How to Draw Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl


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


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


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


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


Now draw Chace's eyebrows and eyes.


Observe where Chace's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his nose, mustache growth, and mouth.


Watch closely how Chace's face outline, jawline, chin, ears, and a bit of beard growth relate to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.


When you sketch his hair, add those straight lines and curles. And use short, jagged lines for his hair at his ear. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair. This will help as you shade it in.


Now draw in his neck and shirt collar. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.


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.


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    


This time Acrylics has won! Sandpaper, the new kid on the block has to take a back seat to my wonderful Titanium White or Opaque White Watercolors for HIGHLIGHTS! Yaaaa! Try it, you'll like it!


The picture that goes with this step shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/det   


PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE -- For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.


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

After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.


This is the first start with the pastel application. 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 c   


Here I used my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, add more shading to his hair eyebrows, side of face, neck and shirt with the dark gray pastels. I needed to whiten areas like some hair strands and catch lights in his eyes and did this with a kn   


I sketched in more facial hairs with my 9B and 0.7mm pencils. With the 0.7mm mechanical pencil (HB lead), I defined the hair strands and added more facial hair. I applied 9B to darkly shaded areas in his hair. My small tortillon helped to add details   


I covered the top portion of my background with black and gray pastels. I smoothed the background with a blending stump. I took my Kneaded Eraser to make circular shapes and cleaned up any dulled white areas. With the 9B Graphite pencil, I darkened t   


"Faint!" I could do the dance of joy. I have finally FINISHED!!! Basically, I added more highlights with Opaque Watercolor to the catch lights in his eyes, added more light hair strands for that cool long haircut. I added pen stripes to his collar al
