How to Draw Brandi and Jarrod, Storage Wars, Brandi and Jarrod

Artist: catlucker / May 1, 2013

Step 1.

Draw the ovals lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw them as seen in the picture.

Step 2.

Now draw in the two bisecting lines to balance their facial features.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass. The 2nd head shape has one crescent because Jarrod's head is clean shaven and has no hairline.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, d. for mouth, e. for shoulders.

Step 5.

Now draw in Brandi and Jarrod's forehead wrinkles, eyebrows, and eyes.

Step 6.

Observe where Brandi & Jarrod's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in their noses, shadow lines, his mustache, and mouths. Also remember to draw in Jarrod's clean shaven head.

Step 7.

Now draw in his ears and the profile of their jawlines.

Step 8.

Now look closely at how the lines of Brandi's hair flow together within the guidelines. Take your time to draw those waves. Observe Jarrod's beard hair lines and follow the direction of the curve. Patience is your best friend because with it, you'll    

Step 9.

Last but not least, draw in the second side of her hair. Also sketch in Jarrod's neck and T-shirt. If you want, you can draw in "Outlaw" on his t-shirt. If you haven't already, you can now erase your guidelines. The lines you couldn't erase, go ahead   

Step 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

Step 11.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Take you kneaded eraser and dab off the shadow outlines or dark    

Step 12.

I didn't want to skip this. The first picture shows how to hold your pencil for Overhand (great for writing & details) and Underhand (great for shading large areas in wide strokes). You can practice tone shading and take it a step further with the To   

Step 13.

Here is how the tools look. I used the 0.7mm 2B mechanical pencil, 9B pencil, tissue, and the blending stump.

Step 14.

Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But he   

Step 15.

This is the first start. This is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. I appli   

Step 16.

What's interesting is I haven't used a pencil yet during this stage. I took a tortillon (since the area was smaller than usual, being two faces on the paper) and shaded laying the tortillon's tapered part flat (like a pencil) on their skin. Then I to   

Step 17.

I sketched in the shading slightly darker with my 9B pencil on his face. I used a No. 2 pencil on her face because it's lighter and has a smoother shadow transition. The highlighted areas of their skin, I sketched very lightly in order to even the to   

Step 18.

Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. This time, I noticed her right eye facing me was too small. TIP: For small corrections like that with a small picture, a magnifying glass is great. Or you can   

Step 19.

Here I added more highlights and lighter hair strands. But I needed to darken the shadowed areas in her hair near her face. This is from looking at the reference picture. You darken with your pencil or pastel. To lighten you can do this with white pa
