How to Draw Chester Bennington

Artist: Dawn / July 22, 2017

Step 1.

Start off with a simple head guide like so, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Here you will define the shape of Chester's head and face structure like so.

Step 3.

All you have to do here is take your time as you sketch in Chester's ear shapes. Add detailing inside the ears, then also add the thick gauge ear wear.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw out the shapes of his eyes like you see it done for you here.

Step 5.

Add the rest of the eye shape to Chester's eyes like so, then draw in the eyeballs.

Step 6.

You can now draw in his nose like so. This should be a simple task as well.

Step 7.

Give Chester Bennigton some thick eyebrows as you color them in. Notice that the eyebrows are in a crinkled style or pose to show off his expression.

Step 8.

Add the frown lines on the sides of the nose, then sketch in the lips or mouth. Notice how I added the indents to the chin to bring his face off the page a bit.

Step 9.

Since Chester has short hair, all you have to do is sketch in the thin hairline which is made up of a few specks.

Step 10.

Now you can add the neck shape, the shoulders, the rope from his necklace, and then add detailing to the throat. Erase the mistakes and guides as well.

Step 11.

Here is Chester Bennington all ready to be colored or shaded in.

Description: "R.I.P Chester Bennington, you will be missed." Well, you have a lesson on Mike Shinoda, and now you will have a tutorial on another band member from Linkin Park as well. Here is how to draw Chester Bennington, step by step. Dragoart does have a lesson on Chester, but it is a video tutorial that Teton upload some years ago and it's not even theirs, it was actually uploaded because she had asked me to do a tut on drawing Chester Bennington, but somehow it totally slipped my mind until I received yet another request for this lead singing star. Chester Bennington was born in Phoenix, Arizona on March 20, 1976. In 1996 the band Linkin Park was formed and he was added as the new lead singer in place of Mark Wakefield. Chester is also the lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots, and is still very active in his singing/acting career. I hope you like this lesson folks, I worked hard on it to make sure Chester Bennington was accurate in every sense of the word.
