How to Draw Corey Taylor, Slipknot

Artist: DuskEyes969 / October 6, 2013

Step 1.

We begin with 3 steps to making the sketch, a simple sketch , don't overflow it with details .

Step 2.

With the high contrast in this drawing and the white mask, you don't need a great deal of effort in drawing his mask. Just make sure to get the eye and ear holes right , also , the shadow under his jaw. Shadows reveal volume and shape .

Step 3.

Along with the shadow , ad details to that part of the jacket . From that we're going to move down .

Step 4.

After drawing the knots that hold the mask on his face , make little white lines next to the dark string on the top of his mask .Use either white pastel or a kneaded eraser.

Step 5.

Ok, time for something easier . There is a large portion of darkness in this drawing . You have to determine exactly where these zones are. I've already done this for you, so just go along with me .

Step 6.

After the fun part it's time for the details . This sleeve has no grey in it so you don't need to worry about that. It's all black and white. Remember to use a mechanical pencil . You can still get a dark surface using only a 2B if the tip is sharp.

Step 7.

Normally I would have only moved up to the hand and fingers but I got carried away and made a few wrinkles on his jacket. You don't have to if you don't want to , yet .

Step 8.

Now the shadows under his fingers and you're done with the arm. I've started making the details from the left side of the drawing because I used my right hand to draw. If you're left handed I would advice you to start from the right side so you don't   

Step 9.

The wrinkles on the jacket look tricky but it's a lot like drawing a tribal design . You draw the outline of the visible ares and the fill in with black around them . Then ad a few shadows on the white ares and you're done .

Step 10.

You can see now why I asked you not to make a very detailed sketch . Aslo notice the path we're drawing on .

Step 11.

This is what I was talking about a few steps earlier . Draw the outline of the white zones, then fill with black around them .

Step 12.

This and the following steps don't reveal anything new that what I've already told you. I just made them so it doesn't seem too much at once .

Step 13.

I remade the 8 on his arm, because I couldn't predict how thing would look at this stage.

Step 14.

You are done. The background, as always, is optional. Use cotton and graphite powder to make it.

Description: Hello people! Today I have another Slipknot member to show you , this time it's the singer, the famous Corey Taylor. This man is a genius , having two bands , each with distinct characteristics , this man is one of the most iconic singers in this era of metal . His voice can vary from calm and soft to brutal and violent , his slow songs can make you cry while his brutal ones make you want to smash up your room along with everyone in it. One of the first things that pops into mind when a slipknot fan hears his name, is his mask. Over the years he has changed his mask along with the rest of the band's members. Each has a very unique mask, which they put on just for show .Well, I hope you maggots like this , because it took forever. Enjoy ! :)
