How to Draw Caesar from Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Artist: Dawn / December 28, 2014

Step 1.

Begin by simply sketching out the facial guidelines for Caesar's face.

Step 2.

Next, begin sketching out the face in a bold, prominent manner. The brows have to be strong looking and appear like they are hoovering over the eyes.

Step 3.

Up next, sketch in the shape of the nose. As you can see it starts out narrow at the top, then widens along the sides and comes back in at the base.

Step 4.

All you have to do here is draw in Caesar's eyes. They should be stern with expression and full of life.

Step 5.

Finish the nose by drawing the nostril openings, then slowly start sketching the thin lined creases, wrinkles and bags under the eyes to make Caesar's face look realistic and alive.

Step 6.

Up next, we will sketch out the shape or facial structure of Caesar's face. Notice that the chin and jaw are very strong, wide and bold. Draw in the mouth using a single line, then add a lip and creases at the corner of each end of his mouth.

Step 7.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is sketch in the forehead wrinkles or creases at the top of the head. When that is complete, add the soft hair line. You can then erase your mistakes as well as the facial guidelines you made in step one.

Step 8.

Here is the finished line art drawing when you have completed the task of sketching out Caesar from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I hope you had fun and I also hope you are happy with your end results.

Description: As promised I have two lessons that will blow the minds of those who are fans of the two films 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' and 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'. I actually got the idea to make these two lessons from a member who sent in a request to do a tut on some characters from the Planet of the Apes movies. I will start with how to draw Caesar from Rise of the Planet of the Apes, step by step. If you remember, he is the one that James Franco took care of in his home and is the ape that showed signs of intelligence. I liked the first movie that showcased Caesar, but I still didn't see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I hope you like this tut folks, I will return with another ape from the movie series.
