Axl Rose Drawing Lesson

Artist: Dawn / April 10, 2017

Step 1.

Let's start with Axl's head guide first and then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Axl has a face that is very chiseled. You will define his face shape in this step and don't forget to add the indents along the jaw bone.

Step 3.

We will now utilize the facial guidelines to draw in his beautiful eyes. Once that is done you can sketch out the shape of his nose. Add some shading to his eyes too.

Step 4.

Up next, draw in the eyebrows in a sketchy manner, then draw the eyes, and wrinkles under the eyes. They also look like bags. Draw in Axl's mouth and lips.

Step 5.

We will draw the scarf that he wears on his head and when you do this you will need to draw in the wrinkles and creases on headband.

Step 6.

Draw the first big rose right under Axl's face. This should be detailed in a very simple but neat manner. Once the rose is done you can proceed to step seven.

Step 7.

Up next, draw in another rose. There are roses under Axl's face to showcase his involvement of Guns n Roses.

Step 8.

We will add a third rose. Take your time as you draw out this rose as well. We want a nice flow of roses cupping Axl's face. Almost like a frame.

Step 9.

For step nine you will draw in the last two roses. As you can see the inner rose is bigger then the rose on the end. When you are done drawing roses, move to step ten.

Step 10.

Finally, finish the drawing by sketching in Axl's long straight hair, his neck and then his sunglasses on top of his head. Erase your mistakes and all the guidelines you made.

Step 11.

When you are done W. Axl Rose should look like the drawing you see here. Great work people, don't forget to show off your skills.

Description: Of all the portraits I have done in the past this has got to be my favorite by far. I know some of you are saying, "oh boy, another Axl Rose lesson", but to me this is a drawing on a person that has always been part of my life. I have listened to Guns N Roses since I was just a small little kid. My father was a big time fan of Guns n Roses and still is. This Axl Rose drawing lesson is going to be super fun and so realistic that it almost makes you want to kiss his lips or reach into the screen to touch him. I love how I took his typical style look and turned it into a beautiful drawing of this eighties star. Even though Guns n Roses is no longer together, to me they will always hold a special place in my heart. I do hope you enjoy this tut on Axl Rose, it was so fun to draw and color.
