How To Draw Craig Robinson, Craig Robinson

Artist: MichaelY / June 19, 2013

Step 1.

To draw Craig Robinson, we should first sketch out some basic construction lines. Use a 2H or harder pencil and sketch very lightly so that the lines are easy to erase later on after we ink. This will be a 3/4 angle. Be sure to draw crisscross constr   

Step 2.

Use your middle horizontal construction line to help place the eyes evenly on the head. They rest slightly high on his head compared to most people. Be sure that the iris and pupils are looking in the exact same direction and are perfectly round. Dra   

Step 3.

Robinson has a large, bulbous nose. Use the vertical construction line to help place it in the center of the face. The tip of the nose is especially large and rounded, but the bridge of the nose has a smooth inward curve to it as it connects to the e   

Step 4.

Now draw his mouth which is roughly half way between his nose and chin, perhaps even a tad higher than that. He should have large lips and they should be parted so we can see his lower row of teeth. It's part of his well know blank stare. Draw short,   

Step 5.

Draw the outer contours of his face and jaw line. He has a wide, round face with square jaw.

Step 6.

We should only be able to see his right ear from this angle. The top of the ear should align with the bottom of the eyes, the bottom of the ear should align with the opening of the mouth. Robinson has huge earlobes that take up about 1/3 of the ear's   

Step 7.

His hair is fairly short. It is very thick and course. Don't worry about drawing individual strands of hair since it will be entirely blacked out after we ink.

Step 8.

Robinson typically has a short beard. It should cover the sides of his face and wrap around his mouth. Be careful not to draw the whiskers too high on the sides of the cheeks, and it should not entirely fill in the area below his lower lip. Again, th   

Step 9.

Draw his thick neck. The back of his neck should protrude from beneath his earlobe, the front should be just in front of his chin. The bottom of his neck can be cut off by a curved line for the collar of his tee shirt.

Step 10.

Draw the upper shoulders of his tee shirt which should have a few vertical creases and folds in it.

Step 11.

If you'd like to make things a little more interesting, you can give him a chain necklace as an accessory. It should hang loosely around his neck and be fairly thin. Take your time drawing the individual links of the chain linking through one another   

Step 12.

We can now move on to inks! Use either Micron markers, or a brush and India ink to do your inking. Carefully go over each line with patience and be sure not to ink any guide lines. When the ink has totally dried, erase your pencil marks with a kneade   

Step 13.

You can add a greater sense of depth to the image by giving it shadow and blacking out certain areas. Use either a thick felt tip marker, or a brush and ink to do so. Establish your light source and black out the opposite side of the figure. In this    

Step 14.

If you need to make any corrections you can use white ink or opaque white paint. You can also use it do add highlights if needed, like I did along the edge of his beard. And that's how you draw Craig Robinson! Nice job!
