Step 1.

Begin the first step by drawing the shape of Charles' head like so. Sketch in the facial guidelines then proceed to step two.

Step 2.

For this next step you will begin sketching out the round shape of the face followed by the loose wavy hairstyle.

Step 3.

You will finish drawing Charles' hairstyle or do by closing off the shape. Once you do that make sure to still add that curl that folds upward at the bottom of the hair line.

Step 4.

Let's begin the drawing process for his eyes and nose. For the eyes all you have to do is make the thick eyebrows at first, then sketch in the small shape of his nose. Of course this is the younger version of Charles Dickens.

Step 5.

Continue working on the face by sketching out the shapes of the eyes, then draw in the mouth or lip line. You will need to add that crease above the eye for the lid.

Step 6.

Now you can finish this writer off by sketching out the shape of his neck, then draw in the jacket collar and shirt line.

Step 7.

You are now done with your drawing on Charles Dickens. Add some color and show folks who you have just drawn.
