be uneven. You’ll need keen eyes and a lot of practice so you can make your drawing perfect. Good luck!
