How to Draw Castiel, Supernatural, Misha Collins

Artist: catlucker / January 5, 2013

Step 1.

To allow for more shading steps, I've cut down the guidelines. Let me know if this works for you. With the No. 2 pencil, start lightly drawing the oval, bisecting line, and crescent lines (for head mass). Then lightly draw lines a. for eyebrows, b. f   

Step 2.

Observe where Castiel's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his forehead wrinkles, eyebrows, eyes, and bags underneath eyes.

Step 3.

When you sketch his hair, add those straight lines and curls. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair. This will help as you shade it in.

Step 4.

Now draw in his nose, the shadow, face cheek line, facial hair, and slightly opened mouth.

Step 5.

Pay attention to the placement of his ears, jawline, chin, and neck relate to the guidelines. Now draw them.

Step 6.

Sketch in his trench coat, which includes the collar, seams, and button. Don't forget his shirt and part of his suit lapel. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

Step 7.

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 8.

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 9.

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

Step 10.

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 11.

If you do the whole picture in a pencil sketch, 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   

Step 12.

I took my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, add more strokes to his hair. His eyebrows, cheeks, chin, neck and jacket I also smoothed with my blending stump, making these a bit darker. I used a tissue (which is soft) to smooth out his face arou   

Step 13.

I darkened in his eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, lips, face shadows, and trench coat details with my 9B graphite pencil and dark gray pastels. Then I blended with my blending stump to give a smooth texture.

Step 14.

Basically, you can add more highlights with Titanium White Acrylics to the catch lights in his eyes, more hair strands, the side of his face, and on his lip's shine. I also added more accurate hair strands in a light gray. TIP: I lightened this pictu   

Step 15.

Without highlights, your picture would have a flat appearance. Click on this picture to learn how to make your own picture POP out!
