Step 2.

Description: This tutorial will show you "<em><strong>how to draw a Terran Marine from Starcraft</em></strong>", step by step. I will go over simple techniques on how to produce a finished pencil drawing. The steps work from starting with basic construction lines, then to detail lines and finally on shading. Looking at reference images will greatly help you through this tutorial. I believe this is an intermediate level tutorial, but beginners can follow it for practice to help their techniques. I would suggest using only B pencils, 3B and 5B would be best, and a HB for the light construction lines. Also have an eraser, the softer the better, and some Tortilion, or tissue paper if you have none.
