First, we need to draw the character without accessories. You can begin with the head, the body and the legs that are all made from rectangles. The arms are also done from rectangles while the hands and feet are illustrated with circular shapes. Complete this step by adding the eyes and pupils using circles and the mouth using a curved line.
For this second step, you can draw a large helmet as shown below. The top and the sides of the object are done using curved lines. The part just above the eyes is created from rectangles. Complete this helmet by adding three small circles on both sides and on top.

The armor, the helmet, the spear and the shield are all filled with a dark grey color. Some parts inside the helmet, near the legs and on the spear are darker. The eyes are white and the pupils are blue.
