First, you must use some calculations from fluid dynamics - start parameters and choosing a airfoil. In calculations you will decide number of stages, angle of airfoils on stator and rotor, axes revolution, also you got a working temperatures, after then employ a static calculations to decide a profile looking - (sizing from breaking). There is a more steps but first step is to use theory. After that drawing is easy.
