How to Draw Depression

Artist: Dawn / June 18, 2014

Step 1.

To start the first step all you have to do is draw out the head guide, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Define the shape of the head like so, and be sure there is a notch along the head too because this person is supposed to look like they are breaking down.

Step 3.

Finish sketching out the face, then draw the nose. You will also need to draw the ear too.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw in the beady eyes, then sketch in the small lips. Add detailing to the inside of the ear too. Slowly sketch in the cracks on the skin's surface, as I said, this face is breaking apart as the person inside becomes mor   

Step 5.

For the last step all you have to do is sketch out the shape of the neck, shoulders and then add the cracks on the body the way you see it done here. Erase your mistakes and you are all done.

Step 6.

Now color in the depressed face you see before you now. I hope you enjoyed this submission.

Description: Okay guys, I don't know how many of you would enjoy this lesson on something totally made from concept. Here is how to draw Depression, step by step. When I came up with the idea I felt bad for my sister who was depressed because she wanted to go to a concert but couldn't because she had no one to go with. Depression is something that is hereditary, and very common in young adults, adults and sometimes even children. Anyways, you can add whatever you like to the drawing to make it your own. This lesson is just on drawing depression as a concept. Have fun and let me know what you think of the idea by showing the love.
