Drawing Bruce Lee

Artist: Dawn / January 27, 2016

Step 1.

Make the guide shape for Bruce Lee's face and then sketch in the facial guidelines as well as the neck line.

Step 2.

Up next, draw in the actual face structure. As you can see Bruce Lee's face is angled or chiseled looking and he has his short hairline framing the face as well.

Step 3.

You will use the facial guidelines to draw Bruce Lee's nose, then draw in his lips or mouth the way you see it done here. I focus more on his top lip because that was one of the distinguishing characteristics about Bruce Lee's face.

Step 4.

We will complete the face by drawing the thick eyebrows. Then draw in the shapes of Bruce Lee's eyes with layered creases for the lids.

Step 5.

Sketch out Bruce Lee's neck shape and then draw in the shoulders. When that is done add detailing to the neck which are the neck and collar bones.

Step 6.

Lastly, finish the hairstyle which is also the shape of his head. Erase the guides and mistakes as well.

Step 7.

This is what your drawing of Bruce Less should look like when finished. Now all you need to do is color him in.

Description: A while back I did a lesson on Bruce Lee, but that tutorial wasn't drawn to the standards that I have now and that's mainly because when I made the lesson on drawing Bruce Lee, I was still learning my craft. Back then drawing people was very challenging and it used to take me almost three hours just to get a rough sketch done. Nowadays I know how to draw people, but still those drawings are not perfect. For the next couple days I will be redoing some lessons on people I have drawn in the past in better detail and with cleaner line art. The drawing lessons will also be a whole lot easier to replicate in a tut, so let's start with this new version of how to draw Bruce Lee. I love Bruce Lee, he was a big part of my childhood growing up and even though he is gone, the legend of this gifted karate expert lives on. I hope you enjoy this tut, I will be back with more lessons so don't stray too far.
