How to Draw Brandon Lee, Brandon Lee

Step 1.


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

Step 2.


Now draw in the bisecting line to balance his facial features.

Step 3.


Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.


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

Step 5.


Now draw The Crow's eyebrows, eyes, and black paint with spikes surrounding the eyes/eyebrows.

Step 6.


Observe where The Crow's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his nose, and dark mouth with the hair strand.

Step 7.


Now draw in the profile of his jawline and chin.

Step 8.


This is for both steps 8 and 9. I divided the hair in two separated parts to make it easier for you to focus. Look closely at how the lines of his hair and strokes flow downward. Take your time to draw those curls and waves. Patience is your best fri   

Step 9.


Please draw in the second portion of the hair. Notice there are more detailed curls so take your time. If you haven't already, you can now erase your guidelines. The lines you couldn't erase, go ahead and blend them in if you will be shading your dra   

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.


Here is a quick tip on different types of hair. In the picture follow the arrows. They represent the direction of the strokes to get that hair shine. You can practice this now or later. Straight, a curl, cornrows, or a single braid is just a few ways   

Step 16.


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. Applied   

Step 17.


What's interesting is I haven't used a pencil yet during this stage. I took a blending stump (since it won't leave lines and will cover a larger area) and shaded laying the stump tapered part flat (like a pencil) on his skin and large portions of his   

Step 18.


I sketched in darker with my 9B pencil on the shadowed area on his face, filled in his hair more, darkened the hair shadow lines on his face (with my 2B mech pencil). I took my kneaded eraser and lightened areas on his face by looking at the referenc   

Step 19.


Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. This time, I first blended the pencil sketches with my toritllon to give a smooth transition. I added more dark tones and details to his hair, face, and neck    

Step 20.


Here I added darker tones of black hair and light gray curly strands from looking at the reference picture. You can do this with your pencil. I also smoothed his face, hair, and neck by blurring with my digital program. I darkened his shoulder and ne

Description: This is the amazingly talented Brandon Lee, the son to the famous Bruce Lee, in the popular cult movie The Crow. Combining his martial arts skill, focused mentality, beauty, and sensitivity to this role made the movie something far more than anticipated. When I heard of his death from an accidental shooting on set there was no way to avoid the pain of loss in my heart. He left many to mourn his passing. I am honored to do this tutorial and I hope you will enjoy drawing this awesome person and character. Please fav, show your love, and comment. Thank you all. Peace and love to you.
