How to Draw Beethoven


Begin by drawing the guide for the head and face like so. You will then sketch in the facial guidelines.


Here we will define the shape of Beethoven's face and then draw in the hairline and some hair on the side of his face.


Use the facial guidelines to draw out the eyes. This should be thick, bold lines to make his eyes expressive.


You will now draw the shapes of his eyebrows. They should be pretty thick. Once that is done you can color in the pupils and then draw the nose and mouth.


Add a messy style for the hair. As you know Beethoven wasn't all too concerned on how he looked.


Almost done guys. We will now draw in his shirt collar and then draw the shoulders and ruffle down the middle of his jacket or coat.


Lastly, add some defining lines on the coat, then erase your mistakes and guidelines.


Here is Beethoven when you are all done. Now you can choose to add color, or go with some shading.

Description: This lesson means a lot to me because I am a huge fan of classical music and every song composed and played by Ludwig van Beethoven. This tutorial is going to show you how to draw Beethoven, step by step. Now, some fun facts about Beethoven. When he was just thirteen years old he had already begun to sell his sonatas. Throughout his whole career, he wrote a total of nine symphonies with his first movement being the most popular of all. Although, when it was first out in the public, people seen the symphony as a joke because of how short it was. Beethoven never married, but he did have an Immortal Beloved, but to this day no one knows who that beloved was. While witnessing Beethoven play, the very popular Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart said to his peers that one day this Lad will force the world to talk about him and guess what, they did. Ludwig Van Beethoven was born December 17, 1770 in Bonn, Germany and died March 26, 1827, he was fifty seven years old. His music lives on and is played in symphonies today. I hope you enjoy drawing this musical genius, I know I did.
