How to Draw Dr Who, Draw Doctor Who, Doctor Who

Step 1.


Draw the oval lightly and make sure you tilt it as seen in the picture.

Step 2.


Now draw in the bisecting line to balance his facial features.

Step 3.


Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.


You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, d. for mouth placements.

Step 5.


Now draw the eyebrow placements and eyes.

Step 6.


Examine the guidelines and notice how his cheek and jawline appear next to the left side of the guidelines. Also observe where his features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his irises, pupils, nose, mouth, ear, and neck placement.

Step 7.


Now you can draw in his hairline and sideburns and shoulder. Make sure you draw in the short line strokes for his hair & sideburns. If not, his hair will look like a wig.

Step 8.


Now complete your drawing with his full hair. Try mimicking how the hair flows, including the featured look with that lock of hair drooping over the side of his face. Finish his bow, collar and jacket. Remember his neck placement over the collar...ad   

Step 9.


I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Those random very light lines are guidelines to shade different areas. You can add or ignore them.

Step 10.

Step 11.


You can shade with your pencil in straight lines or circles. I used only the 0.7mm mechanical pencil. If you only have the No. 2 pencil, continue to use it. You do need to apply more pressure at certain points for darker shading. At this point, light   

Step 12.


I added depth to the sketch by using my 9B pencil. This is where you need to use more pressure with the No. 2 pencil.

Step 13.


Use a tissue because it lifts darker graphite and more evenly spreads across the picture. Make sure you do not rub over his main features, as you will lose the details. Just blend over major parts of his face and bow tie. Lightly blend with tissue ov   

Step 14.


Click on this picture for tips on tone, shading, texture, and reflective light.

Step 15.


After doing all the detailed shading and blending, highlights with opaque white are the last thing I add on top of dark areas. It's easy and quick. I don't have to draw the highlight detail in by erasing or not drawing over. Those tiny hair wisps are   

Step 16.


Here is the final outcome. Your picture can look like this or different. Know that you have learned so much, drew a lot, and you've successfully completed this tutorial with your own beautiful creation. I hope you upload it here at DragoArt and tell
