I am a great drawer, but I cannot draw microfigures! You may think that because I am young I won't be great I really am, but I need help drawing this, on paper.

Whilst it's not in our sites interest to discuss drafting, I think it can be a very important tool for creative design. I think this is a good question for our site. –  Ambo100 Apr 5 '12 at 17:17

Since you'll be working at a scale you may prefer to use graph paper. You can print your own if you don't have any, this will make it easier. Use a ruler, pencil and a rubber to draw your microfigure.

A microfigure is roughly 2/7 legs, 2/7 torso and 3/7 head high, It should also be 3 squares wide. You may find the diagram below makes it easier to visualise:

At this stage the most important thing to concentrate on is symmetry.

Symmetry is common in nature, human beings and even more so with Lego. Bricks wouldn't be as compatible as they are now if they didn't have a sense of symmetry.

For now, concentrate on the vertical symmetry (top-to-bottom). In my sketch I've drawn out the three boxes first and added a few rough outlines within the guidelines. These guidelines can be erased later when you have finished.

If you can draw Microfigures, you can draw Minifigures. All it takes is a change of scale.

Take a look at:

  1. How to Draw a Lego Minifigure with Easy Step by Step Drawing Tutorial
  2. How to Draw LEGO Men
  3. How to Draw a LEGO

Personally number 3 looks like the best bet to me.

The instructions in these links could be adapted for the micro-figure rather then the minifigure, although they are more "representations" of figures. –  Zhaph - Ben Duguid Apr 4 '12 at 22:05

@Zhaph-BenDuguid doh, I got the wrong figure type. –  Joshua Drake Apr 5 '12 at 12:29
