Today we will draw an archer. In ancient times it was so difficult to get food as it wasn’t easy to kill an elephant with stones. So later, people learnt to dig the ground, make big holes and entrap poor animals. But this way wasn’t convenient. They had to cook and eat animals in the same holes. Later people found out that it was easier to kill a victim at a high speed. So they made a tool according to this knowledge. Today we will draw a bow and arrows.
An archer is an expert in moving sharp objects in space with the help of a piece of wood and a rope. This tool is popular among those who like to attack from behind. A slingshot is a prototype of a bow.
First all were happy. Bows worked so well. But once an arrow got into a native citizen and everyone understood that it was possible to kill people this way too. Archers were respected and dangerous. They treated their bows as amulets.
- It’s not a big problem to learn to shoot, but it is more difficult to look for arrows.
- The bows could be found in every country except Australia. They had only kangaroos.
- The most of the archers were Chinese, as the form of their eyes helped them to aim better.
If you don’t have a bow, you can draw it together with a beautiful lady archer.
