Artist: Dawn / August 28, 2013

Step 1.

Start with the shape of the head guide like so then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Next, begin drawing out Adam Young's hairstyle which is a long side bang on the left side, and shorter hair that covers his ear on the right side. Add detailing to his hair and move to step three.

Step 3.

All you have to do here is sketch out the shape of the face which is narrow and long. Draw in his nose and then move to step four.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to sketch out the shapes of the eyes, then once you have made the top lid darker, you can proceed to step five.

Step 5.

Sketch out the eyebrows which are lighter than normal, then add some eyeballs.

Step 6.

Sketch in Adam's smile, then draw the bottom lip, indent on his cheek, then the angels kiss above the top lip.

Step 7.

You are almost done with this lesson on Adam Young. All you have to do is draw the neck, then draw in the V lined collar for his shirt.

Step 8.

Sketch out the jacket collar and then his shoulders. As you can see Adam is leaning towards the left a bit with his right shoulder lifted higher. Erase the mistakes and you are all done.

Step 9.

Here is the line art once you are finished. Color in your sketch of Adam Young and you are done.

Description: I must have gotten at least forty requests for me to make a lesson on "how to draw Adam Young" from Owl City. I don't know what the heck the deal is, I thought he only made a few songs but I guess I was wrong. I do know that he has a song with Carly Rae Jepsen that is pretty popular, but that is all I know of except for Fireflies. Anyways, Adam Young was born in 1986 which makes him around twenty six or twenty seven years old. He wrote the song Fireflies from his parents basement along with other songs. I guess he suffered from insomnia which is why he wrote so many songs. Anyways, drawing Adam Young should be relatively easy so I hope you have fun. For those of you that like his music this lesson should be exciting and bright. Peace out folks and stay tuned in for more tuts coming your way.
